One Weekend of Many....

This summer we spent a lot of weekends with my brothers family in San Diego. They have a beautiful swimming pool and the boys are little water babies and loved swimming with their cousins. William loves getting attention from his aunt Hailey.

This visit we decided to meet up with the Burnett's Downtown for the day. We started the day off at the San Diego Zoo. The boys favorite was being able to crawl around the animals statues, my favorite was seeing how excited they got.

We then went to Old Town for some lunch and of course went to the little candy shop. The Mormon Ballalion has a new museum so we wanted to check that out as well. We were very impressed with how well of a job they did. The story/show was great and there were a lot of things for the kids to do.

We topped the day off in the Gas Light District walking around and tasting some of the best Ghirardelli Chocolate ever.

Another great day in Southern California!!

Hello Goodbye

I love surprise visits so when we got a call from some of our favorite cousins that they were stopping by we could not have been more excited. Doug's cousin Curtis and his wife Tamara (yes, her name is Tamara Hall how cool is that) stopped by on their way to San Diego. The boys could not have been be happier.

Also, we had a BBQ to say goodbye to the Larson and wished them the best of luck in NYC (I am secretly jealous that they will be living in NYC).

I forgot to mention

I forgot to mention that on Doug's birthday we went to the Dodgers Game and thanks to Papa Hall, this is what came up on the screen.

I wanted to prove that we are still cool and hip so we rode Doug's motorcycle to the game and I have to admit that I was scared the whole time but it was a GREAT night!!

Summer Birthdays

Doug and I both share June Birthdays so I think that June is the most important month of the year!! This year with so much going on in June we decided to keep things simple and to just go away for a night. Doug's mom Katie was nice enough to watch the kids for the night so we went to Long Beach and got a hotel. It was very relaxing and I had a great time laying out by the pool. They have remodeled Long Beach and it was beautiful. My favorite was the light house and walking along the water. Our friends, Melissa and Adam came and met us for dinner Greek style. I am always a sucker for some good humas and we know we picked the right place for the men because there was a lot of meat. We did not want the night to end so we went to see the movie "The A Team" which I was surprised how good it was.

On my actual birthday a bunch of my girlfriends kidnapped me at seven thirty in the morning and took me out for breakfast. Doug was suppose to "prepare" me but somehow I was at breakfast with wet hair and no makeup or bra on. Thanks ladies, it was a blast. Also, my friend Heather and Cassie took me out for High Tea. We had a wonderful afternoon.

I know that I am way behind on blogging but I hate to skip over everything that happened this summer and I really hate a long post so I will try to update sooner then ever three months:) To go along with the theme of birthdays...while I was house sitting for my boss (it was great, like staying at a resort) we had a birthday party for my friend Heather. The boys loved all of their friends over to play and we all enjoyed laying out by the pool.
