Dylan's New Bed

We officially moved Dylan into a big bed this today-- doesn't it look cute?! He wasn't entirely excited and has asked for his "nother bed" quite a few times...

But he napped just fine in it today...

and is peacefully sleeping in it tonight as I write this. I think he was a bit more excited about it tonight at bed time because we got to have story time in his bed with Sissy (Savannah). We have reiterated to him several times that he is not allowed to get out of his bed and if you ask him what the rule is he will say, "No get outta my bed". So far so good-- however, he has been summoning Savannah to come to his room and get things for him to play with in bed :) Clever little fellow!! Think good thoughts for us for a peaceful AND restful transition into the big boy bed!

Lawrence Welk Resort

We spent a wonderful week down in Escondido at the Lawrence Welk Resort for the second year in a row. Mitch's parents bought a timeshare at Lawrence Welk back in 1989 and have been very generous with it over the years! We have been able to take some great vacations all over by ourselves and with the whole Davis Family by exchanging the timeshare. Last year we had to be down in San Diego for a wedding and were able to stay at Lawrence Welk for a week with the kids. We had such a fabulous time & the resort is so family friendly that we decided to go back this year.  We were able to visit with family & friends who live down in Southern California, as well as enjoy some of the great things San Diego has to offer.  We love the Lawrence Welk resort & all the fun family memories we have made there--- thank you Pommy and Papa!!!!

Sea World... and vacation!

This week we are down in Escondido staying at Lawrence Welk. We came here last year and had such a good time we decided to come back. There is a lot of history here with the Davis family (more on that later) and the kids have an absolute blast--- so do Mommy & Daddy! I forgot my camera cable so I can't upload the photos I have taken, but I thought I would share a few pictures from our trip to Sea World yesterday that I took on my iphone.

The kids got to meet Elmo & Grover. Both were happy 
for the opportunity, but Dylan's excitement 
was at a whole different level!

Savannah got to have her face painted like a "unicorn fairy". She 
always asks to do this, but we normally don't let her because it is 
expensive! Since we are on vacation we indulged--- the
look on her face when they showed her the final product in
the mirror was so worth it!!

Dylan picked out a super cool soccer tattoo

Savannah & Daddy :)

On an entirely separate note, Dylan has been sleeping in a "big boy"
bed all week! He looks so little in the big bed, but is so proud 
of himself.Our first project when we get home next week will be 
transitioning his crib into a bed! Another indication that my little baby is growing up...

Our Troublesome Truck

Dylan continues to be absolutely obsessed with all things Thomas! Most recently he has taken a particular liking to the "Troublesome Trucks" which are 2 silly tenders that cause a lot of problems for Thomas & his friends. Last weekend we were out to breakfast & Dylan started making this face...

When we asked him what he was doing he said, "I a troublesome truck". Mitch & I cracked up because it really is quite accurate....

Good Night Kisses

Summer Fun...

Father's Day

Special events & holidays are really becoming very fun with the kids. Savannah has a full understanding of most of the holidays now & ABSOLUTELY LOVES to celebrate every single one with gusto! This year for Father's Day she made oodles of lovely projects & crafts for her daddy and on the morning of she insisted we make him a special breakfast. She also orchestrated (with a little help from Mommy) an elaborate scavenger hunt that Mitch had to complete in order to find his gifts :) Here are some pictures from the morning of festivities...
