Dean is 1 going on 13, so he tried to do everything the big kids do. My lesson learned (a few years running) wasn’t repeated – I didn’t eat a single thing at the fair, so I won’t be sick for the next week in return! Victory and defeat in one. Not sure if we’ll be able to fit another visit before the fair is gone, so we squeezed it all in today – fun house, rainbow slide, and all the exhibits. Well done OC, well done!

newborn photographer los alamitos california-Newest nephew Fox joined our family on July 13th, just 13 minutes before my mom’s birthday! We keep joking he wanted his own birthday since July is a hectic birthday month. Recapping: my niece Ruby is born the 11th, Linds (my sister) the 12th, Fox the 13th, and my mom the 14th. We’re going to have to stop having “joint birthday parties” and upgrade to a bonanza or Soiree. Also, this kid was a whopping 13 days late. Katie’s my new idol.

-We are finally settled in the new house. My kids wouldn’t sleep alone for the first two months here since the house is huge and it feels so different than our previous tiny house. I slept on the floor of the boys room several times, and paid for it dearly. I’m 30 now, which apparently means I can’t sleep with a plush mattress topped with a extra plush mattress topper.

-Quin + Ruby had their fist all day all night cousin sleepover (without their mommy). They made me a video list of everything they wanted to do while they were at Aunties house, and sent it to me the day before. We accomplished everything except “make candy” because their mother made me promise not to give them sugar, haha!seal beach family vacation
