Fun Weekend

This weekend was a lot of fun.  Saturday we visited my Grandpa and went out to lunch.  We then walked around the mall for a little while.  Sunday we went out to get some flowers to plant and we happened to find a vintage swap meet going on.  We decided to walk around and see what there was, and we happened to find a cute rocking chair for Emmett and a bell for bunco.  I plan to redo the chair soon.

This morning I was watching Emmett roll around in his play area when I noticed he found his pacifier and was sucking on it.  Then he takes it out of his mouth and puts it back in then he coughs the pacifier goes flying out of his mouth and he reaches over grabs it and puts it back in his mouth.  I found watching him do all of this to be very funny, because in a lot of ways he is self sufficient.  I am always worried when I put him to sleep that he doesn't have too many cuddly things in his bed and that he has the pacifier right next to him, when turns out he can easily find the pacifier and move around!  I guess this means he is getting older and more capable of doing stuff for himself...amazing!

Date Night

On Friday we had a date night.  It was really nice to have a night out.  We went to Don Jose's and had margaritas and chips.  I love their tri tip salad!  The funny thing is we went to dinner and had drinks and the whole dinner only took about an hour hahhahha!

Emmett 7 Months

Hello! I am 7 months old!
What a happy baby.  Really from 5 months on having a baby has gotten so much more enjoyable!  Not that I didn't love the new born stage, but I am happy that is over and now I have a happy little guy that responds to playing and smiling.  I must say Emmett definitely has his own personality.  He is easily scared ahhahaha, I have to make noise as I come into his room when he is up from a nap if not he jumps when he sees me.  He is eating 3 meals a day plus milk.  He loves cereal in the morning and fruit and veggies in the afternoon.  We go on lots of walks and he still takes 3 naps a day or 2 really long naps.  I leave the schedule up to him the only thing we keep the same every day is he wakes up at 6am and goes to sleep at 8pm.

He is almost crawling!  He will lay on his tummy and push his arms up straight supporting his upper body.  He loves his jumper and his walker.

 This pose cracked me up! He held that pose for a while hahhaha.

Our house has turned into a huge play area, but I don't care because I know it will only be a short time before everything changes again and he is walking and playing with larger toys.

Dancing with Emmett

This week has been all about trying to stay cool.  It was in the 100's again yesterday and probably again today.  The air runs all day long and I know our bill will be over $100 dollars but I don't care because staying cool is worth every penny.  Its hard to do anything in this heat, but later this week we have a bunco party and painting and vino and I am really looking forward to getting out and doing something.

It is sooo hot outside!  Yesterday it was in the 100's!  When outside it feels like you are standing in an oven.  So we have been spending a lot of time inside in the cool air conditioning.  Its hard to even find things to do where you stay cool.  I would say go shopping in a mall, but I have no extra money to spent soo... we are inside.

I have been able to do some art for my friend and her soon to be born daughter, and I am also almost finished with the NHRA drawings.  I only have one drawing left, but its of 3 people.  I hope I can get motivated enough to finish it this week.

 These were both copies of paintings my friend asked for, not my original designs.

The messy art table.

The Ocean

 Last weekend was soo hot at the beach that it turned out to be a great opportunity to have Emmett put his feet in the water for the first time!  In his defense, the water was really cold, especially since he has never really felt cold water before.  So we walked down and as the water rolled in I stuck his feet in.  He let out a blood curdling scream the first 2 times I put his feet in, but by the 3rd time he didn't seem to mind.  He was probably thinking, I don't like this but obviously mom is going to keep doing this lol. 
 Here I am thinking we are taking a nice family photo hahhaha

We had the most beautiful sunset that night!  This is the real photo no changes have been made at all.
Thank you to my Dad for all of these excellent photos!

Oceanside Vacation

This last weekend we had a small vacation to Oceanside.  We were invited to our good friend's baby shower.  She is due the beginning of December, and she is still so tiny you wouldn't even think she is pregnant.  We decided to make this a weekend away since its so pretty there and the weather is still really nice.  The last time we had a weekend in Oceanside it was right after we got married.

We drove over Saturday morning and had lunch at the Ruby's on the pier.  Grant had already been surfing that morning, so he met us there when he was done.  We were actually able to get a few photos of him in action since he was surfing in a location that was easy for us to get to.  After lunch and surfing we went back to the hotel and went swimming.  Sunday we woke up early and went for a walk along the harbor and around 1pm we went to the baby shower.  It was so nice to be by the beach relaxing, the only draw back was there was no breeze what so ever and it felt like it was 100 degrees outside with 100% humidity.  You would just drip with sweat!  Besides the heat it was really nice!

 Hanging at the hotel.
 Modeling LOL

We all went swimming.  Emmett loves the water.
 The hottest morning walk by the beach I have ever had .

My mom and Mary (best friends from high school)
 Brittany (the mama to be) holding Emmett.  When we fist got there I left Grant with Emmett at the party so I could get more stuff out of the car and I guess he realized I was gone and started screaming!

Such a fun weekend!  Can you see the sweat? hahahhha.

Good Bye NZ Friends!

On Wednesday night we met up with all my cousins and family and Mel, Craig and Ruby for dinner.  They were off back to NZ the next day and we all wanted to say one last goodbye until they visit again, hopefully soon.  We all met for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe at Downtown Disney.  This is the best place to eat when you have kids because its soo loud in there that even though your kid is screaming at the top of their lungs no one gets annoyed.  Also when you go anywhere to eat around Disney you can just expect screaming.  It was great to see everyone and hang out.  Of course Emmett was sleeping when we got in the restaurant and suddenly woke up as soon as we sat down.  I am not sure why but he just decided to scream the whole night!  It was ridiculous, as soon as anyone looked at him or touched him he screamed so I had to hold him through the whole dinner.  Oh well, he likes to make it difficult for us hahhaha.  All the kids had fun dancing around to the band after dinner until they all got a little too tired.  Poor Hazel was soo tired she had to be carried out of there and Emmett was rolled out screaming until we got in the car lol.

 The kids dancing around.

 The guys didn't want pictures of them.
