We're Back

Well, we didn't actually go anywhere, but I'm back to blogging! LOL We had a fun filled week and a half with family members coming and going. We started with my mom, sister and her 2 kids, and littlest sister on Friday. Then we added my brother and his wife on Sunday. We lost my brother and his wife on Monday night, then we lost my mom and my sister & her 2 kids on Tuesday. My littlest sister stayed the entire time. My brother and his wife got back on Friday morning and my mom came back on Friday night. Then my mom left Saturday afternoon with my littlest sister and my brother and his wife life on Saturday evening. Phew! It was a wild whirlwind. We were so glad my sister and her 2 little cuties could come and visit us before they moved out for Florida so her husband can go to DO school. He didn't get to come because he had to drive the moving van across country. Sick!

We had such a great time the entire time everyone was here. We went to the beach, swam in the pool, did some hot tubbing at night, visited the Newport Beach temple, went to Lagoon day, the Aquarium of the Pacific (my first time), The Discovery Science Center, and the highlight - YOGURTLAND!
The Boy was so in heaven! He had aunts and and uncle to give him lots of attention, a grandma to give him love, a girl cousin to play with, and a baby cousin to ooh and ahh over. He also decided that he knows how to swim. He loves to jump in and flounder in the water trying to get somewhere. After the week, he was getting pretty good at moving forward a short distance, but he won't bring his head up for air, so we've still got a long way to go. I was so proud that he got over his fear of trying to swim. It used to send him into a panic attack and he'd scream, "Don't let go of me!" Now he has no fear and he's jumped in a couple of times when no one was paying attention to him. Luckily I stick close to him, but now we have a whole new set of problems!

He also adores the ocean and the waves! As we were getting ready to leave he caught my mom down by the shore and dove back into the waves after he was all dry! Then, we she tried to get him out, he kept saying, "But Grandma, here comes one more!"

Oh, and he likes BJ's pizza too:)
