Fun On The Swing

Abigail tried the swing on her own for the very first time today.  She loved it (even though it may not look like it in this picture).  She enjoyed swinging back and forth and didn't want to get out.

Home Depot

We are getting ready to landscape our front yard so Abigail and I went to Home Depot today to check out flowers, rocks, mulch, etc.  Abigail found her Winnie the Pooh bear much more interesting than looking at flowers.

60th Annual Lompoc Flower Festival

Abigail, Ted, and I had a wonderful time at the Lompoc Flower Festival this morning.  After listening to our neighbor's band, Candy Jam, I took Abigail on her very first carousel ride.  Abigail loved it.

Abigail Hearts Tags

Abigail has a fascination with tags.  She will find the tag on any toy, burp cloth, bib, etc. that we give her.  She loves to find them and suck on them.

Happy Father's Day, Ted

Happy Father's Day, Ted!  We love you.

Saturday, June 16, 2012


Our original plan was to eat at Mo's in Pismo Beach this afternoon for an early Father's Day lunch, however when we arrived we realized there was a car show this weekend (and lots of extra people and no parking) so we decided to head up to SLO.  I'm so glad out original plan was thwarted as it was a gorgeous day to be out and about.  After lunch we walked around downtown SLO enjoying the warm weather and fun window shopping.

We Bought A Zoo

We've had this movie for three weeks and we finally found time to watch it this evening, and I'm glad we did.  Such a cute movie and what makes it even better is that it is based on a true story and has a great soundtrack.  I really enjoyed this movie.

Beach Walk

Abigail and I walked along the beach in Santa Barbara this afternoon.  She slept for the first 20 minutes of our walk but woke up for the last 45 minutes of our walk.  Beautiful day to be at the beach.

Not Asleep

Here is my silly girl who is supposed to be taking a nap.  She played quietly for a while then decided it was time to get out of her crib.
