Father's Day 2013

Just a little shout out to Dad, Kaden's very favorite playmate.  We celebrated with a french toast brunch at Ortega's, followed by a day at the beach.  After nap we tested out our new ladder and ended the evening with popsicles on the porch.  Kevin may have preferred spending the day on a golf course, but his boy thought the day was practically perfect.

This year, Touch-a-Truck was held at Chargers Stadium.  This meant bigger and better and...a whole lot noisier.  So noisy, in fact, they sold ear plugs for the kids.  Kaden, not liking loud noises too much, took the whole thing in stride and when he saw all the trucks he jumped right in the fun.  That is until RoboTruck started his act.  Then the poor boy clung to his father's neck and begged to be taken home.  It was fun while it lasted.

School Is Out For Summer!

Kaden had a great first year of school!  

We celebrated the end of the year at a party with all our new preschool friends and our beloved teacher, Mrs. Carroll.  The cake pops and bouncy house were, not surprisingly, the biggest hit of the day.

What a difference nine months can make!  I sent him to preschool a baby, he returned a little boy.

Another Step in the Process - Bye Bye Termites

Prior to closing on the house, we had to have a termite inspection and, lo and behold, they recommended we have the house fumigated.  Now this isn't unusual in Southern California.  Any given day you'll drive down a street and see at least one house with a giant colored tent surrounding it.  I think it is probably a racket, but since it is required...  Our plans were to spend the weekend in Palm Springs with friends, but the 110+ degree temperatures scared us off.  Lucky for us, we have generous friends who offered their beach house to us.  We played in the sand, ate breakfast out, went for bike rides on the boardwalk, and had friends over to play.  What a great excuse for a staycation!
