Here are three generations of Dobkins. From left, Evan and Jonah, their dad, Eric, with his dad and their grandfather, Jerry Dobkin. Evan and Jonah like to travel, exercise, watch Lakers games, and cook with their dad, Eric.


Santa Monica native, Tim Kusserow, plans special events with his daughter, Monica, 14, and son, Cha, 12. They enjoy going to the beach, playing "catch" (baseball or football), being read to, and traveling!
