Go Yankees!

Ty started his t-ball this week, he was SO adorable! His team is the Yankees (calm down Red Sox fans!) so we had to invest in some Yankee-wear. He was hesitant at first (as usual) but really enjoyed it. His friends Jake and Owen are on the team too so it made it a little easier. This will definitely be something new for us, considering neither one of us did baseball when we were young. (Although Grandpa Dave & Uncle Kyle are VERY excited!) It should be fun watching the tiny "T's" trying to hit the ball and run. You'll be seeing more later...

Valentine's Day... without Daddy :(

With Matt working this Valentine's Day, I decided I would come up with some fun stuff to do with the kids. (Not that we do anything major, anyways!) So, I decided to surprise Matt and made cupcakes (see bsweetcakes for pix :) to take to the fire station. We had never been to his new station so it was a good excuse to make a trip down there.

He gave us a tour of the station, as well as "his" engine.
The kids always have fun looking around.

Matt got to take us for a ride around the block.. thank goodness he didn't get any
calls while we were out!

After our outing, I decided I was too tired to do anything for dinner. We stopped by Lascari's and got some pizza dough and sauce (super cheap!) and made ourselves some heart shaped pizzas. The kids really got a kick out of that...

Then I let Camryn go to town and decorate an extra cake I had. I think she used up a whole container of sprinkles, but she loved it & was so proud of her cake!

All in all it was a fun day, better than I thought it would be!! I just love Valentine's Day!!

Boredom Bliss

So I decided to surprise Matt this weekend with a night away in Newport Beach. I think I needed it more than him, but oh well! He was surprised and we had a really good time. We stayed at a really great Marriott near the bay, with super nice rooms that had recently been re-done. We felt like we were royalty! We had fun just eating out by ourselves and walking around shopping. Boring, I know, but nice for a change.
I realized that we were close to a Sprinkles Cupcakes, and considering we had never indulged in the novelty, I dragged Matt along for a taste. I felt like a little kid at his first trip to Disneyland!

The stylish bag and box that come along with the $3.25 cupcake price.

We decided on the Peanut Butter Chip and Chocolate Coconut flavors- which we shared of course! The only thing missing was some milk! Definitely one of the best cupcakes I've ever eaten!

While walking around at Fashion Island, we came upon this kids clothing store called "Peek... aren't you curious?". It not only had adorable (but pricy) kids clothes, but some of the cutest quotes plastered around the walls of the store! Matt and I had fun just reading all of the quotes, including the one outside that lured us in:
Isn't that the truth...

Blocks and Boo-boos

Here is my future engineer/architect boy! He absolutely LOVES his legos, and along with his Star Wars toys, enjoys playing with them every day. I can't remember exactly what he told me this particular creation was (usually it's a space ship or something) but he was extremely proud of it! Makes me so proud of him. He has such a great imagination!

Here's the little "boo-boo" (literally) after he took a tumble down the steps at my mom's house. Poor thing, his nose looked twice as big as normal! I guess this won't be the last time with a kiddo that's walking wobbly everywhere!

Girly Girls

This is my big girl, proving to me that she is still my little girl. Her friend Kailey came over and they had a tea party in the back yard- complete with juice, cheeze-its and teddy graham crackers. It just reminded me of when I was little, so free and full of imagination!!
