Our kids

Summer is slowly coming to an end.
It feels like it just started and now halloween is almost here-YIKES!
We have really started to feel the grind of things to come.
The boys are only 3 and 2 and already they have pretty full schedules.
I couldn't help but think ahead to 10+ years from now when they are even busier.
Or even when they are both driving and dating and working and....
Oh boy, I get emotional just thinking about it. But it also excites me.
I look forward to our boys and their future activities and life experiences.
But for now I will focus on preschool and t-ball. Mommy and me and playgroups.
But with as quickly as summer flew by, who knows how fast the next few years will go by.
So here is to this next school year and not taking the "every day" grind for granted.
Because summer 2011 will be here before we know it :)

Boys trip!

Tommy was able to go to San Francisco with his friend Josh last week to the 49er Monday night football game.
As you can see from the pics their seats were very close so they had a great time near all of the action!
It was a close game and one that they were both glad they got to see live.
Fun trip!

Cute show, cute family

Quints by Surprise on TLC is one of the cutest shows I have ever seen.
I was reluctant at first, but this is NOT another Jon and Kate plus 8.
This is a cute southern family, with practically the same story line as J&K+8, but they are so dang cute (and I can actually watch and enjoy).
The husband and wife ( Ethan and Casey Jones) are a young, funny and down to earth couple with a crazy life. But they make it work and seem so normal.
Check it out!

Our summer wouldn't be complete without a visit from Grandpa and Grandma Bell!
We were lucky enough to have Grandma Bell here for 2 whole weeks and Grandpa for 1 week.
We had so much fun playing, visiting, beaching and everything else we do here in San Diego!
The boys LOVE the beach. Weston actually was a little afraid of the ocean, but Ashton, Grandma and Grandpa showed him it was too fun to be afraid. He is now an ocean/wave pro.
Thanks for the fun visit! Come back soon:)

Boys playing Wii.........gotta love Mario Cart
My family (minus my dad and one sis) was able to come to San Diego and spend a whole week here. We did so much and the boys were in HEAVEN with all of the attention and the week full of play.
We did Sea World, the beach, ate out, ate in, played games, went on walks did the beach some was awesome!
I was also able to take my sisters senior pics while she was here and we had a great time at La Jolla cove doing that. Man did we get some great shots (we will save those pics for another post).
Can't wait for you guys to come out again! The beach is calling!
