Yosemite 2015

A few weeks ago we packed up the car and headed to Yosemite for a family trip. At one point (not that long ago either) we swore we would never drive with the kids again for long distances. Thankfully the car ride there wasn't too bad. It was absolutely gorgeous there. I think the kids even liked it! The first day we had a delicious breakfast and then hiked up to Yosemite Falls. Of course Buster melted down - so Andrew had to take him back for his afternoon nap. But me, Olive, Mom, and Auntie Connie enjoyed ourselves! (more to come……)

Olive and Buster Updates

We are in our new house……but there still seems like there are a ton of things left to do. I'm hoping that once we get our art up on the walls - it will feel more like home. Thankfully the kids are LOVING it here. We have dinner outside every night and there is so much room for them to run around. 


- Has inherited her mothers obsession with shoes (I'm in trouble)
- Currently says she wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up
- Is extremely excited about starting her new school
- Going to learn to swim this summer
- Already has a loose tooth (could be natural, but we think she hit it on the bathtub)
- Loves her dance classes. She also says she wants to be a dancer when she grows up
- Says that Adam Levine is her favorite singer. She's watched his Sugar video about 100 times.


- Made it through an entire movie at the theater (we were AMAZED!)
- Starting to put more words together. I can't wait until he is full on talking
- Definitely in the midst of his terrible twos.
- Has a thing for older girls
- We are trying to ween him off of HappyTot Pouches… and failing. He loves them more than anything
- Fascinated by anything with wheels (cars, trains, planes)
- Takes 20 things into his crib when he sleeps - tonight it was 4 cars, a tractor, an airplane, his toothbrush, an alarm clock, and a piggy bank. I'm not even kidding.

Olive's Preschool Class

I took this picture of Olive's preschool class for the yearbook. I can't believe that she will be starting a new school in August. We certainly are going to miss this crew.

Olive's First Ballet Recital

Olive's been taking ballet and tap classes at a new dance studio for the last year. Saturday morning she had her very first recital. She was beyond amazing and adorable in her two numbers. I promise to post a video as soon as I get a copy!

A couple of weeks ago Olive's preschool had a field trip to the Butterfly Exhibit at the Natural History Museum. The class has been learning all about caterpillars and butterflies for the last month so all the little ones were beyond excited! Everyone of course, except Buster. He was over it after 7 1/2 minutes.

8 Long Years

Today is our 8 year wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that we've been together for that long!

To celebrate - I took Andrew out on Sunday night. We had dinner at Alimento and then roller skating at Moonlight Roller Rink. Let me just say this: we had the BEST TIME EVER!

I forgot how much I loved to skate! Tonight Andrew is taking me out for our actual anniversary. We'll see what he has in store for me…...
