Visit with Grandma Sharon

We got to see Grandma Sharon as she was driving from LA to Reno and decided to swing through SLO for a quick visit before we headed home as well! We met up for breakfast at the Garden Cafe before heading to the Rock to play at the beach. So great to see her... love ya mom!

Happy Birthday Bacchus!

This Bubba Man turned 7 years old today! Even though he's clearly turning grey... he still thinks he's a puppy and a lap dog... and he always will be to us! Happy Birthday Baby Bacchus!

We finally had the opportunity to use a gift card to Build-A-Bear that my Aunt Sandy gifted Evelynn for her 1st birthday. Last time we were at Disneyland, I noticed they had a store in Downtown Disney, so I made sure that we hit it up before we headed home for the night. Evey had so much fun picking out her bear, clothes, and accessories! She of course picked out a pink bear (her favorite color these days) and then selected an Elsa dress, Frozen shoes, and a princess crown in addition to a super cute Piglet costume... and then named the bear Pinkstone.

Mother's Day Weekend

On Saturday, we met up with Grandma Lynn and Pa Steve in Santa Barbara for lunch and shopping on State Street. Evelynn had so much fun hanging out with her grandparents and of course got hooked up with some sweet stuff from the toy store!

Jane Restaurant on State Street in Santa Barbara

On our way home, we decided to stop at Cava Restaurant in Montecito for dinner. Evelynn was passed out in her carseat and surprisingly stayed asleep as we carried her into the restaurant and all the way through our meal... that never happens! Our table had a sofa bench with pillows that made for the prefect little bed for Evey to snooze while Matt and I enjoyed an semi-kid-free dinner!

On Sunday, I woke up to Matt and Evelynn making me a delicious Mother's Day breakfast followed by such thoughtful gifts from my two favorite people in the world! I feel so lucky to have such an incredible husband and daughter... and I am beyond excited to add another member to our family! 

Matt had our buddy Ryan draw up another picture to add to our collection... this one is of Ventura Pier. It was a year ago today that the three of us went to the end of this pier to honor our lil Hames that we had lost. The flowers pictured are those that we threw off the end of the pier in memory of our little one... and he even had him draw the bracelet I got wrapped around the bouquet of flowers, "Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end." Such an incredibly thoughtful gift... I am such a lucky momma!

To finish off this wonderful Mother's Day, Matt made me lobster with scallop risotto for dinner!

Wishing my momma a Happy Mother's Day... seriously cannot wait for the day that we live closer to each other so we can celebrate special days like today together! But at least my mom got to spend the day with Drew and Jak down by the Truckee River. Love you Sherwin!

Disney California Adventure

With wedding season right around the corner and then Baby #2 due in a little over 3 months, I want to make sure that Evey and I get in plenty of mother / daughter time before things start to change. I decided to take Miss Stone to Disney California Adventure today since we didn't really get to experience much of this park last time we did Disneyland. And then halfway through the day, Matt showed up to play with us too!

Super pumped on the tram!
