Pumpkin Patch 2012

This post is long over due!  We took our yearly visit to the Irvine Park Pumpkin Patch before Halloween.  We got there right when it opened and it was great!

Here is a link to last year's visit......where Zachary was totally uncooperative!

In 2010, Zachary was little and we got some AMAZING shots!

Since Ian was 6 months old during this visit, I was really looking forward to the cute first year shots of him propped up surrounded by pumpkins!  Ian was totally adorable and photogenic and Zachary was in a better mood this year!

My boys!

These are utter perfection!

So darn sweet!

Three feet this year!

Such a helpful big brother!

One of my favorites with my sweet boy!

This was the best family shot we could get from the lady who was confused by our camera!

Big boy Zachary!

Totally a framer!

He looks so mature!

 I love the white pumpkins!

 Zachary loved kissing Ian while we were there!

 We couldn't leave without a train ride!

Ian Month Five (September 2012)

I am WAY late posting this!  I've had the pictures taken, but just didn't get around to posting them here!

This month, Ian started eating rice cereal, oatmeal, banana, and avocado!  He is a great eater!!

He isn't crawling yet, but he is definitely finding ways to move!  He doesn't stay in the same spot too long!

He loves people and smiles at everyone!  We often hear from others about what a happy boy he is!

We had fun this month joining in on the photo shoot!

 Ian's face cracks me up here!

 Those lips!!!

Happy Five Months sweet boy!

Ian: Month Four (August 2012)

This post is light on pictures because we just didn't take many this month!  (Bad Mommy!)  But, we have had another great month with our sweet, sweet Ian!

He started rolling at 3 1/2 months and we just can't stop him!  He smiles and giggles quite often and even blows bubbles with his lips!  

He has the most gorgeous blue eyes and we REALLY hope they stay that way! 

He still wakes up once at night to eat.  Joey and I have both gone back to work, so sometimes we are VERY tired!

We just love him to pieces and our family just feels so complete now!

We can't stop him from rolling all over the place!

Those eyes!!!!

Zachary LOVES that Ian is rolling!

He enjoys some Bumbo time now and then!

My boys!  I love them dearly!

Only 4 months and already starting to eat the stickers!!

Daddy made him smile!

Happy four months little man!

Road Trip

At the end of July we decided to take a quick road trip up north to Arroyo Grande (just south of San Luis Obispo) to visit Joey's cousin Jason and his awesome family Lisa, Ryan, Amanda, Amber, and Ashtyn.  It was a chance to catch up with them since we don't see them often and also a chance for them to see the boys.

We had a great trip!  We enjoyed ice cream in downtown Arroyo Grande at Doc Bernstein's, Sea Otter sightings at Morro Bay, a yummy BBQ dinner at Mo's and GIANT cinnamon rolls in Pismo Beach, the swinging bridge, elephant seals, the trampoline, the Like Tikes roller coaster, Just Dance 3, and hanging out with the Hall Family.

 Amber LOVED Ian!
