I want to go to Albuquerque!

Pa had a workshop in abq so the whole family headed up there to hang out. While Pa was learning about meditation we hit the zoo and bio park with Granny and aunt Julie's crew. It was a very long day but lots of fun.  We got to see the hippos eat lunch and enjoy two long train rides between parks. That evening we took pa out for his birthday dinner then headed back to the hotel for a brief, cold swim..

It's Friday and I guess dada and I were both in the mood to shake up our evening because we did something new and went to the movies for the first time as a family.  O and P your first movie was monsters university in Carlsbad but this movie I consider a big milestone for us.  We had as much fun as you can with two two-year-olds, with all the seat/lap jumping and Paige's six trips to the potty, but it was full of perfect little moments that made me laugh and smile.  Highlights for mama were Owen sitting on dada's lap making plane noises during the big race scene, Paige telling mama that she loved me more than ice cream during one of the many potty breaks, and you little stinkers having a little dance party in the isle to the groovy music playing while the credits rolled.

Stop and Go Right Away!

Paigey you did it! You are potty trained baby girl! It was a long summer of trial and error but you really got the hang of it right before we started back to school in August. With the help of gummies (for pee) and "lilypops" (for poop) you made it happen. With this new developmental milestone concurred you moved up to the next room at daycare leaving behind your bubba and several older friends that are still learning.  Way to go sis, you make me one proud mama!
