Boogie Boarding in Cali

So for Robbie's birthday, being the PaRTy AniMal he is, all he wanted was for his friends to go to Cali boogie boarding with him.  A bunch of the guys loaded up in this:
    Yes, all 8 guys crammed in.  Laughed, joked, and had a blast for 6 hours.  They got to the hotel room in the wee hours, and slept.  Sleeping in however wasn't an option the next morning, the waves wouldn't wait.  They rode, and rode, and rode.  They ate lunch, and rode...  Oh, and don't forget the sunburns they were getting while they rode.     

The Birthday Boy!!!
 I didn't know Guys did massage trains!? :)           
The whole point of the trip.  Riding the big waves!!!  They boogie boarded till they couldn't.

P.S.  Thanks Cody for taking the camera!

Lovin' the Mini's

We got these miniture horses at the ranch!  Skye absolutely loves them.  We got to go to the farm, and pick out which ones the ranch was going to buy.  She loved them all!  There was the cutest baby named Titan, that followed her around like a puppy, trying to get her to pet him.  This is Paradise, she's prego!  Their babies are only 18 inches tall!                                    
Classic Ryan
They aren't used to being ridden, so Skye and Ryan have to teach them.
After they rode the horses, they went fishing.  I love this pic, but I love even more, that they are best buddies.
Ok, lets be honest, it wasn't all bliss with these cute little horses...
 There were a few seconds of sheer panic when Rowdy lived up to his name!

pLAyiNG in ThE rIVer


Our little Model.  I asked her to show me how she could balance on those two rocks.  She began to give me several poses.  These are just the ones I caught!  She's such a girly girl.  I love it!
My little DAVSTER's chubby feet.  This is exactly how my feet look when I'm pregnant!  Oh the things we do for these kids!                                    

I love this totally genuine smile!  She was showing me how she puts sand and water in the bottle.  Darling

Trying to capture one of Davyn's darling smiles, but apparently the camera makes her do this!
Still think she's so stinkin cute!  She's such a smiley baby! 
She's getting to the durable age, and Skye is loving it.
Skye will "wrestle" her on the bed, hold her and talk to her.
They both love kisses, so it works out great.
Dav still loves to stand on Robbie's hand, gets excited every time, and just has a huge smile.

She is rolling from back to front like a champ.  She would much rather be on her tummy than back,
so she doesn't roll to her back very often.  When you put her on her back, she will immediately roll to her tummy and push up so she can look around.

Loves to sit in her Bumbo chair.
Loving rice cereal, in fact, she practically attacks the spoon, throwing her entire body at it!
If she can't get to it fast enough, she lets out a squeal.
I'm not sure I am ready to start fruits and veggies, probably going to hold off.

I can't believe my baby is getting so big. 
I don't know if it is the rice cereal, or just that time, but she is finally sleeping through the night.
She eats at nine and sleeps till seven!  10 hours!  I'm feeling like a new woman.

Everyone who sees Davyn tells us how much she looks like Robbie.  I agree.
There are tons of pictures where she looks just like Skye, but they have different eyes.
She's getting super chunky thighs.  They are so squeezable. 

She's been grabbing at things for a few weeks now.
Now when everything she gets goes straight to her mouth.  It's fun to watch the excitement in her eyes
when she latches right on to things.  She's getting good!  She totally plays with the toys in her swing.

We're not sure what personality she is.  She's pretty mellow, which I love.  We're leaning towards Red or White because she's so even tempered.  Such a good baby.  We knew right away that Skye was Blue, so we'll just keep watching.

Love you Davster!

Lovin' the heat!

So happy it's finally summertime!
 We went to the splash park the other day.  Skye loves it because it has the little splash pad, and it also has a huge park area.  I seriously think she could play there all day!  She loves to run through the water for a few minutes and then go over to the park till she gets hot, then do it all over again.
 Davyn spent most of the time napping!  Ah the joys of babies.  She woke just in time to hang out for a minute, and head home to eat and have another nap!

 I put Davyn in her swing while I was working on the computer which is just on the other side of the wall.  A few minutes later I could hear her talking, but it sounded like she had a blanket over her mouth.  I knew I hadn't put one on her, so I went to see if maybe Skye had.  This is what I found...
I guess it's time to start strapping this sweetheart in her swing!  She is officially rolling over.  She would much rather be on her tummy than her back, also making diaper changing difficult!  Loving it though, she is getting mobile, which is fun and sad at the same time.  My baby isn't a newborn anymore.

So excited for these!

We finally got a new washer and dryer!  Robbie thought it would be a good idea to sell nearly everything with our house, including two sets of washer and dryers!  We've had none for 2 months!  I have a whole new attitude about doing laundry.  So grateful for these fabulous machines!
