letter from home

Dear Dad,

I just wanted to show you some things mom and I have been up to.

Sometimes we eat popsicles for breakfast

We like to go swimming in the pool or bathtub with your old chemistry goggles

Mom went to the Taylor Swift Concert

Friends have gotten married

I've been helping mom shred things

And we've done lots of hanging out

We sure miss you around here.

My Little Blue Box


This arrived from Switzerland yesterday-just in time for mother's day. I apparently don't give my husband the credit he deserves because I honestly thought he would forget. I am starting to feel a little guilty about the dress I bought myself as my back-up present...

p.s. it was a pair of earrings

Our First Official Family Vacation

With a big giant change looming over us (that happened May 2nd), we decided to take a little family vacation to spend some serious time together-just the 3 of us. Pete has an uncle that lives in California during the week, but goes home to his family in Utah on the weekends, and he let us stay in his rental home. I got off work on a Friday afternoon and we then headed down to California for the weekend. Ryan was better than we ever imagined that he could be in the car-in fact Pete told me I complained more about the car ride than Ryan did:)

We headed to disneyland Saturday, it was so crowded that we didn't get to ride a lot of rides, but we still had a great time. We rode bikes and went to the beach and then Monday we headed down to the San Diego Zoo and then drove home from there. It was a quick trip but so much fun.

Ryan was terrified of the characters

He LOVED the Buzz Lightyear ride
