Thoroughly Modern Millie

For my 35th birthday, we went to see the play "Thoroughly Modern Millie" by Gilbert Fine Arts Youth Theater. Mike's cousins were in the play so we thought it would be fun to see them perform. They did such a great job and the entire play was so well done. We were very impressed and we even got a chance to have a photo op with some of the cast after the play. What a great play! We can't wait to see what's next.

Jackson came to stay one day...

We love it whenever Jackson comes over to play. He and Brynlyn have the best time together and they LOVE seeing each other. They follow each other around all over the place and they always have fun adventures together. We love you Jackson! You're awesome!

Girl Time!

I've been so lucky this month to have lots of girls day out time! I love this special time with friends and family and this has been a fun month worth celebrating my 35th with all of these great girls!!!

Speech Therapy

This is a part of our weekly routine. We get to have our dear friend and therapist come over to do some speech therapy with Brynlyn. We like to practice on different kinds of food and show off what we have been working on for the past week. She always has great tips and pointers to give me so show me more effective ways of getting Brynlyn to eat, etc. We always enjoy our time with her and she was done SO MUCH to help Brynlyn to learn to eat. It's a slow process, but we're willing to be patient and know that we're running a marathon and not a sprint. We sure appreciate her for everything she does for us!

Ashlyn's Zombie Hip-Hop Dance

Ashlyn has this fun hip-hop dance instructor who likes to make dance interesting. So every now and then, they come home with faces painted and they've just danced in character. Ashlyn was a dalmation puppy tonight. You can see that Brynlyn wants nothing to do with this scene at all! Ha!

For Grandpa Sugar's 65th birthday, we took a fun trip over to Disneyland and Cali Adventure in January. Of their 8 kids, 5 of the kids with their families were able to come along with 2 of our really great family friends. There were well over 40 people in our group. Here are just some of the bunches of pictures that we took. It was a party from minute one and we had such a fantastic time!!! Can't wait until the next trip.
