San Diego

We left Abby with Daddy and took off to San Diego to visit the beach for the first time. It was kind of a long car ride. Not much to look at on the way there. But we took lots of potty breaks to run around and get the wiggles out.

We stopped at Chuck E Cheese for dinner. Another first for the kids....and probably a last the food was HORRIBLE! But they had a blast running around playing games. I hardly saw Ryan the whole time. It felt good to be out of the car for a while before we finished the trip.

The next day we headed out to the beach. We picnicked on the grass before heading down to the sand. The kids had a blast feeding the seagulls and chasing them around the playground.

We even buried Ryan in the sand for a bit. He held still pretty good and had a blast breaking out of it.
The next day we decided to forgo the sand and went swimming at the pool and then headed for home in the afternoon. We were missing Daddy and Abby and wanted to spend the weekend with them.
Our last stop on the way home was the Barstow McDonalds that is a train car. It was kindof late and the kids were getting drowsy but they still love it. We had a great time and cant wait to take Daddy and Abby back next time!

The lost weekend

Becca Tiff and I headed to Las Vegas for a little R&R last weekend. I dont think we got much rest or relaxation but man we sure had fun. I guess I was having too much fun to take pictures cause these two are just about the only ones I took. And what a good sport Jeff was for taking all the kids for a few days so I could get away. You are the best babe!!

The EQ Pool Party

Just when you think the swimming is we go again! Lots of good food and swimming. The girls swam and jumped off the rocks so much that they tore up the bottoms of their feet.
Abby had a blast but was so wiggly I couldnt hold her in the pool for very long so we spent the second half on the other side of the fence with Jackson. She wasnt very happy about it.

Cassie was a dare devil and had no fear when she started jumping off the rocks. It was a fun time had by all for sure and a great way to end the summer.


I took the kids to go see Cats at Tuachan and they were so excited to dress up for it. Ryan found his twinner cat.

They really enjoyed the whole experience, I really enjoyed the night as well.

Independance Day

We had a few scraped knees (mine) some watermelon and a good old fashioned BBQ. It was an eventful day. I have not become more graceful in my old age, if anything just more clumsy. I took a step off what I thought was a flat curb only to realize as I went flying through the air that it was one of those two foot deep gutters! My body was battered and bruisd but we pressed onward to the park. The park lasted us all of about an hour before we were all boiling and starving, so we headed off to Taco Time for lunch. Nothing like some good oldfashioned American tacos for the 4th of July eh?

I this picture you can see the flat street that drop off into a cliff right where I took a major stumble. Atleast I had an exscuse to take it easy the rest of the day.

Tarzan, part two

I was lucky enough to get a free ticket to go see Tarzan so Ryan and I went with some friends. He had so much fun and kept asking me where the monkeys were. I think he liked all the attention he got from his loin cloth as well. He made it almost all the way through before falling asleep. Check out that cut big ol belly.
He was so asleep I transferred him to the momma monkey for a picture and he didnt even stir until the flash went off. Then he woke up a bit onfused to be in the arms of a monkey!

I wanted him to just be in the picture but he was a bit scared by that time so we all posed together. It was a fun date night for me and my boy, he did so well I really enjoyed being with just him and me for one special night.
