‘Merican Summer

While I disappeared for most of the month of June, Mere and the kids kept on enjoying the summer like we do here in America. Running around outside, enjoying the sun, jumping through sprinklers, and eating our body weight in watermelon. All four of us managed to get a trip to the San Diego Zoo…

Ballooning

While we are a bit late with the post, we did actually get out and have some fun in May. Aside from the usual family trips to the park and tasty weekend breakfasts at one of our favorite stops, one outing stands out as a bit loftier than others. After watching countless hot air balloons…

Sophia turns THREE!

It only took three years, but we finally had a proper birthday party for Sophia. Neither Phil or I grew up having big birthday parties every year so it definitely won’t be something we do for each birthday but it’s fun to do once in awhile. Sophia loved everything about her party, but what’s not…

April Visits

More than just the Easter Bunny came to visit us this month. We were fortunate enough to add grandparents to the list! The weekend prior to Easter, Sophia and Will got to scour the land for candy filled eggs at a Viper “Eggstraviganza.” They both filled their buckets with treasure but for some reason they…

Spring Madness

The madness at the house isn’t just constrained to March. It’s been quite the few months…too many late nights at work and too many naps boycotted by the kids at home. I’m told it’s April in a week but I’m not sure what happened to January, February, or March. It seems that the past few…

Rewind

In a last ditch effort to get caught up on what filled our time during the last three months of 2013, here’s a quick photo rundown…

William’s Birthday…a few months late

Phil may disagree with me on this one (it’s probably just mommy guilt) but it certainly feels like William gets cheated out of a lot of the exciting “firsts” we shared with Sophia. His baby book is barely filled and has no photos, hand-me-down clothes (which I love), a hand-me-down room and the majority of…

Summertime…

and the livin’s easy (sung to the tune of Sublime’s Summer Time). Our summer wasn’t quite so easy with the crazy busy schedule Phil was dealing with. The fact that it’s nearly November and I’m just now getting around to posting pictures from August is further evidence of that but alas, here we are! Although…

Red, White and Blue

We celebrated Independence Day in the standard American way – barbequing, beers, fireworks and a whole lot of red, white and blue! Oh, and a little bit of mud on the side.

The big 3-0!

No, I’m not in denial about turning 30, just terribly behind in updating our website. Despite Phil’s absence, I had a wonderful 30th birthday. Most notably because my parents were here to share it with me. It’s strange to think that I spent my first 24 birthdays with my parents (except for my golden birthday…
