Sweet Lucy had been in the motorhome non-stop for 3 days. She wanted to make sure that she wouldn’t be left behind.

As of 8:31am, we are on the road!!

Our family is happiest when we are in the motorhome. Summer is here!!!

Disneyland 2014

Uncategorized 1 Comment

A few weeks back, we decided that we really needed some Family Time – and a gift for Anthony’s 4th Birthday.

Of course, the very 1st thing that came to mind was Disneyland!! We threw out a few ideas, but nothing ever sounds as good as Disneyland (to the LG family).

I will spare you from all the details, but trust me when I say that Joe worked out a pretty sweet (and risky) plan to get is the best deal possible for D-land tickets. We also decided to stay in a hotel and spend 1 day resting in between visits to the parks (best. idea. ever).

Unfortunately, Anthony is still 1 inch away from ALL the awesome rides in the park 😁 He did ok with the news, but I was pretty bummed for him. Luckily, there is a BUNCH of other stuff that he could do, and he was perfectly happy with that.

Sunday (Mother’s Day) was a long and busy day. We were all ready to go back to the hotel after Fantasmic.

On Monday, we swam in the pool.

All 4 of us took a nap.

We swam some more and them walked to dinner (Joe’s Crab Shack…perfect for us! They have a playground on the patio!)

To end our middle day of relax, we walked to an Italian Ice Cream Place. Yum!!

The boys had a great time! It was fun to take them again. Best part, we still have one more day to go (before September). See ya soon, Mickey!

Missing…

Uncategorized 2 Comments

Last night, as we were getting out of the spa, Joe said “Hon, you really should blog…even if you write one sentence, just get started again.”

Eek. I know that when Joe recognizes my disappearance…I am ridiculously delinquent. I just looked at him with a “I know…you are totally right” face and said that it’s just so overwhelming when I am so far behind, with so much to say.

Excuses. Are. Lame.

Let’s hope that I can pull myself together and get back to it – because, as you all know, I really do love it. And I miss it. And….I have a LOT to say and even more pictures to share.

I will close with one fun fact….today, we get to surprise the boys and tell them we are heading up to DISNEYLAND!!! It’s going to be great.

Sweet Valentine

Again, one of the BEST Christmas gifts under the tree this past year was a ‘hand’ made calendar from preschool. Such a treasure and probably my FAVORITE part of my office decor.

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. Usually that would have me slightly stressed and completely behind (at this point, only 2 days away).

Thanks to Joe’s involvement on Pinterest — we had easy homemade Valentine’s ideas picked out for the boys this last weekend . (And special thanks to our dear, sweet neighbors for letting us print in color, on a Sunday afternoon).

AJ wanted light sabers…..

*And might I add that he signed his two-letter name on all of them!! We were impressed.

Nicholas chose these (Joe & I definitely swayed this decision)….

20140212-191630.jpg

We read him the little saying on the Valentine (“so glad we are in the same school”)…and he said “I get it! It’s a school of fish!!” 🐠🐟🐠🐟

The boys are ready for their V-day parties and I am super relieved that everything is put together early (as Joe likes to point out, I tend to procrastinate…sometimes).

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I hope you all feel loved ❤️💚💜💛💙

Auntie Dani: The Spartan

Uncategorized No Comments

The whole family headed up to my Dad’s house a few weekends ago – to hang out with Dad & Penny and also, cheer for Aunti Dani at The Spartan race. (Oh – and how could I forget – throw in a last minute ticket purchase to the Styx concert at Pechanga on Saturday Night! A few pictures at the bottom of the post)

Btw, have I mentioned how much we love to have Auntie Dani in San Diego? (I haven’t mentioned much of anything in this space in a long time…I know). Well, let’s just be clear – we all (especially NCL) LOVE having her close.

20140204-205855.jpg

The Spartan Race didn’t start off so grand for the spectators (us). By the time we finally GOT to the entrance – we were ready to leave. (But the boys and I stuck it out…with Neal…until the end)

20140204-205956.jpg
(As seen above, Neal & the boys were less than thrilled…with waiting…and not knowing if we would EVER see her pass).

20140204-210049.jpg

She finally showed up..and then we got to watch her (and her friend) complete lots of hard obstacles!

Auntie Dani — our Spartan hero 😄 (and she is already talking about doing this again…but DOUBLE the length. She’s crazy).
