Happy Days

We have had some fun adventures the last few weeks:

My best friend Courtney since 6th grade and Rael's best buddy turned #1. We had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday and watching little Hensley grow all year long. We love her to pieces! 

 Laylie is still dancing every Friday morning and is practicing hard on her dance routine. She is getting very excited about her recital in June and she looks darling in her Apple Blossom Fairy dress that she will be wearing on stage. 

We took Laylie on a special date night where we ate Mac & Cheese at Noodles and Co., had frozen yogurt at Swirls and we even got to watch our God-daughter, Cladee be in a Mulian play. Cladee did such an amazing job as the Grandmother. We loved watching her and cheering her on. 

We now have seasons passes to Seaworld and we have been going all the time with our friends and cousins. Rael loves crawling in the toddler play area and even Laylie does too. 

Here is Laylie last week....

And here she is on the same blue play area in the same spot at 9 months. 
She is growing up too fast!! 

We love our life, doing fun things and enjoying our days with loved ones. Thanks for always being on the journey with us.
Happy days are the best!! 

Mama's Day 2013

Mothers Day was a complete joy!! 
The day started off with snuggles in bed with my girls, where they gave me sweet handmade cards and gifts. I was treated to a waffle breakfast in our large king bed, which I happily shared with everyone.  After we finished our breakfast, we planned out a fun Mother's Day together. I wanted to spend the whole day soaking up my two precious gifts, and I really enjoyed being a mama to them each and every second that went by on this Mother's Day Sunday. After we got ready for the day, we packed our small cooler full of yummy snacks, food, and water and headed out. Our first stop was Feather Acres in Del Mar, where there were over 40 animals to interact with, everything from huge horses to small bunny rabbits. The family that owns it gives you a big bag of treats to feed to any animal of your choice, and also lets you pet all the animals. 

They even give you pony rides both inside a ring and out on a nature trail. Laylie loved it and Rael could not stop waving her hands and barking at all of the animals. She was in animal heaven. It was so much fun to spend a sunny day enjoying my girls and having them just beam with delight. 

We then made our way down the street to San Dieguito Park to have a picnic on the grass, play baseball, and try out all of their different playgrounds they have on their property. It was extremely fun and by 1:00 we were ready for water, shade, and naps. 

After naps we headed to my parents' house to celebrate with more family: G.G., my mom, and sisters.
I could not have had a better day. Words cannot express how much I love and how I feel so so so blessed to be a mama. Truly, the best gift ever!!! Happy Mothers Day to all the mamas!
