Visions Coming True - Auto Awesome Edition

I just shared the photo album here: https://plus.google.com/+MarkLouie/posts/Mz7xVynzJev but here's the #AutoAwesome video of our experience.

Back when we were dating in college, I thought, "Wouldn't it be wild to have a family and bring our kids here?"  Well, that vision became a reality yesterday and I kept glancing at our kids thinking, "Are we actually here...with them?" unbelieveable

Thanks to coach  +Sam Scholl who hooked us (and ~20 friends) we had an an amazing game experience where we got to sit front row of the student section and hang out with the players for an autograph session.  Rooting for the players was special for me as I've been doing Bible Study with them for a few weeks now.  Loved the determination  in that 2nd half!!!  Afterwards we even got to visit the players dorms and see how they live life (which happened to be where we were for our freshman years!). 

I'm still in awe that we got to experience a college game as a family on OUR campus. 

Much love to , our  family and all the players who made this special for our kids!

Annual Father/Son Baller Time

Another tradition we have is Father/Son Basketball camp at +Santa Clara University.  Boys loved the camp, doing drills and playing games with the Men's Division 1 team.  Love going back to my alma mater...especially with the boys :)

They're so lucky to get exposure to the coaching staff and players, both whom are fun, engaging, and just flat out good guys.  I'm always impressed at how much time they donate to the community and helping others have a great day.

One of the most precious things we have are our memories.  

Photos and Video help capture those moments.  Today, we launched Google Photos which is your "home" to store all the pictures you take on your phone or from your SLR.  We are giving you UNLIMITED storage, for FREE on iOS and Android.  Not only can you have auto-backup, but we also auto-magically create animated pictures, collages, and other fun effects. We're pretty good at search and you can search easily by friends/family, places, or things. Our image processing knows what your pictures are about.  

You can also share using any app like Facebook, Twitter, links, and email.  Go get it today!  I've been using it for months and its amazing to get Google organizing stories (digital scrapbooks), creating fun pictures, finding old pictures and sharing them easily.

Congrats to the Photos Team!!!

An inspirational message I hope my kids take to heart:
"It doesn’t matter where you come from, what you have or don’t have, what you lack or what you have too much of, but all you need to have is faith in God, an undying passion for what you do and what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be successful in whatever you put your mind to.Make sure you live in the moment and work your butt off every single day, and I hope I inspire people all around the world to just be themselves, be humble, and be grateful for all the blessings in your life." - Steph Curry, 2015 MVP speech

Father's Day Tradition: Dating My Kids

I'm so grateful for the undivided attention, deeper discussions, and yummy food :)  1 on 1 time makes this possible.  As much as I enjoy family time, it's the individual time that makes this a special dynamic with no distractions.

My father's day tradition is to have all 3 dates in one day.  Today was brunch with Ethan (he loves breakfast food), lunch with Tyler, and a drink picnic with Mari.  I also get to watch Lord Of The Rings: Two Towers with the boys :)

We started this tradition several years ago, and once a year wasn't enough, so we make sure to at least have monthly dates (just not all in one day :) ).

My 20yr High School Reunion!!!

Festivities began at 5:45am as we raced down to LA to celebrate my 20yr High School Reunion and catch some student and alumni events.  I wanted to share with the kids more of my history as well as expose Tyler and Ethan to what high school life could be like for them.  We heard from some amazing students as they presented their classwork, got an in-depth student led tour (the campus has changed a ton), had a kid friendly picnic (complete with face painting, jumpy houses, food), and catching up with old classmates, and my basketball coach.

My basketball coach is the one responsible for my basketball obsession.  If it wasn't for him giving me a chance to be on the team and play varsity ball, I would've missed out on a crucial foundation.  Thank you coach for believing in me!!!

I also showed the kids some HISTORIC places, like where I pee'd in my pants waiting for my mom to pick me up from tennis lessons, where I got into a car accident, where I proposed to Diana (14 years ago), mom and dad's Glendale house, and the Fire Road (amazing view),  I recounted tons of memories I had growing up in LA, and got to share/show lots of them to the kids.

We stayed with our dear family friends who spoiled us rotten with delicious homemade meals, comfy beds for all, and hours upon hours of sharing and catching up.

Loved the precious family time in LA!

3x3 Rec Division Champs!

Thank you to my teammates for getting us Division Champs.  Love playing with athletic, high basketball IQ guys.  Play continued and the event combined everyone where we had an early exit to a team that had an SCU alum (who starred on the team and played professionally in Germany for 7 years), and they eventually won the entire thing!  They're obviously very very very good :)

Thanks to our player/coach Nate (who's 6'7") for cheering us on!

Looking forward to this annual tradition next year!
