All great things must end.

I am currently winding down from a great vacation/visit from my mom.  It was so good to spend time with her and see her spend time with her grand kids.  I just get so sad that the vacation has to end!  We spent part of the week just hanging out around home, cooking, swimming, shopping, and chasing after the little ones. 

The highlight was when we took a quick two day one night trip to California.  Our main purpose for the trip was to go to this great doll store call American Girl.  This store is honestly a little girls dream come true... two stories of dolls galore, doll clothing, a doll hair salon, a restaurant made to visit with your doll.  We went to the doll store for my baby girl.  I didn't really think she would appreciate it because she is only one years old, but she loved it!  The moment she saw the doll she wanted her eyes lit up and she wouldn't stop trying to jump out of my arms until it was bought and opened for her to hold.   It was really special.  We also found our way to the beach so my little boy could enjoy the California trip just as much as his sister (and her did). He loved the water!  And so did I.  It was just one of those days I didn't want to end (whhaa). 

But now its back to reality... at least I have the pictures to reminisce on. 




These are some photos from when we took Austin to the Build-A-Bear- Workshop.  His choice... A Darth Vader Koala.  (If you have never been there I highly reccomend it for the kiddos-so fun) 











These are the photos from the "American Girl Cafe". So cute.




Love at first sight.
