Before Disneyland got too crazy with all the Halloween visitors and Trick-or-Treaters we hit it up a few times at the beginning of the month. I think we will wait until after Halloween to go back.
Grammy got Peyton this hat (which she might wear everywhere) and she loved all the attention she got at Disneyland. So many people thought that the braid was her real hair, which was pretty funny since in reality she is a cotton-headed-ninny-muggins. And her day was made when a little boy just kept staring at her and said to his mom so excited, "she looks exactly like Elsa!"
I also know I failed to mention the little fact that we got a new car (In August)! What?!?!?!?!?!?!? And it's a blessed minivan. I know I am almost 30, with 2 kids, and a minivan. I turn in my cool card, and I am totally cool with it. We LOVE our van and it was a wonderful decision. The only problem is I want another new car now so bad. I hate driving our old car and want to replace it stat. One day.
Wes and I did our typical movie and dinner date in Irvine one night. I know I am lucky to date Bradly Cooper. I joke but I think he got told that like 2-3 times that night alone.
One Saturday afternoon my mom invited all the family to join her at her company picnic at Newport Beach. We went but didn't really know what to expect. It was AWESOME! They had a ton of good food and drinks you could have as much as you wanted. Popsicles, popcorn, and treats. A face painter and balloon maker. A rock wall, and big slide as well as an arcade room. They had games, and bingo with prizes. It was right in the bay so they had kayaks, boats, and stand up paddle boards... which was awesome and so much fun. Plus they had a roped off area for swimming plus a bunch of life vests. We had so much fun!
And like I already mentioned, Miss Peyton got her cast off.
I kept meaning to do a post on this, but for both Peyton's and Asher's birthdays we decided to take the 2 of them to Scandia. We didn't realize how pricey it was and how lame it was going to be and how abysmal the costumer service was. I could go on and on about my annoyance that night, but let me just say I do not recommend it especially if you bring little ones with you... like Jovie. However both Peyton and Asher had a wonderful time, so for that reason alone I suppose it was a success.
We also had some friends come down from Utah so we attempted to hang out with them. They left the beach before we got there so we hung out at Newport for a while and then met them at their timeshare and swam in the resort pool for a while. It was so fun to catch up and meet their cute kids too.
Peyton asked me to take her photo... and how could I resist?
Wes has had a lot of opportunities to golf and was even part of a winning team with a few guys from our ward. Peyton has never been more proud of her daddy. I mean, he did win a trophy.
Had one of the best Friday nights picnicking with pizza and snacks while fishing by the lake at sunset. It was as amazing as it sounds.
