Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

We finally took the kids to the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom that is in Vallejo, about 20 minutes from our house. It was a lot of fun. We got to ride some rides, play in the water, watch the dolphins and whale show and there is even a zoo. Well there is tigers, elefants, giraffes and lions. We stayed until closing and the kids were beat!

Night Clinic

Tara so generously offered to have a bunch of us over for dinner on night clinic night. We met at the park and then to her house for taco salad. The kids had a lot of fun, and it sure was a nice way to pass the time. :0) thanks tara!

"Is it going to be a brother or a sister?"

"Where is the baby going to sleep?"

"We can name the baby Kaden."

"Is your baby getting bigger?"

"Will your baby kick my hand?"

These are all the questions I get asked every day, now that Kinley knows I have a baby in my tummy. Thats right, I am pregnant AGAIN! Word is starting to spread, so I don't want anybody to feel like I am keeping a secret. I am due in April. I haven't seen the doctor yet but I am 6 weeks (according to the baby calculators online). I was feeling really good, until today. I am starting to think I wasn't ready to do this again. We are really excited to add a new baby to our little family. I also found out last night that my sister -in-law is due right when I am. My other sister, Lindsey is about 5 weeks ahead of us. So my mom should be busy next year. :) At least this baby will have lots of cousins his or her age. :)

Sick boy!

This is a little old, but my poor boy was sick with the flu. He looked like he had been hit by a truck. It only lasted 24 hours and he was feeling much better. The part of motherhood I hate the most is sick kids.

Jordons dad, Gordon (the littlest one)


Jordons Grandpa, Max


This is four generations, but the cool thing is they are all 25 years apart. Max was 25 when Gordon was born, Gordon was 25 when Jordon was born, and Jordon was 25 when Kaden was born.

Bay Area Discovery Museum

We took the kids to the Bay Area Discovery Museum. They really love it. They especially love the painting on the windows. Kaden refuses to wear an apron.

I've been tagged....

7 random things about myself

1. I love, and I mean LOVE dark chocolate.

2. I am actually tone deaf, you know like those horrible singers on American Idol. I think I can hit the right notes, because I know what they are, but then it comes out all wrong.

3. I can't eat spicy stuff, it is pathetic. I can't even eat salsa. I guess I "could" eat it, but I don't like it.

4. When I don't have my kids in the car with me, I love to drive with the music really loud.

5. I HATE scary movies, ever since I had kids I can not watch them. I will spend the whole night getting up to check on my babies.

6. My nickname in elementary school was skinnybones. I hated it!

7. I love the soap opera "All my children" I know I shouldn't watch that crap, but when I moved to SF and it was the only channel we got and the only thing on while Kinley napped. I got addicted. Now I have Tivo and can watch it anytime.

OK... there you go. Now I tag, Andrea Powell, Liz Carpenter, Heidi Rose and Sarah Bradshaw. Have fun girls!

Tennessee Valley Cove

Evan and Kinley on the hike to Tennessee Valley Cove.

Thank you Bethany for letting me use your stroller. I am pretty sure mine would have never made it.

Top Ten for July

These top ten are in no particular order, just 10 great things :)

1. 4th of July. I Love fireworks. The traffic getting out of the civic center was horrible( just ask my two pregnant friends) but I love friends, food, and fireworks.

2. School started, I know that does not sound like it should make the top ten, but it is our third year. HOORAY!

3. A little too much Dora.
Dora: Who do we ask when we don't know which way to go?
Kaden: map, map... we did it!

4. Mom: I don't feel very good
Kinley: Mom, dont be sick, I love you.

5. We bought Kaden some "boy" toys. You know, trucks that move and play music. When he woke up from his nap, we had them opened and ready for him. He was FRIGHTENED of them. I mean, dealthy afraid of these trucks. He has since warmed up, but it was hilarious.

6. Jordon and I got to go see the new Harry Potter on a date night.

7. My sister, Lindsey, found out she is pregnant. It was a big surprise and we are really happy for her.

8. My neighbor has not pounded on our floor since we got back from summer vacation. That definitly deserves to be on the top ten.

9. Kinley waking up at 4:00 AM screaming, " I want a pickle".. strange!

10. Kinley: Is daddy a nice daddy or a mean daddy?
Mom: a nice daddy
Kinley: Is daddy a listen daddy or a trouble daddy
Mom: ummm..ok a listen daddy
