On March 12th, Dan and I attended Cookie and Michael's wedding in Los Olivos. It was outdoors at a winery. Everything was perfect.
I loved the long tables!
Dan started the little stunt of taking the lights out of the decorative mason jars and putting them on his head. I tried to stop him!!! It became a trend.
What a beautiful wedding and reception!
After the wedding we went home for just one weekend then came back to California for Spring Break! None of our nieces and nephews plan their weddings around our schedule for some reason. :)
The girls only have birthday parties every other year, so on the off year we do something as a family. Mia chose Legoland. It was a few weeks before her birthday, but who complains when you get to celebrate early! The girls and I were sick from Saturday - Wednesday, so this was the first time we left the house during the break. (Dan was sick at the wedding.)
Happy 8th Birthday beautiful Mia!
We had to take a picture of the ride with her name! She so loves horses!
Anna came down to breakfast and said one day, "When will I be six and a half? Remember, I said I would be brave enough to get my ears pierced when I am six and half." So I looked at the calendar, and I kid you not, it was March 30th, her half-birthday! So we did it that day!
When she decides to do something she is one tough cookie! No crying for this young lady!
Not wanting to be outdone, Mia opted to do it the next night. Well, really she waited until we got in the car in the parking lot and were driving away from Anna's piercing to tell me she wanted to do it that night. I said she would have to wait one more night. It didn't go over all that well, but what can you do?
The next night she brought along Sebastian and Anna to hold her hands. They pierced both ears at the same time. Otherwise, we know she would have only one ear pierced!
She won't let anyone, including herself, change her earrings. She asked me to do it at night while she slept. I was able to change one, but have not been able to change the other without her waking up. So for two months now she has been wearing two different earrings. I heard that's the style now!
Dan and I chaperoned Anna's field trip to the botanic gardens. Such a nice group of kids!
The girls don't get a ton of presents on the years they don't have parties. She loved the Minion Trouble game my dad sent her.
Anna went to her first birthday party for a school friend. They saw Beauty and the Beast and then went out for pizza!
So that was mid-March to mid-April!
