The Happiest Place on Earth

We headed down to SoCal on Thursday for a whirlwind weekend of fun. Heather, my best friend from kindergarten, got married on Saturday in Laguna Beach and we decided since we'd be that close we might as well take the kids to Disneyland on Friday. Here's the highlights of our trip:

Lauren said her favorite thing about Disneyland was getting her picture taken with Lightning McQueen! A big thanks to my cousin Cristina for meeting us there and giving us the inside scoop! See more Disneyland pictures here.

We had a great time at Heather and Paul's wedding on Saturday. It was gorgeous! It was nice to see some old friends and catch up on each other's lives. See more wedding pictures here.

For Great Aunt Jean

Owen just woke up from a nap and was following me down the hallway to eat lunch. He stopped, pointed to a moth on the wall, and said "Bug. Buuuuuug. Bug."

There's something about Owen

Happy 6th Anniversary to us!

Can I just say how nice it was to go out to dinner with friends AND without the kids???? P.S. Thank you for the gift certificate, Monica and Frederic!

Lauren is transitioning out of nap time. But on days she goes to school I can tell she's exhausted when she gets home, so I've been trying to make her at least lay down for some quiet time.

I've told her a million times if she cries that means she's tired. So just now I told her it was time for a rest. She started crying and said "I'm not tired!" So I asked her what crying meant. She said "It means I'm tired." Then through her tears she started laughing, like she had just realized how ridiculous she sounded. We both cracked up. She went to the bathroom and then I tucked her into bed. She was about to start whining and I asked her if she was going to cry. With a big grin and a giggle she said "No, silly Mama!"

God Bless America

Labor Day = Oxymoron

Well, our Labor Day weekend turned out to be not so labor-free. Okay, okay, mostly Adam's Labor Day weekend, but I helped, too!
