Look who's three, where did the time go!?!
This year we were lucky enough to spend her birthday - for the first time with her Grandparents, Great Grandma, cousins and our close friends. It was a very impromtu party, with a bit of chaos, but I think the kids enjoyed it! Mommy was a bit fried but I guess that is to be expected!

Had to have the princess balloon for the Princess Party!Nana helping Sarah on her new bike

This was the pinata that wouldn't die - a man had to step in!
The princess is ready for her cupcakes!
But not ready to blow out the candles! (Cupcakes were made by Jakob and Daddy and were great!)

Present time...
First dress up shoes! Thanks' s Auntie Ang!

Sarah, my Birthday wish for you is that you keep your desire to be independent, in your style, thoughts, actions etc., it does make your parents job a 100 times harder, but it will serve you well as a woman!!

Fun weekend with old friends!

The Sula-Goff family came down for a visit this weekend. We figured out that we have known eachother for about 16 years, and our friendship is just as strong now, even after being away for 6 years. Feels so right being back here with them, even better that our kiddos all mesh together as if they've known eachother for that long too.

The whole crazy gang at La Jolla cove, up close and personal with the seals.
Emilie (4) and Sarah, a sweet and silly pair - here they turned away from me and said "Cheese" to the seals!

Our first trip to the SD zoo, and wouldn't you know it, a camel walked right by us! Sarah LOVES camels, she hopped out of her stroller and had a grin from ear to ear, and then yelled, "Hey look at that camel's silly bum!" That's my girl!
Jakob is serious about animal watching! I don't have any pics of his favorite part of the day - watching a Condor eat a rabbit and an eagle eat a rodent - nature at it's best.
Ezra (20 months). Jakob loves Ezra, he told Mark, "I want a little brother, just like this one!" Jakob had Ezra laughing hysterically last night, can't wait to see their friendship grow.
Emilie and Sarah, at the zoo
Had a ton of fun, can't wait until the next time!
