For Allie's birthday this year we talked to her and decided to not do a kids party...instead we are going to Disneyland and for the first time American Girl!! On her birthday it started with a present from Treysen and a Birthday shirt from us, Then Steve and I took her to PF Changs for lunch (her favorite) and then my parents, Aunt Shannon and cousins Caleb & Jonah and Natalie Devany came over for pizza and cake!! What a fun day!

How is it that our "baby" is 7?? Gosh it does seem like yesterday that I spent 13 LONG weeks on bedrest. So many family, friends and strangers for that matter helped us get through that. From watching Treysen, cleaning our house, making meals or just visiting so I didn't go crazy!! Baby girl you came into this world as a spicy little girl with a mind of her own....7 weeks ealry! We could not be more proud of the girl you are today! You have the biggest heart and are always wanting to help someone in need, cheer someone up who is down and through out a one liner that makes us laugh till were in tears! You are still that sweet, spicy little girl you were in my tummy and we love that most about your personality!! Love you sweet girl... Happy 7th Birthday!!

For those of you who grew up with me you know that my Dad and Mr. Equinoa AKA Uncle Chris to us.. were best friends! (My Dad was the high school principal & Chris was the vice principal) We vacationed with their family, spent holiday's together and countless Super Bowl's together! His daughter Kati, her husband Matt and their twin girls Miranda and Isabella came threw Fresno this week and the kids and I got to spend a couple hours with them! The girls are adorable and my kids loved playing with them. It seems crazy that we both have families and our kids are playing together!!! So glad I was able to see Kati and catch up....can't wait till next time!
WOW....Back to school already! I can't wait to see the kids go through this year! Treysen has Mrs. Wells as does about 10 of his buddies! Allie has Ms. Norsigian and couldn't be happier in her class, she has a friend from last year and I'm sure she'll have many poor soon!!!

The Thomas' and us decided to take the 30 minute train trip to Hanford for the day. We first went to this great pizza place that let the kids make their own pizza'a then to Superior Dairy for their homemade ice cream! Such a fun day with great friends!
At the end of July we had 1 baseball free weekend and our sweet friends the Dyck's invited us up to their cabin at Shaver Lake. What a wonderful weekend we had! Boating, jet skiing, swimming...The kids got along and had so much fun with their daughter Ashlyn, who absolutly LOVED Treysen! It was sweet. Will set up a fire pit so we could roast marshmello's, so nice. The next morning we work up to a beatiful view and yummy breakfast. Thanks Dyck's!
