Hangin' up the backpacks and reachin' for the swimsuits...

"I can't believe it!" We have been saying this all week in our household. We cannot believe another school year is behind us (as of today) and another summer upon us! Yeah! Here we come...beach, after dinner walks, trips to grandma's, lazy mornings, bike rides to the park, later bedtimes...we are so glad it's back! We heart summer! And, before you know it, we will be on the search for the best lunchbox, buying new uniform polos and trying to get to bed at a decent time, so we are ready for those early morning role calls once again. But, let's not ruin the moment...Summer here we come!

Jameson is 8!

It's birthday season around these parts! Jameson turned 8 this past Saturday, and Meran & Sutton's birthdays follow in 2 weeks.
Jameson celebrated with 12 friends in a sweaty, boyish way... Laser tag! He wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme, so we had pizza & turtle cupcakes. Even Jason & Meran played laser tag! Sutton was dying to try it, but you have to be 7, so he settled for trying the gear and gun on;).
On his actual birthday we just did the normal Saturday stuff... Hang around together, karate lessons, and go out to dinner, but accompanied by a lot of birthday sugar, of course!:)
Oh and he got to try out his new Electric Razor Trikke e2!

Mother's Day

Most of my adult life we have lived in Visalia so we always spent Mother's Day with my wonderful Mother-in-law (seriously the best a girl could ask for)! However, I didn't always get to spend them with my own mom. Now that we are closer, I took the opportunity to host it this year. My parents came for lunch and we enjoyed a relaxing day in the backyard, accompanied by the fabulous breeze Point Loma brings each afternoon!

Family Picts

Our old ( but young ) friends, Becca & Jared Tilley, were in San Diego last weekend. Becca has taken some of my favorite pictures of my kids. She also did a photo shoot of our family in 2011, before we left Visalia, as a going away gift. That was very special, as it was right before I started treatment and lost my hair.
These pictures mark a new chapter too... We are very settled in our new home. We have grown both physically and spiritually. We are content where He has us, but not complacent.
Thank you Becca, you are such a gifted photographer and special friend!(we love you too Jared;)

We visited Legoland last weekend with special friends and family. We have been looking forward to this weekend for many months, and it passed way too fast! Last time we visited Legoland, Sutton wasn't tall enough to ride many of the rides... This time it was Bellen's turn to wait as the "big kids" rode. But, she found her own entertainment, swinging on any bar or railing that was in her reach. And yes, Jason & Brandon were very proud of the crazy, huge, fluorescent bears they won on their first try!:)
