discovery gateway

last week, we took will and met his cousins at discovery gateway.

simon played with this for at least 20 minutes, and i'm sure he could've easily stayed there for another 3 hours.
i love how chubby will looks in this picture. good stacking, dude.

needless to say, we'll be going back.

livin' large in LA

last week peter, will, and i went to LA to visit my family. we had a full house and a fun time. cort, kim, and their daughter kate are all staying at my parents' home while kim is on bed rest, whitney and her two kids came up for the week, and my grandma margie also came into town. so, the bedrooms were all full, kids laughter (and whines and screams . . . ) rang throughout the air, and we went on lots of fun outings.

we also hung out at home a lot, and will had a fun time playing in the big playhouse in the backyard.

and then we took william to disneyland for the first time. i think he had a fun time. until he found out he was on a leash . . . hey, don't judge me. with a runner like will, a parent's gotta do what a parent's gotta do.

we had fun going on the bug's life rides, riding through monstropolis with monsters inc., and going on the carousel.

we also took will to a farmer's market in glendale that had a little petting zoo. will loved it half the time and hated it half the time. personally, i could have done without the goats . . .

little kate loved every second of it. she is seriously one with animals.

and our little cowboy definitely did NOT like the pony ride. but it was a fun adventure!

and then i got to meet up with my good friend, lorraine and her adorable kids at the long beach aquarium. such a fun outing with such a fun friend!

In Memoriam

My dad passed away one week ago today.

I just wanted to say thank you to many of you who reached out to my family and me over the last week. The outpouring of love and support has been overwhelming. Thank you.
