Happy Birthday Chuck


Friday, February 24, 2012

a collage for you

A last minute decision to take the kids to Palm Springs to crash in chuck's hotel room, abuse his hotel privileges (like SWIMMING in the pool!), sit out on the patio watching the palm trees and mountains (and catching glimpses of chuck working), eating a wonderful dinner with my 3 amazing kids outside listening to waterfalls and frogs and finally spending a morning at a desert zoo where one of the nice old lady volunteers adopted us and gave us a special tour of all of the best parts of the zoo (including the adorable brother and sister mountain lions cuddling cheek to cheek with paws resting on one another...which reminded me of the night before in the hotel where Gordie wanted to sleep in the middle of the bed so he could be closer to Adelee). I was relaxed and loved our little mini vacation!! By the way, Chessa was such a good sport and just hung out playing with her toes or toys, and she allowed me to spend some good time with the big kids.Love!!

Another cool part of the zoo was the baby giraffe with the ostrich walking just below the snow capped mountains and bright blue sky...so cool!! Look close at the first picture.

The Little Things

I kinda liked feeling a bit under the weather today... it made me slow down; and I got to notice all the cuteness going on around me!! Adelee and Gordie played LEGO's all day!! Seriously ALL DAY...except a little time off: --to swing on the swingset. Even Chessa got a chance to try out her swing! And she loved it! Gordie can pump himself now...and he LOVES to swing! And I love watching him it is so relaxing and makes me feel so happy just imagining on happy he feels flying through the air! -- to play some baseball. Gordie has an amazing swing!! He hit one over the neighbor's wall today! Adelee, well lets just say I'm scared to pitch to Adelee, our backyard is just not big enough for the power that comes out of the little princess when she swings the bat!!! Seriously I'm scared!! --and to have a mini campout in the backyard. I called it naptime, but for some reason I was the only one who wanted to nap. But while we were laying on our backs looking up at the perfectly blue sky we noticed a hummingbird, buds on the tree branches and even a few baby leaves that had popped out already. Gordie noticed..."That, right there!" I still don't know what he was looking at...but I got excited anyways :-) Finally, Chessa was pulling on her feet so I decided to try on a pair of shoes Gramma gave her (that fit!) And she started developing her love for shoes! Well, right now it's more about the taste then the style, but it's a start.
Oh, and by the way February in Los Angeles is awesome! :-)
