A day at the beach

These pictures are from a whilr back--from the end of May. But they are so cute I HAD to blog them. Ashlyn took them all when she showed Sam and me around Ventura. First we went to a small farmers market. Then she took us thrift store shopping. Here we are outside the store. Sam wasn't that interested.
Then we went to the beach and just watched the waves and the surfers for a while.
Sam was having such a good time! He loves the beach, evidently.
Ashlyn and I were getting a lot of attention with our babies. One cute baby is good, but two is better. People were stopping us to say hi to our cute little ones. Most people thought they were twins, even though there were two moms and we were each holding one baby and Aubree is so much smaller than Sam. Oh, well, it was fun to get the attention. The perfect stranger who took THIS picture somehow got the biggest smile out of Sam I have ever seen!
After all that excitement they were pooped so we had a nice quite lunch and drive back to Ojai! Thanks Ashlyn and Aubree for showing us such a good time.

4th of July/Jared's birthday!

We had a really great 4th of July this year. We spent it in Ojai with Jared's family. We went to the Ojai parade, then went to Steven's baptism (Jared got to baptize Steven and I gave a talk) then we had a barbecue for Jared's birthday. Sam really liked the parade with so many interesting things to look at.
He's very patriotic! He loves his flag
We went to the parade with Kris, Austin and Steven.
After the barbecue Ashlyn had such a good idea! We just laid out black plastic and made a slip-n-slide! It was super fun to watch AND fun to play on.
There's Jared doing his swan slide--so graceful!
This was my favorite picture of the day! I got a couple of great video too, but I can't figure out how to get it to post.
