For New Years this year we decided to go to San Luis Obispo and spend it once again with our friends Steve, Melissa, Troy and Becky and their kids Kadence, Kassidy, Emma, and Tessa...yep our boys were surrounded by girls. :) But they had a great time and being in San Luis Obispo was a ton of fun. We adults even got to go out on a date night with the help of a baby sitter and Ryan's parents watching our kids. We really were thankful for their help as we had not all gone out without kids in over 4 years. So it was great!!!! Then after New Years we stayed for another few days so that I could celebrate my birthday in the pretty (SLO) :) We had such a wonderful time as we spent time with our boys, took them to the Children's Museum, and then the boys hung out with Grandma and Pa again so that we could have a birthday Date Night. We went shopping at the outlets, went and had dinner at Farmer's Market (extra yummy) and then Ryan took me to Apple Farm for dessert. It was a great day and I will share some of those fun Children's Museum pics in the next blog.

My boys were of course getting down and dirty in the sand...just how they like things
Happy little sand monster
Jake had too much fun with this boat...knocking any sand castles down in his sight
With a break in the action the boys got to make Gingerbread men with their Grandma and Pa
Both boys helped put candy on and decorate them
AJ was very curious about the whole thing
Everyone studying the box for inspiration
After making a Gingerbread boy (who we were told was Jakey) Jake wanted to make a Gingerbread girl (who Jake decided would be mommy) :)
Two cute little cookies
Hope you all had a great New Years!!!
