Buried Alive

The beach has become our newest obsession. I've never really been big on the beach. But I've discovered with Kayla its a blast! We've gone the last two weekends in a row, today with Maria also (she thought up the whole "burying" idea).

Carrot Face

One of my favorite things about kids is teaching them to try new foods.

She Loves Her Daddy

I printed out a picture of Kayla and her dad cause she has been missing him a lot lately. This was how happy she was.

Just Like Nina

Kayla asked to talk to her dad today. It was completely adorable, as soon as I handed her the phone she put it on her shoulder and walked over and picked up her laptop. She brought it back to the couch and sat and tried to multi-task the same way she see's Nina do. I couldnt stop laughing!

Lazy Day

I was up wayyyy too late last night so when Josie & Kayla came over I was just not ready to be awake. So today we just laid on Josie's mat and snuggled for the day. If you look closely you can see my pillow too.

Kim got a new motorcycle. So Brandon (lol) gave us all rides. I actually took a turn, they really arent my thing but it was fun.

David and I took the kiddos to the Long Beach Aquarium. What did I learn there? Nothing about sea creatures, that I don't want four kids! Even with two adults it was more than enough kids. This photo was taken at the end of the day. Even though there were so many cute happy pictures I chose to use this one because its so "real life" the kids were done and ready to go home and just rebelled against the whole idea of one more picture.

Josie's first trip to the optometrist. She did so well just chilling while they spent forever looking at my eyes. She even let one of the ladies hold her while I was busy. Adorable baby!

Matthew found this at the hotel and said "whoever finishes dinner first gets the candy". Pretty scary huh? Good thing he was telling my dad so he was able to put the dish soap away!

Today I didnt take a picture, but I sooo wanted too! Tonight was my first date with Peter. It was wonderful :) He was great with Josie (I had her cause our date was last minute) and I even met his brother and sister-in-law since they showed up where we were. They were very nice. I'm looking forward to another one soon!!

Lost & Found

I have been missing this coffee cup for a while and its been making me insane. I have 4 hooks for the cups but suddenly there were only 3 cups. I happened to be at Brandon's today and saw it there. Neither one of us know how it got there, and I really dont care, Im just glad to have four hooks and four cups again!

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

This is the latest book I started. So far its really good. And if there are any men out there who truly act like he says a 'real man' does....I wanna find him!

Josie finally fell asleep on the living room floor. She was not having a good day. For some reason she fell asleep when I laid her on the floor to wrap her up. I just left her there. I figured, if she would sleep on the floor than she could sleep there, anywhere, just sleep!

Baby Dinosaur

This is what the baby dinosaur looks like when she is throwing a fit. Just be grateful you cant hear the sound track that goes with it!

I went to Arizona to see Kacie this weekend. We got someone at her party to snap a picture of us, too bad its not the best one. Even though the picture didnt come out so great it was a great weekend. Her friends were wonderfully nice and even though we hadnt seen each other in a few years it was great.

The only scary spot in the weekend was that the fire alarm went off at 2am. I sat bolt upright, and was speaking before I even had my eyes open I think. Im a bit bossy when it comes to stuff like that. I started telling her to find her shoes and get up. I found my shoes and my phone (I realized later I should have went for my purse too) and was opening the door (after feeling for heat of course!) before she even found her shoes. It ended up being a false alarm (no one else was even up and looking out their doors). I couldnt go back to sleep after that cause I kept thinking about all the people who didnt even get up and see what was going on. I kept making Kacie promise me that she would get up when Im not there, no matter how many times the alarm goes off. That was scary!

Kayla and I went to California Adventure today. I was excited because there was a carousel there that had reopened that would be at least different than the horsies I get so sick of. Kayla liked it-requesting to ride a fish. It was a rough trip for some reason. She was perfectly well behaved of course but for some reason she had to go to the potty at least once an hour. And in the end the bathroom we tried to get to was closed and she ended up having an accident. Of course that was the only time Ive gone without a change of clothes too... Needless to say that was the end of our day. Poor kiddo was so embarrassed.

There are chargers and electronic gadgets everywhere at my house. Im crazy about them for about 3 months and then they just get left somewhere. This was my latest pile of chargers...what a mess

Hilda and I went to my mom's to swim for the first time of the summer. She went down the slide, Im too chicken but I like to take pictures of other people doing it.

New Purse

Hilda and I went out to the Cabazon outlet mall because she need a new purse. We both ended up with one. And almost the exactly the same one too. Its the same style, though mine is pink and hers is just a solid black. but talk about a great deal! They were regularly $300 and something and we got them for less than $100, cant go wrong!
