Packing Up.......

ok- here i am now running around getting the bags packed and ready. Doing the final load of laundry before we depart. Do we ever feel like we're not forgetting SOMETHING? I know, we're only gonna be gone for 4 days but thats a long time away from home and with kiddies, you never know what you may need, right? We're taking a big ice chest full of drinks and waters and snacks like fruit cups and granola bars which we're gonna take into our hotel room and into the backpack that E will carry around during our big outings. Tomorrow morning we leave here and are going straight to the san diego zoo for the day, then we'll check into our hotel and wed we're going to hang out and do some walking around and go down to the beach and stuff , thur is sea world (kaylee cannot wait) and friday is our hornblower harbor tour on a big boat and the sea lion adventure, some more sightseeing and walking around the balboa park area and then we will head for home..... We have our week cut out for us, but we are gonna have FUN!!!!!! I will have many pics to share when we return and some much needed rest, I'm sure. Sunday is J's birthday so we will do something for him on his b-day but we're not having his pool party for another couple weeks. this year we're gonna combine their b-days and have one huge pool party at their papa's house! since K's b-day is in Aug and J's in July, it's not gonna be that big of deal! plus we had a grad this year and our vacation and money doesn't grow on trees, did you guys know that? well, i must get busy and check on my laundry and get finished up with packing! Hope all have a great week and I will update and check in on all of you when we return!

A few updates........

Summer is definitely in the works here in So Cal. The heat is on the smell of BBQ is in the air! The kiddies are already browned and spend every second they can in the pool! I have been so busy lately that I am about a week behind on my updates! I will not be blogging next week because we will be on vacation~ YEAH!!!! I cannot wait to get out town! I will have many updates and pictures from our trip when we return next weekend! Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far and now I must go and buzz J's hair! He does not want me to but school is out and it is hot! He'll like it when I'm done!

Becca's graduation party went great. She got lots of cash and gifts from all of our friends and family! Thanks to everyone who came and to those that helped me out in bringing a dish. I really appreciate it. She already spent most of her money on her new ipod. That's what she wanted to get if she got enough dough and she did! We had a lot of fun and after most everyone left, some good friends of our family (who we don't get to see very often cause they live out of town) stayed later and we danced and talked and laughed and really had a good time! I still can't believe that I now have a soon to be daughter in college.
J had his end of the season pizza party and the team had fun playing video games and receiving their trophys. Another season gone and next season he will be moving up to the next league so he'll be in the minors! It doesn't seem like he has been playing for 4 years already. Gosh, I remember back 4 years ago whe he started and was just a little guy playing T-Ball! He is growing up too quick!

I am so proud of her and her accomplishments! She had worked very hard in achieving all that she has and for that I am PROUD. I cannot believe that I have a daughter that has graduated High School and will be starting COLLEGE classes in the fall. People always say, "There's no way YOU have a senior in high school, you're too young." And technically, they are correct. When I was Becca's age, I was toting around a baby carrier with her in it. (her biological father has never been a part of our lives) I had to go back and finish a few of my HS credits at adult education and they let me bring her with me every week when I turned my work in. We have had a long hard road, but with a lot of help and support from my family in raising her when she was little and I was so young, she has accomplished a major step in her life that I will always treasure. ( this actually makes me proud of the both of us)
I must thank my honey, Eric cause he stepped up to the plate 8 years ago and has been a dad to her ever since. He has taught her everything about softball and has coached many of her teams. Her love of sports comes from him. She has called him her step-dad for years now and that is really neat to me!
Gosh, I am becoming more and more emotional lately. I think it's cause I'm getting older, I don't know.
So here are some pics from Becca's days and from her graduation last night. It was very nice and I am still wondering where the time goes.......cause it sure does go fast.

Where Does The Time Go????

Probably a question we ask ourselves EVERYDAY. I am experiencing Graduation this year more than ever. I have my oldest baby girl graduating High School and my youngest baby girl graduating preschool. (WOW, WHAT A STRETCH, HUH) I am amazed at the pictures that I have found lately. (Life before DIGITAL, huh?) It seems like I have been going through and scanning pictures for a good couple years now, although it's only been a few days. I have actually teared up more than ever lately. (yes, me, TiTi, I had tears come to my eyes) I want to thank Heather for my post and video from the boys today, THAT WAS JUST WHAT I NEEDED!!!!!!
Kaylee had her Preschool graduation ceremony today, it was absouletly adorable. I took many pictures and the once I got home, I was thinking back and WOW, I asked myself, where has he time gone? I went through some pictures and couldn't believe my eyes..... I hope you enjoy the collages I am posting below and just so you all know, I am feeling JUST a LITTLE OLD LATELY.
(GOSH, look at how Kaylee has grown up,
She is my Angel Baby! )
