No More Suckies

Well, the day has finally come.....NO MORE SUCKIES!!!!! It's official, Ryan and Noah haven't had a suckie in 2 weeks! I started weaning them when we moved. I only allowed them to have them for naps and bedtime. I didn't even let them have them in the car! Then one night they started chewing holes in them and in just a few short days, they all had holes. I saved all of them and they threw them in the garbage and said "bye bye suckie". And that was it. The first night Noah cried for just a few minutes and Ryan didn't even make a peep. The second night there was nothing and on the third night it was the toughest. They cried and asked for them but never again after that 3 night. I am so proud of my babies and SO happy to be done with suckies forever! It's a bitter sweet thing like most of their milestones. Mostly because I know that they are our last babies. But here's to Ryan and Noah's BIG accomplishment.

Loving our new pool

I have to say, now that we have a pool, I don't know how we ever lived without one. It is so nice to be able to just walk in our backyard and enjoy a swim whenever we feel like it. And with the heat these days, this gives us something that we can do outdoors without sweating our butts off! Here are a few Tyler from last nights swim.

Monterey Overnighter!!!

Well this past weekend we took our family to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We had such a great time and the kids really loved being by the beach. No surprise there. We spent most of the day at the aquarium on Saturday and looking at all the sea life. We even got to see the sharks being hand fed in the big tank. We ate at Bubba Gumps for lunch and walked all around Fisherman's Warf that night. The next day we spent running along the beach, playing in the sand and looking for shells and sand dollars. Tyler found 7! Here are a few pics from our adventure.
