This weekend we took the kids to Disneyland and what a blast! Noah has technically been there before...I was two months pregnant with him the last time we went, but this time he got to ride in person!! I was pretty surprised that even Audrey got to ride most of the rides. This trip was all about doing fun kid stuff, we only rode two adult rides, and our day was completely filled up! The park was decorated Halloween style, Noah loved looking at all the pumpkins.

I just love his funny face.

Sitting pretty in Minnie's house.


As part of our trip to California we decided to spend a little time at the beach. We went to Huntington to play in the sand and splash in the waves. Noah had a blast!!! And Audrey was such a trooper.
Audrey LOVED the sand. She didn't make a peep when it cooled off and got really windy.
We weren't planning on going swimming, but with a two year old "just get your toes wet" doesn't work too well!

NASCAR Truck Races

Checking out the fast cars!!! He was in heaven!

He did really good during the whole race. I was a little worried the he might get bored or want to go.

Where's Noah?????

At the very end of the race...we're talking the last 2 laps everyone was standing up and cheering, wanting to see a good ending. Well, we sure got one...Bryan looked around and said "Where's Noah?!!!!!" Panic like I've never felt before. Instantly my heart was racing!!!! I looked all around where we were standing then took off down the stairs to the nearest portal/exit. Bryan went to the other side and up the stairs. I wanted to check the exit (if he did get to an exit) so he couldn't get any further away. Frantically looking around all the people leaving, remember this was the end of the race and some people like to start hiking it to their cars before the "big" crowd leaves, so there was a good amount of people I was searching through. No I ran back up the stairs to our area. By this time I had tears in my eyes, "I just saw him two seconds ago" "I love that little boy so much, I have to find him." In the mean time Bryan was looking up, thinking that Noah would probably go up the stairs rather then down. As I was coming up the stairs I saw a man holding Noah coming down my side!!! I don't remember even running, but somehow I got to the man in about two seconds! I thanked him and just held Noah. Wow, I can't express the panic I felt in the three minutes he was gone. I'm just so grateful that a caring person found him took care of him.

Water Fun

Noah would play in a sink of water all day if I let him, so I decided he needed a toy one to play with outside. He loves it and Audrey can join in the fun, although the poor girl gets splashed a lot more than she wants!

Isn't she just too adorable?

What kind of kid wants to wrap up in a towl because he's cold in 95 degree weather?????

She did it!!! She's been working on this car forever. She can finally climb in herself and close the door! Now if I could only get her to wash the dishes.....

Just to see you smile....

Yeah, they're diapers.
Noah thinks it's the funniest thing to put diapers (unused, of course!!!) on our heads. So the other night all four of us were walking (well, Audrey was crawling) around with diaper hats.

Future Fireman??

Noah toured a firestation this last weekend and hasn't stopped talking about it! He woke up from his nap one day just going on and on about firetrucks. He was able to see the trucks (the highlight) he watched the firemen dress in their suits, and he even got to hold the you can tell he's not holding on too tightly!

As we were leaving Bryan heard one of the firemen say "That boy was running around like crazy!!" That's our Noah!!!
