BBQ with Friends in Sacramento! 8/2009

Jordan and I- So lucky to have her and her beautiful family in my life! A true friend for life.

Eddie and Adam..

Grace and Addison

Caden and Lincoln

Caden putting the moves on Taylor:)

While we were down in Sacramento, we got to have a BBQ at the Garfield's and see our friends the Cota's as well! It was so fun to watch all of the kids (all 9 of them!) play and have a great time together!

Visiting Winters! Meeting Great Grandma Fredericks...August 2009

The Fredericks Boys!

Uncle Bret meeting Addison:)

Great Grandma Fredericks!

In the Shark exhibit at Six Flags. It was nice and cool in there!

Caden and Grandpa riding Harold in Thomas Town! It was over 100 degrees...

We went to visit Grandma and Grandpa and introduce Addison to the family down in Winters. We had a wonderful trip and got to see Uncle Bret, Uncle Harry and Great Grandma Fredericks while we were there. We also took a trip to Six Flags Vallejo and got to see Thomas Town. We pet the dolphins, saw a tiger show and had a great day! Caden loves to visit the ranch. It means ATV rides with Grandpa, lots of lizard and walking stick catching, and just lots of fun being a country boy for the weekend! A successful trip!

We love our Uncle Zach and Auntie Lolo!

Zach and Lolo! We are so happy they live close again:)

Sissy hanging at the park..

Why oh why is it impossible to get ONE good picture with me and my kids?!

Our little rock climber! They even had the cute little shoes in his size:)

Uncle Zach helping Caden climb!

This picture is just.. well, funny. I'll leave it at that. The funny part is that Lolo didn't even realize it until we were looking at these later!

So Uncle Zach and Auntie Lolo came up to hang for the day and we had such a fun day! You know those days that aren't planned that just turn out to be so much fun? First we headed to REI to climb the rock wall. I had never done it and it was SO MUCH fun!! Caden got suited up and actually did really well! Uncle Zach is a stud and made it to the top of not one, but 2 walls. I will admit I was a little freaked when I made it to the top and the guy told me to "let go". It's hard to put all of your trust in some guy that you don't even know that is holding on to you by a rope!

Anyhow, we then headed to our favorite park in Magnolia for some great views, football and play structure time! I feel so lucky to have such an amazing brother and sister in law. We love you guys!

Blessed with amazing friends!

Jake, Jackson and Caden cracking eachother up on the plane!

The crew! There was NO way we would get all of them too look at the camera so this was the best we could do! Pearce, Jake, Jack, Jackson, Caden, Ellie, Reagan, Ava and Ian! And not pictured, Addison!

Ave and Caden. Seriously could they be any cuter?! Taking a spin on the Blue Angel!

We have such a special group of friends. I feel so lucky to have these amazing moms in my life. They give me advise, a listening ear, laughs and overall make me normal on days that I feel like I am stumbling as a mommy. Thanks girls for your support and friendship! Anyhow, here is one of our playdates at the Museum of Flight. Caden could spend hours here! We had a really fun morning with our friends!

Fun in August! Some random pictures:)

Sweet baby girl! Sitting up all by herself, and so proud of it! She is such a happy baby and adores her big brother. She is 8 months old here! No teeth yet!

Caden got his haircut at a place in U Village. When it was done she asked if he wanted a mohawk and of course the answer was YES!! And then she asked what color?! Really? Does it need to be colored?! But he loved it...
We had a strange summer storm and it was pouring rain. Caden said he wanted to get out there in it and play with the umbrella. He loved to play in the rain! He loves to play outside and is such a sweet boy.
My little monkey at the Woodland Park Zoo. We went here lots this summer! He fell straight off the back right before this picture so he wasn't taking any chances and he was holding on with both hands!
Oh the SKUUT bike! One of the best purchases by far although the thing needs breaks! Caden is a maniac on this thing and has developed so much confidence and balance. People can't believe he is only 3 when they see him whizzing around Queen Anne on this!

Summertime fun!

We spent the day at Nana and Papa's and had such a fun day! Caden got to pick a bunch of fruit and veggies from the garden. He can always make himself busy there:) It was so fun to see the end result and eat fruit and veggies that had been grown at their house! 100% organic of course!
Reaching high in the trees to pick golden plums!
Some were ripe, some not so ripe! But you were having a blast!

Addison had fun too just watching! She loves to be outside...

The harvest! Squash, cucumber, cilantro, raspberries, cherries and plums!
Uncle Zach and Auntie Lolo stopped by and I thought this was a cute pic:) Uncle Zach loves the kids and has so much fun with them. He can always make them smile.
