Pretty Colors

I love the colors this time of year. Everything is so bright and vibrant.
This is the tree in our front yard. It's been looking dead since we moved in so we were quite surprised to see it so beautiful. I love it!

Mikey is getting old so fast. I know he looks like an old man in these pictures, but that's not quite what I'm talking about. He's just so big though....

This past weekend we stayed in Salinas with Michael's grandma and we had a really good time. We took Mikey to the aquarium and just enjoyed spending uninterrupted time together.
(Sorry for the upcoming picture overload)
A cute picture of my guys in the back yard.

Mikey holding his cousin, Kaston. He was in love with this baby.

I know he's not smiling, but he was distracted. I still like it. This was on the street by the aquarium.

Mikey was in heaven with all the fish. The seahorse exhibit was the last thing we saw, so he wasn't too interested, but they were cute.

We all loved the jellyfish

The penguins were cute

Mikey wanted to stay with Nemo and Dory all day.

Michael got to touch the bat ray. I wasn't long enough.

The restaurant we ate at on the wharf after the aquarium. I had a really good calamari steak..mmmm.
View from our table.

Mikey and Michael on the patio outside the aquarium.

Family photo...gotta love my big belly and my hair flying everywhere...what can ya do?

Mikey wouldn't even touch the star fish. He thought they were "ucky"

It took a lot to get Mikey to take his eyes off the giant fish tank and look at the camera.

Mikey loved the sharks. They were also his daddy's favorite.

He thought the otters were going to get him they got so close to the glass. They were show-offs.

There were these talking birds outside the restaurant that Mikey thought were pretty cool.

Outside the aquarium.

There was a seal on the beach when we were leaving the wharf. It was soaking up the attention and posing. Funny.

We had a really great trip and wish we could do it all the time. We highly recommend the aquarium. Thanks for everything, Grandma!

Easter and Ultrasounds

So, I'm a forgetful mother and didn't take any pictures of Mikey on actual Easter when he was dressed up all nice, but I did get some pictures of him participating in an Easter egg hunt his auntie Sara organized for him on Saturday. He did surprisingly well. He knew just what to do and took home quite the haul. Which Michael and I, of course, appreciated.

We had an ultrasound on Tuesday to check up on our little guy and he's 3 pounds 7 ounces already and still breech, but we have a while for him to turn. I'm a little nervous that he's going to be a giant baby by the time he's ready to come out. They did a 4-D for us and we got a good one of his little, but chubby, face. I think he looks like Mikey. We've gotten mixed opinions. Sorry it's crooked, I scanned it in a hurry.
I can't wait to meet him. We're almost done with the nursery, and we re-did Mikey's room, too, so pictures of that to come whenever we get it finished.
