October 2011

Oct 5- 14 weeks pregnant photo. Showing much sooner with #3. ;)
Oct 8- Ed and I wanted to do some apple picking with the family and a few others were interested as well. We headed to Gizdich Ranch for a delicious lunch and then picked some apples. Fun fall activity.

Apples right off the tree!


Oct 12/13- Ed had a work conference in L.A. so we decided to make a family trip out of it and visit the Katz's while he was gone during the day.
We met up with Kristen in the morning for a delicious breakfast and then went to the beach with the little ones. Such a fun reunion. Sarah and Sydney gave some adorable hugs!

Oct 14- After more delicious breakfast, we took the kids to Disneyland for the day.
Lots of people looked at us like we were crazy taking on 5 young children between the two of us. We were. ;)

The kids and us were definitely worn out by the end of the day. It was pretty crowded and SUPER hot!!

So fun to get away for the weekend and reunite with such great friends! We put the kids down at Kristen's that night and got a sitter and went out to dinner with Kristen and David at a Venezuelan Restaurant and played games at the hotel.
