Wedding, Grandmas and Grandpas, Disneyland, Camping, oh my!

Earlier this year we purchased season tickets to Disneyland as we ‘frequent’ southern California often to visit family and figured it would be a fun activity to do while down there.  Suffice it to say, we’ve been many times and will be returning many times this Summer in order to remain sane.

Last month I finally took my first vacation in years.  All my PTO hours have always gone to pregnancy leave, and therefore the only vacations I ever took were 3 day ones.  We went to San Diego for my friend’s wedding, visited my Grandpa, went to Disneyland, visited Grandma’s and Grandpa, then went camping on the beach!  It was a fun 10 day vacation but we were also glad to return home as living out of a suitcase with 6 people just isn’t fun for too long.  Although when we goto Canada, we are more than willing to make the sacrifice and stay there for a long time 🙂

Brooklyn update

Brooklyn is about 6 months old now and a crawling machine.  It’s a milestone we’ve looked forward to for awhile but now that she’s crawling everywhere, it’s something we forget how tiresome it can be keeping up with her and ensuring she’s not getting into anything.

When we’re not chasing her around the house, we’re doing everything we can do make her laugh…

San Francisco and Canada?!

I came into contact with my birth mom, Mavis, for the first time in 2008. Since then we’ve exchanged emails and phone calls and then just last November she came and stayed with us for a week! We had a fun time with her and the kids kept her entertained 🙂 We went to San Francisco with her and my dad one of the days. Thank goodness for beautiful weather. Doesn’t her hair color look familiar?
