girls trip to the beach

We started a new tradition with my best girl friends this year - girl's weekend! This year we spent it at the beautiful Imperial Beach (compliments of my bro and sis-in-law and their beautiful condo - thanks guys!). Bekah and Russ, Lacee and her mom Laurie, and me, my mom and Emery were all in attendance, though we missed our Maggi... the glue that holds the rest of us together. We love our "Mama Maggi"! The trip featured yummy food, a beautiful view, talking, movies, no makeup or flat irons, boogie boarding and the best part - just being together! That's one thing that makes growing up stink - we don't all live around the corner anymore. I'm really so blessed to have such amazing girl friends. All 4 of us - Maggi, Bekah, Lacee and I - feel so lucky to have childhood friends that we're still so close with. I don't know what I'd do without my girls!

my first day at the crag

Yesterday was my first day rock climbing outside at the crag! For those of you babies who aren't rock climbers like me, "the crag" is the place where you go climbing. I went to Red Rock with mom and dad now that we're moved to Las Vegas for the summer and we had all sorts of adventures... including a peculiar bug bite in my diaper area that mom and dad aren't sure where it came from. I did all sorts of fun things like sleep, eat, get naked because it was really hot (something I've done a lot since I've been here - I don't like the heat much), meet an old German climbing bum who lives in his van and get a flower from my daddy. It was a great day. I'm not sure what mom and dad did, but maybe the pictures below will explain. :)

Food and mommy make me happy

Do you like my adventure hat?

Naked... ahhh... :)

Thanks for the flowers, daddy!

One happy climbing family... and one exhausted climbing baby. Climbing is hard work.

Life is good!

P.S. For those of you keeping tabs on my fat stats, at my 4 month appointment last week I was 13 lbs 14 oz, 24.5 inches and my big head was 42 centimeters. :)
