ok update

The walk went great. It was by far the hardest thing I have done ever. I couldnt move for a few days after but it was worth it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To see all the pics (these are just cell phone pics) from walk go to

My baby girl turned 4 and we celebrated with a small pool party (pics coming soon).

I ran the wharf to wharf this past weekend and that was a lot of fun (pics again coming soon) We also had some fun in a photo booth at Ron's company picnic.

My walk!

My Avon Breast Cancer walk is tomorrow and I couldn't be any more excited .
Not excited to walk 40 miles (well kinda) but excited to be a part of something so great! I know that I myself can not make a difference in the fight against breast cancer but I can be a part of it and that is what I will be doing this weekend.

Over two days I will journey 39 miles helping to forever alter the lives of thousands affected by breast cancer worldwide. Together, we will unite with one purpose and one goal - to end this deadly disease. The money I raise will provide women and men the breast cancer screening, support and treatment they need regardless of their ability to pay, and so that leading-edge research teams across the country can be powered by the funds they need to fuel their quest for a cure !

Oh how I love summer

I love summer. The hotter the better (ok not to hot please). But summer makes me so happy/ I love being outdoors and don't complain to much that I don't have AC. With all the rain we had this winter I am not complaining one bit about the heat. I actually love it.

Summer so far has consist of:

  • beach trips
  • pool days
  • a awesome trip to Yosemite
  • bbq's
  • late nights laying on blankets (with my mom last night)
  • sun tans
  • Popsicles
  • slip and slides

and the list will continue to grow because summer is just starting.

Good things are happening

We went on a mini vacation to safari west and it was amazing. We stayed in a cabin with no tv (shocking to the kids) and we were forced to just talk. It was a great family bonding experience. The animals were awesome. My favorite was the baby adorable. Something so sweet about baby animals (or any babies for that matter). I have tons of pictures coming your way soon...................don't get to excited now.
School is almost out and although I have been procrastinating on my research paper, I am finally ready to sit down and tackle this project. Sex education vs. abstinence only education.......oh the things I could say.
So with school almost being out that means its almost summer baby!!!! Oh how I love summer. It makes me smile.
I am almost to my goal for my breast cancer walk but my team still has a long way to go so we will still be fundraising for a while.

Ok ok gotta work. But good things are happening and I am in a good mood today!!!

My baby is 9!

Wow time sure does go by fast. It feels like yesterday I was writing this post about him being eight Now it is time to write 9.........ahhhhh. Every year on Jaden's birthday I get a little sad. I mean time really goes by way to fast and I want to freeze it and keep him little just a little longer. I am not ready for him to grow up (but he sure is). I was just telling someone the other day that he is starting to like girls (one girl he really likes), he is starting to smell like a teenage boy and even his little attitude is more teenage like. Don't get me wrong he is still my sweet boy most of the time.
He looks so grown up to meBut he will always be my baby!
He still will take family pics although it takes a little threat from mom
("I will canel your party". )
Yes I will always kiss him, even in front of his friends.
Last weekend we had a party at our house and he has 23 boys over. He didn't stop smiling the entire time...........he was in heaven. The party was great and they all had a great time.

Happy Birthday my sweet Jaden. I love you so much!
More bday pics can be found

Crazy town

I am not back yet from crazy town but I will let you all know when I am.
Maybe it was the 23 boys at my house on Sunday or the fact I spend the night in ER with Sienna and what we thought was a broken foot (which is just badly sprained).
Or maybe it the research paper that's due soon that I haven't started.
Oh, I know....its the baseball games that seem to be everyday and most of the time start at the same time for both boys.
NO NO NO, its the fact my husband is working every night this week which leaves me home solo to do it all.

CRAZY TOWN....I need a vacation from you! Thanks.

My world is one big ball of crazy

Today I am a little nutty (yes, just today).

Between working in the city all week (for those of you out of state readers this would be San Francisco) and all the dang birthdays and baseball games. I am NUTTY!!

My reasons for being crazy are listed below:
  • We have had baseball every single night this week.
  • Today is Brannon's birthday and yes I did manage to swing by the mall for 2 minutes to grab the running shoes he wanted and also somehow managed to cook breakfast before work today for him (good wife award goes to me today). Tomorrow we will be celebrating his birthday with much needed drinks and a game of laser tage with friends.
  • Saturday it goes something like baseball, dance, baseball, baseball, maybe stop by a bday party then birthday dinner for mom (nope haven't gotten present yet....shit).
  • Then Sunday is Jaden's birthday party with about 20 boys and I have not planned it out much and for me this is odd because I am normally all over birthday parties. I did order cupcakes.........whooo hoo (oh and no present for him yet either)

So all of these things make me feel a little crazy at times but then again I think I would be crazy if I didn't have all these things. So my world is one big ball of crazy and I love every minute of it!

Oh and this is me if I was a cartoon character!!!

Earth Day

It is earth day and what better way to spend it than outside. We headed to the lake after dinner to have a nice bike ride, eat dinner on a picnic table and of course play in the lake (to find rocks). Now I am not the best photographer in the world but I did capture some nature tonight (and some cute kids as well)
Here is our beloved lake!

Eating dinner outside.
Of course I had to snap a picture of each kid

and its off to find rocks

Tonight was a good night! We lost a flip flop in the stream (Jaden) but had some good laughs about it when Alec said "we can sell it at the garage sale" and I asked "who would buy one shoe" and he had a serious look on his face and said "someone with one foot". We laughed and laughed! The kids had a great time being outside and I had a great time capturing every moment of it. If you want to see more (come on you know you do) go to our website
