Celebrating 8 Years

Happy anniversary, Robert! 
We celebrated 8 years of marriage today. I remember when that number sounded so big, but it feels like I blinked and here we are. 
Here are 8 things I love about Robert:
1. Rarely are you in a bad mood. 
2. You are always supportive to me. 
3. The way you center your life around the kids and me. Your presence is felt and we lovvvve having Daddy around. 
4. You keep life simple and don't stress about the small stuff. You know what is important. 
5. You will eat anything I cook for you, without complaint. During this pregnancy I have lost all creativity in the kitchen, but you never say anything. 
6. You soft tickle me even though you hate it (that's love!)
7. The motivation and passion for your job impresses me. You have a strong work ethic. 
8. You are simply a loving husband and father. 
Reflecting on our 11 years total together, I feel grateful to have you as my partner in this busy life. Love you!

PS:  Robert is asleep and I have been in labor for three hours (he has no idea). Cheers to baby TRES, who will be here very soon!

Chef Hunter

Sunday night dinner, courtesy of Chef Hunter! Hunter is such a helper in the kitchen and gets sooo excited when I ask him if he wants to help make a meal. I rolled out fresh dough for him and he took it from there! Black olives are a favorite if his, so he especially likes to decorate with those.
He had so much fun, after dinner I offered to make scones with him for breakfast the next day and he was all smiles. We made pumpkin spice scones with maple icing (he calls it ice cream). 👌🏻
At bedtime he gave me the biggest hug and kiss and was so happy about waking up to scones in the morning. Glad we have an activity we can do together that he loves so much :)

Soaking up our family of four

Soaking up our last days as a family of four. The boys love the beach and can happily spend hours digging in the sand, so we headed out to Carmel Beach for a long walk and a picnic. Love them.

Hot Fall Nights

Our summer is here! While many are layering for Fall, we were peeling off our clothes this past week with temperatures in the 90's! 
While Robert was thrilled to take the boys to the beach, my (very) pregnant self was a little too hot. Wyatt and I even took a cold bath together for an hour one afternoon because we just couldn't get comfortable.
There IS something adorable about naked babies playing in the water out back, ice cream runs, BBQ'ing, and living with all the windows open that you just can't beat, though :)

Pumpkin Patch 2016

It was a hot morning of picking in Carmel Valley! Earthbound Farms has a lot of things to do for kids, other than picking pumpkins. They have a kids garden with herbs, fruits, and veggies. A huge teepee, picnic benches, and a store. The boys loved the kids garden and running around the property. 
I wanted to go early this year in case we can't make it back closer to Halloween due to baby tres and I am glad we did because now we are ready for Halloween early this year - we just need our baby pumpkin to arrive :)
