Grandma and Grandpa visit Santa Barbara

YAY! Grandma and Grandpa came down and did what grandparents do best... they showered Connor and Jessica with love. Grandma did lots of holding & hugging & loving. We walked to breakfast and then down to the Veterans day parade, we made a cozy dinner at home, played games, read books, celebrated Chris' birthday and had a great visit. Here are some cute pix of their visit.

A few cute pix

Our friends Mike and Maria had us over for breakfast and a trip to the park a few weeks ago. 
Here are some photos Maria took. My favorite is our family on the alligator. 

Here is Connor holding Ave's hand. She is such a sweet girl. 

Chris's Birthday Surprise

We surprised Chris for his birthday with a bowling party at Zodo's Bowling and Beyond. Chris was completely surprised!!!! We ate sliders, cheers with many drinks and had delicious cupcakes from Whodidily. Everyone bowled, laughed, posed for pix and had a great time.

Beautiful & delicious cupcakes.

We had all of our Jessica's there...

Baby Jess did lots of sleeping. For the 1st half of the party you didn't even know she was there.

Matt and Bill talking baseball. 

Jess & Mike getting there game on.

Chris and Ken. Ken is a pretty serious bowler. 
Look out! 
Chris was thrilled that Uncle Terry and Grandpa were there.

good friends + bowling + drinks = good times
Yes we did lots of posing for pix.

Baby Jess got lots of love. When she was not sleeping Auntie Ronda AKA the baby whisperer held her. 
Grandma held her, Jessica held her and of course Mommy. She was a happy loved baby.

Connor loves to dress like Dad. They both looked pretty cute in there argyle sweaters and bowling shoes.

It was perfect that Grandma and Grandpa came down and got to celebrate Chris' birthday with us.

Happy Birthday Chris we love you!
