More on San Diego trip...

We had a ton of fun on our San Diego trip, playing at the beautiful house we rented, going to a Dodgers baseball game, going to Sea World and the San Diego zoo.  We even got a fair amount of family time in!

 Awesome pool we had at our rental!  Weston is a fish.

 This picture is my favorite picture of all the San Diego trip. 

If you ever get a chance to go to the San Diego zoo, go!!! It's amazing!

Mark and Hilda's wedding - April 2011 California

I realize it has been over 2 months since our San Diego trip but a las I am blogging about it!  Our family had a ton of fun there! Lilly was a flower girl in her uncle Mark Shaffer and aunt Hilda's wedding and she did such a great job.  Her other cousins, Elizabeth Burton and Neisha DPenha were also flower girls.  Elizabeth and Lilly held tightly onto Neisha's hand (2 1/2 years old) and kept her from running down the aisle. 

pictures beautifully taken by my brother in law (Neisha's daddy), Linsay DPenha

It was 97 degrees the day of the wedding and our poor little family was having a hard time adjusting from 40 degree weather to 97 degree.  We did manage to get one family picture.

To be continued...

Each night I  have been telling myself, "I  really need to update my blog" and of course it hasn't happend.  I have been taking quite a few pictures and doing a TON of fun things with the kids but I just need to find the time to document all of them!  Well, I have ran into about 5 people recently that told me that I needed to update it!  I have started... more is on the way.  (I promise :) )

I love how my children love eachother.  They have such sweet actions towards eachother (not all of the time).

Acouple of examples today:

Ben was crying this morning when he woke up so Weston crawled into his bed, gave him his binkies and showed him stuffed animals.  They were both soon having a full on conversation.  (Yes, those are gloves by Benji's head... His little fingers get cold at night : ) ).

Another citing of sisterly love, (which I  didn't catch on film because I was driving) whenever we are driving anywhere, Lilly and Ben hold hands the whole time.  It truly is the sweetest thing to see.

This picture is of the kids at the Johnny Carino's field trip that I planned for the MOMS Club.  They had a ton of fun learning about pasta, pizza, and being able to make their own pizzas and Italian sodas!  YUMMY!

Ben is growing and changing SOOO much!  I  can hardly believe in 2 short weeks he will be 7 months old!  He is mobile.... He can roll all the way across the room for something or even push his feet and scout a little bit.  His brother and sister are promoting movement (I wish I could put a weight vest on him to hold him back).  His mommy isn't quite ready for him to be mobile!

We are off to San Diego for a week of SUN and FUN!  We cannot wait!  I will update in a week with pictures and much more!

A new way to communicate...

Well, I  am cancelling my facebook account soon and thought blogging may be a fun way to let people know how my family is doing and to post cute pictures of my kiddos.  Stay tuned for a great blog... The Shaffers are headed to San Diego next week for the wedding of Mark and Hilda Shaffer and a mini vacation for our own family.  I will share details in acouple of weeks!
