Happy Labor Day!! We’re just wrapping up our banana pecan pancake feast, the boys are are always quite feisty in the morning. Heaven help me in the mornings, the little boys roaring every which way you turn! We are just rocking out to some music and I thought I’d throw these pictures up here quickly while Jude pokes me with a pig figurine and makes ‘oink’ sounds. I almost had this post done but I fell asleep mid blog post, I just couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore and it was only 11 o’clock! We had a fun weekend spending time friends. Last night my good friend Kailin and her husband came over with their two boys. We ate A LOT of food and then we went and did our Sunday evening beach walk together. Kaitlin and I spend a lot of time together, but typically during the week so I hadn’t seen Dustin in over year and they hadn’t seen Ryan, it was fun catching up with everyone. The boys sprinted up and down the beach racing each other the entire night. Hudson and Finn are the exact same size, little and fast! It was the first time in over the week that the swell has been down. The water is the warmest I have ever felt it here in SoCal, all the boys were wading into the ocean, which makes me a little nervous but the tide was really low until it started coming back in again. Parker, the O’Malley’s youngest loved the water! It was a really fun night finished off with some Kaitlin’s pumpkin pie on the beach.
We had some dark clouds! It feels like fall is coming. The temperature along the coast does drop significantly in the winter, and it also looks as if it’s going to be an El Ninjo weather pattern so lots more rain.
Kaitiln and I share a lot of the same hobbies and interests. We both love a good salad. Between the two of us we both made two huge salads for dinner. She made a kale lentil salad and I did a big greek tortellini salad. It was so filling.
While I am on the blog, I thought I’d put a few more things up. The boys officially LOVE the library. Jude is beginning to know his surroundings well, and we’ll often drive past the Newport Beach library on the way down the beach and he always says, “There’s the library!” And Finn will say, “Where?” By that time we’ll have already passed it and the next five minutes of dialogue is trying to convince Finn that Jude was telling the truth.
Our Tustin library we loved, but it was small and super busy. The Newport Beach library, it’s incredible. I’ve started going in the evening after some of my yoga classes to drop off and pick up new stuff without the boys. I got a few fun fictional reads, ever since the boys threw the kindle in the tub I have been out of my routine of reading. Nothing like diving into reading after a few months off. Ryan has been reading this great sailing series by Patrick O’brien. The first one is called Master and Commander if you’ve ever seen the movie with Russel Crowe. He’s been sharing a few nuances from the books and it sounds like an amazing read. I would love to read that series sometime, I just finished Princess Academy, so cute! I just love those pure and endearing characters, so full of goodness! It had been on my list for a year, and I passed it and thought here’s my chance. I’m just starting this new book called ‘Deep Dish’. Aunt Emily, I saw on good reads you just finished The Fault in My Stars. It sounds like you really liked it. I need to pick that up, I’m all about a good love story.
