We decided to go to California to celebrate Anthon's birthday & our wedding anniversary. We brought my mom with us so she could watch Roman for us if we wanted to go on some "big kid" rides & while we went out at night. It was a great trip filled with a lot of fun!! Check out all 4 posts below to see everything we did!
I had to include this picture of Roman on our drive out there. We put him in his upright car seat (which I WON, by the way) & he loved it! It's more spacious than the carrier car seat, so he was a lot more comfortable. He just watched his movies & chilled all 6 hours!
A crazy thing happened while we were trying to find a place to park. A little girl (like 10 or 11 years old) ran out of the ally & straight into our fender on the drivers' side. I thought Anthon had run her over!! When we got out to check on her, she was apologizing like crazy! It was sad- she had tire marks from her knee down to her shoe & I'm pretty sure she broke her ankle. I just knew we were going to be sued, but thankfully her dad saw the whole thing & knew it wasn't our fault. He just came over, picked her up, & took her home. SCARY huh??
After the beach we went back to our room, got all fancied up, & went out to dinner at Ruth's Chris steak house (Mom & Roman stayed in & watched a movie). We've gone there for every anniversary, so it's a fun tradition- Plus the food is AMAZING!! I can't get over how much happier I am in our marriage with each passing year! I keep expecting a "rut" that everyone talks about to happen, when things get into a dull routine & you get bored. I mean, it's been 4 years & we were dating 4 years before we got married. Thankfully, I don't think it can happen with Anthon!! He's too optimistic & enthusiastic about our life- it's contagious!! I love him SO much & am so glad he chose me to be his wife!! Here's to another 40+ years!!

We celebrated Anthon's 25th B-day a day early on the 13th. It was a fun little BBQ & pool party & it was great to get to visit with everyone! Here are some pictures of the festivities:

This post is a little overdue, so I figured I'd better hurry & do it before life gets too hectic (which it will with Anthon's birthday, our wedding anniversary, & Father's Day all in the next week)!
This boy is growing up so fast I can hardly stand it! Everyone always said he looked like a little man when he was born, but now I see it & I'm sad he doesn't look like a new baby anymore! He FINALLY will eat something other than milk; he'll eat any baby food that I make (especially summer squash!), but so far only likes green beans & carrots from the jar. He's discovering new things around him everyday & seems like he's always watching us to learn more! He's addicted to Baby Signing Time (seriously though, what kid isn't?? It's like baby crack). Sometimes, he will give us kisses when we ask him to- he grabs our faces & literally makes out with our cheek!! It's really wet & gross, but SO sweet at the same time! And, my favorite of all... he loves to play with (not pull) my hair! He just kind of twirls it in his hand & coo's at me... it's the CUTEST thing!! Anyway, here are some pictures of some other new & exciting things:
We took him to the lake over Memorial Day (I know, I'm a loser & never posted about it!) It was a lot of fun, even though his life jacket tried to eat him.
He did swim in the water with me & Anthon a couple of times. What a good sport! Poor kid has to love the water with me as his mommy.
He's getting stronger at his push-ups & tries to scoot all the time. He still rolls over instantly when he's on his back, & then screams cause he hates being on his tummy for too long. It's frustrating for all parties involved :)
This is his version of a lazy boy- this is how he chills while watching his "baby crack". I loved this shot cause he looks festively plump! (Gwen, say it in Cartmen's voice- you know you want to :D)
