Spring Break Trip to California!!!

This past week we were on Spring Break!!! So...we headed to California to visit Natalie, Dave and the kids!!! Our flight out there was a little rough---what is supposed to be a 4 1/2 flight turned into a 6 hour flight---with a screaming 1 1/2 year old :( However, he finally pooped out, and we made it safely!!!
After getting some sleep, the next morning Michael and Brayden were instantly attached at the hip...and in their matching pjs, they took off into the toy room and cracked each other up as they ripped everything off the bookshelf!

Watching a DVD together...

We went to a birthday party...and even though it rained...the boys had so much fun! There was also a petting farm!


BATH TIME!!! The three amigos had a BLAST in the tub!! I am sure that later in life, they will hate that we have these pics and even a video!!


Hanging out...



We went to a little museum and we were able to see owlsl and some other animals. The kids had fun...and we had to find some indoor activities since it was rainy out!


Family Time...







Time to eat...we are HUNGRY!!

Little Lucy...

Scrumptious breakfast...



Zoo...




Brayden trying to kiss Lucy...and big sis, Gracyn, was protecting her...

All the cousins!!!

We had a such a wonderful trip and had so much fun seeing our family. Our trip home was much shorter and much better---Brayden was a little Angel! Its sad to think that Spring Break is already over...but summer is right around the corner!

Big Boy Weekend...

Happy St. Patrick's Day...

This past weekend we had my mom and Colleen come to visit. It was a big weekend for our big boy. He got some new toys---a little tikes Elmo bike and a vacum to help with the cleaning. He also got a little potty (which is not too interested in yet) and a booster seat (which he loves---he cried when we took him down). Our little man is growing too fast!!!!
To end the weekend, he also got a big boy haircut---which is only styled this way once in a while!!!

It's been a while...

We went to Belleville over President's day weekend. It had been a while since we had gone down there...and we were ready to warm up! We went down to visit and to celebrate 3 very important birthdays!!! Great-Grandpa turned 88, Aunt Colleen 25 and Uncle Joe 31...all in the same week! When we got to southern Illinois is was sooo warm--in the 60s!!! Brayden tried some golf...although, he was much more interested in throwing and chasing the balls. Brayden had a good time seeing everyone and did enjoy the warmer weather...although his cold (which I thought was minor) grew into a HUGE cold and then ear infection while we were there...but he was a trooper. Here are some photos from the weekend and the party!














Organizing and Crying...we have a LOT of both around here lately...



We went to Polo this past weekend. Its always so good to go visit our family there. Here are some pics of the weekend...as you can see Brayden had some much fun, that he passed out in Grandpa's arms--it was precious. He also enjoyed going through Great-Grandma's pantry!




Here are a few pictures of Brayden having fun at home...of course BBALL is a BIG part of his day!!
