Ouch !

Well, today the boys were outside jumping the ramps on their scooters. Davin knocked on the front door... I opened it to find his handsome little face all chewed up. He didn't even want ice. He just went back outside and joined the boys in jumping ramps again. Boys will be boys. Hopefully, it heals good and doesn't leave scars on his sweet little face. I thank God that he was watching over him when he fell and it wasn't worse.

South Carlsbad

We love going to the beach ! We love going to Carlsbad beach the most. Caden and Davin love searching for seashells, sand dollars, sand crabs and crabs. Somehow I didn't get pictures of them. They must have been off looking for something to find. I did capture a precious moment with Erin and Timeri and Slater. He loves his babies. I wish I could get a picture of Caden freaking out when he gets sand in his shorts. It is probably one of the most annoying things he does every time we go to the beach. He doesn't like sand in his shorts. We always tell him we are at the beach, what do you expect. He stomps around and says get it off of me and wants to leave. Once he settles down all is well. Hopefully it is something he grows out of... I look forward to the day to be able to tease him. For the time being, it is something we try to help understand.

The kids love to swim. Anytime and everywhere we are invited, we go. Grethcen had invited Michelle and I over to swim. I am grateful for friends that have pools and invite us over to cool off.

Caden and Melina.

Timeri's circus day at preschool



Every year at Timeri's preschool, Miss Peggy has all the kids preform in a circus. She dresses all of them up in adorable costumes and they preform various acts. Timeri loved putting on the makeup. Unfortunately, Timeri ended up getting sick right before it started so we had to leave. Here is pictures of Miss Peggy and our pretty little angel.

Grammie Ginger's pool

Our special friends Carol and Bill...aka Grammie Ginger and Papa Bill. These are two of the nicest people in the world. They are so kind to us ! The kids love them dearly. They are actually my sister in laws, in laws... if that makes sense. They have always welcomed us into their family and home with open arms. They always have an open door policy to our family to come stay with them or come swim in their pool. The kids love the pool. There is a great slide they all love to use. On this visit to their house Grrandpa Don... the kids true GREAT GRANDFATHER came over to visit as well. The kids love visiting with him. Not too many kids have a greatgrandfather. He is so sweet and kind and still has his witty personality...we always enjoy spending as much time as we can with him.

Last day of school

Today was the last day of school. Davin graduated from Kindergarten. We loved Mrs. Castillo. She was an awesome teacher ! Davin absolutley loved her. Today they performed the play of the three little pigs. It was adorable. They had a graduation ceremony. When Mrs. Castillo, called Davin's name she said she would miss seeing his beautiful green eye evryday.

End of school

Today was a busy and sad day. The kids are out of school ! We picked Joshua up on our way home from school. Then we invited a few friends over to have water fights and popsicles to celebrated school was out. Gretchen brought Shawn, and Michelle brough Melina and Emma. The sad part of the day was when Joshua's mommy came to pick him up. Victoria is one of my dearest friends. Today they were moving... to Maryland. She came in and I know it was hard for the both of us, so we tried not to get emotional. We said our goodbyes and then they packed themselves in the car and Victoria and I said "See you soon". It was a quick, but painful goodbye. I came back in the house and cried. I know Gretchen felt my pain, she understood. I was encouraged by Michelle and Gretchen that I would see her again. I am thankful that I had my friends there to give me a hug.

Playdate with Victoria and the boys

We love having playdates with Victoria, Joshua, Luke and Jack ! Victoria and I found a perfect park where the kids could play, swing, ride bikes and scooters and the most important thing a place to search for bugs. What I love about it the most is just being with Victoria. We hang out at the park for hours. The only reason why we leave is that she needs to get home to start dinner for her husband John. We pack food for the kids, let them play and have great girl time with eachother.
