Going to the Tide Pools and Aquarium

Street Fair
The Beach

and of course, spending a lot of time playing with cousins

We had a wonderful 4 day cruise from LA to Catalina Island and Ensenada. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We realized that the two of us haven't been away together since before we had Gracie. (Thanks to my sister for watching the girls.)We loved staying up late together, sleeping in (one morning Ben slept until 10:30), sight seeing, relaxing, and just being together. It really didn't matter what we were doing we just enjoyed having one another all to ourselves. Many people asked us if we were on our honeymoon. I don't know if it's because we were always holding hands or b/c we look so young.
In Catalina we took a glass bottom boat and saw a lot of fish.
In Ensenada we shopped at the flee market and went to La Bufadora (a famous blow hole). It was funny seeing Ben use his Spanish to bargain at the market. The locals were impressed at how well he spoke.

Spray Tan: What a great alternative!

It's natural
It leaves your skin looking sun-kissed

It has the appearance of air brushed

It's way faster than tanning lotions
If spray tanning seems like such a great idea to give your skin a beautiful sun kissed appearance before your cruise that you are taking with your husband for your five year anniversary, well then...

...think again!!!!
Imagine the surprise
Imagine the looks and stares

Imagine this over all of your skin.
(I'd like to say that this image has been photo shopped, but oh's all natural-if you can say that)

Silly Girl

Gracie has been saying the funniest things lately that crack me up. (I mostly wrote these down for my memory)

M: "Gracie your hair looked so pretty today in french braids. Did you like it like that?"
G: "No"
M: "Why not? Everyone said it looked so cute?
G:"Because I didn't want to have French Braids, I wanted to have French Fries."

G:"What are those people doing over there?"
M:" They're working out"
G:"What does that mean" (obviously I'm a bad example of this)
M:"It means they're getting in shape"
G: "Are they trying to be a triangle?"
