C just showed me a bunch of videos from our old flip camera from Syd's first year and it made me so sad! All the sweet sounds and expressions. Eli as a freaking adorable four year old. And I was beating myself up for not replacing that stupid camera after it got "mysteriously" broken. Then C reminded me about the silly little iphone I carry everywhere that has *gasp* a freaking video camera. Look out Averson! We've got time to make up! Maybe I'll even catch her walking (but probably not.) also, I have to teach her songs. According to Syd's video evidence I've been slacking.

The weather has been so amazing! We've been spending most of our time outside and it is absolutely amazing. I'm building a new tradition of kicking my feet up with a beer and my book after work and it's awesome :) The girls have been running amok in their cars and E is mastering all kinds of ninja skills on the trampoline.

I love this girl so, so much. She is strong and sassy and sweet and so very full of personality and hutzpah. I am so thrilled to see the woman she becomes. I know it won't be an easy journey (remember her hunger strike?) but it will be memorable.
We celebrated with a Frozen party and eight princesses running amok. I offered a beer to one of the moms, who said it "seemed a bit early." I contend that day drinking is totally acceptable if you're feeding more than a handful of four-year-olds a butt ton of sugar and turning them loose. But the party was awesome and Syd had a fabulous time. I'm totally rethinking my stance on parties (but I need to fine tune my planning skills).
C and I both forgot that it was also our eleventh wedding anniversary, so to celebrate I'm day drinking and he's taking a nap. After eleven years we know what works.

Since we got home I keep gleefully remembering that we have no more travel plans for the entire summer. Maybe the apple really doesn't fall far from the tree?
Our passes to Disneyland expire soon and C and and I have decided that we'll renew on alternate years. This came about when we realized what other vacations we could take with the money we've spent on The Happiest Place on Earth.so, knowing we may not be back for a whole year, we decided to Disney our brains out. Y'all, best trip ever! We had so much fun!
