195/365: A Gals Night Out

There is seriously nothing better than having dinner with your bestest of friends.

That is unless it is accompanied by this:

The Coconut Cream Cheescake.

What a great night it was hanging out with my two best friends - Anna & Alyssa.  
I get bummed from time to time that all three of us live in different states
and that we can't raise our children together...

But it is nights like these, while eating super yummy food, that makes me grateful for the time that we do have.

I love ya girls!

194/365: Feeding the Birds

Today we went with some friends of ours to a wonderful aviary that is located in Liberty Park in Salt Lake City.  The kids really enjoyed themselves & loved seeing all of the different birds.  We even got the opportunity to feed some of the birds!  I was quite amazed at how forward the birds were.  At one time, I had four birds on my arm!  (which made picture taking quite the experience!)  Audrey really liked feeding the birds.  Oliver, not so much.  I was quite impressed with him though.  He didn't get scared.  He just sat and observed.

193/365: Bean Museum

It seriously cracks me up that this is the best picture that I have of this day.
I guess that is what happens when there is 3:8 ratio
Three Moms.  Eight Kids.
Did I mention that one of the Moms is preggo? (Yay, Anna!)

However crazy it was, it was so much fun to spend the day with my two best friends.

184/365: Santa Cruz!

Today we took the kids - all three of them - to Santa Cruz.
Specifically to play in the ocean.
It was a first for all of them
Chasey, who had never been before, and was dying to go
Oliver who had no idea what the ocean was
and Audrey, who had been before, but didn't remember 
(Oliver was still in Mommy's tummy for her first time!)

Oliver spent the first couple of hours just observing.  Audrey & Chasey ran straight in.

It was SO much fun to see all of them have the time of their little lives.
