tide pools....

after church today we went down to the tide pools out by aliso creek beach.

the boys were hesitant about going at first, cause they wanted to stay home and play "guys" (aka: marvel characters). which by the way, they play EVERY DAY!!

finally, after much probing by their mom they reluctantly got into the car. and of course once we got there they had a great time. they loved the tide pools and all the creatures they could discover.

we found a huge starfish, discovered a cave, and enjoyed putting our fingers in the little sea anenomenes.

the water was crystal clear blue, and the air was warm. the boys were bummed that i didn't bring their trunks. and guess what? they were sad when we had to leave.

GNO santa barbara 2008.....

this weekend i went up to santa barbara for a girl's weekend with some of my best friends. most of us have been friends since we were 12 and a couple of us have even been friends since we were 7. our dear friend caitlin hosted 10 girls for a gno weekend at her beautiful house in santa barbara.

(caitlin, anita, sheryl, vern, shannon, salley, gina, keri, me, katie, and nat)
we left friday morning and arrived to some beautiful warm weather. we brought our bikes so we all took a bike ride downtown.

on saturday we woke up to home made waffles and berries, and then headed to the san ynez valley to go wine tasting. it felt like we were in a foreign country it was so pretty.

saturday night we went out to dinner and then to a club to get our dance on :)

sunday we went to a great breakfast where i got the most amazing french toast. i had to take a picture of it just so i could show you how great it was.

thank you to caitlin for hosting a great gno weekend. and thanks to all my girl's for all of our year's together. i love you :)

train, lunch, and a petting zoo....

last week we had isaiah's spring break. my mom was off too, so we decided it would be fun to take the train down to san juan capistrano.

we boarded the metrolink in orange and took it south. the boys had not been on a train since hayden was a tiny baby so they thought it was pretty cool.

once we got to san juan we ate lunch at ruby's. then we headed to the little petting zoo. the boys loved all the animals. they especially loved the bunnies and feeding them carrots.

it was a beautiful fun filled day. i will definately do it again.
