So this week was short because of the holiday (MLK) celebrated on Monday, kinda nice to be honest. Friday was Sarah's birthday she turned 36 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow, I think she is catching up to me... We celebrated with the kids and had strawberry cheese cake... For whatever reason I though Sarah loved cheese cake only to find out Angel food cake with strawberries is her favorite, now I know!!!!
Mada left Friday morning to fly back to Utah to see her Dad. She will be gone all weekend including Monday. She is THRILLED to get both Friday and Monday off!!!
Max and Zoe are just two crazy kids who could not be any happier. What a great age to be, not a care in the world and the worst thing to happen to them is to have to go to bed.
We ended up riding bikes to the park. Max is cruising along very slowly on his Strider balance bike and Zoe is literally flying around on her Razor. She still has not figured out how to coast/balance on it but she will.
Monday was glorious outside around 80 degrees so we picked up Mada, her best friend Allison and we all headed to the beach. Zoe and Max now know there way around and seem to be really comfortable at the beach. While it is 80 degrees outside the water is still very cold but that did not stop the kids. Mada was out in the water the majority of the time and max literally fell into a wave seconds after arriving. Zoe was a little more cautious but eventually ended up wet too. We invited the girls to join us on a walk but they politely decline so we left Mada and Allison alone and we took the kids on down the beach.
Sarah was showing Zoe how to draw in the sand...
Sarah wrote, "I heart (love) Jamie" and "Jamie + Sarah"
On Saturday Zoe and I went grocery shopping while Mama relaxed in the tub and Max took a nap. I took a few pic's of Zoe in one of her favorite outfit!! It's a shame that she is so shy around the camera!!
This is what I'm thinking... It's raining and cool outside but I think we should grab umbrella's and go take a long walk on the beach. It will be good to get out of the house and I love these types of days maybe the kids will enjoy them as well?!?!?!!? Also if the wind is blowing we can bust out the kites, it will be PERFECT!!! This is my plan in my head.........
We are back from the beach and it did not go as I envisioned it. As expected the beach was empty, and for me it's a gorgeous day with waves 6-7 feet high, wind howling perfect for kites. We found a large round hole which was perfect to lay blankets in and protect us a little from the elements. However Zoe did not want to fly kites and Max was too cold to do anything. We tried to take a walk but it just was not working out so we decided to gather our things and head home to watch Disney's "Rescuer's Down Under" before heading to church.
As usual we miss and love you all very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
