the latest

A (mostly) photo essay update:

Easter. We went to our new favorite restaurant- the newly opened Olive Garden!!! It might also be where I chose to go for my birthday (which was in the same week).image

This girl loves her cat. I can't say the feeling is mutual, but Leo is at least willing to sleep with her when it's her turn to have him.

The kids had 2 weeks off of school, so we spent a day at the zoo.

Marina, Annie, and I surprised Riley by taking her to the One Direction concert. Our seats were on the other side of the stadium, so we're trusting that it was One Direction up on the stage.

We call Tyler our "Errand Girl." Any errand that Blake or I have to run, she always wants to tag along. Many times she falls asleep in the car. Also, she loves cats.

Riley made a cake for my birthday, but we were out of eggs. Thankfully our neighbor across the street has a store! Barrio living at its finest.

We had a Cinco De Mayo party with friends.

Tyler pushing the limits. She isn't allowed in friends' houses without our permission, so this is where she sits.

During the kids' vacation, the 3 big kids walked/biked/scootered to Krochet Kids by themselves to "help." We love living so close to KKp!

We were hosting the interns for dinner when we realized the meat was still frozen. We have no microwave, so we did what you do- ran hot water over it. Except the only place that we have hot water is in our shower.

Riley and I finally went on a long overdue girls' weekend away.

We went to Ica where there are huge sand dunes and you can sand board. I rode down the board on my butt because it is a lot scarier than it looks.

Mother's Day performances for 2014 were thankfully very low key. No costumes required.

Tyler was the announcer for her class's presentation. We were so proud of her for getting up on stage and talking in front of a large crowd.

Brady danced to Mama Mia. He loves being up on stage!
