The girls had a great Halloween. Grandma Sherry made the girls costumes and as always they turned out darling. Lilly wanted to be a Butterfly, so we made Paige a Bee. We went to trunk or treat with our church Friday night where the kids scored on Candy, and then went out around our neighborhood on Halloween where the kids got even more Candy. The worst part is there is only one person actually eating all the candy and that's me!!

Beach camping

We did a little Beach camping 2 weeks ago. We went to Carpinteria it's a great little beach down just South of Santa Barbara. Our camp site was pretty much right on the sand. We rented an RV an met the folks out there. Josh got to do a little surfing and the kids loved just going back and forth from our RV to Grandma and Grandpa's RV. We hit a few snags, the wind decided to kick up one day so needless to say we were cleaning sand out of everything including our kids. Also poor little Paigey caught a nasty cold so we had to leave a night early to get her some much needed rest.

The kids would get up and play on the beach in their P.Js

This was our campsite.... as soon as we walk out of the RV this is what we would see.

Paige's Birthday

So the little nugget has turned 2, and I can't believe how fast time goes by with the second. We had a little family Birthday and then had a small party at the park. Some of my favorite things about my little 2 year old Paigey:
Her new favorite word " Disgusting"
Her big blue eyes
Her love for "snacks" what would I do with out them.
Her love for her sister. She has to do everything big sister does including eating vegetables (got to love that)

Digging right in.

She LOVES Elmo!


Well we really didn't have any big vacation plans for the summer so we ended up making a small trip to Vegas last minute with my family. The girls had a great time, we rented a little condo with the fam and they got to spend some time with their cousin who lives there. Josh and I decided to add 2 extra days to the trip and get a room at the Redrock. Great hotel, awesome pool, and fabulous room. We had some time to visit with some more friends and family who also live out there.

High school friends.

A little fun at Chuck E Cheese!!

Can't go to Vegas and not do the M&M factory.
