Happy Pioneer Day!

One big happy group of pioneer kids (and 2 of the moms) right before the big trek!

Joshy and Drew enjoying the shade of our covered wagon.

Check out how awesome Kristie is...carring a baby and a bag AND pulling two kiddos in a wagon. What a STRONG woman!!!

Drew enjoyed the ride all the way to the park...but as soon as he caught sight of the playground, he made his escape!

Thanks to Kristie for organizing all of it...the kids always have fun dressing up and then playing together at the park afterward.

How did you celebrate Pioneer Day?


San Clemente Slideshow

We had a blast with the Hansons down at my grandparents' condo in San Clemente. Some of them weren't able to come, and we missed them...but hopefully we can do something like this with everyone in the future!

The beach was gorgeous of course and the tide was unusually low early in the morning, so we went down to look for starfish and such a few times. We even found an octopus and scooped it up (with a load of sand!) and rescued it! Diego would be so proud! :) There were loads of hermit crabs and one even got stuck to my sweatshirt!

We were even able to go to an Angels game with everyone...it was fun! Vladdy wasn't doing to well that night, and so we didn't see many homeruns...but it was still fun and they won! It is hard to watch the game with so many little kids to keep track of, but I think everybody had a good time. They even had a giveaway that night -- jerseys for all the kids -- more like dresses! They are HUGE! But so cute. Jakob has slept in his already -- perfect sleep shirt!

The following week the Mortensens (my side of the family) arrived, and we got to continue visiting down in San Clemente a bit longer. I think it is so important for kids to spend time with their cousins -- that was something I loved doing when I was little so I was so happy for them to get a full dose of Hansons and Mortensens all within a 2 week period!

All in all it was a fabulous time and I wish I lived at the beach. Can't get enough of it! Sunshine and the calming sound of waves crashing is the perfect recipe for a great summer!!!! Anyone want to join us here in Huntington anytime soon??? I think it's time for a beach day!!!!
