Winter....or Summer.....??!

Not sure the season, but everyone knows MOMMY and JACOB (and now Jackson) LOVEEEEEE swimming and the SUN!!!!!!  Why not go to the pool or wash the car in February!?!?!?!?  Start getting these white bodies some color!!!

 Just another gorgeous day and thankful for our backyard!!!

 Nutrition before washing the car...

 Mommy's little helpers!

 Pool day!

 Starting Jackson with swim lessons in March...this kid is fearless!  We got to get him swimming!!!

This pic isn't outdoors....but is a boat so I felt it related. =)  Jacob and I made a pirate ship for him to play with in the house....After 2 hours, hopefully it won't get destroyed by little brother!!!

Thursday Play Dates!

For the last couple of months, we have had the opportunity to have play dates with about 4 or 5 other moms and their kids at a different location each Thursday.  Mommy loves to talk with the other moms and Jackson and I love to play with all our friends!  We have gone to the zoo together, multiple parks, Scooters Jungle and this last week we went to Travel Town in Los Angeles!  It's a place that has lots of real trains to climb through!  Here are a few pics from our trip!

 couldn't get one with his eyes open!!!

Jackson and Jacob outside the train

 Jacob and his good bud, Hudson

 Jacob and his new, but fun friends Halle and Will (Jacob has a crush on Halle!)

 Part of the bunch!  Crazy monkeys!!!

 A few more monkeys added....

 Halle and Hudson were on a "date" so Jackson was chaperone. Apparently, she's a catch! =)  A cute catch!

We took a train ride with the group too....Jackson thought it was pretty cool!

We are so thankful for the fun times to hang out with other moms and their kiddos during the week!  I'm grateful for the opportunity to stay home and raise these boys and instill in them the truth of God's Word and just love them.  Thankful for my friends too!!!  Next time, I'll take a pic of the moms. I realize I forgot to do that!!!!

Sneaking out of Bed!

Since we swapped Jackson so a big boy bed about a month ago....he's had plenty of disciplinary action taken against him from sneaking out.  He's our little rebel!  I caught him right in the action one nap time....Hopefully his little sweet but sinful, rebellious heart will one day love Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord!

Santa Barbara

We have had great weather recently so decided to take a Saturday and head to Santa Barbara.  We thought the temperature was supposed to be in the 70's but ended up only in the low 60's....but we had a great time anyways!  Jacob always loves riding the surry bikes when we go there, so we made sure to do that too.  Just had a great family day riding bikes, picnicking, drawing the sand and making sand animals, walking and playing at the park!  Jacob and Jackson apparently still are afraid of the ocean...or things in the ocean...so for now, we won't be hitting the waves. =)  Sand castles instead!  I love my family and Southern California!  Here are some pics at the beach....
