San Diego

For our ten year wedding anniversary we took the kids to San Diego where we went on our honeymoon. We had so much fun going to the beach, seeing the temple, and
walking around Balboa Park.

The San Diego temple

Our three beautiful flowers in the gardens of the temple.

Annika wasn't too excited about having an adventure looking for sea creatures in tide pools and caves!

Nathaniel was on the hunt for sea creatures. We found crabs, sea anenomes, mussels and saw someone catching lobsters. Nathaniel and Liesel loved it!

Elora was thrilled with the ocean!

A big wave unexpectedly came up and soaked Liesel and Annika!

Liesel laughed and kept playing.

Annika cried and wanted to go home.

Happier on solid ground

When asked what her favorite part about San Diego was, Annika replied, "Going to sleep at the hotel."

Nathaniel is Eight!

Nathaniel was baptized on August 18th . We are so proud of him.

Elora ate a cherry and painted herself with the juice. She is so creative!

Elora's First Birthday

What a fast year it has been! Elora is our sweet one year old now! She is full of love and energy!

Elora got her first baby doll. She is so sweet with it. She loves to giver her doll hugs and kisses and push her in the doll stroller. The other day she climbed into the stroller with the doll. Apparently she thought is was pretty fun until she realized she was stuck and began to cry. It was pretty traumatic for her!

Annika's 3rd Birthday

Annika's Nursery teachers brought her these balloons on her birthday. She carried them around all day singing Happy Birthday to herself.
For Annika's Birthday celebration we took the kids to a jungle gym. It was a fun place for the older kids but poor Annika was pretty scared of the dark tunnels.

Springtime Fun

Nathaniel is enjoying playing socccer!

Oh no! Elora discovered the joys of chocolate (dark chocolate in fact!).
The Kids have been helping with Spring yard work. Here's Liesel pretending to be a tree!

Daddy is just like a big toy! So much Fun!

Annika absolutely loves going to the park three times a week to play while Nathaniel has soccer!

Elora is working on getting her teeth. She has the two incisors on the bottom and one canine and one incisor on the top. Her gums look like swollen popcorn kernels ready to burst! She has been so restless at night. Whenever a tooth pops through it is such a relief!
