It has been forever since I have been home to Danville.  I finally made a trip out there at the end on June.  It was a great trip and I am so glad that I went.  It was my first time flying by myself with the two kids which is very surprising.  But I am very happy that the next time we fly Chloe will have her own seat.  Let me say that the flight to Honduras was so much easier than the 2 hour flight to Ca.
Anyways, the first thing we did when we arrived was go to In-Out which was fantastic.  Then we drove about 2 hours to spend the night at Liz's house.  It was so good to see Liz and Martha.  It has been forever since I have seen them.  It was actually my first time ever seeing Ruby.  Max and Will had so much fun playing with each other. It was a lot of fun seeing them together.

The boys in their matching outfits.

My kids loved getting a bath in the sink by Nana
It was very hot while we were there so the boys played outside in their skivvies and ran through the sprinklers.  They had a blast.

After we spent some time with Liz and Martha, we went back to Danville to spend time with my mom.  We went to parks, beach, spent the night at Ben and Barbie, SFO, and went to all my favorite eating places.  It was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast while we were there.

Babs bought the kids ice cream after eating pasta and wow they loved it of course.

We went to the beach twice while we were there and it was so nice.  We had beautiful weather both times we were there.

Playing at the neighborhood park by Bab's house.


The 2nd beach trip

Chloe can play in the sand for hours and this is what she does.

Will came with us the 2nd time so Max had someone to play with.

First BART ride ever and Max loved it.  He loved seeing everything outside of the window.

Chloe had fun playing with Bab's mini brush and mirror.

We met Ben at his work and got a little tour of where he works.  Then we met Barbie and the kids and went to Pier 39.

We were trying to get a picture of all 4 kids smiling, but this is the best I got.

All in all it was a great trip.  The kids had fun and we had great weather.  It was so nice to spend time with family and of course eat at some of my favorite places.

Hailey's B-day

In June, Ben and Barbie and the kids came up to Seattle for a visit.  Max and Chloe had so much fun playing with their cousins. I love seeing them have so much fun with family. While they were here, we were able to celebrate Hailey's and Barbie's birthday.  But of course they only pictures that I took while everyone was together was during Hailey's little party. 

Max always makes these funny facial expressions that just make me laugh.  Also, I never got a picture of him actually hitting the pinata, but when he was hitting it he got all serious.  He was just concentrating really hard hitting the pinata, I guess.

Chloe is the complete opposite of Max.  She was laughing and smiling the whole time when she was trying to hit the pinata.

My kids love each other so much.  I am the luckiest mom ever.

I know that it has been a very long time since I last posted.  Life has gotten busy around here and I am trying to get things done before #3 comes along.  One of the many things on my to do list is to update my blog.  I am tying to keep this updated more for myself and family, so we can look back at in the future.
Anways, life is going well.  Max and Chloe are the greatest of friends and I love it.  They love playing with each other even though they will get mad at each other here and there.  Here are some random pictures that I found from past trips to the zoo.  We go to the zoo a lot because it is something that I can do very easily with 2 kids and they jusy love it.
