Reading with Great Grandpa

Great Grandpa and Grandma came up to Sacramento to see Preston and I and to take us to lunch. It was so great to see them and Preston loved seeing his Great Grandparents. I love how much Great Grandpa loves Preston. They were adorable sitting in the rocking chair reading together.

We are so glad to be making these memories and hope that there will be many more!

Visit with Eliza and Mandy

Eliza and Preston are just about 2 months apart and Mandy and I have been dying to get them together. It finally happened when Mandy and Eliza accompanied Colin on a business trip to San Francisco. We picked up Mandy and Eliza at the hotel and headed to the Palace of Fine Arts and the Exploratorium.
These 2 loved watching the ducks and chasing them around.

Mandy and Eliza-inside the Exploratorium
They had this cool house where some widows were lit up with lights where others were painted yellow and you had to try to tell the difference.

Preston and I
Back at the house, Preston thought it was so fun to look in the windows.
Is it just me or do they look like they could be related?
There was this little girl that wouldn't leave Preston and Eliza alone. Her parents were not at all good at helping her keep boundaries and when they were leaving she kissed Eliza on the lips! It was cute at first when she was playing with them in this room but it got to be overboard very quickly when she wouldn't leave us alone.
When we were shopping in H&M these 2 were playing footsie :)
Mandy and I
We had such a great time and hope it won't be long before we can see each other again!

Preston absolutely loves peas and now he's discovered a new game he can play with them. They fit perfectly!

"Do you think this piece of chicken will fit?"

Fairytale Town

Anna called in the morning and said that Kayden woke up and wanted to go to Fairytale Town. We didn't have anything going on so we said "Come on up!" We were so happy Grammy got to come too.

Relaxing before dinner
Preston had his first lollipop. It was a lifesaver in keeping him quiet.
"This is good Mom!"
We love when our family comes to visit!
