California Here We Come

This year I’ve vowed to more carefully document our family doings via photo. Taking pictures is my specialty after all. (Ironic then that I always seem to forget the camera at all the wrong times.) Here’s your proof that I’m trying my darndest.



Two weekends ago we made a quick trip to California sans baby. I was so bummed not to bring her, but I’m not kidding when I say the trip was quick. We made it to Costa Mesa late Friday night and kicked off our getaway with an obligatory stop here. Scott’s convinced that it tastes better in Cali.



Saturday morning we headed out to see the Newport Beach temple.



It was a gorgeous day and the grounds were just lovely. What a perfect time of year for a visit. We couldn’t believe how empty it seemed even on a Saturday though. Definitely a change from our Mesa scene.

Naturally Scott played on his phone while I snapped a few.




I don't think spring has ever looked so beautiful.


I just love new blooms.




I have WAY too many pictures of this face.


These 3 are SOOC images:


He’s (more than) slightly obsessed.




Next time I hope we’ll do a session and see if it's as stunning on the inside as it is on the outside.

Check out the main event of our trip HERE.
More to come of course!

My Favorite Animal is Poopies








Are you sold yet? Too bad this pooch is not for sale. She's one of a few reasons why I love coming home each day. Her excitement at my return in the evening is the likes of which you've never seen. My daily greeting includes running, jumping, some serious tail-wagging, not to mention barking, jumping, and some more tail-wagging. It's probably a ridiculous sight, but it makes me feel like a million bucks. Last week we took Eva and Penny to my mom's since she was home for spring break. Scott picked them up on his way home, so when I'd beat him home it was the weirdest thing to find total peace and quiet instead of the furry little nutjob that I'm used to being mauled by. I'm glad she's back to building my celebrity status.

Happy St. Patty's

Baby Steps


Oy it's been a while. I get so behind on updating that I just don't post at all. Amazing logic I know right? Anyway, I have lots of pictures to share from our secret trip to Cali, but the latest news is that miss Eva is getting dangerously close to walking on her own. She still insists on having a little help (see video below), but I'm sure she'll be off in no time at all. Can't say that I'm particularly happy about this. They really do grow up far too quickly.
