When I was pregnant with Sam I joined an on-line mom's club. I have made some really amazing friends all over the country. One of those friends lives in New York and was coming out to San Diego with her husband for a work conference. We decided months ago that we HAD to meet up when she was out here.
We decided that Downtown Disney was a good spot about half way for each of us. So that's where we went!
It was so neat to actually 'meet' face to face seeing as we have been talking on the Internet and sharing pictures for over 3 years now.
It was pretty impossible to get a picture of the kids together though, they were too busy running around! But we did have a nice lunch and visit with them!
That is Sam with John who is 2 months older than Sadie
That is Nate and Sam throwing coins into the fountain. They really didn't get 'why' you throw the money in there, but they sure thought it was fun! (See Nate's dinosaur? He named it California. So cute!)
I love this picture!!
*ALMOST gone one of both of the kids looking!
All we had to do was strap them in and we could get a picture of all 4 kids! :)
My sister Melissa is out here visiting from Minnesota with my nieces so this week I have been trying to hang out with them as much as possible!
Sam is LOVING having her cousins around. She is calling them "Her girls". So cute.
This morning in the car she told me she loved her girls. I said "Oh you love Kylie and Nikki" and she said
"AND Melissa!" She is going to be really sad when they leave!
Yesterday we took all the kids to DISNEYLAND!
We had a great time and luckily the rain held off till about 4:30. But that was ok, we had already gone on almost all the rides the girls wanted to.
I swear I took more pics of the girls together but for some reason they aren't on the camera? I don't know...I borrowed my sisters camera since I left mine in the car (good job Kelly. I know.). So I don't know, I must have done something wrong when I was taking them.
Anyways- here are the ones I got! (they are mainly of Sam though)
It has been so much fun having them out here. I really miss having those girls around! And I know Sam misses her cousins. Good thing they will be back out here this summer for another visit! :)
So my sister and nieces are out here for the week visiting from Minnesota!
Sam was SO happy to see her cousins again! Yesterday my parents had a BBQ (although it POURED so we were all stuck inside) and a lot of our family came in to see my sis and the girls since it has been so long since they had been out here.
It was SO much fun! It took the girls a couple minutes to warm up to eachother, but pretty soon they were all running and laughing and playing. :)
Here are some pics from the day!
Sam and Sadie in the morning
My Grandma and Sadie
My Aunt Sue got them all tutus!
Kylie and Sadie
The girls all did little performances for us. They would get up and sing a song and then we all had to clap. It was so stinking cute! :)
It was so fun haning out with them! I am looking forward to spending the week with them! I know it is just going to make me miss them more once they leave, but I will try not to think about that!
P.S. I made Sam's shirt! Isn't it cute? I LOVE how it turned out and it was pretty easy to make! I think I will be making more! I mean, Sadie needs one too, right?! :)
I am a mom, wife, friend and aunt. I am a little nutty with a *slight* Type A personality. I never just 'sit', I always have to be doing something. My glue gun is a permanent fixture on my kitchen counter. I love to create. I love inspiring others to create. It puts a smile on my face when people tell me they are starting to craft. I am like "YES! I converted another person!" haha! Comments get me all giddy and New Followers send me into a happy dance (and I also have to email the hubster to share my excitement!)
