What a gorgeous night in Dana Point watching Matt Costa and the blank tapes play! These pictures do not do it justice but he was amazing and it was a picture perfect evening.

Farewell dinner for Memere

It has been quite a tradition since Sharon has been here to do Taco Tuesday every Tuesday for dinner and tonight was no exception - except that we did have flour less chocolate cake and ice cream for dessert! She is coming back in less than 2 months so this is by for now! Safe travels!!!

Layla in her baptismal gown

Just had to post this pic of Layla in the baptismal gown that all of Rachelle's boys were baptized in, and now Layla. Part of this dress was also made with my mom's wedding dress... and to make it even more special- made with love by our one and only mom! Thank you mom for making this and for Rachelle keeping it so nice and preserved. Hopefully- this will be in our family for generations to come!

Traveling back to Pensacola

Layla did great traveling back to Pensacola! Mom kept her entertained and dad too- and as always- they tried to give her solid food and this time it was fried chicken! Ha... She will be eating all of this soon enough :) we are still on the road but should be home in an hour or so. Missing the butler family so much- thanks again for everything!

Miss my nephews already...

Bye Jacob, Cale and Lucas! It was great spending time with you... Going to your football practices, going tubing in the river, swimming in the pool and camping in the RV on the beach! We had such a great time and can't wait until we can hang out again next

Road Trip to Melbourne Beach, FL

Lola and Layla on the way down to Melbourne Beach.

Layla meets the daganzos!

Jerson, Raelin and Tyler came over yesterday with a friend and co-worker of ours, Elyse, to hang out for the day to work and meet Layla! It was fun having them at the house for the day. At first, Layla would cry every time Jerson tried to sing to her but eventually she warmed up to him! I have a video of Jerson singing to her that I will post later! It was too cute! Glad I got to see them while they were in town!
