Great Grandma

Caleb got to meet his Great Grandma for the first time last week. Great Grandma leaves super close -in Irvine -but do to health reasons we don't get to see her very much. So this was a special treat. It was actually only the second time Isaac has ever met her and he throughly enjoyed playing with her. I was so glad she got to spend time with my boys and it was awesome that we had 4 generations of my family in one room!

Our neighborhood

Though we didn't realize it at the time, we chose to live in the perfect community for our boys. We have a beautiful green grass area in front of our house, a great, safe neighborhood to take walks in, but most importantly we live in an area with lots of other little kids. Our area alone has 10 kids (half of them being boys)! Isaac loves playing with his friend -which he does so almost daily and it has helped create quite a community for us here. When it was hot last week we decided to get the blow up pool out and create a water slide in front. Not long Isaac three friends had joined him and they all had a blast! What a great place to live!

4th of July 2010 Recap

For 4th of July we did the Greentree parade at my parent's house. This is the second year we have done this parade and it is so much fun for Isaac and to decorate. This year Adam brought out the bike and trailer for him and Isaac. It was a huge success -Isacc loved riding in the bike trailer. And Caleb and I followed in the stroller.

That evening we went to our good friend Brad and Kara's house for a BBQ and fireworks. The BBQ was great and the fireworks would have been great except the automated system that sets the fireworks off broke so a few poor souls had to manually go down and set the fireworks off. It was mesmerizing watching these people light the fireworks and then duck and cover so they didn't get burned! What an awful job!!! Anyway -Isaac loved the fireworks and Caleb did great!! It was a great 1st holiday as a family of 4!

Hello again!

So much has happened since the last time I posted that I am not going to even try and review it all. I am going to just start fresh! Our big changes, as you all know, is that we had our second son on April 8th -Caleb Alan Peter Rogers! He just turned 3 months and I can't believe how fast the time is going already. But with two kids -two boys -things go pretty fast! Caleb is beautiful, strong, and big! He's in the 95% in length and it shows! Isaac is amazing! He is such an active, sweet, fun boy! The "twos" are challenging but he is talking so much now and it's so awesome to be able to interact with him on that level. We just took Isaac to see his first movie in the theatre -Toy Story 3 - and he loved it! He just watched in silence the whole time. The only problem was getting him to not eating popcorn off the floor..."but mommy we do it at home." Yes -I can see how that would be confusing! :) Below is two pics of us at the movies and a cute one of Caleb-you will notice the perfect thumb sucking form Caleb has...yes it's an art form.
