Visits and first days

My parents came to visit a few weeks ago. It was soo great to have them here. I really miss living by them and I love to have them see my kids. Sorry Mom for putting pictures of you on here, but I have to document your stay. Thanks for all of the help you guys gave me when you came to visit. I love you!

We didn't want to spend lot of money while they were here so we mostly went to the beaches. This is at Newport Beach by Balboa Pier. There's my dad in the ocean.

I had to put this one in to document that I did actually go on all of these outings. I am just usually the one taking the pictures. I'm the one in the shadow under the umbrella.

Having fun with Grandpa!

Lucy was fascinated by this boy that was buried in sand. The only thing poking out was his head. She kept going over there and staring at them.

Aliso Creek Beach--this is my first time at this beach and I love it because you can park right there. You don't have to walk up any stairs or down any steep hills lugging all of your beach items. You can leave things in the car and go get them if you need to. There is also a park for kids to play at and it's pretty! I think I found my favorite place to go. 

Anna's first day of dance. Doesn't she look like a pretty ballerina?

Lucy's first day of preschool. She was so excited to wear her backpack and to be going to school like her big sister.

There's my cutie coloring at preschool.

Spencer with Grandpa Spencer (can you guess where I got his name?) at Dana Point. Spencer looks huge!

We went to dinner at our friends' house, the Lakes, and Lucy accidentally got hit in the head with a baseball. Can you see the stitches? Poor girl. She recovered quickly, though.

I can't believe those stitches left a mark! That's crazy!
I didn't know Lucy was preschool age. How fun for her.

By the way, I love the color of your wood floors!

Oh, I love Aliso Beach!! It's our favorite too. That's great that you found it. Everytime I go I dream of living in one of those houses right there. It would be so nice!! At least you live close, huh? We'll have to go when we head down there next-I'm crossing my fingers for April!

That's fun that you had your mom & dad there. They're awesome!

Your kids are so cute! I can't believe Anna's going to preschool. Kade and her seem so little still.

By the way, I had my baby. I tried to text you but I guess I had the wrong number-but enjoyed a lengthy conversation with the guy who now has your number! Check out my blog for more details.

That looks so fun to have your mom and dad come to visit. I'm glad you got to see them. Your kids are so cute! BTW cool pics of Washington Wade.
