Randomness...

Has anyone seen these?  They have them at Target and Walmart...why does this crack me up?!

The kids started hanging out in our tiny linen closet- weirdos!  The even got an extension cord so they could put a light inside!

When Gary went to Japan for work, they gifted him a couple kimonos for the kids, and we put them in the closet and totally forgot about them.  Ella found them recently, and look how cute!

And selfie central!  Selfies while at dinner at a friend's house...

Selfies while doing clay masks...

And selfies at the car dealership to entertain the 5 year old! ;)

First Day of School 2017

School started early this year on August 22nd!  I hate that school starts before Labor Day now!  But it is really nice to be back to our routine. And the kids are FINALLY at the same school- yippee!!

Friends...

Everett's table...

Of course we had to do brunch with mimosas to celebrate no more kids at home all day everyday! ;)

I'm the kinder liaison so I made these for all the new kinder parents...

And these girls...always trying to dress the same for school...

End of Summer- August 2017

Summer went fast, but they packed a lot into the last week before school!

The first slumber party at our house- movie night style!  Ella has had tons of sleepovers at her friend's houses, but we finally did one here, which made Everett exceptionally happy since he isn't allowed to do sleepovers yet.

Another concert at the golf course...

With a few playdates scattered in!

Fairy Trail

On August 12th we took the kids to the "Fairy Trail" in Aliso Viejo.  The fairies were flying back to Ireland that weekend so we made it just in time!  It was very cute.

Staycation

We took a quick staycation at the Hyatt Huntington Beach and had such a great time!  We will definitely be doing this more often.

Our room had a full ocean view!

Pizza at the pool with an ocean view!

Dinner and drinks at Watertable...

OC Fair with grandma and grandpa...

Days at friends' pools...

Eating a whole watermelon on the sidewalk with neighbors...

Moms brunch...

Another beach day with friends...

Sleepovers...

Soccer...and the crazy parents

Summer soccer came to end, and Everett did great!  They combine U7 and U8 for summer, so Everett was one of the youngest on the team and still played like a champ!  Luckily my friend got some great action shots...

And then the parents (of our baseball team, which is basically the same kids) had a bit of a crazy night!
