San Diego

In February we flew out to San Diego to see Ryan's family and show off the newest part of our family. Ryan's parents offered to buy us plane tickets out to San Diego and after the long cold winter we have had we graciously said yes! 

Getting ready to check in for our flight... 

 The Veteran flier Olivia and the Rookie Evelyn

 When we arrived Grandma Trish has Valentines bags waiting for us ... and what was attached to those bags?! Heart shaped balloons of course!! Evelyn LOVED hers and it kept her entertained for hours!

 Evelyn met her Grandpa Ken for the first time and both girls took to him immediately
Olivia had fun playing with her cousins and followed Bre around everywhere she went!

 It was warm and the sun was shining so we decided to go to Balboa Park... 
 We took pictures of all of the Grandkids... some turned out... 
 some didnt... 
 But most of them were pretty darn cute!

 While we were roaming Balboa we stumbled upon a few exotic birds that were on display... one of which made the rounds... 
 Evelyn was NOT a fan though... 

 We also met up with my step sister Melissa and her hubby Leland! 

 Ryan... being Ryan... 

 It rained for a bit but once the sun came out... so did the LivieBug! She chased around the birds and ran around soaking up the sun!
 Uncle Cory took Olivia on the Merry Go Round 

Olivia and Dylan enjoying the smaller Merry Go Round.

We had lots of fun and the girls handled the plane ride and long first couple of days like champs! More to come though... our trip was two and a half weeks long so there are PLENTY more pictures to post!

Evelyn is SIX MONTHS OLD!!

Today was Eva's 6 month check up! I cannot believe she is already 6 months old... time has flown by so fast! My girls are getting SO big. Speaking of big... Miss Evelyn's stats for her 6 mo check up today were:

  • Head: 80%
  • Weight:70%
  • Height:100% !!!! <--She is a tall one!
Miss Evelyn handled her shots like a champ and was her cheerful and grinning self for the remainder of the day. Here are some of Eva's 6 month pictures, you know you cant resist the EvieBug ;) 

 My little wiggle worm couldnt hold still but we were still able to get some really good pictures!
 "Mom.... are we done yet?"
 "Hey everyone look how big I am getting!" 
 The best smile from Evelyn thus far!! :)

Miss Evelyn 5 month pictures!

Evelyn turned 5 months old the day before we flew to San Diego! It was her first flight and handled it like a champ but our veteran flier Olivia ... not so much.

We didnt catch any smiles but we did later discover why she was gnawing on Olivias pink bracelet so much... She got her very first TOOTH!!! We didnt even know she was teething until her first tooth had broken through the surface. Evelyn is such a happy baby... always smiling, babbling, cooing and getting excited.


Playin In The Snow...

There is FAR too much snow in the North East for my liking. It is always beautiful to look at but so cold to be in. If winter wasnt so darn cold Im sure I would enjoy it more. This winter has been an odd one... the first have was mellow with maybe a dusting of snow. That all changed once January hit... snow snow EVERYWHERE! After much, much MUCH snow... we decided that we might as well go out and enjoy it! Olivia got all bundled up and waited patiently until Dad got home from work so she could go play! 

 Waiting for Dad ... 

 (Olivia is standing on about 2 1/2 ft of snow with probably an additional foot of snow drifted on the sides of the walk way)
 LivieBug on a huge mound of snow... also known as our yard. (Pardon the front of the house we started getting it ready to paint before winter hit) 
 Olivia didnt know what to think about the snow being taller than her!

 Yeah... that is a lot of snow! 
She was not a fan of standing out on the top of the snow all by herself ... 
 This is my favorite picture of the Winter... Below is them zoomed in and cropped! lol 

 Ryan putting Olivia to work... 

 She was a little more than tired after playing out in the snow for the first time! Maybe it was all that snow shoveling she did! 
Yup... Im gonna go with we wore her out pretty good that day!
