October has been really great! I've been feeling good and making more time for socializing and fun stuff!We went to First Friday in Venice this month with a few friends. Food trucks lined up all along the streets and people waiting in crazy lines for them! Plus there was some night life out and it was fun people watching! Laine found this great old gate for a backdrop and made me stand in front to take a few shots. I was so tired! AND wearing my Awana uniform~
Then we saw crazy stilts man.
He was kinda cool! It was a fun start to our month! We did two weddings this month! First was Cherry's (previous blog) and then last weekend a couple from the church! Laine was their MC! He did a great job!! This weekend we went to the pumpkin patch with some friends!
We did the haunted maze and ate tons of amazing food!! Including a BBQ pork sandwich and funnel cakes.
I've been getting bigger every day! Which is such a good thing! I can't wait till Keane gets here! I'm 32 weeks now and it's just crazy to think we only have a few more weeks to go! All seems to be going well so far, so please continue to pray for a healthy baby and safe delivery when it's time for Keane to arrive! Still have a trip to Redding, 2 baby showers, and a visit from my mom and dad before he even get's here! But I know it will just fly bye! Tomorrow I have another Dr.'s apt and we will continue to keep you posted on how things go!!Love and God Bless xox
What a crazy weekend it was! Friday, we left for San Diego and what shoulda've been a 2.5 hour trip ended up being almost 4 hours!! Right when we were leaving our place it started raining, which is never a good sign! If there's rain, there's traffic! It cleared up when we got to Irvine, but by this time, traffic rush was at it's fullest all the way to our destination. NOT FUN! When we finally got there, I had just missed the rehearsal! I pulled up right when they were finished! So we went to dinner and enjoyed the rest of our time there.
Saturday started at 8:00 a.m. and was a very long day! Our hotel was in this adorable area of S.D. called Little Italy and for lunch, Laine brought me the best meatball sandwich I've ever had in my life from a deli where they pack their own meat! SO GOOD!! After hair and makeup, pictures were at 2:30 and ceremony was around 3:45. It was a beautiful day! NOT KIDDING! One of the most perfect weather days I've seen in a while. Not too hot, breezy and not a cloud in the sky! The location was a beach park in the harbor so there were all these amazing boats around. It was so nice! Here's some of Laine's shots right after the ceremony:
This was one of the three flower girls. She is Cherry's (the brides) niece. She was not happy during the ceremony until the recession, then she was all smiles and playing with bubbles. She was so cute!
I LOVED our bouquets! They were callalillies and orchids and little white feathers! So pretty!!
The other flower girl enjoying the bubbles. She is Bill's (the grooms) niece.
Cherry was and IS so beautiful! He dress was so cute and she was just stunning!
Next we headed back to our hotel for the reception. They had a rooftop set up with cabana's and an amazing view of the ocean! Plus the weather was just so perfect!
Laine got this amazing picture of the sunset. Totally reminds me of the song John Mayer sings called 3x5 only it talks about sunrise not sunset... "shoulda seen that sunrise with your own eyes. It brought me back to life" Ayway, point is, a picture can't capture how beautiful that night was. It was awesome!
The happy couple! Bill and Cherry off to play in the photo booth! It was really fun! They had the photo booth and then used those pics for their guest book! It was so cute!! And a lot of fun!
We got home yesterday morning since Laine had to be at the church by 9:00 a.m. and after a really long day at church, we came home and took a nice long nap, watched the newest transformers movie and then went straight back to bed! We needed the rest!!
Laine just got his new camera last week and here are a few pics that he's been messing around with.
Our sweet little girl. Shes such a princess! Whenever she saw Laine playing with the camera, NO JOKE, she would go straight to him and look at him, or pose, or lay down all pretty!! SO FUNNY!!
Mom, this one's for you. LOVE how chis's in the background with her little tongue sticking out!
Now that we are all rested up, we are getting back to things this week. Laine has to work today and I have a lot of WashingSpot things to take care of. There are a lot more pictures to come with Laine's camera. He's really getting the hang of it and getting some really good shots! I'm so glad we got one!!
This is Laine, Jessica, Keane Kai and Chia's blog. We love sharing some great moments with our close friends and family. love, love ~
