Coronado and Cousin Love
We went down and spent a festive night in Coronado. They had fireworks, an ice skating rink, kiddie games, a Santa appearance and we got to see the Christensens and their darling kiddos:)
Look at those two Santas:) These cousins are too cute together. My brother Chris and his wife Nicole had their sweet little Nixon 11 days after Liam was born. They love each other already:)

Our Baby Love
Little Liam is 12 days old now! We have loved every minute of him so far. He is such a sweet baby:)
Here he is just a few days old and with some of his buddies.
Avery loves being a big sister! She has been a good helper and loves to love on Liam (sometimes a little too much:).
Most of these pictures were taken in the hospital and are already over a week old! Time is flying by. We are crazy about our little guy.

Birthday Weekend
The last year of my 20s has arrived and we celebrated all weekend long (2 weekends ago:) We went to a Padres game and had a blast.
Had dinner with Jake and Lindsey and went to Avery's crush Conrad's Bday party.
Then had a family dinner on my actual Bday. The cake decor crew out did themselves this year with an awesome beach cake and frosted barbie doll:) It was a great weekend!

Sandy Girl
Scott and I have recently considered re-naming Avery "Sandy". She loves to roll around in the sand and it sticks like crazy to her sunblock. This equals an extremely sandy girl! It is funny to look at but Avery never seems to mind one bit. I think the names Sandy and Shellie sound pretty cute together ... We will see:)

The Haps
Life has been busy busy busy the last 4 weeks ... we moved the last week of July out of Bakersfield and to our new town Cardiff by the Sea. It is just adorable and Avery, Scott and I are in heaven with all there is to do around here:) Scott has been surfing a ton, Avery and I have been enjoying the beach, friends and VGs donuts yum yum!
I wish I had more picutres of all we have been up to but I keep forgetting to bring my camera ... we have been to Sea World, gone sailing, visited Legoland, the aquarium at Legoland and gone to a bunch of new restraunts and beaches. Last weekend we hit the central coast to attend one of my best highschool friend's wedding up in Santa Ynez. It was gorgeous!! Kim made a beautiful bride and planned the most gorgeous wedding ever. Kevin was a handsome groom too but somehow didn't get in any of my photos:(
We have LOVED living closer to so many amazing friends and family. We have missed them all so much! So far we are loving our new town and life is good. Only 2 months until little dude arrives!! Time is flying ...

Party Party Party
We have been celebrating Scott's 30 bday for weeks. I think he has enjoyed his 30s so far:) On Scott's actual Bday we met up with some of our Pepperdine friends and ate at the Cheesecake factory! Yum!
The next weekend we headed down south for his big 30th bash! It was a blast the boys played a football game that lasted almost 2 hours, the ladies chatted it up and the kids played at the park. We had some yummy pizza, cake and a pinata! Wish I would have taken more pictures of the crew we had there. Thanks to everyone who came! It was a fun party:)

The Fish
Avery love, love, loves to swim. She just finished her swim lesson session and LOVED it! She loved the fact that she had a teacher and that she was a student. She got a "special ribbon" in the middle of her session when they moved her up from being a Goldfishy to a Tadpole. Boy was she excited! She put the ribbon on the fridge and admires it all the time:) Sorry for the blurry pictures, I had to take them through the glass window).

Happiest place on Earth?
It was this day to this girl:) Avery's reward for potty training was going to Disneyland with her Grandma Kimmy. Boy was she excited!! We had her amped up about it for months (we had taken her when she was teeny but she was too small to remember). This was about a month ago and Avery still can't stop talking about all the fun she had. She even talked Grandma Kimmy into getting her a huge Minnie Mouse stuffed animal for a souvenir. Sneaky girl:) We hope to take her back soon!

Memorial on the River
We had a blast Memorial weekend out at my parents river house. Avery surfed it up 3 times and loved whipping around on the tube, quads and sea doos.
We enjoyed spending time with family, loved being out on the water and even got a special visit from the Christensens:) Avery cried when it was time to go and wished we could have stayed all summer. Would be nice. We love river trips!
