Our summer has been filled with family fun! And that's pretty awesome since we don't have very much family close by! The first week of July we spent time with Auntie Lindsay and cousin Landon! We got to spend an evening at Castle Park and ride some rides! It was very fun!
Our 4th has to be the best one I've had in a long time! We started with a late breakfast, then play time at the park with the frisbee and soccer ball! Then to cool us off, we had shaved ice!! YUMMY!!! That night, we met up with Auntie Lindsay and cousin Landon to watch a fun game of soccer at the LA Galaxy field and ended with a fun fireworks show!
My birthday was so wonderful! I loved being able to spend it with our sweet family! We had been able to spend some time with Auntie Lindsay and cousin Landon at Knotts Berry Farm before they had to jet back to home in Hawaii! Keane LOVES his cousin and Auntie!! And was very sad to have to say goodbye! Hopefully we will see them soon!!
You don't hear this very often from a mother with a toddler, but I LOVE going to Vegas with my family!! The family time we get to spend there is nothing but great memories and lots of fun! There's so much to do and see and don't even get me started on the food! OH THE FOOD!!! Nothing but wonderful food everywhere we go!!! sigh....
Anyway, here's some pics of those wonderful times we had!
Thank you Auntie Lindsay for the Cars Lego set! HE LOVES IT!!! And it was great to have some toys at the hotel!! He still carries his cars with him all the time!
Wow! I did it again! Another month just flew by and I barely got any entries in!! This last month has mostly been about getting business done! And I mean DONE! Well, we can get into that on another day.
As I look back, this time last year seemed to sound pretty much the same as it does now. Lots of running around, preparing for a fun winter ahead, and cleaning up after a crazy filled summer! LA is extremely hot in August! And the heat is so draining!! Check out my sleeping beauty.
We do enjoy Skype-ing with the family! Amia and Keane got to chat recently! They are turning into the best of friends. I LOVE to hear my nieces' little coo's!!!!
I am just gonna say it... I'm a Twilight fan!! Totally not ashamed! I had a twilight marathon party a couple weeks ago. It was really fun!!! We relaxed and ate tons of food and chatted as we watched almost 12 hours worth of teenage vampire drama! It was great! I did a little decorating, but went for more of a romantic vibe instead of the typical gothic feel of vampire movies.
Despite the fact that we are so far from both sides of our families, that doesn't stop Keane from getting plenty of fun things from them!!! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Furukawa for all the fun books!! And to Aunty LindsayAnn and Landon for the polar bear book! It's Keane's new favorite!!
Keane is now 21 months old!! Can't believe how fast he's growing and just getting older! We are cherishing every moment before it all just fly's away. What a sweet blessing to have such a wonderful, healthy baby and family.
Labor Day is around the corner, stay safe friends and family!!
P.S. A fun "Friends" clip to keep a smile on your face!
Our Valentine's day was pretty chill! We busted out Keane's present as soon as we woke up! Laine couldn't wait to give Keane his first ever basketball hoop!! The cool thing is ever since Keane started walking, he's loved bouncing balls! Now he can practice setting a new baby world record of baskets ;)
Anyway, we chilled for the rest of the day. Laine had to work, so Keane and I made him some valentine's to give when he got home. We went to the park came home and had dinner, a movie and fresh homemade cookies! Sounds like a perfect day to us!!
Now, a fun little Friends clip. *sigh** I miss my Friends... hint, hint****
A special Valentine's Day wish to our family in Hawaii! We miss you guys so much!! Grandma Faye, Grandpa Ken, Uncle Bren, Auntie Linz, Cousin Landon, we love you guys and wish we could celebrate together. We hope you have a blessed day!!
Last weekend everything seemed to happen all at once!! Keane and I got to go to my girlfriends baby shower on Sunday! Then we headed straight over to our church annual picnic where... SURPRISE! Lindsay, Landon and Brendon were waiting for us!! We knew they would be visiting, but I was so happy to get to see them on Sunday night!!
We took a little family day while Linds, Lan, and Bren were here to go to Hurricane Harbor! Keane's first time in the swimming pool!! He hated it!! lol!! The water is actually pretty cold and he was so uncomfortable in the life vest they made him wear in some of the pools. But, we still enjoyed the time there! It was so fun. Made me feel like a little kid at the water park!
We are so incredibly blessed to have such great family!!! LOVE YOU GUYS!! xox
These are the pictures I uploaded from my camera, Laine's pics will be up soon! So Keane got to meet his Aunty Lindsay and only cousin, Landon this weekend! We had a lot of fun with them! Saturday we did Disneyland with them and Sunday they came to Washing Spot to see the shop and Chia! It was really nice to spend some time with them.
This is Laine, Jessica, Keane Kai and Chia's blog. We love sharing some great moments with our close friends and family. love, love ~
