A special day

Just a few family pictures of those that joined us to celebrate Ethan's baptism on Saturday. It was such a special day and we shared a lot of nice memories with our family and friends that were there. Thank you for all the cards and phone calls - it ment so much to him.


LA County Fair

We finally made it to the fair! We have been talking about going for the last 3 years or so and haven't been able to find time to go. This week we took the boys out of school a few hours early and away we went to find the funnel cake and BBQ! Ethan volunteered at a demonstration and then found out that he would be holding a snake! He was so brave. But the look on his face was so funny.
The boys tried these trampolines with a harness.You can do a back flip if you are brave. Of cource the kids just jumped up and down the whole time and Mike & I talked about how our parents never would have paid for us to go on something like this because it is a "waste of money"!

The good old slide on the sratchy sack. This is always a favorite ride.

This is the indoor Winter wonderland. The boys must have gone sledding for a good half hour & the best part is you climb up stairs to get to the top of the hill. How easy is that!!!

Riding the tractor in the big red barn, We liked seeing all the animals. Julia called everything a puppy!

Ice cream! We know the way to this little girls heart! It was a really fun day for everyone. The kids won some goldfish (yea!) and Mike and I were really glad that we had a good family day together.

Pine Wood Derby

This has been a really busy week for us. Mike and Ethan finished his car just in time for the Pine Wood Derby on Thursday night. It is the first one Ethan has made and he was so happy to participate. His car did well, finishing in the top half. Mike is the Cubmaster and he put a lot of work into making it a fun and successful event for all the boys.


Bags & Braids

So here it is! This is the custom made diaper bag that I ordered from Eighty Daisies. I love it! They have tons of fabrics to choose from and then they made you a one of a kind bag that is sewn by a mom and the quality is amazing. If you like unique things check out their site.
Mike is going to love carrying this with all the beads and pom-poms don't you think!?

This was my first attempt at a french braid on Julia. Not bad considering she doesn't sit still!


Daddy's Station

Mike is working over the holiday weekend and so we went for a little visit. The kids love to "drive" the engine and pretend to go on a call. We always have fun going to see Dad and it helps the days go by faster for all of us.
