First day of second grade

Lola and Ellie are officially Second graders. This summer was the shortest summer to date, which made the start of school feel less like a big deal... but WAIT I have two second graders... so YES it is a big deal!!! They are almost half way through their time at Silver Gate with me and I simply can't believe it! 
I love their teachers this year!! Yes teachers, they are in a job share classroom with two of my favorite teachers on campus. Not only are they spectacular teachers they are my good friends. I know Ellie and Lola will have a fantastic year. To top is off- their classroom is only three doors down from me! 

First day of school poses... The girls picked their own outfits and ended matching! 
Go Figure! Love them! 

At Silver Gate new cement was being laid right by their classroom,  and their new second grade teacher carved their initials into the cement- too cool! 

 My and the girls on the first day... yes those are flip flops I am wearing. 
Our morning was a bit hectic that I forgot to put on my school shoes.... whoops!

 Mrs. Nazarian greeting the girls! 

Okay so, mom fail, I didn't do the traditional first day photos with the signs and all on day... so these are technically second day photos, but they will have to do!  

Congrats Lola and Ellie for making it though the first few days like champs! 
Here's to a fantastic second grade year!!

Daughter Dates

Our traditional summer DATES with our girls 
{I laid low with the pictures- to be extremely present}

Daddy and Ellie spent the day at the ball park for their daddy daughter date. Ellie decided early in the summer that she wanted to go to a Padre Game with just her and her daddy. I'm sorry but these two are the cutest EVER. They are like two peas in pod. Eliie is a true daddy's girl! She even insisted on wearing daddy's Pardre shirt to the game! 

 {and they are off- they had blast, Ellie reports}

 While Daddy and Ellie were at the game I got Lola all to myself for our "mommy date." Now we all know Lola, she had a list of things she wanted to do on our date and she waisted no time crossing them off. The list: The Hot Pot to make a candle, The Habit for dinner, Old Navy for school cloths shopping, and a stroll around Dixie line and West Elm. Gotta love this girl! 

The next day was Lola's turn with her daddy. She picked to go see a movie "The Secret Life of Pets" Lola was really excited to take just her daddy to the movies and then dinner after. She even sweet talked her daddy into buying her some treats from Japettos the Toy Store  Lola loved her evening. 

While Lola and Daddy were out, Ellie and I got the whole day together. We too went to see a movie "Pete's Dragon." The best thing was that we had the whole theatre to ourselves. As the movie ended  we danced in the theater to music of the credits. Ellie was in heaven. We then headed to Sushi for dinner and to Old Navy for some back to school shopping. 

The girls look so forward to these dates, it really warms Tony and my hearts. 
Love them- they are two pretty cool girls!

 More fun in the pool this time with Grandma.

Tidepooling. OMG- we had such a great day!
We spents hours there and teh girls explored and explored.

The girls asked me to pose... they are really into taking photos these days.

Soaking up every last minute of summer with all the salt water we can get.

 It was work time for me but not the girls, they kept their summer going with a sleep over at a morning and afternoon at Kellogg beach with Ella.
