San Diego

We went to San Diego for the weekend. I forgot to take my camera, so there will be no pictures (which I am very bummed about). We got there Friday evening, which was later than I wanted to get there, but what can you do? We went to Old Town and walked around a little bit. And then we ate at Cafe Coyote (I think it was called). The food wasn't that great--I was expecting a lot better. We also stopped at the Mormon Battalion museum, and watched a little movie they had there. That was really all we had time for on Friday night.

On Saturday we went to the San Diego zoo. It was fun to go, but really tiring. It has a lot of hills, and by the end of the day I was sore all over. The kids seemed to enjoy it, although Kevin fell asleep about halfway through the day, and wouldn't wake up no matter what we tried. My favorite part was the monkeys/apes, especially the orangutans. There were some baby ones, and they would hold on by wrapping their arms and legs around the mom. It was so cute!

After the zoo, we went to dinner at Applebees, and it was very good. Then we went to the Fashion Valley mall. We didn't have a whole lot of time there, but I got to go to the one store that mattered, Bath and Body Works. I'm really addicted to their stuff, thanks to my friend E, who got me started with the Sweet Pea line, and then it snowballed from there.

Sunday was Kaitlyn's cheerleading competition. Her squad did well, but we're not sure if they placed, because we left early. At 1:30 we realized they weren't even halfway through, and we couldn't stay there until it was done to see the awards, because we still had the long drive back. So we left and headed home. And that was it. When I was planning the trip, I was thinking we'd have time to do a lot more than we did, but it was still a good time. We all came home very tired, though.

Some more Ethan

Here are a few more pictures of Ethan. This one he was in the swing with his hand raised:

And these two were in his jumper, which we tried out for the first time a couple of days ago:

3 months old today!

Ethan is 3 months old today! Time is just flying. He has laughed a few times. The first time he laughed was when Troy was "eating" his stomach, and his whiskers were tickling him. He hasn't rolled over yet, but he's getting close. He usually only tries it when he's on the changing table. He sleeps really good, and is a sweet baby. Hardly ever cries and is really content.

I love my Dad

I've been looking through some pictures that I had on my computer and found this one from last Christmas. It's one of my favorite pictures. It's me and my Dad, and then on his shoulders is Olivia (my niece) and Kevin is in the stroller. It was really cold that night, but it was fun to be out with family. Also, I just like the picture cause it's me and my Dad, and I love him a lot!

Mad and messy

This is an old picture of Kevin, but I just wanted to put it in here cause I love it so much. He was eating chili or taco soup or something like that, and we were taking a picture of him, but he wanted us to get him out, so he was really mad. This is the look he used to have when he was mad at you. Posted by Picasa

Gooooooo Burros

Kaitlyn had her cheer competition last Sunday. They did really well, and got second place, which means we'll be driving down to San Diego the day after Thanksgiving. She really loves cheerleading, and does well. Posted by Picasa

Cloth Diapers

I love cloth diapers! They are just so adorable and fun (not to mention better for the baby and the environment). I can't wait to get the custom diaper I ordered. It's gonna be sooooooo cute. Here's a picture of Ethan with his cute little bubble bum. It's my least favorite color of his diapers, though.

Silly kids

One of Kaitlyn and Kevin's favorite things to do is pretend they crashed their bikes. Well, mostly Kevin, but Kaitlyn plays too. And then they want me to take a picture.

Computers--a tool of the devil

Okay, as much as I like computers, and let's face it, that's a lot, I also hate them. I don't understand viruses, and why anyone would be such a low human being that they'd create them. I also don't understand why someone can't just invent a stinkin computer that will work. We are having all kinds of computer problems, and even after reformatting the computer, we've still got 'em. I want to use my computer, but at the same time I want to stay as far away from it as I can, just to save myself from extreme annoyance. That is why I say they are a tool of the devil.

Cutest baby ever

Okay, you really must agree that Ethan is the cutest baby to ever exist. I don't care if you have your own baby. Deep in your heart, you know he really is the cutest. ;) And as much as you want to just eat him up (I know you want to bite those cheeks), you just can't.

Here are the pictures from Halloween. The kids had fun. We went to the church for a trunk or treat and carnival. Ethan fell asleep for most of the time, so I put him in the mei tai that Mindy made for me. He looked cute in his little bumble bee costume. Kaitlyn was a medieval queen, and Kevin was a knight.

We got Kevin's costume at the Dollar Tree, so it wasn't that great, but it's what he wanted to be, and it's cheap, and we weren't gonna argue with that. After the trunk or treat, we came home and Troy took the kids out around the neighborhood while I stayed home with Ethan. We didn't have a ton of trick or treaters, but there were enough that I was worried I might run out of candy. And now that's all done, and I can't believe it's November already.
