The fountain by California Pizza kitchen. We used so gift certificates and ate there


Bubbas at about 21 months

Climbing on stuff he shouldn't :)
It's the toy kitchen he pushed over
Cruising at Aunty Angela's 
Part of his flower collection he made on the walk home
He loves to go to the field and pick flowers. He shows me he wants to by pretending to hold a flower in his fingers and sniff it. It's really cute.
I love this little guy so much. He's such a happy little guy. He loves to wave at people and smile. He likes to be tickled and to laugh.
Building block towers with Daddy. The kids love to knock the towers down after they build them.
More flower picking



And playing in the puddles made from the rain.(

He loves spaghetti. I heard it does wonders for wrinkles.

Bubs' future girlfriend- Scarlet Johnson

He loves his big sisters. He loves to jump on the trampoline and do other fun stuff.
He loves to ride skateboards

A Baby Kitty

Today there was meowing over by the back side of the studio. We went to church and then came home. A while later the mewing started again and the girls and I went out to look for it. It ended up being on the neighbor's side of the fence, in a corner, in some plants. I helped the girls over the fence and at first they couldn't find the kitten. Then Carley looked again and sure enough there was a little tiger stripped kitten with its eyes still shut and its ears still down. Carley wanted me to some see but I told her just to bring it and bring it over to me. She did and Taylor and she took turns holding it. We weren't sure if it was abandoned by its mother or if it was starving but I told the girls to put it back I case the mom was just out looking for food. The girls held it for a bit and then they put it back. We looked up info on the internet about what to do if you find kittens and found out good information. We also learned if the mother cat doesn't return in four hours that it is probably hurt or dead. I told the girls they could check on it after we got home from a potluck that night. Jimmy was pretty resistive about us getting involved with the kitten, but when we got home (and after quite a bit of discussion), the girls checked on the kitten and could not find it. The mom might have moved the nest (which the Internet also gave info about). Carley was sad that she didn't get a kitten to have, but I was relieved that the kitten wasn't dead and that we didn't have to take care for it. Carley heard mewing from the field that night.

School and hula begin

My second and fourth grader
Taylor has ms. Underwood
Carley has mr. Sunaoka and is in the same class as nikki!
Taylor also started hula with aunty pua

Summer activities

Going to the pet store in the mall after watching a kid movies in the theater 
And playing on the same play equipment that the girls did when they were toddlers

And lots of sleepovers with nikki. Yes, she fell asleep with a book on her face
And lots of playing at Angela's and in her pool
The girls' balloon babies





And doing Jimmy's make-up. What a good sport

Bubs at 18-19 months

He seriously loves ukuleles. He has been passionate about them for a while. He tries to find Jimmy's everyday and has a little purple toy one of his own.
He likes to wake up his sisters and family in the mornings. He is always so happy.
Carley's sleeping on our floor because we have visitors
Picking flowers in our lane. Another favorite of bubs'. He shows me he wants to go picking by not only pointing out to the lane, but also pretends to sniff a flower in his hand to signal to me what he wants. 
He also loves to push brooms and mops around

And likes to try on hats and helmets



Because he sees his sisters getting their hair brushed and done before school and church, he doesn't want to be left out, so I do his hair for him when he asks. He just sits down in front of me for his turn.
He also started nursery. When I first dropped him off, I stayed until he got a bit settled. Then, I snuck out. When I did, he kinda gave out a squeel, threw his puzzle piece, and then that was it. He continued to play. 



Nap time for us both
