A Day at the Beach

Just before the Daddy had to go back to work we had some REALLY hot weather.  This meant it was MUCH to hot to go to the park or play in the backyard and we were really wanting to spend some nice family time together so we escaped the heat and drove about an hour away to the beach.  It was a wonderful day and I was sad to see it end as it meant that our time with Daddy home was about to end.  It meant that Hudson was almost one month old, and that things would soon be going back to a new normal.

The day was bitter sweet, I really have some mixed emotions about time passing now especially knowing that this will be our last baby and knowing how quickly time passes.


N&A's Party #1

For N&A's actual birthday we had a smaller family gathering.  Their actual Birthday happened to fall on opening night of Raider football and the DH is a die hard Raider fan.  I am not sure who enjoyed this party more the boys or the Daddy.  It just so happened that two days before this I hosted my Best Friend's 40th FIESTA birthday party.  We had a margarita machine,  a taco vendor, karaoke, and kegs of Mexican beer. Well we had LOTS of left over food and beer so N&A's party turned into a football fiesta.  We played the game in the backyard on a projector screen.  I made cupcakes and a couple dips and warmed up all the leftovers and off we went.  This was a smallish event and we all had a blast focusing one our favorite little pair.

The hit of the night were the "far-fuckels" (tricycles) form Grammy and Papa and the teeter-totter from Great-Grammy and Papa Boyd.  The quote of the night was made by Aaden after the presents were opened "where did the Birthday go?"

 Who knew $4 balloons could be so entertaining.  Thank you Grammy for coming over on your lunch break and surprising us with balloons.

 Yup, that describes it!

 Woody and Buzz... HUGE hits!  Thank you Hernandez Clan.
 A puzzle for our puzzle man.  Well OF COURSE he knew all the numbers and could put that puzzle together in a flash.  That child AMAZES ME!
