Visit With The Lenzers and Brown Eyed Girls' Fam

***Please ignore the random spacing and lack of fluidity in this post today.  I'm about to punk kick my laptop through the front window because I'm so frustrated.  Thanks!

Spring Break 2011.

It's been a doozy and we're only a few days in!

Jann from The Lenzers brought her family in town Saturday night for dinner. They vacationed in La Jolla and then up to Anaheim for Disneyland. It was so fun to see her again and meet her precious boys. Jann and I worked together at Michaels years ago. I was pregnant with Jack and she with Connor. Happy we've stayed in touch! Carter got a good picture of us after several tries.
Most of the others looked like this.
Punkin Christian.

Christian is a multi-tasker. Cruising in the cozy coupe and playing in the water table.
And, then he tried to go in.

Lainey took the boys on a snail hunt later that evening.

Fast forward to Tuesday. After unsuccessfully meeting up on Monday (code for my kids were being mega brats, so we went home), we finally united with the group at California Adventure. Love this picture of Lainey and Jann. Think she liked the swings?
Finally found the Brown Eyed Girls' Mom and got to meet her cute kiddos. This is Bia. She doesn't like Disneyland or California Adventure. There might be a future there for Jack and Bia. It would be a marriage of grumps!  
Love these women. Isn't blogging fun? I met the Brown Eyed Girls' Mom randomly and then we realized that we had a connection......Jann......her friend. Small world.
Couldn't believe we got a good picture of the group! That's Chatty at the top. I failed to get more pictures of her. She's a great kid. Exactly as I expected her to be.

Off to the zoo today. Carter seems less than thrilled. I keep chanting "Spring Break Twenty Eleven", baby!!!!!" to get him excited.

Seems counter-productive right now. But, it is bugging him.

So, I'll keep at it.

Love your commentary on Sophia! Too funny. Nice cropping skills ... I seriously think we need to plan a girls trip. PS - You could have posted our names!

Well, I didn't want to just in case. This makes you even more mysterious, yes?

I'm seriously sad I didn't get more pictures of Chatty. I LOVE her. Such a great kid.

I'm in for a girls trip!! Love the picture of Lainey on the swings!That's a framer!

The Lenzers said...

LOVE!!!! I still can't believe you get 2 weeks for spring break! you are totally gonna need a vacation after that, like i need one today! ggrrrr

donatelli98 said...

OK - so far it's mysterious me, Dee, Casey and Jann ... and others for a girls trip? Since you think Chatty's so great, can I send her to San Diego for a few weeks this summer???

Sara said...

Yay - girls trip!!! Please wait until after July. K? Thanks. I need to be able to partake in adult beverages with you girls.

So happy that y'all got to meet up and play!!

And I'm LOVING your hair, Case. Absolutely darling.

Are you finished entertaining now?? Can we catch up? Missing you!

The Soladay Family said...

I still can't get over that we speak multiple times aa week and have never met. Weird.Ryan is trying figure out a way to fit in a trip to Cali this summer so we can finally meet!

So much fun that you ladies got together! Jealous. =)

Allyson and Dave said...

How fun!! I still have never met a day.

donatelli98 said...

Yes Sarah - definitely after July!

Brittny said...

So fun!!!! I'm really hoping that I can meet up with you when you visit Destin, but right now that overlaps with when Brandon leaves. I'm not going to hope he leaves early just so I can see you, because then what kind of wife would I be!?!?!?! And I promised the kids we'd head up to Nashville to visit their cousins as soon as Daddy leaves. We will meet one day!! Until then, have fun meeting everyone else!! : )

WOW! What a small world it truly is! Miss seeing your adorable kids! Looks like a fun time was had by all. Especially Lainey.
