Lydia's airplane ride

Lydia and I flew out to Utah last week. She was so excited! Here's two clips from our first plane ride in a year. She seemed to remember her last one where she was only just 1 1/4.

CA Adventure

Ok, it's time to play catch up. I'm going back in time to post some pictures from our trip down to Orange County the last week of March. We had a great time!

Cooper riding California Screamin. He loved it!
In Bug's Land. Lydia loved the "Chew Chew Train". She said "Watermellon, wet, my shirt." You go through a watermellon rind and it spritzes you.

My baby is 2!

Sigh. My baby Lydia is now two years old. The day after we drove down to Orange County, was Lydia's second Birthday. Given the fact that there is not an over-the-top bone in my body, we had a family and friends BBQ at the Newport Beach Villas where we were staying for the week. We actually had Cooper's 5th Birthday party here as well, and it is just an amazing location. Set on the hill overlooking Crystal Cove State Beach, it's basically idyllic for a beautiful Spring day.
Early in the day Cooper and Catelyn were able to feed the Koi fish near the Piazza.

At the "park" location on the property there is a mini putting green, a sand box, a basketball hoop and a nice hill for flying kites. The kids tried to fit it all in.

We had some family and friends who we hadn't seen in a long time come out. It was great to see everyone to celebrate Lydia's Birthday. Thanks to all those who came. Here are a few pics of the birthday cake fun. (We had a few cupcakes for the kids and a cheesecake for the adults)

More pictures of kites and messy kids to follow.
