Josh got one! He waited in line for about 1 hour. He was number #10 in line. He is so happy! You would think it was Christmas around here!

Carson at 11 Months

Cooper at 11 Months

10 DAYS!

We moved our trip up. Only 10 more days until we go see Mickey again! The boys are so excited, especially Carson. He tells me every morning who we are going to see at Disneyland (Donald, Mickey, Minnie, Buzz, and Lighting McQueen). I can't believe how great his memory is. He can tell me so much about our last trip to Disneyland, and that was 6 months ago. This trip is going to be really great because Josh gets to go this time. The first time we went he was up in Portland running a half marathon. The second time he was in Iraq. This is going to be a great trip!!!

Emma turned 11 months old yesterday. I can't believe how fast time has gone by. She is going to be 1 in a month. She is crawling everywhere and getting into everything. She is pulling herself up on the couch. She is so funny and cute! I love her so much!


Josh's sister Chelsea visited us this week. The kids had so much fun playing with her. It is so nice having family visit! We had a great week!

We had a great time in San Francisco. The weather was great. We walked around Fisherman's Wharf and did all our usual things. It was alot of fun!


Josh wanted to go see the tidepools the kids and I went to last weekend. The tide was really high so we couldn't see the tidepools. However, there were alot of seals swimming right along the beach. They were so close! It was really cool.

37 DAYS!

Only 37 days until our first family trip! Everyone is really excited!! We will be going to Monterey, Pismo Beach, Long Beach, Disneyland, Palm Springs, and San Diego! Carson is so excited to go back to Disneyland. He talks about it all the time. He remembers so much about our last visit. He has quite the memory!!! Josh has not been to Disneyland with the kids yet, so that will be fun. Emma also has not been there yet. I think she will have fun on the rides. That is what is great about Disneyland. All the kids can go on so many rides! I think the boys like meeting the characters more, but they love to go on rides also. Anyway, it should be an awesome trip!

We will be going to San Francisco this weekend. It has been 100° and hotter all week. We are looking forward to some cooler weather! It should be fun. This will be the first time all 5 of us have stayed in a hotel together. It will be sort of a trial run for our big Southern California trip next month. We'll see how Emma does. I'm sure she will be wonderful as always! Expect pictures Sunday night or Monday.

Josh took the boys to an airshow last Sunday. The boys had a great time watching the "fast", "huge" and "loud" (Carson's words) airplanes. They stayed as long as they could, but you can tell by the redness of their faces it was hot.

Yesterday I decided to take the kids to the beach, ALL BY MYSELF. We went to Half Moon Bay, Moss Beach, and Pacifica. (Just south of San Francisco) The kids were really great. Josh thought I was crazy. We had so much fun together. The weather was perfect! We will have to do it again!

We had so much fun walking around the tidepools. The boys loved jumping and climbing around the rocks. They did really well considering it was really slippery. We found lots of crabs and little fish. The boys were so excited!


After the tidepools we went to play at the beach. The boys dug in the sand and splashed in the waves. Emma had her first taste of sand. We have a great afternoon playing!
