Coach Jonno is part of our extended soccer family and he came to us some months ago asking Travis to pick a charity that he could raise some money for in Travis’ honor.  With so many great organizations we have come across throughout our journey that was a very difficult decision to make.  But, Travis […]

As we wound down our second annual participation in the Relay for Life event this weekend, we couldn’t help but feel so much love and support after coming together for such a great cause.  We started out with a few challenges but continued to march on to fulfill our mission which fit right in with […]

Once again, our Faith & Works group has arranged for all of us to participate in the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life” which we will do in Encinitas this year.  The idea is that we will participate in a 24 hour relay where our team will have someone, or multiple people, walking on the […]

Happy Mother’s Day! 5/11/2014

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mothers!  We had a great day with a picnic lunch at the Leo Carrillo Ranch which is one of Lynne’s favorite places.  It takes her back to her early days watching “The Cisco Kid” on TV (fyi, Leo Carrillo was Pancho in the TV show).  Several years ago, […]

Spring is Rollin’ Along! 5/9/2014

You know, we were just saying that it has been a while since our last update but we were shocked to see that it has been more than a month.  Wow!  Where did a month go?  Since we can barely remember the details from a few days ago, maybe we will just hit the highlights […]

Back in January, Lynne talked Travis into submitting a poem for the “Pets Add Life” poetry contest.  The poem was for children between grades 3-8 and they were supposed to tell about the “joys and benefits of owning pets.”  After some coaxing and prodding, Travis set out to create his masterpiece.  Here is Travis’ poem: […]

Happy Birthday Cisco! 3/27/2014

Thursday, 3/27, was our pup Cisco’s third birthday!  In some ways, it is hard to believe that 3 years have gone by so fast while in other ways, it is hard to imagine life before him.  Since the boys could talk, they always asked about having a dog.  Over the years, we have had Hermie […]

What a Difference a Year Makes! 3/20/2014

Thursday, 3/20/14, was the annual ECC Jog-A-Thon and we couldn’t help but think what a difference a year makes!  This time a year ago, we were just coming home from the hospital and recovering from Travis’ brain surgery.  We had friends stopping by to show their support in so many amazing ways.  One of these […]

1 Year Anniversary of Travis’ Brain Surgery! 3/7/2014

It was Thursday, March 7th, 2013 and Tyler woke up that morning and created a video for Travis so that he could see our dog Cisco, his room, all of his toys and the rest of our house.  It was really nice that Tyler did that and he kept telling Travis that everything was going to […]

1 Year Anniversary of Travis’ Brain Tumor Diagnosis! 3/6/2014

On Wednesday, March 6th, 2013, we woke up in the hospital and found out that the doctors wanted to do an additional MRI of Travis’ head and full spine.  They had done an MRI of his head on Tuesday and wanted to do a more detailed scan.  Tony remembered thinking that it didn’t sound good […]
