Beach Babies

We are taking an anniversary Memorial Day trip to the beach house in Ventura - we came up here last year with the twins when they were 5 weeks old. My mom and I drove up in the Matrix and Ryan rode his motorcycle up. One year later the motorcycle has been sold and the four of us drove up in our big family quickly things change! ha ha

One year ago....

1 year later we've got one walker, one crawler, two big eaters....and both are quite adventurous and independent as we found out again this weekend at the beach!

 Getting used to the sand on their feet
 Hmmm....wish they had a littlle MORE fear of the waves!

 A little cold and both want mama at the same time

 JD sees a dog and is trying to go after it....

 Maia sees a dog too...."Dog" may be one of their first words. "Da" is used for many different things but dog is definitely one of them.

Birthday Celebrations #3

Birthday party, Carlsbad, and then day 3 at the zoo....

 Quack quack

 Warming up to the goats

 JD let them eat out of his hand

 Maia was a bit unsure at first...

 We must be going through a fear stage because she was scared of the parrot's squawking too

 We love grandpa and grandma!

JD's "happy face"!! :-) 

What do you think, does he like being a Grandpa? :-)

 Maia was being a little stinker for pictures - she wanted to go play!
