A Weekend Away

We finally had a weekend away with no kids!  This was the first time since before Emmett was born that we had a weekend away doing something fun with no kids haha.

We went to San Diego on Saturday and we stayed the night at the Horton in the Gas Lamp District.  It is always crazy down there with a lot to do.  We started out by driving down and parking the car and catching a train to old town for margaritas and Mexican food.  I forgot my hat and sunblock so I didn't want to be out in the sun for too long.

Later that night we went out to dinner to Barley Mash for dinner and drinks.


 On Sunday we had breakfast at the hotel and opted to sit outside and watch all the crazy people wander around.  I told Grant next time I am sitting inside because it put me off wanting to eat my food watching this guy crazy on drugs screaming and digging through the trash. 
 On the way home we went through La Jolla. We finally found a parking spot and decided to walk around and get a coffee.
 I want this house.  Help me, I am poor!

This town is super cute and the beaches were really nice.

July Catch Up

I am falling behind on posting.  There has been a lot going on around here...
We had the 4th of July.
We went to my parents house and enjoyed the local parade in the morning followed by swimming and a BBQ.  It was a super fun day.  Because the 4th was a week day we headed home that night and watched the fireworks from our bedroom window.

One Friday we went with Lacey and the kids to Newport and walked around and had lunch.  We did a harbor cruise and we took the ferry over to balboa island.  The best part was the kids swimming in the ocean at the end of the day. 

 Here we are playing at the house.  Calvin is learning how to play the piano.

 He can now stand on his own for a few seconds!
We have had a few annoying moments this month too.  My transmission went out in my car so we are currently getting that rebuilt and in the mean time we rented a car and borrowed my Grandpa's ride.  We are hoping it will be done tomorrow, but we could have gone without that expense!  Oh well I guess that's life.

Another month has flown by!  Calvin is now 9 months old and ready to go.  It was almost impossible to get a good photo of him.  He won't hold still for anything!

  • He can stand without holding anything and balance for about 5 seconds
  • He loves to scream hahhaha (excited, hungry, tired, anything)
  • He says mama dada num num
  • He waves hello and bye bye on his own and will try to say it 
  • He loves to clap his hands
  • Most nights we go out front and he likes to try to eat the grass
  • He wants to be a big kid
  • Wears 12-18 month clothes 
  • Weighs 19 lbs and 29.5 in long (big LOL)
  • 4 teeth coming in on the top and 2 in on the bottom

Now that it is summer and the nights are longer we usually go out and play in the front yard when Grant gets home.  Its so fun to run around and kick the ball and play t-ball.  We get to burn some energy and the kids love running with Dada.

Here we are waiting for Emmett's hip hop dance class to begin.  He is still loving the class.  I of course love watching him dance around and learn all the moves.  The freestyle is the best because the kids don't know what to do.  Emmett usually chooses to stand still and wave his arms or to jump in place.
