Beckham has been so patient watching mom workout in the morning at Jazzercise. Today, he officially graduated from the car seat in the hallway to the Nursery with Gracey.
I peeked in a few times and Gracey had permanently fixed herself in front of her little brother, guarding him with her life. Pretty sweet.

I had an entire hour to get my serious sweat on. Jazzercise...watch out, I am officially back!

I felt like wonder mom today, ready to conquer any toddler emotional breakdown that comes my way.

This fabulous resort has become one of our favorite destinations. It has everything you need for a relaxing, rejuvenating vacation. Las Flores is a natural cove, surrounded by dense tropical flora, a black sand beach and an epic right point break. I think the only thing that would make this place more unreal is if the diet coke was on tap.

We missed the kids dearly but loved every minute away.

Cheers to homemade Horchata.

The girls were so excited that a yoga program was added to the activities of the resort. We did 2 hour classes up on this serene outlook, at the top of a hill. The view was absolutely stunning.

Cultural night.

The Girls


Loved our vacation together and some good down time.
Many thanks to the "grammy's" for taking such good care of our kids while we were gone.

We celebrated KADEN'S 3rd birthday at the Bishop's local Pumpkin Patch. We had such a great time watching the kids play in the hay, touching the animals, walking hand in hand through the corn field maze and most of all being together.


Once again Whitney (party planner extraordinaire) threw an amazing Halloween party . She is so incredibly talented and doesn't forget any of the details. We are lucky to always be on her guest list:)

Don and Betty Draper (MAD MEN)
{If you are not watching, I suggest you tune in. Love it!}

Auntie Erinn and Uncle Andrew came from LA to party with us. We found out that night that Erinn and Andrew are having a Baby. YAAAA! We love you guys and could not be happier. Can't wait to meet the little guy.

Gracey loved the Art project Whitney put together. This was pumpkin #4.


Oh my heavens, this face is cute. Love the dimples!

My mom is already teaching me how to do push ups.

Crawling. It's all happening so fast. We came home from El Salvador and Beckham is crawling, sitting up and getting into mischief. Watch out!

5 months old
My sweet baby started eating cereal last week and is hanging out on all fours just waiting to start crawling. This little guy weighed in at 12 1/2 lbs (1%) and 25 1/2 inches (44%). "Man Cub" is active just like his sister was but loves to cuddle. Beckham has been such a sweet addition to our family.

This is what happens when you are not looking-

This was a new experience for us but, apparently dogs have Birthday Party's too. Sorry Koda, I guess you have been missing out. Here are some pics from "Thor the Dog's" Casino Royal Birthday Party that Garrett and Whitney threw... well let's be honest Whitney threw:)

Yes, Thor even had presents.

We enjoyed a fun visit from our dear friends the Kennedy's (minus Dave)
Someone has to stay home and pay for the girls to have fun...right Dave?

We hit the pool and the beach while Teishi and Amelia were here.

And what would a visit be without Disney Land. I don't know a soul who loves Disney Land more than Teishi. We made it a family affair and had such a fun day. Thanks Dave:)

My hands are always full

Tea cups and under the sea carousel are Gracey's favorite rides

The crew :)

Sunday evening park trip.
Thanks for the visit Teishi and Amelia. See you soon!
