Today was my Poppi's funeral. He passed away one week ago in Salt Lake City. Spencer and I were able to book a last minute flight to see him before he passed. Those last moments were truly precious. Poppi was a wonderful man who loved watching sports, tending to his garden, and spending time with his family. He will be missed by many, especially us.

California Recap

California was absolutely wonderful; sunny days and warm weather. On our first day we picnicked at the beach. Tori's diet included a yummy peanut butter and jelly sandwich topped with sand. We hit Disneyland on our second day and it was fantastic. The two most common post-ride responses were, "that's fun" and "that's scary." Friday night Tracy and I went and saw Wicked; truly amazing. On Saturday we hit a local petting zoo. Lucas couldn't get enough of the guinea pigs. For our last big hurrah we took the kids to California Adventure. Two thumbs up to the creative think-tank for Disney.

A Be-lated Birthday

My sweet mom celebrated her birthday on Friday. I'm a couple days late due to being on vacation, but I wanted to send her birthday wishes anyway. I hope she had a fabulous day and that this coming year is a special one.

California Vacation

Tomorrow Tracy and I leave with the kids for California. We had been talking about how much fun it would be to go to Disneyland and decided better now than later. So tomorrow morning, 6 am to be exact, we'll be on our way to the happiest place on earth.

Going Grey

I really enjoyed a particular article in my recent issue of Cottage Living. The idea was to focus on serene colors in a little house. The homeowner did this by painting the interior with shades of grey; simple and beautiful.

Baby Booty

We completed our baby regisitries at Target and Babies-R-Us this weekend. Some other things I've been eyeing are onesies from Parade and Tea, a knitted Blabla mini-doll, and a lovely Oeuf baby lounger.
