Father's Day in Vegas!

We spent Father's Day weekend in Las Vegas. Surprisingly James and I have never actually spent anytime in Las Vegas together. I really wanted to take him to the Hotel at the Mandalay Bay. I stayed here for my bachelorette weekend and loved it. Needless to say, James loved it too. He had so much fun in the wave pool and pushing P and I around the lazy river. My parents were staying in Vegas as well so we spent Saturday and Sunday night with them. It was so nice because they babysat for us both nights and during the day on Sunday so we could enjoy the gym and pool. Hallelujah! We ate at Chef Bobby Flay's restaurant Friday night (James's favorite), Mario Bottali's restaurant and the Paris hotel's Mon Ami Gabi. We also got tickets to the Beatles Love Cirque de Soleil show which we've both been dying to see. It was awesome btw. All in all it was a fantastic weekend and we wish we could have stayed longer.P gettin ready to go poolside

James got to spend his very first Father's Day in Vegas! Yay James!

We bought this raft for Penelope and boy are we glad we did. Its too hot in Vegas to have the little ones outside without being in the water. This way she also had some shade. We took her in it at the Mandalay Bay's lazy river too, it was so cute!

We had dinner here one night and it was so nice because we got to sit outside and watch the Bellagio fountains from across the street. The food was so good too. We had filet mignon with merlot butter on top. Yum!!!

We decided to take the Eiffel Tower ride, its worth it for the view!

Lotus Land

Thursday Penelope and I and a couple of our other favorite mommies- Cherise and Tammy- went for a tour at Lotus Land in Montecito. This is a beautiful estate that is also one HUGE garden! We ended up getting our own private tour which made it nice since things can take a bit longer with the babies and their different schedules. This was such a relaxing day, after we went to lunch at Montecito Cafe. Yum!me and P with Tammy and Graham- Cherise and McKenzie


Grandma's Bday

This weekend we celebrated Nana Juli's birthday. We had a delicious brunch at Andersons Bakery followed by a little shopping. Happy Birthday Juli!


P turns 7 months!

Penelope turned 7 months old today! Her uncle Jason came over and they had a great time hanging out. Happy Birthday P!


Marina del Rey

My brother Eric and sis-in-law Linda just moved to Marina del Rey. They are living in the cutest apartment right on the marina there. We went for the weekend and had such a nice relaxing time lounging at the pool, watching movies and strolling through Venice. P even went for her first real swim in the pool!Eric and Linda
