Coast Trip 2015

We had an extra passenger on our road trip down to the beach.  They were so excited to ride together and had big plans for their "iPads" for the trip!


And within thirty minutes...


But the long naps made for happy road trippers.


This year's beach trip was much different than years past...there wasn't much relaxing on the beach so much as chasing kids left and right!









A pretty cute bunch of kids!  These big girls just had the best time with each other - so fun watching them play!


And I see lots of trouble making in the future of these two!


We had such a fun weekend building castles, digging holes and catching up with the family!  Too much eating, not enough sleep and tons of memories.







Saturday morning Tia Sylvia threw the cutest tea party for all the girls (and Ty) and they are still talking about it!



Then it was back to the beach for more digging and building and getting as much sand on every part of our bodies as possible.








We had the best weekend with our beach babes!



And just like that we were headed home, listening to my dad sing songs in Spanish to us....

Sawyer: 3 1/2 Years

Since most of my blogging lately centers around Ty's monthly updates, I thought I would do an update on Sawyer since she is officially 3 1/2.  




She basically wears this dress 5 days a week and has Potsy (sometimes 2 of them) in her hand at all times.  She likes to "fix his hair" and is very particular about the way her hair looks.  She is currently growing it out like Rapunzel so that she can climb on it.  She always wants a ponytail or a side pony or a "brave" like Elsa or Anna.  She must be wearing purple in some form or fashion at all times.  If not this dress, a bow (or 2) or her purple sparkle shoes.  She has the sweetest demeanor, except for when she is tired...watch out.  She rarely takes naps anymore.  She always wants to help me and is very patient and sweet with Ty, unless he is pulling her hair or tackling her - she has no time for that and I don't blame her!  She loves going to school and is always talking about her friends.  She is constantly asking to go to her grandparents houses.  She has a major sweet tooth.  She loves stuffed animals and baby dolls, painting and watching her shows.  She does not like loud noises at all, or jelly.  She says she silliest things and tries to use common phrases often but they rarely make sense - tonight I asked her to put her PJs on and she said "Ok, mom.  If you don't mind" - things like that.  She wears size 4T and size 9 or 10 shoes.


Some of my favorite pictures of her since 3 year update:
