Gimme! That! Flag!

It's the summer of flags for Dyl. They are even better than balloons!

Kisses that last all day

Cubby is still in love with his Mama and I want to remember this feeling of being his goddess.
He's recently obsessed with my giving him lipstick kisses on his forearms.
He'll hold my face and examine my mouth.
Mama, lipstick?
That's my cue to dash off and put on some lipstick and rush back and leave a kiss or two on his arms.
The blissful relief in his having a physical mark of my total love fills my heart.

La Jolla Cove

The picture doesn't do it justice. Be peered down from the cliff into the cove by the sea cave. From 50 feet up, I could see fish swimming and seals jumping in and out of the water onto the rocks.

California Family!

California baby

Dyl loves to be outside in our yard and at the beach.

Saturday foiled by wounded foot

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH, our typical atypical life.
Bub was running on the driveway without shoes (I FRIGGIN ALWAYS TELL HIM NOT TO!!! ) and he scraped the heck out of his toe.
Daddy and the Littles have been dispatched to the fun outside while Mama and Bub watch restorative SpongeBob.

Goodnight, Snuggle Bunny

I hope you feel better tomorrow!

Ear infections go hand in hand with San Diego

I brought all the boys to urgent care this morning at 7am! Ah, memories. It seems like only 6 years ago I brought Liam there to also find out that he had an ear infection.
Dyl was a nightmare today, but when one kid is awful, the other two seize the opportunity to be in my good graces.
While we waited for the prescription to be filled, we ate pastries at this WILD café, 85° c. It was a Polynesian/ Asian place? I have never been to a coffee shop like it. Techno music was blaring and that worked out because no one could hear Pickle screaming.
Cubby wasn't a fan of the Snow Cake or the Taro cake he ordered. Well, duh! Taro cake? Whatever. I had yummy strudel and a few sips of coffee. I will seriously be driving us back to the middle of nowhere to eat there again! (minus the ear infection, please)

From princes to prisoners

Let's just say that today was not nearly as idyllic as yesterday. And...the neighbors know that I have a colorful vocabulary.

A-hem. On to a better tomorrow!

Another stunning day

The Fellas and I went to La Jolla this morning. Our "waking up with the chickens" routine really helps us get good parking. We saw barking sea lions and found hermit crabs in the cove. Then it took 3 of us to push Pickle's stroller up the gargantuan hill to the shops. All that exercise demanded cake for snack time, which we ate rather peacefully, at a sidewalk café.
I swear, either my kids are better behaved in California or I am waaaaaaay more mellow out here.
Top it off with Taco Tuesday and a secret jewelry surprise from my hunny, and I am too excited to sleep!
I'll be paying for this at 5 am when the chickens start crowing.

Ready for opening day at the Fairground!

Giant hat: check!
Palm tree themed ensemble:  check!
Pants:  overrated!

Toes in the sand at seal beach

We didn't see any seals, but DJ was trying his damnedest to hug some baby seagulls.

Thank you SpongeBob!

If you need to nap with your eyes pen, microwave popcorn (in the living room!) and SpongeBob does the trick!

Date night! Finally!

We went to Jake's and had a beautiful view of the ocean while we ate fish tacos. It's been 9 years since we've done it and it took us right back to our days as a new couple.

And when they were good, they were very, very good.

But when they were bad, they were awful!
Oh, these boys of mine! I get so many smiles from people as they scamper and spin through life.
And the hugs and smiles the boys give me are a beautiful drug. Motherhood is an addiction.

We are "those people".

Who cares? We're not going to hide our light under a bushel!

Sunset at the beach

Liam and Cubby were flopping through the tides and got amazingly sandy. I, naturally, had no towels and children went home in various states of undress.

Fountains in the fanciest strip mall

Nothing says SoCal vacation like $7 smoothies and racing through shooting water outside a nail salon.
