It's been forever ago! But, I really want to keep things up-to-date on our family happenings! Or, not-so-happenings! That's what August pretty much was like. Kinda boring month for this family! Golden State Surf Co. has been booming with summer busy-ness, which leaves family time to a bare minimum and little pictures to post here! But we do our best to keep things interesting! hehe
I'm so blessed to say, that most of our month was spending time with our close friends and family! LOVE catching up with people over good food and awesome conversation!
And a little randomness, catching a moment of Keane that just melts my heart. He's so incredibly handsome-well, I think so, of course! ;)
Oh man, I just love this! Boys playing "beach" in our tiny apartment with a giant beach umbrella, while torturing Chia! lol. These were most of our days for August! Relaxing times with friends and family! Can't complain, really! haha! God is so good to us!!
A little worship for your day.... great song, and just amazing views of the lake in Redding. Sigh, lucky to say I grew up here. God's creation is beyond amazing.
Sorry for the delay in updates! December was a fun filled month! Keane's birthday, Disneyland and Christmas!!! Our first visit to Disneyland during the holidays! It was magical as ever! My mom came for the fun and brought our niece, Amia!
Ummmmmm, wow! I actually didn't realize this was only going to be about Disneyland, but I guess between all of us, there are a lot of pics! We had such a great time, obviously! Can't wait to go back!!!
I will have to do a separate post for the rest of our fun month!!
My moms camera had tons of great pictures from her visit when Kai was born. Yes, it was a month ago already, but they are such great memories, I have to share!!

My crazy boy at the play area! Working on his ninja/superhero moves!
I know, so many pictures!! But all the more fun to look at my precious family! How blessed we are with so much wonderful people in our lives to pray for us and support us! Now, our family has grown from three to four and a new journey has begun!
How you have filled my heart with so much love, beyond what I thought was possible! Thank you, God, for our precious boys and surrounding family. I pray that we will continue to be good servants with what you have blessed us with and that we will be honoring and glorifying your name through these things!
Sorry for so much talk about our week last week, but that's what happens when we have three cameras involved! These pictures are from Laine's camera. These first few are from his camera for awhile ago.
Well, we had such a fun time!! This was actually my first time to have a one-on-one photo op with Mickey!! Keane seemed to enjoy it too!! hehe!!
Keane is eating solids like a big boy!! He's almost full on crawling! He's got the army crawl down very well! He loves to "crawl" for things he's NOT supposed to have, like the cords next to the television set, or the shoe area. It's so much fun!! Even though I am COMPLETELY exhausted from chasing him around, I absolutely LOVE to see him move to what he's curious about! You can already see his adventurous spirit! His fun and sweet personality shines everywhere we go! He's our biggest blessing!!
Thank you Jesus so much for our baby boy! Thank you for his curious heart, and sweet smile! Lord, teach us how to raise this son of Yours the way You want him to be taught. Give us your wisdom and help us to lead him towards You and nowhere else. In your Holy name~Amen
So I got to upload the pics from my own camera! Keane got to meet a friend of his at church! So cute!! We could be seeing a lifelong friendship here!! ha!
Keane and Jonah meet...
Keane and Jonah play...
Keane plays with Jonah!!
My parents and brother, Casey came to visit this last week for the holiday and to celebrate my birthday. It was so nice to have them here! The visit went way too fast!! Casey was such a big help! And I think Keane loved to have time bonding with his sweet uncle!!
4th of July was so much fun!! We spent the day at the beach with Laine!
The next day we headed to Disneyland!! Keane's second trip there and my birthday celebration!!
A walk through Pixie Hollow
We just had a fun crazed holiday week!! Lots of outtings and celebrating! I have a lot of pictures to upload, but for now, I'm doing the ones from my phone camera! This first picture was a fun one I did since everyone seems to tell us who they think baby resembles more! hehe, it's interesting to hear so many say Laine, but after seeing this picture, you see a lot of me in him!!
For the 4th, Laine had to work at the beach for the day, so we made a family day of it! PLUS, a best friend from junior high and high school came to meet with us!! I haven't seen this lovely face in over 10 years and we had a fun reunion at last!! We had a blast! It's like we hadn't missed a beat!! HAHA!! I think we found our lost friendship soulmates and we have the bonus of living close toghether too!! Can't wait to see my sweet friend again!!
MY BIG 3-0!!! Its here!! Can't believe I'm that old! Mostly because I don't feel that old!! hehe! Most of the girls I know go to Las Vegas for their big day, not me! HAHA!! I go to Disneyland!! We had such a great time!! I have a few pictures from the day and a video clip of Keane's first ride ever!! The carousel!!! He didn't seem to enjoy it as much as I did!! haha!!
The funky face from me was because Laine tried to do a jump off the ride and dropped his sunglassees ;) try to ignore me and just enjoy the sweet baby!! lol
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 just to hold you over till I can get all the pics gathered together and uploaded! But this can give you an idea of what our awesome weekend was like! Lots of fun time with Lindsay and Landon!! Not to mention a great day at DISNEYLAND! A first for Keane! Wish I could say it would be a day he would never forget, but
he slept through most of it. HA! He'll have plenty more chances to enjoy it since his mom LOVES it there!! ;)
I can't promise that I'll have all the pics up soon, so I may do a few at a time since I have multiple camera's that we used! Stay tuned for more to come...
This is Laine, Jessica, Keane Kai and Chia's blog. We love sharing some great moments with our close friends and family. love, love ~
