favoriteTHINGS Friday

I love these beautiful flowers!
They are tall, vibrant and have gorgeous colors!

They always bloom in summer at nana & papa’s house…reaching tall to try and touch the sun. I love their crepe paper like petals…they just make my heart smile!
I hope they make your heart smile today!

Easter 2013

 We just got back from a quick Easter weekend up in Northern California with Aaron’s family. It was so great to catch up with everyone and see our sweet nephews. The only bummer was that our brother-in-law could not make it. Yummy food. Cute kids. Bubbles. Tea Parties. Visits with friends. Dancing Easter Bunnies. Egg Dying. Candy.
Fun was had by all.
 Nana picked out cute outfits for all the kids. They looked like little catalog models!
 We call Grant Dapper Dan when he looks all handsome like this!
Sweet Little Lady Paigey!
After we got the kids dressed in their fun outfits we walked to the old courthouse across the street and tried to get pictures of all 4 kids…well…maybe next time!
Then we went back to the house for a tea party!
Nature girl!
 We were able to get a few cute pics with Nana & Papa!
Our tea party was AMAZING! More on this soon!
One of the things that yielded the most fun was an hour of bubble mania while Shannon & I cooked for the tea party! Never underestimate the power of bubbles to entertain children!
I hope you had a fun and relaxing Easter weekend with your family!

walking in a winterWONDERLAND

At the beginning of December we made a trek up North to Nana & Papa’s house for what’s becoming quite the tradition::to cut down our own Christmas tree! We got up into the mountains just far enough to play in the snow, make a snowman, toss around some snowballs and cut down our cute little tree. Once again, fun was had by all!
…fun with Nana & Papa…
…we got a small, thin tree this year (it really shows off the ornaments) but we have chopped down huge ones in the past…
…my manly guy uses an axe like it’s no big deal and makes it look so easy…
…poor guy got snow in his boots the minute he stepped out of the truck…
…Grant liked the snow but was pretty cold & whiny most of the time…
…Paigey LOVED the snow…
 …even in the snow a girl can look cute, right?…
…every time the snowman changed she wanted to pose next to him…
…thanks Nana, Papa and Mr. Snowman…
{hope to see you again next year}

a quick trip to {sacramento}

During the Memorial Day weekend we got to hang with Nana & Papa in Sacramento for a quick and fun trip!  The highlight was hanging out at The California State RAILROAD MUSEUM…although walking around the grounds of the State Capital and Old Town were fun too! We ate at two great restaurants. The first night we had some incredible Mediterranean cuisine at the mouth watering Luca. I would go back again in a heartbeat. The second night we devoured our food at the delicious Thai Basil Cafe. There were some good options for kids and a wonderful variety of Thai dishes. This travelBUG was a happy girl!

My family lived in Durango, Colorado when we were little and this cool train hat was my little Brother’s. Some of our fondest memories are going on the Durango-Silverton Train. So fun to have this little hat to remember those days!
If you have not made it to the Train Museum I recommend you check it out.  It’s filled with history, enormous trains and some great miniature toy train displays as well.  Fun for old and young.
All I know is that we loved the trains, Nana & Papa and the fun of being in our State Capital!
