I feel like I am always playing catch up on the blog. Someday I will update the blog as these events actually happen. For now, here is what we have been up to recently. A couple of weekends ago our good friends the Henrys were visiting their old stomping grounds in SF. We went up to the city for the day to see them. We met them at the golden gate bridge. We walked halfway across the bridge before we turned around (we were lucky to get that far with 4 kids). It was the most gorgeous day, seriously so perfect. After that we headed north to Sausalito were we had a delicious Thai dinner and ice cream. We love the Henrys and it was so great to catch up with them.
|Ollie is looking so grown up to me lately. He had so much fun running around.|
|Ummm...this is definitely my new favorite family picture. Thanks Ash!|
|Ollie and Cal had tons of fun running around together.|
|Me and Ashley.|
|Jason and Dan.|
|Me and Ash with our babies.|
Jason's parents came and hung out with us over Presidents day weekend. We love having visitors and Ollie and Max loved having their grandparents around to love and spoil them.
|Me and Jan hanging out.|
|Ollie was having a bath that was too deep for Max to lay in so we put him in the bumbo. I love his serious little face. He is such a little man.|
Jan offered to stay with the kids overnight so Jason and I could get away Saturday night. I love my mother in law for many reasons, one being her willingness to always watch our kids so we can get out and do things just the two of us. We headed to the Oakland temple Saturday afternoon, which was nice. After that we tried a Caribbean restaurant, the family of one of Jason's co-workers owns it. It was really good. If you are ever in Oakland you must visit Tropix. After that we headed to our hotel in Berkeley. We stayed right on the marina. Our hotel had a lap pool (for Jason) and a hot tub (for Ginny), so we were both happy. Sunday morning we walked around the marina and enjoyed the beautiful view. It was so nice to get away for the night. I felt really bad though because Max was up all night, which he has never done before. Poor baby and poor grandma, I felt horrible. Sunday night we noticed that he cut a tooth and then today we found out he has an ear infection, poor guy. Luckily he hasn't had another night like that, but I'm afraid grandma will never offer again :)

Well now I am caught up...whew! Tonight we were lucky enough to have a friend of ours from our Provo days over for dinner. Sam was in town for a conference and we are so happy he came by for a visit. We just wish his lovely wife and their adorable children could have been here too!
