Grandpa does some babysitting, while the ladies enjoy a pedi. Ooooh- life is good!
(And that arm….goes on for days…!)
Never much fun to spend a day throwing up…(but Lucy does it bravely!)
In our house, sick days mean as much tv as you want…and having to sit on a picnic blanket. (Juuust incase….)
Good thing daddy knows how to make it all better with a giant homemade get well card.
Lucy came with us to babysit all the boys, while Nate and Jen got a night away!
(She’d never had a boy-slumber party before, so she was a little nervous…)
But she warmed right up to the idea.
Who wouldn’t, with these charmers?
The twins taught her a few life skills…
And how to play “Operation”
And Jake helped her perfect her funny-face.
Sam and Micah serenaded her in the tub…
And then she got to sit with them for waffles the next morning!
Always a lot of fun with the cuzzies!
Lucy and I celebrated DaddyBen with a day exploring new spots in the city!
First we went to try out the infamous cinnamon toast at Trouble Coffee. (Which was pretty incredible)
Then we headed to the Sutro Baths, a national state park in SF!
Beautiful views, and perfect for exploring!
This day was supposed to be all about Dad…but I think Lucy enjoyed it just as much!
The Cliff House cowboy!
(and some light reading while mom and dad split a clam chowder)
We ended the day at Navy Pier- at the puppet shop! (always a hit…)
The pictures say it all: Lucy had the BEST time at her first birthday party. (Although she did nap through the first half…)
We had a little Mexican Fiesta set up in our front yard, with lots of friends, family, and neighbors there! What a year to celebrate!
The birthday girl ready for her cake!
A little unsure about the brown color…
Making sure she gets a good slice…
(Baby Kenna looks jealous of the bite)
Chocolate ganache cake…thinking about it….
POWERFUL chocolate flavors….
AND IT’S A WINNER!!
Such a fun day! And so many sweet people to share it with!
(With only a tiny bit of road-rage…)
As a late birthday present, we thought it would be nice if we took Lucy to get lots of shots! (aren’t we just the nicest parents?)
(Lucy loved making friends with the baby in the mirror…)
