Catching up

We have been really bad about posting on the blog! It has been a crazy summer/fall so far. Lots of work and play. Here is an attempt to highlight the last couple months.

The kids participated in their first 5K. The San Diego Aids Walk.

Dressing up in Georgia's shoes.

Dressing up in mama's shoes.

Georgia has also started these crazy poses when I take pictures!

Georgia got her first big girl haircut and blow out from Mama's stylist Badri.

She did so well!

It helped that they had lemonade and cookies...

Quinn as started paying attention to the TV!

Uh oh!

Georgia had her first sleepover.

This is what the girls looked like in the morning.

Sideways in the bed. They giggled all night long.

Quinn loves to put things on his hand and walk around.

Puppets, socks,...

Mama's kitchen things...

Our neighbors brought over pink cupcakes.

It was pretty potent frosting! We couldn't get the red color off for a couple days!

Super 70s.

Our other son is doing well too.

Quinn loves to throw the ball for Rocky.

Georgia loves to boss Rocky around and he is actually listening to her!

We go to the beach often.

Little king in his chair.

What else does a king need at the beach but fishy crackers, daddy's chair, and a juice?

See, another pose.

Rockstar beach babe.

Georgia and Daddy went on a date to see the Lion King.

Georgia brought her school mascot Spirit along.

She LOVED the Lion King.
In the middle of the movie she turned to Brendan and said "You are the best daddy ever!"

Brendan at the Beach

Brendan really does deserve his own post after his performance at the beach today.

Handsome Devil.

Is that a flex?

Chi baby.

Oh Yeah. Check it.

Miss California.

Teaching G bad habits.
Quinn is just speechless.
Mama couldn't be prouder. At least the women volleyball players won't be picking him up this morning...

Morning at the beach

O.K. It is official. We love San Diego. There is nothing like an early morning at the beach! Surfers, volleyball players, and yoga circles. It is so chill and fabulous. Great way to spend a few hours getting out of the house on a cloudy morning.

Quinn trying a little downward dog.

Did you say don't throw that sand? Oops!

Lovin on the brother.

Maybe I can make a quick getaway here...

Ride em dolphin!

Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth of July up in Willits. It is so nice to be within driving distance. The whole fam damily was there. Rocky included. The kids got to go to the parade, visit with cousins, grandparents, great grandparents, and even see fireworks at Auntie Dana's house! We played in the pool, went fishing, and helped with the animals.

Uncle Buddy holding a chicken for Georgia and Cousin Porter to pet.

Georgia is obsessed with horses and loved helping Grandpa feed them.

Georgia and Porter running to see the pigs and Patches the pony.

Georgia helping Grandma with treats!

Choosing bait with Grandpa

Georgia loves fishing.

Eating in string cheese in bed with Cousin Porter.

Watch out Grandpa! Water fight going on!

Water fight!

We even got to stop over in SF and see Aunties Mary Florence and Patricia.
Grandpa Bob was also there for a visit!

Daddy and Grandpa chillin in the late afternoon sun.

Grandma Gaye watering her flowers.

Of course the kids helped her...

Georgia ready for the rodeo!
Happy Fourth of July!

Fashionable, no doubt about it

Both our kids love dressing up. It is a daily activity. Quinn loves putting on hats, sunglasses and Daddy's flip flops! Georgia is always surprising us with new and creative outfits.

This was an outfit she put on right after getting out of the bath.

Quinn loved these accessories!

Sweet Baby Boy

Our little guy is growing up so fast. 16 Months, wow! He is talking like a champ (my favorite is when he says "U-Turn!") and runs so fast! Fearless. We have to watch him close. If we leave the room for 30 seconds he will try and climb on something, like the dining room table! He loves water, adores his sister Georgia, can kick a soccer ball, throw a ball and gives the best kisses (I'm pretty sure this is a future super power)! He is learning animal sounds and still loves music. He can climb up the big kids playground and goes down slides that scare mama! His teachers say what a great communicator is. They always know what he wants. And let me tell you, if he wants something, he is not shy in letting you know. We love him so much.

O.K. I know we are biased but isn't that the cutest nose ever?
Oh, and that is definitely the Orvis forehead...

Deep Thoughts by Georgia

Latest conversation driving home:

G: Why didn't Amy answer the phone?
K: It's the last day of school, she is probably celebrating.
G: How do she celebrate?
K: She is probably drinking wine.
G: You drink wine.
K: Yes, I do. I like wine.
G: If you drink a lot of wine...then you have to go to the Dr.

I have no idea where she got this from but it cracked me up.

Introducing Elmo

Mama introduced Quinn to Elmo singing on her iPhone the other day. He was immediately in love. Here is the look on his face. He kept saying "more!"

Disneyland with Daddy

We had a great Father's Day at Disneyland. Georgia LOVED meeting all the characters and going on rides. Quinn wasn't too sure about them. Minnie Mouse actually made him cry. He loved the rides though and danced all the way through Its a Small World. He even went on his first carousal ride.

Happy Fathers Day Daddy!

Oh Minnie your so fine...Don't mind me Mickey.

Georgia LOVED meeting snow white at dinner.
