L.A. fair

Mike and I were both really looking forward to the fair this year. We usually do the same old thing but this year we decided to take advantage of as many free shows as we could and finally get some fatty fried stuff. Well Cayden had other plans, he was in a HORRIBLE mood about and hour of us being there and we ended up leaving =( So this was what we were able to at least do...

We decided to go check out the pig races..

It was unfortunately very very hot the day we went which might not have helped..

We headed over to the petting area..

I had to feed Ellie so Daddy and Cayden went into the NHRA museum and hung out..

And sadly that was pretty much it =( Hopefully next year we will be able to do more but we still had a good time.

3 months!

Ellie turned 3 months on September 18th! When you are as behind as I am on blogging, it is hard to remember everything. And sadly these little ones change soo much in the first year it's almost impossible to keep up! What I do know, is that we love her SOO much! She is still my little eater, and is growing like crazy! She has been drooling and chewing like crazy too which always makes me think she is teething, but from my past experience that might not happen for a while. She is always happy unless she is hungry or tired. Definitely more needy, loves to be held which she gets a lot =) On September 22nd she started to giggle for the first time which I love to hear and she is still our little talker.
We decided to try out the bumbo for the first time and she was enjoying it..

First time swimming!

On September 16th we went to Grandma and Grandpas to go swimming! I was anxious to see how Ellie was going to be in the pool. She was NOT happy when we first put her in the little floaty so I was a little nervous she wasn't going to be a "fish" like Daddy, mommy and Cayden are, but luckily I took her out of the float and she was perfectly happy =)

Cayden was having soo much fun..

Catching Snow White giving Ellie some kisses..

After dinner we made smores! I love these and apparently so does Cayden =)

We had a great day!

Mommy date!

Mike and I have been each taking Cayden out on a monthly one-on-one date. This is something we will do for as long as our kids let us =) For mine and Cayden's September date we headed to our local library where they had National talk like a pirate day!
Cayden having some fun while we waited for it to start..

We had a "real" pirate read us a really cute story and then we learned pirate facts and of course, how to talk like one!

We then went to another room where they had a treasure hunt where you went to different stations and played a game.

After each game they would give you a prize

Cayden making a pirate parrot..

This picture made me laugh after I saw it, apparently Cayden was going for a GQ pose, wish I had gotten the memo =)

Cayden all decked out wearing his cool pirate attire..
We had a lot of fun!

On Septmeber 7th we went on our annual Carpinteria trip! Like always we had such a great time, we look forward to it every year and always wish it wouldnt end.
Ellie did soo great at the beach

Cayden could spend the entire day at the beach if we let him, he has soo much fun playing in the sand, making mud, building sand castles, burying limbs, finding sand crabs, he loves it soo much! Mike and I grew up going to the beach so it must be in their blood =)

Mike and Cayden were the only ones to make it out to the water sadly but they both had a lot of fun out there..

Relaxing and enjoying some grape juice

Love this guy..

The ladies

Brian and Trish were able to come out the first day and have some fun with us..

Out for Dinner..

Ready for bed..

The next day we decided to start out the day walking through the town that we love so much..

It is always a MUST to stop at the candy store..

Mike and Cayden went back to have fun at the beach while the girls stayed in did some more shopping =)

I love my mom..

We cant get enough of this little cutie and that crazy hair =)
