Family Photos

So we finally made it in to get family photos. I am so bad we haven't gone in to get family photos since before we had Ashlee but they sure turned out great. I know I am biased and all parent say this about their kids but I really do have the cutest kids.

Seaworld's Halloween Spooktacular

We took the kids to Seaworld this weekend. Every weekend in the month of October they are doing the Halloween Spooktacular. They have trick or treating booths and the kids can come in costume. It was fun and the kids looked so cute.

Our New Dog

I know I have been really bad about Blogging lately. I will try to do better.
We got a new dog about a month ago. We got him from a Lab Rescue group. He is 2 years old and a lab mix. His name is Teddy. He looks like he has some Golden Retreiver in him. He is the sweetest most mellow dog I have every been around. He was already house trained crate trained and knew some basics like sit. He just follows me around the house and lays at my feet. The kids just love him and he is so good. He lets them climb all over him and if he has had enough he just gets up and walks away. I am so happy to finally have a dog and I don't think I could have found a better one.

We also got new floor put through the entire house. We had laminate put everywhere except the kid's room and the bathroom. The Kid's rooms got new carpet. You can see both in the pictures above.
I also started a new job a few weeks ago. I am now working in the same office as Jon. I go in in the evening and weekends. They are a good company to work for Jon has been there for over 10 years now. They are being so flexible with me I pretty much make my own hours and as long as I get my required hours by the end of the pay period it doesn't really matter when I go in. I work 5-6 days a week now but for only 3-4 hours. I am now home for dinner every night so we can actually have dinner as a family a few nights a week. So far so good the flexibility alone is worth it. I really appreicate them creating this job for me to help us out. We were starting to have problems with our work schedules. This way one of us is home with the kids at all times and we don't have to worry about finding babysitters.

Vegas Weekend

We went to Las Vegas for my Birthday Weekend. Jon's parents took the kids for us. It was a much needed break for the both of us. We had such a great time. We did a lot of walking, I mean a lot of walking. It was a lot of fun. Every Casino is like a small city inside they are so beautiful. We didn't do much gambling. Jon put in a few bucks and ended up winning maybe $12. We just had fun walking around and seeing everything.

Too Bad it wasn't the Real Toby Keith but I had to get a picture anyway.

Stopping off at the M&M store for some souvoniers for the kids.

Baseball Game

To top off America's Birthday celebration we decided to go to the baseball game. Even though we lost we had a great time.

4th of July Weekend

Watching Fireworks. And yes Ashlee fell asleep during them. Don't know how she could fall asleep with all that noise but at least she watch the first half this year. Last year she slept through the whole thing.

Andrew and daddy swiming.

Jon's parents got a condo in La Jolla for the weekend so we spent the day up there. It was such a beautiful day to hang out by the beach and the fireworks were great. It was a good time.

We had a picinic in the backyard this afternoon. Obviously Ashlee had a great time. She does this little wiggle dance when she is happy and pretty much everytime she eats. It is really cute. Andrew used to do the same thing. We call it her "Happy Dance"

Jon's foot surgery

Jon had surgery on his foot Thursday May 28th. He was having problems with one of the tendons on the inner part of his foot and had some tissue on the top joint that needed to be cleaned out. The Dr. ended up having to clean out the whole tendon. Apparently it deteriorated so much it was pretty much just a blob of mucus. The dr. said as a surgeon they aren't surprised by many things but she wasn't expecting the tendion to look like that "it was pretty disgusting". He is recovering well and should be able to start putting more pressure on it every day. They sent him home with a walking boot and each day he is able to put a little more pressure on it.
Needless to say I have been a bit busy with the kids and playing nurse to Jon. I did take a week and a half off work so at least I don't have to worry about that. Kids are doing great they are both busy little bees. I was hoping Ashlee would be mellow to make up for her brother but she seems to be a pretty busy one herself. Keeps me on my toes.

Happy Birthday Ashlee

Ashlee's birthday was a great fun filled day. I took the kids to Jamba Juice and then the park. We had Jon's parents over for pizza & cake and Ashlee opened her presents. Then we took the kids to SeaWorld for a couple of hours. It was a great day. I can't believe she is already 1. This year just flew by.

I just couldn't resist when I saw this and had to do it myself. I am happy to see that the kids resemble me more than people tend to say. I usually hear that they are the spitting image of their dad which I think was true but the older they get I see a bit more of me in them.

New Bike & Playhouse

Now that we have some room we finally got Andrew a bike. He couldn't wait to ride in the street with the big kids. We also got the kids a playhouse for the backyard. Now that the weather is warmer we needed some things for them to play with outside. Eventually we plan on getting a swing set for them but for now the playhouse and bike should keep them entertained (at least for a few minutes).
