The Brockbank’s Fourth of July Visit

IMG_1637My parents came and vacationed down in Laguna Beach for the Fourth, we didn’t know they were coming into town until a few days before. I actually love being surprised with visits. It was a great excuse to take a break from packing, heaven knows that packing/organizing doesn’t really magnify my skill set, let’s be honest I’m down right struggs. Ryan on the other hand throws on some music -pulls out his shrink wrap and just starts hauling out furniture. It’s impressive. Here are a few pictures from our fourth of July weekend.

IMG_1673One of Tanner’s closest friend Taysom Hill came on the trip with my family, really nice boy. Between my mom and I we were outnumbered by eight boys including our three. A large chunk of these pictures are via iphone. I was quite exhausted from the packing. I have been fighting some intense fatigue but I found a great solution and I have been feeling much better. Here is Gigi, Mr and Jasper.

Jude did really well with them, considering vacationing is out of our routine: no melt downs. This was the first trip that Jude has been able to say ‘Gigi’. Finn especially was excited to hear Jude talking. Driving in the car Finn was so excited, “Say Gigi AGAIN Jude!” Oh Mr you my dear are a wonderful cheerleader.

IMG_1686Finn got REALLY close to the camera. It always make the boys feel special when I take their picture.

  1. Thanks Miller for letting us disrupt your packing! Dad got on a plane this morning he really needed his beach walk on the beach.

  2. So fun!!! It must have been so nice to spend time together. Everyone looks great! Enjoy your final weeks in California!! I am so excited for your next adventures!!

    What’s your secret to fighting fatigue? I have to know!!!

    Love you all & can’t wait to see you!!!

  3. Lelers! Hey! So I just started doing B-12 injections. I took my first one a few days ago. Shot myself right in the petutes! My mom and Grandma swear by them. I’ve been anemic for years which they tell me really causes fatigue in and of itself. I finally hit a point where I just said, ‘enough is enough- I am tired of going to bed so tired and waking up tired!’ It took two days to kick in but I actually feel like a normal person again. Not so bone tired all the time! I’m going to keep doing it for a few weeks until my B-12 levels are better.
