The Fam


We don't end up with too many pictures of the whole family together, but when we do, I get excited. This was in Laguna Beach on Sunday, we were headed to dinner.  Love my peeps.

What's Up?

As I suspected, life has been really busy this last month.  Harper is now a month old and Sawyer is a big two year old!! My parents and little brother came to visit from Virginia and my Grams is in town visiting from Indiana.  Marc's parents are also here from Idaho and Marc's sister is here from New Mexico.  I say all family members should just move to Southern California to make things simpler, what do you say?

Anyways...just in the last week we have...

1.) Gone to Wild Rivers.  I consider this a brave moment on my part...I was a little nervous with an almost two year old and a 3 1/2 week old (and Marc was at work) but decided to give it a shot because my sister and her hubs would be there (with their 2 month old!) and my parents and brother (who is 14 and actually a total help).  It ended up being a really fun day and I forgot how fun water slides are (although the bandaids in the water gross me out, and seriously, can't they heat their H2O up a little bit more? brrr!)...pictures to come...

2.) Tackled a ridiculously huge pile of laundry.  Not only did I wash & dry all of it...but I even put it away.  I am giving myself a high-five right now....sorry, no pictures of this, don't be too sad...

3.) Took a trip to Los Angeles to go to the Flower Market...and I am even the one that drove! (I don't typically like driving unless it is in a 30 mile radius of my home...I know, I am a dork).  Super fun day and totally worth the drive.  Not only was it fun seeing all the flowers but I loved spending the day with Momma and Bryt (and Harper and Mazie and Bryce...lets not forget)...pictures to come...

4.) Had breakfast at The Beachcomber in Crystal Cove.  If you have never been there I highly recommend their breakfast, yum!...perhaps some pictures to come...not sure yet...

4.) Celebrated Sawyer's big #2 birthday with a small family party.  Although small, it still took some brain power for me to get myself organized and ready for this little event...pictures to come...

5.) Celebrated Harper's homecoming with a party/shower thrown by my mom and sister...complete with catering from Pinkberry :) Harper may have slept during the entire thing, but I am pretty sure she had a good time, and I know that I did.  I loved seeing my friends (something I haven't done much of since having two little kidlets, I am working on it though) and I loved having family here too!...pictures to come....

So clearly I have some pictures that need to be uploaded and I eventually plan on posting them, but for now I leave you with my two little munchkins...


 Sawyer is all about giving her baby sister Har-poo (that is how Sawyer says it) kisses :)

Awkward Family Photo and a Happy Father's Day

Today we celebrated Marc's second Father's Day...we hung out with my sister and her family and played in the pool and in the sun.  If you ask me, it was a pretty great day! I think Marc thought it was fun too :)  Before we left the pool I asked my sister to take a picture of our family...I am not sure but I think this might be one of the most awkward pictures of the four of us...


Marc was holding Sawyer's head hoping she would look at the camera and Harper's hat is covering her face and she was totally crying.

And on a more serious note...



I love my husband and I don't think I could have picked a better father for my kids.  He is an awesome daddy and he does everything he can to take care of our little family - we love him sooooo much!!! He works crazy hours but still somehow finds the energy to play with Sawyer and swim with her and chase her at the park.  As soon as Harps gets a little bigger I am sure she will be joining them on their play dates.

Not only are my kids lucky to have a great dad, but I am lucky to have an awesome dad too!  Bubba, I love you! Thank you for everything you have ever done for us kids, and I love all of the memories we share...my kids are lucky to have you as their grandpa :)  



And Happy Father's Day to my father-in-law, he is also a wonderful grandpa and a great father-in-law.  I know not everyone is lucky enough to have in-laws that they really love, but I totally scored.

All in all I have an amazing family and for that I am forever grateful.

Cousins & Sisters


My girls are so lucky to have a cousin living close by, and I am lucky to have my sister close by.  I didn't grow up living close to family, but it is such a blessing to have relatives around to play with.  Nothing is better than family :) Sawyer will be 2 in a couple of weeks and Mazie is about 7 weeks old and Harper is 2 weeks old.  I can only imagine what kind of mischief these three will get into together in the future.

p.s This picture makes me smile...someday it will be pretty funny to look back at

So Much Family Time

I thought that once I had a new baby I would be taking pictures and blogging like crazy, but instead, I have just been soaking up and loving all of the family time instead.  Marc has two weeks off of work so we have been getting in a lot of play time.  Is 26 too early to retire? I wish Marc was home with me every single day! One of the things we have been doing is spending a lot of time at the pool.  Here are some pictures from last weekend.  Sawyer kills me in her Roxy hat, and Harper is so cute just being cozy in the shade.  I love my little family!
