August 2016

The boys have been asking for a while to go to a dinosaur museum.
So this month, that's exactly what we did! We had so much fun, we ended up getting a family annual pass.

They are the sweetest siblings, and I love moments like this.

We also went camping at the beach this month with the Ellsworths. The Krepps met us down there for a beach day.



And of course, we had to get in some Disney days.

Porter is starting to like planes, and he earned his gi in karate!

He is the sweetest kid, and the other day he was really excited that I was letting him have screen time. He ran up and hugged me and says, " I love you so much mom, I just want to squeeze your arm and bite your head!" Not sure if I should be happy or scared?

We also had a mommy son date and went shopping for school supplies. I can't believe my baby is going to be a kindergartener.

He chose the world's ugliest backpack.


This is his first day of Kindergarten. We met his teacher, Mrs. Ayloush, a few days earlier and she seems really nice.

He was so excited and ready. Me...not so much.
There were quite a few tears shed, but I held it together until after I left his classroom.

I hope his teacher knows that my whole world is in her hands, and that she gets to spend more time with him during the day than I do.

I hope Porter knows that he can excel at anything, and he's destined for greatness!

This is after I picked him up. He had the best time and loved his teacher. He made a friend named Noah, and told me that he listened really well.

The only good thing about Porter being in school is that I get to spend some quality one on one time with Max. He's seriously so fun!

He also says the most random things. One day we were at home and he turns to me and says, "I don't want to live in this house anymore, I want to live in a candy house".

And he falls asleep in random places.

He's got a great group of buddies too.
Story time at the library and playing at the park are on our weekly schedule. 

This babe is 10 months!

She's crawling!!!!
She also cruises along furniture
2 more teeth broke through (4 total)
She says, "mama, dada, and baa (ball)"
She LOVES Max and wants to be with him always. He can always get her to laugh
She gets really giggly when she's tired

July 2016

July = Boy's Birthday!

Their party this year was so fun because they're both at an age where they look forward to it for a long time.

Keep a look out for a Rhino cake picture. Max had been telling me for the last 6 months or so, that he wants a Rhino cake for his birthday. Who knows where he came up with that?
Porter wanted a dinosaur theme.
Well...they both got what they wanted for the big 5 and 3!

Wizards party house was a perfect venue. The kids had a blast, we had the entire place to ourselves, and I didn't have to cook or clean for it!

Here's your long awaited Rhino cake, Mighty Max!

The next big event was 4th of July!

We spent the afternoon at a BBQ at the Thompsons...

Then we hit up our favorite rooftop in downtown Riverside to see the fireworks.

We spent the next day (Porter's actual Birthday) at Susie's house on the beach. The kids loved playing in the water, and I loved chatting with friends.

Porter started karate (he calls it ninja class) this month and it's THE cutest thing I've ever seen.
He takes it very seriously, and he's actually really good at it!
