Lil' Life Group!

This summer our church added a "lil" life group for Trey's age group. They do a Bible story, matching craft, lunch, and then free time. The moms stay so that means there are little siblings around so Boston got to get in on some of the fun too! Todays story was on everyone being unique and that everyone is perfect the way they are:)

Trey among thousands of other kids LOVES LOVES LOVES the movie CARS--so Mark and I thought it would be fun to take him to see the new one in the theater since we have never taken him to a movie--Poppie even met us there too. So we gave Boston to MiMi and headed to Harkins--he was SOOOO excited! He sat the whole time in his own chair. Of course we had to stop and get ice cream after too just because I think Trey was having so much fun with us one on one!
*Trey LOVED the movie of course but if you are one of those parents who doesn't like violence this is not the movie for you lol there are tons of machine guns, guns, & bombs--it has a secret agent twist to it--this caught me off guard at first just because the other one was nothing like that.
Waiting for the movie to start...
He doesn't get sweets much so he was VERY excited lol

Father's Day!

Our day started off with Trey helping me make a little breakfast so we could go deliver it to Mark in bed--but then Mark got up earlier than normal so we ate it normally lol. Then we gave him his Father's Day presents. Can you tell who picked out the gift bag? Then we went to church and to Chompies for lunch. Then it was nap time for all... Then we had dinner and swimming at The Smith's with everyone!!! 21 lobsters I believe is what it took to feed all of us lol--and they were delish!!! The boys are so lucky to have such a awesome DAD & 2 active grandfathers in their lives!!
Stirring the waffle batter
Of course Boston wanted to see what was going on

Summer Days...

Here a few different days of playing outside in the water... The boys and I usually go out and play with the splash pad in the mornings. One day this week Rylie came over and played all day while her mom and dad went to work--it was so weird to have a girl in the house lol!!! Trey was so gentle and kept calling her baby girl lol. I even painted her toenails during lunch lol!! I couldn't resist!!

Take note of the WWF moment about to happen...

Miss Rylie with the boys

Even Boston likes to jump into the pool now too

Mark's Birthday Weekend--Day 3

Again we got to sleep in which was good because we were out late lol!!! We sat in the lounge area of the hotel and had coffee and did major people watching! Then is was off to do some shopping (oh the shopping is amazing there) before we left.

The trip was beyond fun and I can not wait to go away again after a little while lol. I loved the one on one time with Mark!! 3 whole days & 2 nights was the perfect amount of time to be away from the boys--any longer and I think it would start to consume me that I missed them too much. I was getting a little nervous leaving them the night before so much so that I went and brought Trey in bed with us just so I could snuggle with him. (I would have brought Bos too except he HATES sleeping anywhere but alone in his crib) So thank you so much to our parents for taking the boys--it was so nice not worrying about them and knowing they were happy and safe!!!!!! Now I just wonder if we are allowed to have another and they will still let us leave on little trips lol???

*Thank you Arie and Shayla for babying us on the flights and for flying us!!!

Mark's Birthday Weekend--Day 2!

Today we had the pleasure of SLEEPING IN and not worrying about dressing, feeding, or changing anyone lol--it was AWESOME and weird lol!! Even though I could have laid there all day I could not wait to go get breakfast at one of the cute places we had seen the day before (if you have not noticed our trip revolved around food & drinks lol) so we went to some coffee shop I can't remember the name. Then we headed over to The Golden Gate bridge and walked about a quarter of it. It really is unreal to be on and to look at. Then we headed back towards the wharf and grabbed lunch and hit up 2 different bakeries so I could try cupcakes at both:) Then we walked Fishermans Wharf for a couple hours.

"the crookedest road"

Alcatraz from the bridge

This was at Kara's Cupcakes--I had a S'mores one and it was pretty good, but my coconut cupcake from Susie Cakes was unbelievable!!!!!
Crazy trolly ride--like really you HAVE to hold on or you will fall and I could not stop thinking about all the germs when I was holding on lol
We ended (by end I mean starting out the evening lol) our day with dinner at Franciscan Crab House then we were off to our night time tour of Alcatraz!!! Dinner was delish, but how could it not be at a seafood place on the ocean. It was so nice and beautiful on the boat out to Alcatraz. We got to see the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset from the water on the way there and then got to see it all lit up on the boat ride back. I LOVED the Alcatraz tour sooooo much--I have this weird obsession with prisons and jails lol. So I was totally fine with 2 hour tour! Honestly it was pretty crazy to think you were standing and looking at things that these insane prisoners stood and looked at. Once we got off the boat you walked up this insane hill that the prisoners walked up (only they had a 20 lb.ball and chain to drag with them) We got to go in their cafeteria and the solitary confinement area too, but I didn't get pics of those...
Who doesn't love when crab is order for 4 and put in one HUGE pile lol??

These are where the prison guards and their families lived...what wife would do that lol?? Like the kids park was just outside the prisons walls...
Their Showers
I can not remember whose cell we were in front of...
Some of the cells still had their original toilets

This was down in their "yard"

We kind of got grossed out after this picture when we realized we touched the bars lol they had probably touched and leaned their heads on--YUCK!!!
This was the exact table and light where surgeries were done--the medical staff left in the evening to go home across the water so say your appendix burst in the middle of the night--you were screwed--like they didn't call anyone you had to wait ti the morning lol
X-ray table--notice all the LEAD paint that's chipping off the walls lol they asked us not to eat it

View form the boat when we left
*They would open and close the prison doors so you could hear it exactly how they heard it--it was creepy!!!
