My silly little woman...

Ashlyn is a total goof ball, just like her mama. Go look at all of the silly faces over at my photography blog. The quality is better, the pictures are bigger and there's more than just this one.

The 4th of July...part two. :0)

After our fun day at the Del Mar Fair and the parade (sorry no pictures..I was at home with Ashlyn for her nap) we then decided to sweat our butts off and hiked up Twin Peaks Mt. with the Gharsts and another couple of friends to watch the fireworks. It was a fabulous evening watching several sets of fireworks from near to far.

One of my all time favorite pictures for sure...Rob and the kids and my best friend and her family. So bummed that I'm not in it. :0(

Smores..a delicious surprise provided by my wonderful dessert loving friend, Allison Gharst. :)

I'll be the first one to admit that I know next to nothing regarding the art of shooting in the dark. Next year I'm going to knock your socks off with some fireworks pictures (or at least I hope I will), but for now here's my measly attempt. :0)

The 4th of July...a day of firsts

We raced around like maniacs on the 4th of July. Cruised over to the Del Mar Fair in the morning. Raced home to drop Jaedyn and Dad off for the Rancho Bernardo and then busted up Twin Peaks Mountain for some smores and fireworks. It was a super fun day, but to say that we were exhausted is an understatement.

Jaedyn and Ashlyn went on their first horse/pony rides...

These food items should be illegal...

We went on our first ferris wheel ride per Jaedyn's idea. I'm pretty sure this will be my last. Between the height and the rickety metal structure let's just say Rob and I were a little uncomfortable.

Jaedyn and Ashlyn had their first taste of cotton candy. They both liked it although at first Ashlyn was quite skeptical because of its fuzziness. $5 later for a small bag and a mouth full of cavities and we can check that experience off the list.

We took a double decker bus back to our car. I thought the small amount of Ashlyn's fuzzy little hairs were going to blow right off her head!

A tast of frozen yogurt

Sadly, Rob and I both forgot our 13th anniversary last week. 13 years, can you believe that?! So we celebrated the following night with a little trip to Golden Spoon for some frozen yogurt!

Lake Poway w/ the Beatles

We headed to the annual Beatles cover band concert at Lake Poway a couple of weekends ago with our friends. We did some picnicking as well as some serious boogying. It was a blast. Our favorite 50's cover band, The Corvettes are coming up at the end of July so more dancing pictures to come!

This picture above kills me. Apparently not everyone is familiar with ear protection.

This woman with the dog was a total nut. She tortured her dog with her dancing skills for most of the songs and thought Jaedyn (who is allergic to dogs) and Ashlyn would love to also dance with her dog.
