Last week's share day included the letter K. Guess what starts with K, people?
It was a big day. We passed on the UHaul to transfer every one of her kitties, kitty-themed pieces of clothing, kitty books and such......and filled a bag instead. I'm all about subtly, you know. She's holding Jelly Cat here and Mistletoe Kitty, too. Lots more inside.
Jack brought a train "kit". Impressive.
I took the kids to the beach Friday night to watch the sunset. Beautiful weather & and beautiful night.
Love this kid.
This one, too. Oh, hell, I love all 3 of them.
This one is the craziest, though. By far.
Smoochin' on Jack. My hair looks red!
We ended the evening with Laine pulling a "Tessie Mayes" and going a-naturale. Time to go!
The princess party was a hit. Preschool friends and awesome cake. It was very "bippity boppity boo!", so Lainey arrived in princess gear and Jack, as a prince.
Know what's pretty cool about a party in California? We picked oranges from their citrus trees on the way out. They were delicious!
Holly and I took the kids to La Jolla for the day on Monday. We split picnic preparations. Here is what my part of the contributions looks like. PB&J for 7!
We love the Birch Aquarium. It's just small enough to get in and out within about an hour.
Hold it right there, Laine. Nicholas had a poopy diaper, but it wasn't that bad. Yes, we kept him in it to (successfully, I might add) clear a path for the kids to walk freely, but it wasn't reason enough to jump.
What's cuter about this picture? Sweet Austin looking at the sea star or Ainsley's chubbo baby leg?
6 of the crew!
It's a small miracle we didn't get kicked out.
When I told Mae Mae we were going, she said, "I'd see you guys coming and run in the other direction." Hmmmm......
After the aquarium, we ventured down to La Jolla Cove.
Holly + her 4 kiddos.
Me + my 3. What? You don't usually have a 3 year old strapped to you while holding your 4 year old?
Holly's oldest is 5 and youngest is 5 months. She's a busy mama.
Lovely La Jolla.
Punks on the beach. Trying for a Valentine shot since they were all in gear. FAIL.
Football playing punkin'.
Back to Holly's for dinner. Love their view.
Another glorious sunset!
