Well its taken me a while but here are pictures from out trip to California.

We drove to Cali from Utah. Our first stop was Reno.. No pics.. not really worth it ;D We left early the next day. We drove to Napa to visit Grandma Betty. It was beautiful! She took us out to lunch and we hung out all day. After we left for our Hotel in San Fran.. Two words.. Nightmare STREETS! We probably drove around 4 times to figure out how to get to our hotel. The GPS kept loosing the signal because of the tall buildings and would turn us around because it didn't know where we were. UG.. But we did get to our hotel. The next day we drove to San Ramon and had a very long over due visit with the Diaz Family! It was wonderful to see them again! I even got to take pictures of Griffin! The newest addition to the Jakovleski Family (Elsa is my cousin) I got to see my Aunts and Grandpa Oscar! I think I was 15 the last time I saw them! I missed them so much! What amazed me the most was that Liam who is usually a little nervous around new people some how knew that they were family, he played with Quentin like he does with his cousins here. He danced with Grandpa Oscar as if he has known him his whole life. It was a very special moment. At least to me :DAfter visiting with them we drove back to San Fran. We spent one more night there then the next morning we drove to Hermosa Beach. We were making really good time so we decided to stop at Hearst Castle! OH MY GOSH it was beautiful! I didn't put any picture of it in the collage but it was just jaw droppingly beautiful! We got to the house on the beach and hung out. The next day me and Patrick went to Disney just me and him. It was a lot of fun we went on all the crazy rides at Disney Park. The next two days the whole fam went to the Disney and the California Park! We made some amazing memories! Liam loved being there! His favorite ride was Pirates he was so enthralled with everything!We had a lot of fun at the in California! I can't wait to go again!

Viva Las Vegas!

Me and Patrick went to Las Vegas. We had a blast! We are both very sore! :D We got to hang out my the pool and enjoyed taking pictures! We both missed Liam very much and were very happy to see him on Monday. An0ther unfortunate thing is that me and Patrick missed Lottie's 2nd birthday! But at least Liam was there and from what I heard he was a big help picking up candy after the pinata. Today is actually Lottie's birthday soooo.. Happy Birthday Lottie!

Oh my gosh!

So March was just crazy, I feel like I'm going 15 different directions at one time! Liam has been such a joy to have in our lives, he has made us very busy! We did get to go to Zions, and it was a blast. The weather was just perfect. It was a little chilly in the morning but by 11 it was just fine! We spent two days doing hikes. The first day we went to Canyon Overlook and Riverside Walk. It literally was just a walk, it leads to the Narrows. The second day we did Weeping Rock and the Emerald Pools. I loved the Emerald Pools! It was a strenuous hike but it was so much fun! Liam looked so adorable in the back back we got! On the Emerald Pools hike he fell asleep before we could get to the Upper Pools. We had our lunch up there and then hiked back down. Also while we were there we stopped by and saw the Mengs! They just had another little boy named Detrick. Too cute!

Also this month Patrick and I went to see Legally Blond, seriously! It was fantastic I enjoyed all the music! Then on the 30th the girls went and saw Fiddler on the Roof. It was very good!

At the end of April Patrick and I will be going to Vegas... to look at things LOL. We wont be able to really do anything but we can do all the free stuff! YAAY Belagio Fountain! I'm quite excited for that. Although we will be missing Lottie's 2nd Birthday party, that does make me very sad!

And May of course is Liam's Birthday! We are going with a "Dirty Jobs" Theme because to be honest, being a Mom, Dad and toddler is a Dirty Job. Thank you Mike Rowe!

June, aww June. I can't wait for June to arrive. We are having the best vacation ever! We are going to see family, beach and of course Disneyland. What could be better. Although I stressed about the planning, I'm very much looking forward to laying on the beach with Patrick and Liam by my side. Liam wont remember this vacation but, its a beginning of a tradition that we will hopefully continue!

Liam's Progress

Liam is doing so well at walk he is now standing up on his own! He love to walk he now would prefer to walk as opposed to crawling. If he thinks he can't stand up on his own he will crawl to the closest location to stand up and walk, even if its out of the way.

We have so many vacations planned this year. Next week we are going to Zion's National Park! I have never been there! So it will be a first for our family. We bought a back back for Liam on KSL and he will be riding in style for the hikes. And don't worry he will be lathered in sunblock lotion and he will be wearing a hat at all times!!

In April we will be going to Las Vegas! This will be Patrick's and Liam's first visit. We wont be doing a whole ton. In fact I don't even know if Liam will be going. Mostly because we will be walking around or doing rides.

In May its Liam's birthday I think we may take him camping, not sure.

In June we are going to Disneyland! YAAY! We will be stopping in San Ramon to see Abuelito, Tia Marta, Tia Trish, and Elsa. I have never her met her hubby or her little one! I'm super excited! And of course DISNEYLAND!!!!!!! I love Disneyland!

(Caution Bragging Moment!) So Liam isn't quite 9 months yet and he is walking SOO ADVANCED! LOL. Now that he is walking, sometimes he tries to run... that doesn't work very well for him but I have no doubt that he will get it.. and soon. Enjoy the video you can defintaly tell he is having fun.
