Cade's 1st Bike Ride!

Brad put Cade's new bike seat on the bike today. Then we took him out for a spin.... his FIRST spin ever! He loved it!
"I'm all ready to go guys!! Hit it Daddy!"

Posing with Sofie (3 months), Kristen's baby girl. They live right behind us.

Action shot!

Then I got to try it... it is so light and easy to handle.

Next, we will try the bike trailer and put Penny & Chewy in the back. Then the 6 of us can go on adventures together. Penny got excited when I told her and got her shades on to show us she is ready to go:) These are actually Berkley's leopard print shades...

My Birthday Weekend

Well, it happened. I turned the big 3-3 today. We have been celebrating all weekend. We started by going to Palm Springs Fri. - Sun. Upon arriving, the Cade Man decided to climb in my suitcase to get a better look inside:)We went to dinner that night, however, it was a complete disaster. This little boy fussed, whined, and cried the whole time. Brad & I had to take turns eating. I ate alone while Brad took him on a walk, and then we traded. It was very stressful and no fun. I think our restaurant dining is on hold for quite a while - especially now that Berks will be here in 4 months, making it 2 monkey's to take with us. Once we got home, this little boy was pooped from his 'episodes'.The next day was MUCH better. We headed out to the pool. Cade was entertained by all the "action"... just like his Mommy:)Yep, I forgot my tube top, so everyone had to see my big preggo belly in my itty bitty bikini. There was no covering it up. Sorry guys. Now that I have a little boy to pack for, my bag gets thrown together in about 30 seconds and often things are forgotten.Yay! It's bath time after all that pool time. This is such a treat since we don't have a tub at home. It is all showers for us at home. What fun we had in the tub. Good thing I remembered the bath toys!Since the night prior was a dud, we wised up and decided to stay in and order a pizza for dinner. This was a MUCH better idea. We could eat in peace without worrying about the people next to us.All that sun caused these 2 boys to hit the hay early.We came home the next afternoon, on Sunday. Grammer came over to hang out with Cade so Brad & I could go on a date. You better believe we went out to dinner... a long one too! We went to see The Hangover II and then ate at Benihanna for 2 hrs! We enjoyed the peace and quiet. It was so weird to eat at a normal pace and not have to shovel the food into your mouth at an alarming rate. Thanks so much Marge!
Here is my date.... isn't he handsome? How did I snatch this guy up??My husband and my lil' boyfriend:)The GetAlong Gang:)After our date, I came home and went straight to bed. I was exhausted (plus I had to rest up for my big day - my birthday - the next day:). But by 1am, the little monkey woke me up by screaming like someone was hurting him. I got him out of bed, then came out to the living room since Brad was still up. This is what I saw!!!The plan was to celebrate once we woke up in the morning, but hey - it was 1am - it WAS my birthday, right? I think that was Cade's plan all along. He knew an hour had already gone by without the party starting so he wanted to get me up so we could dig into the birthday cake:) He thought this birthday blower was a crack up!I am always ready for a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. Wake me at any hour, and I'll be ready for a bite... or 5!

Isn't this sign so cute? It was my favorite part! In case you are wondering, here is the "6": Brad, me, Cade, Berkley, Chewy & Penny (the dogs). Thanks babe for making me feel so special. I honestly thought you hadn't even bought the card yet:) I love you so much! xoxo

Berkley's Frills

Just thought I'd give you a sneak peak and some of Berkley's goodies:) Party anyone??

"B" is for Berkley! The pants even have a little "b" on the bottom left leg.

Diaper covers....

This entire bin is filled with bows!!

Her bedding.... the other side is cheetah print in the same colors.

And there ya have it folks. I seriously have a problem with shopping for this girl. If it is frilly, and has ribbons or bows, I'm sold. Maybe I should sign up for Shoppers Anonymous:)

Cade & His Best Buddy

Wheeee! Cade's New Favorite Game

We discovered this new game that Cade LOVES while at Taj's birthday party. The Kindermusic lady had all of the parents play this with the kiddos. Cade had a blast!!

Dorothy's 1st Birthdy Party

This weekend has been nothing but parties, parties, and more parties! Cade is starting to really love parties because of all the CAKE:)
Today was Dorothy's 1st birthday party at Irvine Regional Park. We had a great time. Here is the birthday girl in her high chair awaiting her birthday cake:) Cade with my friend (and co-worker) Shannon. We were at Shannon's bridal shower yesterday (along with Taji's 1st birthday party).

Dorothy with her mommy & daddy...

Is this a cute cake or what?!

Dorothy after her cake tasting:) I have never seen a baby dig in like she did. Too cute!

Cade's buddy Taj was at the party too! The 2 boys enjoyed the swings. It was Cade's 1st time on a swing like this. I think he loved it!! Check out his face in the pix below:)

"Look at me! I'm a big boy!"

"Push me higher, Mommy!"
