Sea World much?!?

So, you probably all know how much I LOVE Sea World. Seriously, every time we're at the Dolphin Show I still kick myself for not following through on my junior high plans of becoming a Sea World Dolphin Trainer! I sit there thinking, "I could SOOO do that!" Anyway, it's clear that the boys and I spend LOTS of time there. And here's the evidence to prove it... check out the audience Sam set up to watch his Cirque de la Mar show (aka The Jumping People Show) in the family room! I love this funny guy!

...and please disregard the filthy huge shirt Sam's wearing... we bought him a new preschool t-shirt (that was the smallest size) and he wore it for 3 days (and nights) straight before I could get him to part with it to be washed. Such a boy!!

A natural in the water!

It must be due to the fact that his younger brother is a WHALE (a name given to Jake by Sam) that allows Sam to be such a NaTuRaL in the water at swim lessons! He is doing great- jumping into the water, going underwater, and kicking like crazy. He calls that part the "Splash Zone" just like at the Sea World shows. Go Sam!! And thank you Mandy for getting in the water with him on his very first day when I was too sunburned to get in the water with him!

So busy swimming... but still time to stop and pose for the camera. That's my boy!

Jake's Discovery at the Park!

During our long weekend in San Diego, I took the boys for a pizza picnic at the park. Jake discovered those little woodchip, bark things for the first time and WoW, he was in heaven!

What is this MaGiCaL stuff?

It's too quiet in here!

We escaped the heat and headed to San Diego for a loooong weekend of relaxation. We did just about every fun, free thing you can do there! On Friday afternoon at my parents house, Sam was watching a movie and Jake was having a snack. All of a sudden, it just seemed way too quiet. I thought something was wrong, but this is what I found... of course, I joined them for a wonderful afternoon siesta!

mEriNgUe FrOsTiNg?!?!

Sooo, I found this cutest ever blog that belongs to two friends of a friend (Jackie's friend and sis-in-law) and I HAD to try the mErInGuE FrOsTiNg and it did not disappoint. The recipe for Peanut Butter Coffee Cupcakes were fabulous as well, but I ate them all too quickly to get a picture of them. yUmMy!! Maybe next time I'll share... maybe.

piZzA, piZzA!!

Sam was a super helper making homemade PiZzA for dinner on Friday night! He was so funny, putting one pepperoni on the PiZzA and then one in his mouth. Finally I told him not to eat anymore because he was going to get a tummy ache. He had already taken one bite of a pepperoni as I said that, so he followed directions well and put the half-eaten pepperoni slice on the PiZzA instead of eating it! I guess I got what I asked for, right?! At least we weren't having dinner guests that night... and the PiZzA was DEE-licious! tHaNkS for helping sAmUeL!!

San Diego Weekend!

Ben and I had a great time celebrating his birthday in downtown San Diego... a daytime Padres game (which they won, of course), a relaxing dinner in the Gaslamp, and a fabulous hotel (I HIGHLY recommend a night at the Omni... a super-duper hotel with great customer service- a rare treat these days!) AND I even got in a little sHoPpInG... I had to ditch my cute high "hells" because they were killing my feet. When I asked the guy at Urban Outfitters to please cut off the tags on my new over-priced flip-flops, Ben thought I was cRaZy, but the guy gave me a really sympathetic look and said, "Are your feet hurting you?" I said, "Sooo badly" and he said girls come in all the time and do the same thing. See, I'm not crazy Ben :)
