I love…

… being a Mom!


I know it may sound a bit cheesy… but there are times where I stand back and view my life and …. I can truly say… “I am living MY dream.”

As a little girl I dreamed of being a mom one day. And without any hesitation I will tell you that there is no place I would rather be. The chance I have been given to be a mommy to our brood is my most humbling and joyous honor.

This mother’s day… we made a weekend of it. It is no secret that we love San Diego and one of our favorite spots is, of course, the zoo. So we rose early Saturday morning and headed San Diego way.

This was Micah’s first visit and since he is CRAZY for all things animal and furry we knew he would be thrilled. He was!




Micah Jay was sporting his Padres hat and a shirt that says “Jay’s Auto Body Shop.”


Our little baby… getting so big.



Finally starting to tottle. Still prefers crawling. Lil’ stinker. Winking smile


The girls had a great day!



Here is a play-by-play of Micah in the petting zoo.

“Look Mommy! I have a new friend!”

(He was so excited!)


Talking to Daddy about the goat.. as the goat licked his hands…


“WAIT! He’s starting to go!”


“I must catch him!”  ………………………….Thank goodness daddy was there with a quick save.


After our day at the zoo we checked in…


We swam a little. Had dinner and cozied in for the night.

On Mother’s Day…

we had breakfast here…



and it just happened to be free day at the children’s museum next door.

We checked out of our hotel.

Then we put our legs to use and walked over to

Seaport Village.

Then we had a bicycle taxi cart us (stroller and all)

to a familiar old spot…


for some clam chowder , shrimp cocktails and fish and chips.

Then we slowly made our way home along the coast.

My kind of mother’s day!
