A visit from my sisters!!!

Mason and Luke's pictures...not so identical anymore.  I love Lukes long hair and he gets so much attention, Mason has decided to grow his out a bit too.

This is a regular occurrence.  As is the wet dog smell.

One of my besties from High School came out to Coachella so we got to go to lunch, it was like the past 26 years just faded away, so much fun!!

My fabulous nephew Ethan, 2nd straight year as top backwards jump roper in the state of New Hampshire.  Missy said 'if only they had a scholarship for this'.

Another beautiful sunset.

Miss, Jono and their 4 kiddos came to visit along with Betsy and Brady.  It was so fun having all of us together again. We did a morning walk to donuts.  

Lots of tramp time.

Missy's littles were obsessed with the chickens and the eggs.  They checked about every 30 minutes.  My dad put 8 back one night after they went to bed so they would find a bunch in the morning, so excited!!  

Mason & Syd.

Sunday night before dinner out.


Dad and the guys.

Mason and Jazzy Cat Luke

Auggie loved Missy!!

Wednesday Miss, Betsy, Brady and I took the 7 kiddos to Knott's Berry Farm.  A beautiful day and not crowded at all.

Mason & Syd.

Mason and Drew.  Every ride Drew got off he claimed was the best and wanted to ride again and again.  

Mason & Ethan

Brady, Drew & Ethan.

Mason, Ethan, Luke & Betsy

Brady & Syd.  She is a little daredevil and loved all the rides too.

Ty, Ethan, Luke & Drew

My boys rode this 3 times, no thank you!

Betsy & Syd

All the big boys.  Betsy, Brady and Ty rode this two times back to back and then all the boys went again.  I have not laughed that hard in a very long time. 

Using the dryer afterwards.  It was such a fun time with all of them, can't wait to do it again.

Sunday Eric and Steve took the boys on a hike to dry falls.  Auggie was in rough shape on Monday.  Sore legs and paws.  He's back to his normal swiper self today.


Ty played in a paintball tournament in Moorpark on Sunday with a new team.  He in is love.

Fun in the Sun and the Cubs

Last week I got my first award at RBC with a nice bonus and some beautiful flowers to go along with it.

We enjoyed a lovely Saturday afternoon birthday party at the Jensen's last weekend.

Steve was pretty good about throwing all the boys up in the air for some fun pool jumps.

The girls.


Sunday we all headed to Anaheim to watch the last preseason game, Cubs vs. Angels.  It was a beautiful day and we all enjoyed the game, even though the Cubs lost...and my boys rubbed it in just a bit.

Easter with the Family

They boys had a fun time checking out the chickens.

The little bobblehead.

Grandma treated us to dinner at Hibachi one night, that always keeps the kiddos entertained.


Eric, Karen and Jill took the boys to the Living Desert one day for some outside fun.

After finding their baskets.  The Easter Bunny just can't win, she hid them too easy and this year too hard.



Coloring eggs.

A trip to the water park always makes kids happy.

Photo bomb.




Mason and Luke enjoyed reading to Tobin and Escher.








My attempt at chick eggs.  


The egg hunt, I really hope they found all of them!!!

He loved all the people around.



One last family pic with my selfie stick before everyone left.  Love them.
