mister five.

five. unbelievable. what i love about the blog is that i can easily look back at what was documented. life gets so busy that we don’t notice so many little things…the way the baby first laid her head on our shoulders, the funny things that j says on a daily basis. last year’s birthday celebration was a big affair, and i remember putting away some of j’s gifts in my closet because it was too much, too much stuff, too much craziness, all around excess. this year i had to simplify, so we made reservations for the character breakfast at disneyland, went on a few rides, and came home to a simple celebration at j’s restaurant of choice. love this boy so much.

favorites at five (all in his words):

show/movie: “peppa pig”, “backyardigans”, “miss spider”

song: “peppa pig” song, justin bieber’s “boyfriend”

pasttime: fly spaceships

friends: everyone

school “subject”: riding on the two-wheeler, learning about the solar system

chores: water the garden

food/drink: macaroni and cheese, lemonade

animal: a ferret

true story: j taught himself how to ride a bike. he does stuff like that.

j told us, “every kid needs a baseball glove.” : ) on his birthday j and daddy were throwing the ball back and forth and j took one in the eye. : (

spring break (a photo journal).

we stayed at the saguaro, took a ride on the palm springs aerial tram, relaxed by the pool, and indulged in good food. that’s what spring break is for, right?

march (sort of).

let’s just say i gave up blogging for lent, shall we? things are getting less crazy in my life (i hope), and, once again, i feel the push to keep track of what’s going on in our lives.

two pictures from march. two. i am ashamed, but vow to do better.



these are from our road trip to arizona. a quick jaunt to the desert to see family we love to spend time with. the girls went shopping, the boys took in a spring training game, and (as always) we enjoyed great meals together. tomorrow…april.
