Visiting with Nana

Nana's visit flew by.  On Saturday we went to Balboa and had lunch and walked around.  On Sunday we had Nana and Col to our house for swimming and playing.  On Monday, Memorial Day, we had a BBQ at Jo's place.  It turned out to be a little cool so we didn't do much swimming.  They left this morning super early so we said goodbye yesterday.

We were lucky to have 4 days with quality time for Nana and the kids.  Emmett was so excited to see Nana and very sad to say goodbye.

Nana Is Here

Yesterday we got to visit with Nana and Col.  They are in town for a few days and staying near the beach.  Emmett was so excited he didn't sleep the whole day! We had a great time catching up and swimming and barbecuing.  Today we are heading out for more adventures.

 Emmett was in heaven!  He got Lego and a remote control truck!
 Nana had this special blanket made for Calvin and we Love it!

Last weekend it was so hot that we were able to go swimming.  I think its the beginning of the heat, but who knows we will probably still get some cool days.
This was the first time Calvin was able to swim in the big pool.  Just as I guessed he loved it.  He has always loved the bath so really this was like a huge bath for him.  Being in the sun for just a short time has made me realize he will tan easily.  Emmett is the type of kid you have to really watch in the sun cause he is so white, but I can tell Calvin is going to be able to get tan.  Regardless we will always use sun block and have them covered up.

We spent quite a bit of time splashing around and having fun.

Happy Mother's Day

We had a great Mother's Day today!  We were up at 545am so we decided to head to breakfast early.  We went to Coco's right when they opened.  I think we were there at 7am and guess what there were other people in there too!  We had a delicious breakfast and we were done and home be 830am haha.  
The good thing about eating super early is your kids can make a lot of noise and no one cares because there is no one in the restaurant.

Emmett, Calvin and Dada all made me a really cute card and we spent the rest of the day playing at home.  I did go grocery shopping while Grant watched the kids. Its so much easier to shop without kids!  I just made sure I got a special treat for Emmett because he really wanted to go with me.

Beach Day

Yesterday we went to Newport Beach and had lunch and walked around.  We took the ferry over to Balboa Island and walked around and had an ice cream.  A huge highlight for Emmett was the construction that was being done on one of the streets.  They were pouring concrete so he was super excited to see that.  After all the walking we headed to the light house park so Emmett could run wild and have more fun.

 After breaking this stroller we bought a replacement at full price.  That is how much we like it!  A few days ago I was looking on the App Offer Up and I saw someone was selling a second hand one for $20.  so I jumped on it and now each boy has their own!  I can't believe I have been buying brand new stuff when its so easy to find great kid stuff used.

Grant has been doing some extra projects on the weekends, here he is showing me what he has to wear for today's grinding project.  I guess its going to be messy!

Pool Party!

We had a pool party, with the kiddie pool yesterday.  The boys loved splashing around and playing with the water toys.  Pretty soon the big pool will be warm enough for us to swim in.

We are so white I am sure they see us from outer space hahaha.  We need to wear lots of sunblock this summer!

Well another month has flown by!  Calvin is now 7 months.  He does all of the stuff a typical 7 month old does.

  • He laughs all the time 
  • He has 2 bottom teeth and working on the top teeth
  • We have put up the gate in our house since he can get Emmett's tiny toys
  • He sleeps through the night and wakes around 645am very hungry
  • He loves taking baths and splashing around
  • He can sit on his own really well now
