Last Weekend With Jo

We have had a busy weekend.  On Saturday we went to Corona Del Mar and played on the beach for a few hours.  On Sunday we went to the Irvine zoo and walked around.  We have been lucky because the weather has been awesome.  Its been nice and warm, but not too hot.  It feels like a cool summer day.  Today we are sending Jo back to New Zealand where she is having a vacation before going back home to Australia.

 This was before Emmett decided to walk/run in the water and fall face down in the waves.  Luckily Grant picked him up within seconds.
 Thank you to Gail for the super cute shirt Emmett is wearing.

Here we are at the zoo checking out all the wild animals.  Emmett was really tired and unhappy, but we made it through LOL

As you can see Emmett was not going to be set down hahaha.  He would only be held.

Emmett's 2nd Birthday

On Sunday we celebrated Emmett's 2nd birthday with a family party.  All my cousins came and their kids and the grandparents were all there.  Turned out to be a big crowd.  We did a Mickey Mouse theme, we had sandwiches and cake, and of course some games.

We started the morning with special birthday pancakes.

It was a really fun day.


On the Saturday before Emmett's 2nd birthday we ended up in the emergency room for 2 hours.  I was busy all morning getting everything ready for Emmett's birthday, and Grant and Jo were going to go to the beach for lunch.  I was down stairs pouring the cake batter into the cupcakes when I hear a loud bang and a scream.  Grant yelled out Shannon Emmett fell and its really bad!  I was terrified! What happened? I started to run up stairs and Grant was bringing him down.  Apparently Emmett was running at full speed and tripped falling head first into the corner of our dresser.  There was a huge purple knot forming on his forehead and a cut down the middle of it.  Grant just kept saying its really bad.  I said hurry lets go to the emergency hospital.  So I frantically ran around the house, turning off the oven and locking the doors.

We jumped in the car and drove off.  The whole time in the back seat I was telling Emmett, its going to be ok and he was telling me the same thing, its going to be ok mama.  I was so scared that he could have done damage to his skull or brain.  Once we were in the hospital it already started to look better the swelling had gone down and it stopped bleeding.  The Dr. told us that its good we came in and he checked him out and said everything looks ok.  I have never been so scared.  Emmett's biggest fear in the hospital were the plastic bracelets they made him wear with his info on them and then when the dr. wanted to simply look at him ( not touch him).  I have never heard a whistle scream quite like I did that day.

 This was us that morning watching tv and relaxing.  Turns out that is what we looked like in the hospital too.  We left with both of us still in our PJs.

Here we are after we got home.

Feels Like Summer

Grant's mom Jo arrived on Saturday.  On Sunday we all went to the park.  It is winter but the weather feels like the middle of summer.  This is not a good thing in my opinion.  We already have a summer that lasts half the year and now winter is turning into summer.  When do we get a break from the heat?
Anyways it was fun at the park (even though I was sitting in the only sliver of shade I could find).  Emmett loves the swings.  He would have just sat in the swing the whole time if we let him.  Of course we forced him to do other fun stuff too.

Parties and Fishing

On Sunday we went to a friends super bowl party.  It was lots of fun and Emmett got to ride around in a kids car.  On Monday we went fishing at a local lake.  My dad was able to show Emmett how to fish.  He was pretty interested in the reeling in of the line.  The only problem was how hot it was that day!  I thought I would faint from heat.  I guess my body was use to it being so cold and then out of no where it was about 90 degrees!

Got a Real haircut.  The first in about 3 months!
