We had SO much fun.

And relaxed.

And sat on the beach while Ollie and Eva played in the sand.

We ate out a lot. We had a campfire on the beach and introduced our kids to s'mores and roasting marshmallows.

We jumped on beds and played in waves, and found an awesome playground where we played on my birthday. It was an awesome birthday, by the way. For you locals, I was surprised by a stop at Boehm's on the drive down to Oregon where I picked out truffles and fudge.

I loved how happy my whole family was at the beach. Apparently we have a couple of ocean-loving babies.

I already can't wait to go back.

Oliver Turns Three

Happy birthday to my sweet boy! You are so amazing and we are SO proud of you! It's amazing the things you can do at just three years old. Potty trained, reading, writing, counting, kind and caring and so funny!

We had a birthday lunch with his (and my) friends... pizza ans cupcakes. Then for dinner, Grandma and Tom came over and we kept on celebrating. It was so fun to have parties on his actual birthday! He loved every minute of it.

I'm baaack!

Wowzers, its been a while.
And we have been busy.

Lots to talk about! I'll try not to make this a monster post, but we'll just have to see how that goes.

Eva is one! We had an awesome party with friends and family. Oliver is turning three in just two days. I cant believe it! Time is flying...

We have been spending every free weekend working on our house since the weather is nicer. I have been on a bathroom remodeling kick. Two of the three are *mostly* done- still need a new light for the quest bathroom and some towels for the kids'. Love how they are turning out though, and I am so proud to say that I have done almost all the work myself!

Also, the biggest news of all-- we finally closed on our house and are officially home owners! Yay!

We are busy busy with two little ones, but enjoying the summer so far (the little bit of warm weather here and there) and visits from family and friends.

(Meghan this one's for you! Remember this swim suit you brought Eva when she was itty-bitty?)

Birthday post for Ollie in just a few days! I promise to update a little more often.
