catching up with pictures

Nothing too exciting going on lately.  We have been hanging out at our house lately, doing a few things so the kids are loving the pool!

 And the park that is right around the corner.  It's super cute, and has tennis courts and a nice walking trail.

 We actually had to drain about half the water from our pool and fill it up which took FOREVER!
Naturally we took the time to get a 75 cent  dozen donuts at Krispy Kreme (which means we had 2 dozen donuts for the 4 of us to eat...I'll let you do the math!)
 Lots of time at Home Depot.  The kids (do not!) love it!
 We are having our ceiling's scraped before we move in...what a mess...glad we are not doing that ourselves!
 Carter wants to "make something" every minute of every day.  These are binoculars made from water bottles, paper plates and duct tape.  He uses so much duct tape we had to buy more yesterday.  He's gone though an entire roll!
 And this is Addison's favorite spot.  On the laptop on my unmade bed.  Webkinz.
We are still having lots of fun!  We are excited to get into our house though.  We will move all of our apartment stuff in by August 1st and then once the floors are all done we will get all of our stuff out of storage, hopefully the next week.

Lucky 13

Today is the day...we officially own a home again!  

 You mean our 7 week vacation is OVER?  wah! 
We are going to have a few things done to the house and move in at the end of the month. 

This year really is our LUCKY 13...Marty and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary while we were in Utah.  

(We had to laugh because although we always have fun on our anniversary, this year we were at his parents house, last year we were at my mom's house, the year before we were in Yellowstone in his parents motor home--with them--(having just recently returned from Trek) and the year before that I left for Girls Camp early the next morning...we have had some very romantic anniversaries the last few years!! ;)  Maybe some year we will make it to Hawaii!)

But, we had fun going to two movies (Spiderman in the afternoon, Snow White in the evening) and out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, the Melting Pot.  Oh, and looking at flooring at the Home Depot!  

Happy Friday the 13th.  Hope it's lucky for you too!

July already??!

Well, it's been over a month now since we moved here-6 weeks to be exact.  I can't believe it's July already (or that it's nearly 2:00 a.m. and I am still. awake.!!??)   We are doing lots of fun stuff, hard to believe this is our life sometimes!  :)  
But, the kids still make forts:
 we are (still) LOVING being so close to the beach!
 (these Sea Lion's are at Santa Cruz, and you can get so close to them!)
 we grabbed some soup on the pier the other day when we were there, and I just thought the views were so pretty:

 Carter is a really, really good swimmer now.  I think he's diving for rings in this picture.
 We've seen a couple of movies at the theater ACROSS THE STREET (I'm not being obnoxious, I swear, I just can't get over the stuff we have so close!)
Over the weekend we saw Brave...super cute!  This is the ONLY smile Carter would do...I think he was trying to fit in with the crazy boys.  He does a good job and could definitely give them a run for their money!

We are hoping to close on the house on the 13th which we are excited about!  I am meeting the flooring people at the house tomorrow to measure and find out how much that's going to cost!  I'm guessing it won't be pretty.  
 At least the flooring is. 
 Pretty I mean.  
(remember it's 2 o'clock.  In the morning.)

Happy Monday!!
