California Trip- Day 2

We stayed at the beautiful Silverado Resort in Napa Valley. They have multiple pools on their property, so the majority of the second day we spent at the pool! A perfect day in my books!


This is my sweet niece Kendall, she is so good with our girls!

Sharing nachos!

After resting and napping, we got ready to head to my Dad's condo for dinner...

The girls played on our patio and explored behind our condo...

Walking over for dinner with cousins...

30 Weeks!

Baby BOY will be here in 10 weeks (give or take a few days)! 
 I'm so excited to meet our son, hold him and kiss him!
He is now the size of a butternut squash, 17 inches and 3.1 pounds.

As anxious as I am to meet him, I pray he stays cozy in the womb until God's perfect timing. I also have a running mental list of all the "nesting" things I would like to get done around the house! I definitely go into full blown nesting mode, especially in the final stretch! So, I better get working!

California Trip- Day 1

We got the opportunity to go to California last weekend to celebrate Eileen's (my step-mom) 50th birthday!

 On the way out there we were separated because it was a smaller plane. 
This was Sophie's first time on an airplane and Avery's second.

 They were both very excited to be on the airplane!

Sophie spent most of her time playing on the floor. I went into the flight thinking I would be strict about her being buckled in the entire flight. That idea quickly went out the door when I realized she hated her seat belt. It was either let her play and explore, or have her cry and whine the entire flight...

Our final destination was Napa Valley, but we flew into Sacramento. We hit up an In and Out as soon as we found one!

After lunch, the girls fell fast asleep which they definitely needed after waking up for an early flight. We decided to drive to San Francisco spontaneously since we knew we had plenty of time before more family would be arriving in Napa. Gabe had never seen the Golden Gate bridge and the girls had never seen a beach. We Googled up a beach near Golden Gate bridge and found the perfect spot to see those two beautiful sights! 

 Baker Beach
The girls were way too interested in the water and waves to look for a photo...

 Such a perfect day and special memory for us all!

Once we made it to the resort in Napa, the girls quickly started playing with cousin Quinlan and Kendall!
