Here are some of the fun things we did last month:
Kayden Finished School
Schoooool’s out for SUMMER!! Kayden had a great last week of school with field day, award ceremonies, art exhibits, bubble trucks etc. We are so proud of her growth and achievement in first grade. She tried hard, made friends, and learned a ton. We are now looking forward to a fun summer doing whatever we want!
Sea Port Village & The Hotel Del
We have found ourselves down in San Diego a lot lately. Whether it’s Sea World, The Zoo, or just exploring the beaches, we like our time in SD!
Wild Animal Park
Our favorite go-to place!
The Sargents got two adorable baby chicks!! While they are SUPER cute… it sounds like they are a lot of work! We have loved watching them grow so far!
Birthdays Birthdays & More BIRTHDAYS
That already got its very own post!
We had a great Easter weekend filled with family, fun, and candy… lots and LOTS of candy! The girls did Easter Egg hunts, died Easter Eggs, raked in some fun gifts, ate candy, played with family, and so much more! Here are a few pics I managed to get, although they don’t nearly represent all of the fun we had. (I find myself enjoying in the fun and forgetting to take pics!)
I feel like Spring Break came a little early this year. We are no where near Easter, for example. I remember Spring Break immediately following Easter or backing up to it. Not this year, but that’s okay!! We had hopes of going to Palm Springs this year, but Scotty being the important guy he is, got called on to travel for the week. So Spring Break was just me and the girls… and we had fun!!
Day 1: We went shopping for new clothes and finished with a Blizzard and a visit to the park!
Day 2: We met Eli and Maica at the Encinitas Botanical Gardens. I have heard so much about the Gardens and always wanted to go, but just never got around to it. We had fun exploring the plants and flowers and the different play areas set up for the kids!
Day 3: We met up with Kim and her two older girls- Addison and Reese- at the Irvine Spectrum. We had SO much fun catching up and just hanging out. I don’t care how much time goes by between my visits with my BBF, it feels like I just saw her the day before. I loved watching our girls run around and telling stories as if they too have known each other forever and no time has passed. It is so crazy to think that Kim and I met at Addison’s age! We have truly been so lucky to stay in each other’s lives and watch each other as we build families and tackle this little thing called LIFE! She has 4 kids and honestly blows my mind at what a wonderful wife and mother she is. So lucky to know her! Unfortunately, we didn’t take any pics together and managed to get a few pics at lunch and in the parking lot before we left!
Day 4: We had another play date with one of the little girls in Kayden’s class. We went to the park and played for a few hours and then had a picnic. Parks are kind of hit and miss, but one thing both girls LOVE is a good ‘ol picnic! No pictures taken on Day 4.
Today is Day 5 and the girls spent the day with Mimi (THANK YOU MIMI for my well deserved break!). We are headed to Happy Hour with our gang of families at one of our local favorite Breweries- Bagby’s.
We still have the weekend to party it up and end our Spring Break with a BANG!!
So we have had a pretty busy month just having fun and hanging together. Here ar the highlights of our month! Some things we did this month are: go the Birch Aquarium, went to Dave & Busters (an arcade fun for adults and kids!), worked on our invention for Kayden’s first annual Invention Convention at school (we made a Hairgonizer to organize the boat load of hair accessories we own!), we swam at Mimi’s house, and we went to the Wild Animal Park!! We had a great month making fun memories!!
So we went to the Zoo last weekend. Shocking, I know!! We love taking the girls to the Zoo and the Wild Animal Park. We have seasonal passes, and we definitely use the heck out of them. Why not? Both parks are about 30 minutes away and we get to get out on a nice day and walk and see cool things. Can’t blame us, can you?
Here are some high lights from last weekend’s trip:
