Our Summer So Far

As it might have been noticed I got really behind on my blogging, but I recently got the first year of my blog printed in a hardcover book and am now re-inspired to keep up with it. But before I can really do much I have a little catching up to do. So this post is a little bit of everything we have been doing for the last 4 months. So Here goes with the first being the oldest until the end which will be more recent.

Laguna Beach is one of our favorite spots because we can almost always get Grandpa to join us and that makes it just a little bit more fun!!

Isaac loves capris suns I mean LOVES he is hilarious with it so it is extra special when we get them for beach trips :D

My Little Helper, Adam folded that whole pile of towels himself he is such a big helper

When I head to beach, this is how I roll

Isaac's first Father-Son camping trip was a little tough on daddy as he was awake most of the night, but that didn't stop him from having tons of fun.  He loved rolling down the hill!!

PreSchool Graduation:
Adam had a tough time with Kevin's graduation, I think he thought it was a little too much about Kevin and little too little about him.  But he was very uncooperative and made sure he got his mad face in any picture he could.  But we love that face too!!

Kevin and his preschool teacher Mrs. V.  She loved Kevin and said he was her life saver in the class because he was such a good listener and example to the other kids.  He was very popular with the kids apparently and they followed him often.  We are so proud of our little big boy!!

Movie Night at Newport Dunes Campground!!  We just found out about this and decided we ought to go.  They show kids movies every Friday and Saturday night all summer long on the sand.  It costs 10 dollars per car for parking and that's it.  The boys had a blast and got to watch Lilo Stitch!!

For a cheap outing we decided to take the little Ferry across the Harbor from Balboa Island to the peninsula.  It costs next to nothing to take the Ferry and the parking was free and Grandpa came along on our little adventure we went to the beach playground and had a picnic lunch. It was a perfect way to spend 5 bucks and a morning.

The Doctor's office can be such a terrible adventure but today we decided to take pics of how not terrible it was as the boys were all being such fun kiddos and great brothers.

 Hats! Hats! Hats!  Isaac loves hats, you might say he is a little obsessed he will put on any hat and this hat was found at Cooke Camp and he loved it, I don't have a picture of the meltdown that ensued when it was time to put it away but he was so into this hat that was seriously bigger than him, lol...

In May we increased our household size by two and a puppy when my sister and brother-in-law and their little puppy Oliver moved in.  Uncle Josh and the boys had so much fun for days putting together different train tracks with their geo-trax set and playing with them.

I sewed something.  along with not blogging I have not been sewing either, but I finally broke the pattern and I made this travel pillow, and now Kevin actually does sleep in the car when I say to go to sleep.  He is faking in this picture which makes me laugh a little bit.

 For father's Day for Papa we took some pics with Daddy and Papa's Motorcycle and the boys they turned out soooo fun!!

beach days, are fun and one day we headed to the beach only to find it was cold like downright chilly so on the way in we stopped at Albertsons and got some firewood and marshmallows and now our beach day was not ruined but even better...

The boy's started a soccer class, it is a pre-requisite for joining the Anaheim Soccer League which we will be doing in September.  They are having so much fun learning the basics and running out any extra energy they might have had!!

 We recently had a birthday party for Aunt Lindsey at Lake Mission Viejo.  The boys all went swimming and then Uncle Geoffrey got them all hooked up with some fishing  gear and they ended the day trying to catch some fish, they were unsuccessful this time but are sure next time will be different.  : D

wow! how fun. I love the pillow you made for Kevin, I think I will try and make one for Kate, she has the hardest time sleeping in the car. Is it just stuffed with batting?

Tanya said...

Yes it is just batting I tried to make it like the travel pillow in The one step ahead magazine or online and used the picture to "try" to copy it. Kevin really does love it and I'm thinking I need one for long trips for me too, lol
