The Grove

So our wonderful friends Erin and Kevin came for a visit from Boston. We met them at The Grove for lunch, a trolley ride and some shopping. It was so great to see them and Jack and Zoe had a great time! I wish we got to see them more often! We love you soooo much!

So Zoe is officially crawling........everywhere!! Jack thinks its so funny and Zoe is loving her freedom! Today I took some great pictures capturing the crawling in motion. Jack decided to join in and "race" Zoe...JACK WON!!!! I have been imagining the day my two children would play was great! They were laughing with each other and working together, it brought tears to my eyes watching them and wishing and hoping there love for each other will continue and always be strong!! LOVE YOU BOTH SOOOOO MUCH!

Father's Day Weekend

So Friday we headed down to Orange County to Grammy and Grampy's house for the weekend. My brother flew home from Portland to surprise my dad. Rob went to pick him up Saturday morning at the airport while my Mom, Dad, myself and the kids were waiting for them at the restaurant. They walked in, my dad was shocked....he screamed, then was a great moment and a great weekend. The boys played golf, then today we went to my parents swim club and barbecued dinner at the house. Jack loves his Uncle so much, it makes me sad we can't see them more but i think a trip to Portland is going to happen sooner than later...I would say everything was wonderful this weekend except Zoe...she cried the whole weekend. Her first two teeth came in and she is not a happy girl!!! I feel so bad for herbut I'm also ready to pull my hair out...i hope the other teeth aren't as bad or mommy is going to age real quickly!!!

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful father who has been so amazing to me...his unconditional love, guidance and friendship is truly appreciated!!! He is a wonderful man and a wonderful Grampy to my children. Robbie, Happy Father's day to an amazing husband and a wonderful Daddy!!! You truly are a joy to watch as a father and Jack and Zoe are so lucky to have you and I am too!!!

Shoes and Gymboree

So I have a feeling Zoe is going to have small feet just like her Mommy...she finally fits into the 0-6 month shoes and shes almost 9 months! I don't think she will be wearing to many shoes once the warm weather comes but it's always fun playing dress up!

Zoe and I have been going to music class Saturday mornings at Gymboree for the past few weeks. It's so nice spending time with her while Jack and Daddy are home having fun! She really seems to be enjoying it. She loves the instruments, bubbles and all the music! It feels like yesterday I went to my first class with Jack. Time flies so quickly!!! It's so wonderful being able to take my kids to experience different things and watch them learn and get excited.

So last night I had a surprise party for Rob's 30th. I was so nervous that he knew but when i saw his face once we yelled surprise i realized he had NO idea...he was in tears!!! It was at Sabor Cocina in Valencia, a yummy new place that was amazing. We had the whole patio, with wonderful service, great food and way too many cocktails! There were 40 people and it was so great that so many people came some so far to help celebrate! Rob was so happy and was in shock the entire night! 30 is a big birthday especially because we met when he was only 19 so I figured he deserved a big party!!! I'm soooo happy, it was a definite success!!!
