in Santa Barbara...After the wedding we stayed the night in SB and headed to breakfast with the family the next day. Then we ventured down to the beach, where my sister-in-law thought it would be a good idea to try and take some photos of the kids...we should have known better! Well we both did get a couple good ones of our families, but 4 wiggle, jiggle, moving, crying, want to be playing kids was another story, well here is that story!
Our Family picture, not too bad...
Their family picture, not too bad...

Ok, so here is the winner of the day take 45...I think we may have a keeper?! Well at least everyone is there! :)
Scott's cousin gave us a wonderful reason to plan a family vacation this summer. John got married to Stephanie in Santa Barbara...at the Biltmore Four Seasons, no less. We were able to juggle babysitting arrangements for all the cousins between Scott and I, his sister and bro-in-law and his parents. They stayed at the hotel, so we just took over their room for the wedding and the kids swam in style, ate in style and lounged in style at the Four Seasons.
The wedding was beautiful, the bride was gorgeous and the setting was fabulous...here are few photos from the day!
Yes, I am behind...but so much has happened lately! I got to go to Kauai for 5 days in July with just the girls, my friends that is! Daddy stayed home with the kiddos and Kye-Kye came to help for a few days. My good friend got married in Kauai, so my cousin-in-law and I planned to meet there...well I am not so good at flying so my sis-in-law decided to tag along and play in the sun too! We had the best time, drinking lava flows, hanging by the pool, laying at the beach, doing a little sight seeing and enjoying the beautiful wedding! Here are some highlights:

TEETH, finally. I feel like this little one has been teething forever! Her teeth finally popped through last week a little shy of 11 months. She ended up being just like her big sister with the teething. Madison, as well as both Scott and I, didn't get our first teeth until this same time. Nonetheless, here they are!
Madison had her 3rd recital last month. She danced to Rain Drops are Fallin' on my Head... It was the first time she has done tap. It is very cute, the girls did great and she loved wearing her makeup and lipstick! We were able to take some photos before the recital and Scott was able to sneak the camera in to get some photos during the show too! And of course lots of photos after!
My new favorite picture of her!!
The whole class...
Tap, tap, tap
If you look closely...you can see her lovely black panties!
Snapping, she is so happy she can do this!
