We had a fun at Disneyland today!  Mommy will post more of our pictures later!  Here are a few of the highlights of our day!

"Today is a gift."  
We had a much better day today!

Amy and Amanda.

Oliver, Mommy and Goofy!

We love all the music we hear at Dinseyland!


We rode on Splash Mountain a lot and learned
how to use a Fast Pass!  Oliver and Mommy went
on the mountain 3 times!

This just makes Mommy laugh!  (Hmmm...)


Radiator Springs!

Back to Disneyland to watch the fireworks and
sit nicely together in a teacup that is displayed!

In awe of the fireworks!

Spooky picture of the fireworks.

Our last ride for the night! 

More Disneyland in the morning!

Special Swim

Tonight we went for a fun swim with our new friend from Ohio, Amanda!  We will be spending the weekend with Amanda and her Mom, Amy at Disneyland!  

Oliver and Amanda got off to a fun start...

Amanda walking into the Y, she reads
Oliver's blog, so some of this might 
have looked familiar to her!


We had a fun swim!

Oliver started to have a bit of a meltdown
here...difficult transition today.  It came in waves.

In the morning, Mommy is going to remind Oliver of the quote posted on a fence off Levante Street (Mommy took him for a drive tonight to calm him down...):  

"Today is a gift."

Donut Wednesday

We've had a pretty quiet week so far!  Another Quiet Donut Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

We must be saving up all of our chattiness, giggles, and screams for DISNEYLAND!!!  (Disneyland, disneyland, disneyland...)  Oliver is off with his Daddy now until Friday at noon.  Mommy misses her quiet little person.

Quiet Monday

We had a nice quiet Monday filled with lots of outdoor play, study time during nap time, and a little nook time.

We are off for a nice quiet time at the library and the Y.  (Happy quiet Monday.)

We had a big celebration today at Grammie and Grandpa's house!  We celebrated Father's Day, Aunt Ali's birthday, Rachel's birthday, Uncle Matthew's birthday, and Oliver's birthday!  We got a jumpy house for the whole day to jump and play in!!!  Everybody loved it!

Happy Sunday!

Before the Party:

Mommy came back from the y and sneaked
up on O and Grammie, just talking away
while Grammie was getting ready!
It was really cute!

Aunt Ali brought her babes over early
so she could go to a baby shower!

Everyone jumped on and off all
day!  Pretty awesome!

Ring A Round the Rosie.

Mommy took Rachel and Oliver to
the library real quick to report!

They did a good job and both were spoiled
with literature goodies after reporting!  Luckies!


What are they looking at....?

Yum, Ice Cream Sandwich Cake!

Aunt Jess found the recipe in the Real
Simple magazine last summer!


Claire wanted some right away!

Jump, jump, jump!

Ashes, ashes, we all fall down!!!

Disney!  Mommy and Oliver are going to 
Disneyland for Oliver's birthday next weekend!!!

Jen and her family stopped by to visit for a 
few minutes!  Aunt Ali went to Jen's
baby shower!  

Sweet hugs!



Watching the gift opening and enjoying the
bouncy house to herself!


Rachel has a vanity table just like her Mom now!


Aunt Jess liked the gift bag she used for
Aunt Ali's gift  (Meow.)

Celebrating More:

Cupcakes for the birthday people!!!

Father's Day Pictures:

They didn't want to cooperate.

Look at Rachel's facial expression.
Wonder who she inherited that look from?

Mommy thinks this picture is silly, but she really 
likes Aunt Ali's face in it.
(Uncle Kelly likes this one the best.)

Celebrating More:
Cake Time!

How does Mommy get in these situations?
Crazy Kids!  (Sometimes Mommy just
doesn't understand.)

Aunt Ali and Oliver were being funny!

Lots of giggles in the bouncy house today!


Mommy hopes that everyone slept like a rock!  Happy Birthdays and Happy Father's Days!
