Kameron's 1st Las Vegas Trip

We went to Las Vegas for a few days. It was our Godson Evan's 3rd birthday and it was time to visit some friends and family and have a getaway. We stayed at the Rio, as we always do, since I always get comp rooms. (Guess that means we gamble too much!?). Konnor enjoyed the hotel room. He's become very fond of "hotels" lately since we've stayed at many hotels for our trips. He enjoyed taking a tour of the newly remodled RIO Suite.

We enjoyed time at the pool in the 100 degree+ weather.

I also was pampered with a spa treatment and facial at the wonderful spa. (Late birthday present from Hubby). We also spent time on the strip as tourists. We visited the Palazzo, The Venetian, Planet Hollywood and South Point. Of course we gambled here and there too. :-)
Best of all we spent time with friends and family!!!!

Knotts Soak City 7.22.08

Since Julian was spending a few days with us at our house w/Mama & Papa, we decided to take the boys to a waterpark. We went to Knotts Soak City in Chula Vista. It was the first time I had been there in all my years living in San Diego.
The boys LOVED it. The weather was the waterpark was perfect. I loved watching Konnor enjoy the water. Even Kameron had a good time!

Julian's Kindergarten Graduation

Today Julian (my nephew) graduated from Kindergarten! The boys and I attended this special day, along with Mama & Papa DeSoto. It was so cute to see the kids these days. I can anticipate the day my boys enter into the life of "school". And once they graduate from only goes by faster and faster. Nevermind...I don't want my boys going to school! LOL

Congratulations Julian! We love you!

"I wanna be a rockstar"

Ok, so we've noticed how musically inclined Konnor is. He's had a guitar, a keyboard and microphone, a harmonica, maracas and the one thing he kept asking for was a drumset! As cute as I thought it would be...I wasn't ready to tolerate the noise. Well...I finally gave in!! Well, more so we decided to let him have one because we're keep seeing how interested he is in the drums. We also rewarded him for his efforts in the potty training adventure! So for the first day he played for 4 hour straight! That's right...I couldn't get him off the drums! Thankfully they are not as loud and annoying as I thought it would be. Or maybe he's not such bad drummer afterall! He has rhythm! And so here he is...the new "Travis Barker" of all drummers....

And of course Kameron being his big brother's biggest fan..he had to join in on his tambourine.

4th of July 2008

We spent 4th of July in Temecula at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park. Thanks to Joan and Leonard who invited us to celebrate with them again. This is our 2nd year in a row celebrating the 4th with them.
Kevin had to work today, so the boys and I made our way out to the park. It was HOT! We didn't head over until around 3pm so I knew it would be crowded. I knew I'd have a hard time finding parking. Sure enough we got there and most of the parking lots were full. I decided to go into the parking lot closest to the park and I was lucky! I found a parking and didn't have to park on the street and haul the boys up and over the hill!
Here are the boys cooling off. Konnor had to take his shirt off and spray himself with the water spritzer.

And here they are watching fireworks!! Kameron loves them! Though not his first time watching them. He has seen them at Sea World as well on two different occasions.

Konnor at Sea World

We spent the day at Sea World while Daddy was at work. We all love SW so much we can hang out all day long. We played in the Bay of Play. Took pictures with Elmo and Zoe. We watched the Riptide danceshow twice! Konnor loved this show so much because they had a drumline and dances. Two of his favorite things. He's been asking us for drums for awhile now. He really shows interest and talent for them as well. As we watched the show, this is what he did....
