Bay Area Discovery Museum

The first Wednesday of every month, the Bay Area Discovery Museum is FREE...and that's where you can find us! :) It's such a cool place.  It has learning centers and craft places and my kids could play for hours in the different parks and outdoor play areas.  As you'll see, the kids often have a hard time leaving.
All suited up in the space center

I love catching moments like this one :)
When we came out of the Space Center, some kids were sitting in our wagon and their moms were taking pictures (it wasn't the last time that happened that day) and I WISH you could have seen the look on Kallie's face!  Lol!  If looks could kill....

Before I had kids, I never knew there were different ways to eat a PB&J.  In our house, there are three....
Timmy takes it apart and eats one side at a time
Emma eats it "normal"
And Kallie takes it apart and licks it to death!


Independence Day!

I love Fourth of July..I don't know why, I just do.  It's a holiday that comes without much pressure to do anything spectacular.  It's just about hanging out with family, eating good ol' American barbecued food, and enjoying a hot summer day. And more than anything we do on Fourth of July, it's just the feeling of Independence Day that I love!

Emma being cute!
Timmy and Mommy
People always ask how I tell the girls apart...the next two pictures are how.  It's just a look or an expression...they may look alike, but they are very different!
Oh no he didn't......
Yes, he REALLY did wear that out!  And this was the approved outfit!  You should have seen the first one he picked out!  What can I say...he's patriotic!!!
Daddy and Emma
I couldn't believe how much they loved this huge slide!

Emma keeping cool with a sno-cone

Hanging out at Papa and Grandma's house for dinner.  This is what trying to take a picture of all three of them is like - Timmy wants to put his arm around everybody, Emma wants nothing to do with it, and Kallie is only worried about one thing....her pop!
4th of July wouldn't be complete without a little patriotic tattoo...
Me and my girls ready for fireworks!


To keep this short and sweet, on June 10th I made one of the best and most important decisions of my life....I married my best friend, the love of my life, and the man of my dreams.

Tim, you looked exactly as I had imagined you would....
There have been times in my life when I doubted I would ever get married, and I wondered if I did, if my dad would still be around to walk me down the aisle.  Between seeing Tim out on the beach and having my dad next to me, holding my hand, it was an emotional walk down the "aisle" for me.
The kids were SO good during the ceremony.  They stayed pretty close to us the whole time and I was just glad nobody had to go chasing after them into the ocean.

At the end of the ceremony my dad gave Tim and I and our family a blessing.
First walk down the aisle as a family..."officially."
Our family and my life!
The whole group
Show me your shaka!
