Treven and Andon (his best friend) took a train ride to San Francisco. Words can not describe how much fun they had. Here are a couple of pictures to prove my point. Treven and Andon are only 5 months apart and they couldn't be better buddies. All that was missing were their cousins Logan & Brayden!

Here are just a few pictures from our Friday Outing. We started the day out by going to the Jelly Belly Factory. I got this idea from my cousin. She is what you would call a "Field Trip Mommy". She likes to take her kids to places to show them how things are made and what not. So I thought that I would like to try the same thing. We had a wonderful time watching Jelly Belly's being made! Treven was fascinated but Maycie was a little afraid of all the people. And there was A-LOT of people! I guess everyone and their mom's dog had the same idea. But fun anyhow!
Then we headed over to a little amusement park for families. It was the perfect sized park for a number of reasons. My 4 year old could ride every ride by himself and my 1 year old could ride all of them with us holding her! That to me, is family friendly. Also, we were able to ride all the rides, play video games, and make memories in about 1 1/2 hours! Perfect sized park in all aspects!
All in all, we had a tired family when we got home, but a happy one at that! Nothing beats good clean family fun!

Erik's mom fell outside of our home and broke her foot last week! She was saying goodbye to Treven who was standing in the window waving and she lost her footage and slip and broke her foot. We went running outside to help her, naturally! Well, Maycie was in her highchair so I knew, just knew she would be O.K. for 2 mins while we helped Erik's mom. Oh boy, I couldn't have been more WRONG! This is what we found the little missy doing when we came back in...
She had wiggled herself out of the highchair and onto the TABLE where her applesauce apparently couldn't wait to be eaten! O.K. so if that doesn't qualify me for "Mom of the Year" award, just take a good look at how close she is to the edge! AHHHHH!
Now look at her face..."What, what did I do?"
My sisters and I decided to surprise my mom with a trip to San Diego! We didn't tell her anything about the trip until about 3 hours till our plane left. Her reaction to the surprise was far better than any of us could have ever asked for. This is the first trip that just all us girls have gone on. We did plenty of shopping, eating, talking, seeing, and anything else that we could think of. NO KIDS! It was truly a vacation for me! We had a blast and we think we are going to try and make this an annual thing! (Not the surprise, of course.)
We never realized how much we all looked alike until this trip. It was great!
