Family Fun in Sacramento :: July ’12

Posted in: Family, Us- Jul 30, 2012 4 Comments

After traveling for 6 hours and 20 minutes driving, we pulled into Sacramento at around 115am Friday night (Saturday morning).  Burke had a rough time making the transition, so Mommy and Burke were up until about 3am, but then we all got some nice rest to be able to wake up totally cheery for a […]

Cookies for Curls

Well, it was time….and we did it. We’d been talking about it for a few days, and tonight after dinner, we got the Burkester all prepped for his big first haircut. Instead of going somewhere to have it done, Burke visited Mom & Pop Barber Shop, right in his own back yard. We enticed him […]

A Quilt for Anderson

Back when LB was pregnant with Anderson, I searched for just the right fabric for a quilt for him.  I was looking for something with vintage airplanes, and the right choice never came to me.  I then got busy with other quilts, life, etc, and I never got around to making a quilt for this […]

LB in SB – Oh what a wonderful thing!

LB and her sweet family finally made their way back to SB.  It was a long awaited visit and I was so happy that we got to do some “real life” with them with dinner at our place on Sunday afternoon. All the boys enjoyed their dinner in various contraptions to keep them in one […]

I ain’t afraid of no T-Rex

We woke up on Saturday with nothing on the calendar at all….which isn’t a totally rare occurance, but nice when that happens.  So, after taking our sweet time making and eating some homemade belgium waffles, we packed up and headed to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.  I’d heard a lot about the Dinosaur […]

Cereal, spoon, and the leftover milk

Posted in: Burke- Jul 06, 2012 2 Comments

Burke loves to try whatever I’m having for breakfast, so he got himself a taste of cereal a few weeks back. Just a spoonful here and there, but then one morning, I gave him his own bowl, and he loved it. At first, he just used his hands, with just enough milk in there to […]

Night of Fire @ Las Vegas Motor Speedway

For our Fourth of July celebration, we went to the “Night of Fire” at The Bullring at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This was Burke’s first time, and we wanted to be sure to protect his sweet precious ears from the loud vroom noises from the race cars.  He did manage to keep them on for […]

Water Park to Beat the Heat

On Monday in Vegas, Daddy had to work (boo) but it was the perfect day for some of us to head out to the water park.  It was another 100+ day so the water didn’t feel cold at all, and was totally refreshing. Burke actually had a pretty good time too, which was super fun. […]

Dear Burke,

Dear Burke, 14 months old. Such a big boy. That you are indeed, too. You astonish me and Daddy almost daily on all the new things you pick up, do and show us that you can do. You have really picked up on the sign language, which is super helpful as it’s aided in limiting […]
