Southern California trip 09

Here are a few pictures from our recent trip to Southern California. We made the trip down for our niece's first birthday. The boys and I stayed down at the beach for almost two weeks. I think the pictures say it all!

I love this pic of the boys....Aiden's sweet sensitive face pondering the moment and Ashton's ever big smile ready for anything. Mommy loves her boys!!!

(Possible Christmas card pic. What do you think?)

My favorite picture of the trip. This is the life guard tower right out in front of Steve's parents house. We kissed for the very first time right here. ;) Ten years later we are back with our beautiful boys!

Kites on the beach

Grandma Barb got the boys the coolest kites. The went up so easily.
They had a blast flying them on the beach. Perfect weather to fly a kite.

The three cousins in their matching Halloween p.j's.

Don't you think Chloe looks like Boo from Monster's Ink?!?

She is the cutest and sweetest little girl ever and I'm so glad I get to be her Auntie M!

Aiden laughing way to much on the tea cups!

I had to add this one of Steve...he hates the teacups but sucked it up for his boys!

He's a great dad!!!!


Full speed ahead!

Ashton loved it too

Happy Halloween

We were the vampire family....bats and all! This year we went down to our friend's house for a spooky dinner, scary drinks, and yummy dessert. Jaimee went all out!!! You'll have to check out her blog for more pictures. (The one of us I stole off her blog......I'm so bad at uploading pics). We all had to dress up. Those of you that know me know how much I love Halloween so this was a real treat. After a great dinner we all headed out for trick or treating. The boys had so much fun with their friends and so did Steve and I! Thanks Jaimee and Ted for a fun Halloween Night!
