Going Back to Cali

Sorry it's taken me an eternity to post again! For some reason I go through spurts where I feel like I'm so busy that I can't keep up with everything. When that happens, I get WAY behind on the blog! Anyway, we had a great trip to California and really enjoyed the cabin trip and seeing our good friends the Radcliffe's, Brower's, Checketts' and Thompson's again. I had fun, despite the fact that I was extrememly sleep deprived and therefore a bit cranky! Ezra had fun playing with the Brower's little girl Audrey and when the Thompson's brought their new baby Audrey up too it was just a house full of dirty diapers and sweet baby smiles.

After the cabin we headed south to LA for the Dodgers Home Opener. Ever has been going with our friend Mike Wilcox for the past 4 years and has been looking forward to taking Ezra ever since we found out we were going to have a baby. This year I got to go too and Mike's brother 'Q' came along also. We ate at Phillipe's first (a sea of Dodger fans) and then were off to batting practice and the game! Dodger's won 5-0, no doubt because Ezra brought them good luck!

The next day we got to do something that I'd been looking forward to- Disneyland! It was a blast! Ever's mom got to go with us and witness Ezra's first trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! He had a lot of fun watching all the kids and we of course had a lot of fun watching him. He got his very own pair of Mickey Ears and looked pretty darn cute in them if I do say so myself! We can't wait to go back!

The last day of our trip I go to see my best friend Lori and do some shopping at Babies R Us (still a favorite hang out) for Ezra and her soon-to-arrive bundle 'Guido.' Ever and I also got to take Ezra to Barnes and Noble, one of our other greatly missed hang outs, and he got some fun new books to take home; his favorite is now "Ten Little Tadpoles" with the pop-up frogs at the end!

We always enjoy California and hope to be back again soon! Enjoy the pictures, we took a ton and believe it or not, these are just a few!

Ok I didn't know you knew the Thompsons?! I know Kyle's sister Kelly! AND I am sad we didn't get to see you! We have Disneyland passes so that would have been a blast! I am glad you got to see Ever's mom though. I love the Dodgers pictures and how classic you all have uniforms! What die hards you all are! Glad they won!

I love how intently Ezra is checking out Minnie! It was so fun to see you guys - wish Audrey & Ezra lived closer so they could play more often - they were adorable together!

Hey Ever!

Not sure you would remember me but I came across your info on the NYNY Alumni Website and thought I'd drop you a note. It's Dave Gourley from the ol' Anderson pad. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and tell you how exited I am for you and your wife having your cute little son recently. We actually just had our first as well. We are LOVING every second of it. Our blog is http://thegourleygang.blogspot.com . Check it out if you have a second and I'd love to hear from you.
