Just a few days after Crew practiced riding his bike without training wheels with his Dad....he had it down! We couldn't believe how quick he picked up on it. I never thought he would be riding a bike with out training wheels at age 3. Here are some other "big boy" things Crew can do:
-ride his bike with out training wheels
-do a front flip on our trampoline
-swim all by himself (no floaties)
-has to get dressed every morning all by himself
-knows how to identify almost every letter
-can buckle/unbuckle his own car seat
-knows how to get on the internet and pull up nick jr. to play games
-knows how to start the shower and bath for himself (tests the water and all)
Last week we decided to drive down to Irvine because Crew was dying to play with his best friends, his cousins. So we met up with Tori and the boys, went to lunch at Chick-fil-A, then met Nicole and her kids at the Lagoon for an afternoon of swimming, sliding, boogie boarding and kickboarding. The kids absolutely loved the Lagoon...we will be back soon for sure!
The boys and I decided it was time to do a playdate/lunch at our house with all of our friends. The kids enjoyed jumping in the pool, playing in the sprinkler, riding bikes, playing in the playhouse, eating some treats and playing inside with toys. We had so much fun! Crew is already asking me if we can have ALL of his friends over again. After everyone left today Crew said, "Thanks Mom...that was such a fun day with all my friends!" I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful mommy's.
I scored big time with Wyatt! He is so amazing and I love him more and more each day. We have had so many fun adventures just within the 4 years we have been married...and I can't wait to have many many more. I swear it feels like yesterday when I first met you and I came running home to tell my family all about this "hot guy" I met. And now 2 kids later...here we are. Crazy! I love you so much. Thanks for always putting up with me. I love you even more for that. I still think your "hot" and I love you...Happy 4 years!
This year we had such a great 4th of July. We are usually out selling somewhere for the summer so since we are home for summers now, it was really nice spending the forth just relaxing with my family. We went down to my parents Beach House for the long weekend and had fun cooking up some yummy food, playing games, going out to dinner at Outback and then going to see grown-ups with my parents while the boys had a sitter, swimming (Crew is a little fish now that he can swim on his own!), hitting up Jack's for the sale, and of course watching fireworks over the Dana Point Harbor right in front of my parents house at pine's park. Thanks Mom and Dad for a fun little weekend. We love being with you guys!!
Our good friends, Marcus and Jamie lived in California for a month so we tried to hang out with them as much as we could. We went to the Fashlion District (bought Crew and Lyza turtles), went to the grove and the farmers market in LA, the boys and I drove down to Long Beach (where the Yetters were staying) and Jamie and I took the kids to lunch and walked around in Belmont Shores and found the cutest little candy shop and had to indulge. We of course hit up the beach a few times, went to six flags to celebrate Jamie's birthday and also went to the midnight showing of Eclipse VIP style! (Thanks Krystal...you are the best!) It was so much fun having the Yetters close to us. You guys better get out here soon so we can play some more!! We better end up living next door to each other when we are both done with school! I miss you already Jamie!
We are a family of five living in beautiful Pasadena, CA while my husband attends dental school at USC. He is now in his fourth and final year. I am a stay at home mother and I enjoy spending time with our three kids. Crew is 5, Hudson is 3 and baby Navy was born on January 12, 2012.
