Busy Stones

I've been so busy, and my blog has suffered a little. But, on the other hand my boys have been thrilled with all the summer activities so far!

We've had birthday parties, traveled to visit friends, had pool time, watched baseball games, and have had countless play dates! It's been hard to keep updated, because I rarely have a moment to sit and blog about it all. When I have a free moment, I go and get my nails done, or get grocery shopping done. Recently, I have gotten back into cycling. What an amazing feeling that is! It makes me so happy, and it's a great way for me to start the day.

Since I'm blogging from my phone recently, I'll just jump right to the pictures. I'll add captions to update you all on what we've been up to lately. I'm so into Instagram! If you follow me on that, I'm constantly taking pictures! That's probably the most updated thing I currently have. It's so fun to make the collages!

Grant and I have been on a few fun date nights. I love going to charity events and bidding on items! I love what the ones that we have attended recently. I love anything that has to do with children. My obvious passion! ;) The picture below is from the Blue Martini Ball. Grant is one of the Founding members and it's a wonderful charity. The foundation raises money to feed the children (In the Long Beach community). There are so many children that only eat while they're in school. This charity delivers food to the homes of qualifying children. I can't imagine what it's like to go home from school on a Friday and not know when my next meal will be. I'm so happy to be a part of something like this. Knowing that children will be fed warms my heart. I hope to help with the charity more next year! I will make sure to blog more about this event when I have time as well.
In a few blogs back I spoke about Jake, and how much he HATED swimming lessons. Well, it wasn't that he hated swimming... he hated being taking into the pool with a stranger! ha ha. The first time I took him, I didn't think there would be an issue. He loves the water. And he's always like to swim with us... but, he cried. He cried for several lessons. I believe on the 3rd lesson, I almost gave up. I almost took him home, and never returned. But, I'm glad I stuck it out... because now he enjoys going. He loves the water, the lessons, and learning new things.

The classes that I have him in right now are the beginner level. They teach the little ones survival. If Jake falls in the water, gets pushed in, etc, it will teach him to immediately flip to his back and wait for help. Now, he's learning to go into the water on his own and flip. Also, he can float on his back for a short period also! Every lesson is better! Phew!

On Father's Day we went to the Gleeson's house and swam. Jodie bought Jake floaties... He loved them on. In fact, he was pushing Grant away from him. He wanted to be alone in the water. He loved floating, and even was trying to swim. My little independent man! Oh and yes... Grant and Jake look like twins in the picture below. ;)
Grant and I went to an Angel game with the Krusics. We were right above third base. Great seats, good friends, and good times! We even met up with my best friend Katy, and her sister, Kristyn. After the game, there was a small concert by Chris Cagle. What a fun night!

My little munchkin is almost 4 months old! He's precious! He's grabbing on to everything, talking up a storm, and he likes to sit up! He doesn't like to lay down. The child wants to be where the action is! He's wearing size 3 diapers, and 12 month clothes! Really?! How is it possible he is bigger than Jake? I can't wait until these kids out grow me. My handsome boys. Love it. Below Asher is playing with Miss. Sophie. She's a hit with my kids. Hope I can keep on to this one. She's become the most expensive toy my kids have. ha!

Grant got a hat at the Angel game over the weekend, and Jake wont put it down. He's obsessed with Grant's hats. He loves to wear them. If I give him a hat in his size, he's not as interested. Why would he be? It's not his dads! He loves his dad! He already wants to be just like him. Awe!

This morning, while I was making breakfast, I looked up, and saw...

Seriously?! How did I get so lucky? They are buddies already. I'm so happy. I love them so much! Life is good.
