Palm Springs

April 7th we went to Palm Springs for 2 days along with my sisters family. It was perfect weather, beautiful hotel with a great pool, & lots of fun on the Aerial Tramway up to San Jacinto Mountain. Dan had proposed up on the mountain 6 years ago; we hadn't been back since that great night so I had Dan take a picture of me in front of the waterfall like he did when he proposed (I couldn't find the old picture).

Happy Easter!

Last year I had to work on Easter so I very glad I was able to spend the day with my family even though my work had called and offered incentive pay- so not worth missing easter with the fam. Noah was all about getting the eggs, "Noah you want to get eggs?" "YEAH (with a big grin on his face)" He still had to sit down & open the egg & eat the treats but we kept him moving with Nana's help. We had a yummy ham dinner with all the fixings & Noah pigged out on candy all day!!!
I had to add this picture, this is Noah slapping me in the face. He thinks he is so funny, I don't know what to do with this kid!
Dan was not very happy about Noah's flower head but what can you do when you only have girl cousins. I must say my mom did try to get him something less girly initially but their dumb dog ate the bunny ears before Easter arrived.


Yesterday we had a lot of fun at Santee Lakes for the eggstravaganza. There were all kinds of fun rides, crafts, pony ride which was an hour long ride (I am just not a dedicated parent I guess, there is no way I would wait in the line!), & a petting zoo which I loved because of the cute baby goat with its ubilical cord still attached. Noah loved getting eggs even though I had to wake him up from his nap. He would run, pick up an egg then sit down to open it, so needless to say he didn't get too many eggs! After getting home Noah took a nice long nap & when he awoke I saw the horrible sunblock application job I had done, geez what a bad mother I am- I can't even put on sunblock right!

Scripps Aquarium

I don't know what this look was all about but I think it is hilarious!!!
Noah loved the water & got himself soaked along with the innocent bystanders since he kept throwing the boats!!!
Thanks to our good friend Jodi, Noah & I along with his cousins & aunt were able to take a fun trip to Scripps Aquarium. I hadn't been there for so long so it was nice to see all the changes. For easter they had eggs in the tanks that the kids had to find & at the end they got a prize. It was a beautiful day & am so thankful to live in beautiful San Diego.


So I haven't told many people but I am now 14 weeks along so I thought it was time to now let everyone know that Dan & I are expecting baby #2 October 4th. Noah will be turning 2 in September so hopefully he will be a little helpful when this baby arrives. I am still shocked in how fast we got pregnant. We decided to start trying at the beginning of the year & if you do the math you can see it happened the first try!!! We are very excited & can't wait to find out what we are having.
