Isaac completed his first year of football this morning and I sent out a text to my family to let them know about the game. We had a great turn out- lots of fans cheering on Isaac and his team. It is safe to say he was really excited about it. He played well and always has fun.

Painting Pumpkins

We had Sullivan over this week one day. I picked up a few painting kids from Target a couple weeks ago and figured it would be a great day to use them. We headed to find some pumpkins and then came home to do our craft. The kids had so much fun.

At the beginning of our trip to CA we met some friends in Pasadena for the ASU vs UCLA football game in the Rose Bowl Stadium. We had so much fun during our quick weekend. We took a train up to Pasadena from San Diego with Josh and Christin. It was such a peaceful ride with great views of the coast (for most of the ride). We went out for dinner and drinks when we arrived. 

Saturday we woke up and headed out to meet more friends for lunch and then we went down to the Rose Bowl to tailgate before the game. The game was really exciting and ASU won! 

Sunday we went our own ways and said goodbye to our friends and took the train back to San Diego to catch up with the kids and John and Linda. 

Thanks for the great weekend! Thanks John and Linda for coming to watch the kids!

We love CA!

Jeff and I took the kids to CA for 9 wonderful days. The first weekend Jeff and I went to a football game with friends so John and Linda came from AZ to watch the kids... Thank you so much! When we returned from our trip we hit the ground running...

We spent and entire day at the zoo- which was amazing. It was a rainy day and cool so they said the animals are more active. We saw polar bears, koala bears, monkeys, elephants, cheetahs and so much more. We all loved our time together. We didn't bring a stroller and the kids walked most of the day- which was so nice. 

We spent another day at Lego Land. We didn't have much for expectations as neither of us have ever been. My expectations were exceeded by far. Our kids were the perfect age- able to go on all the rides and do all the activities. At first Anna was totally freaked out to go on the roller coasters but once she tried one once she was hooked and loved them all. It was fun. They had the set from The Lego Movie and Emmett was there so we got to meet him. The Lego Friends also had an area where they put on a concert and Anna got to play legos with the characters and she was a little star struck but had so much fun. I highly recommend Lego Land.

The other days we spent on Coronado. We rented and rode bikes 2 days, played in the ocean- boogie boarding was a major hit (for all 3- Jeff included), swam in the pool, early morning seashell hunts, just hanging out. We truly have the best time together. Every year it gets a little more fun as the kids get older. 

We can't wait to go back!

Thanks mom and dad for letting us crash at your place for the week!
