Fun day with Emma

Well we headed out to go the the Children's museum but it was closed on Wednesday (an over site by mom) but the girl's didn't care... they were out and ready to have fun. So since we were down town already we headed to the shops! Emma was teaching the girls first hand how to find the greatest deals!

Emma had to stay quick on her toes... Lola was in a mood to run (especially after the frozen yogurt they enjoyed just minutes before).
These are the coolest toys... the girls just stand on them and they spin (they were located at this modern park downtown) They made the girls a bit dizzy but they couldn't get enough of them!

on a side note.....
Ellie has a new favorite summer food!
Lola won't even try the corn... she sticks to her pears!

Escaping June Gloom

San Diego has a predictable weather pattern called "June Gloom" where the Marine layer last all day long. Therefore the sun has been non-existent. So we headed north-east to the Wild Animal Park where the sun was in full force. The girls were happy to be out and about!
They got to pet "doggies" again!
... then on our walk around the park we stumbled onto this little playground with animal water sprinklers... of course we had to let the girl run wild! It was soooo much fun to watch them figure this out and get all wet. I think this water experience was their favorite yet!

They're soaked and loving it!

" Uh-oh now we have no pants mom!"

Trained well!

We have trained the girls to clean up after themselves, good thing because I would be scrubbing the floor all day long without their help!

p.s. are their labor laws against this kind of stuff? :)

Just a cute picture of daddy and his girls!

Sharing our winnings!

Well... we had to share some of our winnings with the we took them to Toys R Us yesterday! This among a few other things is what we found for them. They absolutely love this splash table! It occupied these twins for almost an hour straight.
Definitely a must have for the summer!

They were soaked at the end of the hour... but man did they have fun, so many giggles!

Home Sweet Home!

We had a great time in Vegas... Yes, we missed the girls but we took advantage of every second we had to relax and enjoy each other. Happy Birthday Tony!

We had a great view of the strip!

I never let Tony forget it was his "Over the Hill Birthday" by decorating our room!

And we came away winners! Vegas paid us to vacation there... that is always NICE!

Fun in the Tub!

My girls turn into crazy ladies in the bath tub. they absolutely love bath time! The splash each other, pretend to wash each other's hair, and they love to play with all the bubbles. this time mom was joining in on all the fun and making crazy hair styles with the shampoo. The girls seemed to like that too! They are so fun!

New Member!

Well... I guess you can refer to it as a mommy and me group, but we were all friends before we had kids... the group keeps growing. Our newest addition is Joseph Thomas (the little baby all bundled up). The other night we all got together to celebrate Kathleen's birthday. It's always fun to take time to get together despite our busy schedules!!!

School's out for the summer....

Today was my last official day of teaching! Now I am off for 2 and a half months. I have never been more excited to be off on summer break. I am so looking forward to this summer. We have so many fun things planned, but I think I am most looking forward to just hanging with the girls.
But to start off the summer Tony and I are headed off to VEGAS without the little munchkins.... this will be the first weekend away without the girls, we are very excited to lounge by the pool, stay up late, and sleep in- Thank you Emma and Good Luck :). Next I am taking the girls on their first camping trip. We are going with grandma and poppi in Northern California... that should be a fun adventure! We have beach days and a summer luau with friends planned, as well as many days at the zoo, wild animal park, and children's museum. I am afraid this summer will fly bye, but not will out some great memories.
Cheers to a Great Summer Ahead!

Don't be fooled..

Yes this is a pool toy... but it is now one of the girl's favorite indoor toys...Go figure?
It's so cute to watch them play together in this "raft'

Furry Friends!

After work Tony and I took the girls for a walk in the zoo. We had to stop off at the petting zoo just for a minute. Ellie loved it, she made many friends at the petting zoo, that she referred too as "Doggies" Lola just kinda liked the animals, she loved running around in all the dirt much more!

Ellie made many friends... she even liked to give them hugs!

Yes... this in one of the multiple mud pits that greeted us at the end of the race.
AFTER... we made it!

Just a little bit muddy!

A much needed drink after completing the 6.2 mile obstacle course in 1hour 25min.
We had our own set of cheerleaders... Thanks Missi and Aiden for greeting us at the end!
