Carolyn's Place

We went to visit my friend Carolyn twice this summer.  Once in March and yet again in July to be there at her wedding.  We had tons of fun visiting and playing with the boys.   Here are some pictures from our March visit playing with the boys outside.








After Carolyn and Bry's wedding, family and close friends were sitting in the lodge having fun singing karaoke.  At one point Lizzie went to the bathroom and came out to clap for a song that she thought was wonderful, but forgot to pull up her pants and underwear!!  When she realized all the attention and laughter were directed at her she got embarrassed and ran to Jai and myself on the exact opposite side of the room through where everyone else was sitting!!  We have a natural born streaker!!

Unfortunately we were so busy with the wedding that these were the only pictures we took of that weekend.





Lizzie screamed her head off as we were getting into the car to leave.  She didn't want to go.  She LOVED it so much there.  Jai says camp bullfrog is heaven on earth.  We definitely need to visit them more often.  It is such a lovely place to relax and enjoy the company of friends.

My Grandpa

My grandma and grandpa moved down from Utah in June of this year to live with my Aunt.  My grandpa past away this October.  I am grateful that we were able to see him while he was down here with us.  Here is a picture of the girls with my grandparents.

There's a hole in my ceiling

While I was out on medical leave our hallway bathroom ceiling began to drip with water.  Most likely it was from old pipes between the floors but this is what we had to live with for three months until the "responsibility" issues were resolved and the contractor actually kept an appointment (he averaged 1 for 15!).


After awhile the plaster started coming apart during bath time.  Technically the contractor never finished the job.  He was supposed to come back and paint it but he never did!!!

Drive In!!!

So who knew there were Drive In's still around!!  Apparently there is one in the City of Industry a little trip away from us.  We went with some of our friends from our ward to see:



We had so much fun watching it outside with trains going by!!  Lizzie about screamed her head off when it began!!  Yeah Toy Story!


At this time we also found out that Charlotte is addicted to Sonic drinks.  She wouldn't give me back my fresh fruit strawberry slush!!  What a pig!!

Balboa Park

So we discover this wonderful park at the very end of the summer right before it started to get too dark when I get home from work.  It has several playgrounds, jogging trails, a lake with ducks, and lots of space.  Jai says its like the City of Enoch in the middle of the ghetto.  

So we were only able to go there one evening this year but plan to go a lot more next summer.  We actually went the day that Lizzie painted her own nails!! Here is some pictures of Lizzie feeding the ducks:








I don't know if you can see it but here is a picture of Lizzie extremely upset at us having to leave, but the park was closing.  She was kicking and screaming her head off.  It looked like we were abducting our own child!

The Nap Time Disaster

This summer we learned that if Lizzie and Charlotte were in the same room for nap time they never slept. To fix this situation Char would sleep in her crib in her room and Lizzie would sleep on our bed. One naptime Jai went in to check on how Lizzie's nap was going and didn't see her in the room but heard her in our bathroom. He goes in to see what she is up to and this was the result:


An extremely proud child!!!


That's right she painted her own fingernails and toenails.  Overall she did a good job.  She didn't mix the polishes and it only got on her fingers and toes and a little on her t-shirt.  The lesson we learned from this was to leave our door open while she naps.  She actually touches less when there is a possibility of us walking into the room at any time!
