Enjoying the new area!!

Bryan has been home this week and of course Kevin and Adam have found this to be very fun, because these days Dad is just more fun than Mom. But on Tuesday it was Nana that stole the most fun award. Kevin and Adam were picked up in the morning by their Nana and went to Pretend City in Irvine. The boys had a blast. They even got to see Uncle Geoffrey and Jessica. They were there for 3 hours and cried to stay longer. They got to dress up as pretty much any profession, play in dirt and water, drive cars, play in the sand go grocery shopping and put on a show and also be part of a parade of costumes. I can't wait to take them again when I am back to my old self again. It seems like it would be such a fun thing, and maybe I can even get some of their friends to come with us next time.

Thanks to Nana we have a couple of pics to share!!

Theeeennnn, in case that was not enough fun for the week the boys went to Knotts Berry Farm with some friends of ours and got their season passes. They had a blast even though it drizzled a little bit on them they still had tons of fun. I was able to stay home with Isaac and hang out with my good friend Kirsten and her baby boy while her hubby and daughter were out with my boys. It was fun fun to see a friend and I even got a very little bit of sewing done but hey something is better than nothing and I even made a little more progress on the quilts.

babies, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and blessings

so this week Grandpa was here which was really fun because he hadn't been out in over 2 years so it was fun to show him our new place and such and life at our house. We had a super eventful week we went to the beach for a 3rd and 4th time with Grandpa while visiting Miss Sis and Uncle Josh. We had Isaac's baby blessing on Sunday, then in a blink of an eye the week was over and they my parents were taken to the airport this morning which has made us all a little sad. We so enjoyed having them (they should move out here, hint hint, mom)

Here is Adam carrying a big stick at Mission Beach in San Diego

Baby Blessings
Sunday we did Isaac's baby blessing. afterwards we had lunch at our place for friends and family that came up and down and out to be there.
Who was there: Grandma and Grandpa, Nana, Christopher, the Bartys and the Petersons. We didn't take a ton of pics sadly but we got a few.

and the man of the hour, Isaac, wearing his little adorable outfit for his blessing. We are so excited to have this sweet spirit with us. It feels like he should have always been here and we are so blessed to have all of our boys that fill our home with sweet noises whether laughing, crying, screaming, banging, running, or just sweet I love yous, we love them all.

Valentine's Day Weekend!!

Yes, we totally went to the beach and got some serious sun on Valentine's Day (and the next day too) It was so fun and I was able to take my new camera and get lots of great shots

my most awesome Valentine's gift, my mommy cam. (We also got a Japanese couples massage which felt so wonderful after the bodily trauma I have been through this month)

Kevin and Adam are such fun brother's. They played and played together all afternoon at the beach it was so cute!!

and we stayed until the sun went down, then we did it all again the next day on Monday, and we found another beach with fire pits, so we will have to utilize that this summer. I will be there at least once a week maybe twice this summer, since last summer I only went once all summer it was the saddest thing that ever happened.

A Super Bowl Party!!

Well it wouldn't really be February without a super bowl party and my Mom wouldn't have let the event pass without getting its due notice so we through a little shindig at our place. We had my sister and her husband, Josh and our good friends, the Cookes join us for the festivities. My mom was going for the Colts (I should say Peyton Manning) and my sister, josh and Bryan sided with the Saints. I did not pick a team this year. Here are the pics!!

All the best buddies: above...adam, kevin, kien, caleb

Long Awaited!!

Our Sweet Isaac Aaron was born February 2, 2010. He was 8 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long. His brothers are so excited to have him home and we have all adjusted pretty well. He is such a sweet little thing and super calm except when he is hungry or getting his diaper changed :D . Here are some pics!!
