Poo happens

Here we are having a perfectly good time in our back yard pool

When this happens

I made Austin cry dry heaving and cleaning these bad boys. YUCK!

Just Overheard

The doorbell just rang, and Tyler ran to get the door. I hear the two neighbor girls bust in. With one breath the younger one says, "We are here to play; Tyler, get some pants on- NOW!" Of course, he complies right away. Why doesn't that work for me?

Enjoying life

Austin loves to climb

Just posing for the camera
This is the best I could do for a picture together
We've spent too much time at Home Depot, and not enough time playing. Last night we went for a quick trip to the park by our house. Austin loves riding in his car and being pulled in the wagon.
Today I took the kids to the beach. It was so much fun, and time flew by. They both behaved so well, until it was time to go home. Tyler just wanted to stay at the beach, and it was sooooooo unfair that we had to take Austin home for a nap. I think we have a beach bum on our hands!

We are here!

Mike has a crab on his tongue
Austin LOVES Grandpa

We are LOVING San Diego, but HATE moving. Good thing I want to stay here because Iwill never move again. My little heart can only take so much clutter and mess. Everything is great here except the unpacking has not yet commenced. Anyone want to come help? The kids are adjusting. I think Tyler even has accepted that he lives in California. We registered him for kindergarden, and this was so exciting for him. He has made friends with the kids next door, and he looks out the window 50 times a day to see if they are playing in their backyard. The weather has been fantastic and I can't say i'm missing IL weather. We do miss our friends, and think of them often. Although, Tyler wins the contest for missing his friends the most!

Our first week here Mike's grandpa's wife passed away in LA. We had a lot of unexpected company and chaos, but it was great to see everyone. I promise next time you visit, a much cleaner, more organized house! We visited the tide pools with Sam's family and Grandma and Grandpa. The pictures above are the tide pools in La Jolla.
