Time to catch up....

Time has gone, and now its time to post a few fun events that have happened over April, May and June. Time is passing, school is ending, and summer is beginning. Let's celebrate the summer and remember the last few months. 

In April...

We celebrated Easter with our wonderful friends The Williams. We had a wonderful lunch, Easter egg hunt, and enjoyed every minute celebrating the special holiday with our friends. 

Jason and I opened our new home for a few special gatherings in the month of April. We held a beautiful shower for my close friend Melanee who was expecting their sweet baby girl Ziara. A few weeks later, we celebrated Jason's sister Jillian and had amazing bridal shower. Both showers turned out lovely and we felt over-joyed that we have a home where we can bless others. 


Mother's Day was so special this year. It began with Laylie's preschool hosting a sweet Mother's Day Tea where Laylie made an adorable place-mat, a plate, and a necklace. With her class they sang two songs to all the moms and I must say there wasn't a dry eye in the house as we watched our adorable children sing about their moms and growing up. It really was a complete joy that day to be with Laylie and I am so thankful I am her mama. 

Following that, Mother's Day morning I woke up to breakfast in bed with my two angels; we took a coaster train ride to Old Town in San Diego; and I spent the gorgeous day with my little family. The best Mother's Day!

Laylie was blessed with another special and wonderful date outing with Uncle Tim and Auntie Lindsay. They rode the Coaster to San Diego where they played at a new park and toured a pirate ship. She had the time of her life and absolutely loved her one-on-one time with her incredible auntie and uncle.  

Jason's sister Jillian and her fiance Steve got married on the Queen Mary in Long Beach. They had the most amazing and beautiful wedding on the ship where the day could have not been more beautiful. I have never seen a more beaming and stunning bride, and she took everyone's breath away. Jason had the honor of performing the ceremony for his sister and new brother and did a fantastic job. Jillian and Steve's children where in their wedding and it really was a magical and unforgettable day. We had a blast celebrating and watching their lives begin together as family. 

Now June....

Our two little girls can spend hours playing together and being the sweetest sisters. Laylie is the greatest big sister to Rael and loves to take care of her little sister. It's so fun to see their relationship becoming so tight.

Rael: She is such the cutest little girl. She is talking up a storm and says the funniest things. She has a special bond with her daddy and loves to snuggle. She still has a passionate heart for animals. She is a non-stop mover and truly enjoys life to the fullest. She had her first dentist visit and did such a fantastic job and kept saying, "my turn" when Laylie was getting her teeth cleaned first. 
Rael's favorite activities are: playing doctor, and playing with baby dolls. 

Laylie is starting to learn how to do everything on her own. She is growing up so fast and is a complete joy. She has a sweet, tender and sensitive heart. She is a big helper around the house or if anyone needs a hand. She is awesome at riding her two-wheel bike and meeting new friends. Laylie went into the water at the beach for the very first time and loved it. She spent hours screaming and jumping through the water. 
Laylie's favorite activities are: dancing, playing dress up, playing board games, making crafts, and building things with legos.
