Gramma Cherry and Grampa Jack*

My parents were just here visiting for the last week. As usual it was so nice to have the extra company and help! We shopped, we ate, we swam and we had a little early birthday celebration for Sierra. The week went by too fast and we miss them already!

Grandpa and Brooklyn

Sierra spent a lot of time in this princess dress that Grandma got her for her last birthday. As you can see, Brooklyn also enjoyed it. haha 

We all went to Eric's work one day for a tour of one of the ships that go out. This is in the lobby of Eric's office.
On the ship

Those stairs up to the ship were a little dangerous. they tilted down for some reason and were kind of spiky. I didn't choose the most sensible shoes that day.

Sierra and her friends (that dolls hair has seen better days)

Sierra is obsessed with these cars at Toys R Us. Believe me, it wasn't a pretty sight when I told her it was time to go. She was also quite attached to that dog in the seat next to her. hahaha

Brooklyn and her favorite toy, Sophie the Giraffe. She seriously loves that toy so much. It's really cute.

The new barbie bike from Grandma and Grandpa

A trial run on the new bike. So far, she's more interested in pushing the bike herself and putting toys in the basket. lol

Delicious cupcakes from Flavor Cupcakery. The luscious lemon is to die for. 

*Eric doesn't really love the fact that I taught Sierra our parents' names. But I think it's pretty funny.

Beach Trip 2011

Last year we went to the beach with Ryan (Eric's brother) and Alyssa and our good friends Shawn and Krystal. We had so much fun that we decided to do it again this year! We doubled the number of children in the last year so this year we got a big house instead of a condo. The girls loved it and we all had so much fun!

Brooklyn basically spent the entire time at the beach sleeping. She's not really a fan of the outdoors.

These little girls spent a lot of time watching Cinderelly and Belle (and walking around the house in dress up shoes)

love my little girlies!

cute girls in red sunglasses

We also played pool, dominoes, made yummmmy meltaway cookies (and had to borrow a mixer from the owner of the house, which resulted in her buying herself a new one), shopped, got ice cream and went out for dinner.
 We can't wait until next year!!!

p.s-i just updated my blog so i could fit bigger pictures and i have no idea what im doing. it looks ridiculous right now. i can't figure out why some of the font is miniature and some is normal size. maybe my next post will look more normal.
