Tiny Blankey

Grant woke up this morning and threw "Tiny Blankey" in the garbage. Ben and I thought he was joking but when he never went back and got it or talked about it we knew he was being serious. He told us that he wanted to be big and that tiny blankey was to stinky for him so he wanted it to be in the garbage, and never made mention of it again.
To Grant: I am so proud of you, that was such a big boy decision made all on your own, you are growing up so fast.
To tiny blankey: you will not be missed you were always so smelly. Thanks for helping Grant grow up!

(of course I did have some tears in my eyes)

blue whales

one of the most amazing things about living here is that we get to see some of the most incredible things! Its a good reminder of why it costs so much to live here because there really isn't anything like it!

Ben and I took the boys out to see the blue whales... Technically it isn't whale season but since it has been such a cold summer the Blue Whales have migrated to our coast because of the amount of fish that are here. The boat captain said that they haven't seen this many whales in this coast for 50 years they said they have spotted up to 50-60 just on our coast alone. It really is an amazing once in a lifetime things to see!

Labor day hiking trip

We went hiking up Malibu Creek canyon, it was so nice to be outdoors and getting some good exercise. It was really really hot there as you will see in the progression of the pictures everyones faces get redder and redder as the trip goes on. The boys were troopers and we had a great time!!!

I was there.... no one ever takes my picture so I thought I better throw this one in there in case any of you were wondering where I was.

Getting hot... and maybe a little delirious

Really hot now
And REALLY DELIRIOUS!!! thanks boys for being such great sports! We love you!

1st GRader

This is my baby Jackson... who isn't a baby any longer:( He went off to first grade and never looked back. I told him once you go to first grade you may as well be married with kids and be well into your career because thats how fast time goes. He just laughed and thought I was saying one of those crazy things that mom's say, he's probably right, but that doesn't mean I don't miss him like crazy while he is gone.

yes I cried. Ben got proof.
