San Diego June 2015

We took our favorite trip to San Diego in June!  I had timed it perfectly to fall between the halfway point of my summer semester.  I finished up two classes right before we left...literally. I gave a presentation in my last class and then hit the road!  We only drove to St. George on the first day because we couldn't get an early start.  It worked out perfect that Debby was going to be staying in St. George that night for work so we got to stay with her!  The kids loved that!  We went out to dinner and ice cream with her.
109 degrees in St. George! So hot!

We made it to San Diego the next day around 3:00.  We had this cute birthday cake that Samantha made for Chloe.  She is very talented!

The next day was BEACH DAY!  We go to my favorite beach Torrey Pines.

Heaven on earth!

Keaton loved to boogie board!

Shelby and Kelsey.  Shelby has made friends with Kelsey over the past few years of us going to California.  She belongs to one of Michele's good friends.

Chloe wasn't nervous this year about the water.  She loved it!

Building sand castles

Samantha buried her BFF Mackenzie as a mermaid!

Samantha and Michele just got two tiny kittens a few weeks before we got there.  The kids spent almost all of their time with them when we were home.

The next day we went to a aquarium in Chula Vista.  The kids liked seeing the fish and we were able to see a shark feeding and a sting ray feeding.

Keaton liked touching the sting rays.

I love this picture of Chloe on the swing.

We went to the beach again the next day.  The kids were on the boogie boards for hours!

Samantha was nice enough to pull Chloe around on one.

Our last day was spent at the club.  We swam while Samantha had a tennis lesson.

She is a great player!

That night we went to Old Town and enjoyed some awesome food!  I woke up at 3:30 the next morning and drove all the way home.  It was the easiest drive yet and we only had to stop 2 times.

June Fun!

Chloe was a fashionista for swim lessons!
The kids loved this coin drop at the mall.

Chloe went to a princess party.

Tucker took Shelby and Keaton to the cabin one weekend so Chloe and I had to have a little fun together.

We spend lots of summer nights at our neighborhood park.

We went to the splash pad.

I had Cheryce's youngest 2 kids for a day and a half. We had lots of fun!

Chloe is 4!

My sweet Chloe is four years old.  She brings such joy into our lives.  I love every second that I get to spend with her.  She is a cute little dancer and tumbler, she loves to play with dolls, makeup, cars, matching games, Minnie mouse and Sophia the first.  She plays really well with Shelby and Keaton most the time but usually finds a way to get under Keaton's skin and has a bit of a mean streak in her. ;) She loves to play outside, riding her bike and swimming.  She says the funniest things.  She loves to sing and have me read books to her.  She also is a momma's girl.  Every morning she only wants me to wake her up or get her out of bed.  She gives the best hugs and squeezes you so hard that she shakes.  She is a good eater and loves most fruits and vegetables. 
I decided that she could have a little friend party this year.  We decided to do a luau.

Chloe had wanted this cake for so long, so her grandma got it for her.  All of the girls loved it!

Chloe is doing the hula!

My sassy four year old!

Here are her cute little friends and cousins.  We are missing 2 girls that didn't want to get in the picture.

Present time!  She didn't realize until that night that the presents were for her and that she got to keep them!

This was her actual birthday morning.  We filled her room with balloons and put crepe paper on her door.

We love you Chloe!
