Tim and Sarah's baby shower

I am so darn excited to be an aunt again! This fall I have 2 new nephews on the way and I can't wait to hold them. Saturday Sarah's parents hosted a BBQ/shower for nephew #1. (The other new baby is on Jeremy's side). Aside from a ton of gifts, the new babe now has more Dodger apparel that Tommy Lasorta! Please note in the pics how beautifully my boys express their love for one another. Lovely!

Day at the park

Today we celebrated our twin cousins' birthdays at a wonderful park in Lakewood. The boys loved climbing on the trees and walking through the "jungle" (a path that had a bunch of ferns). It was so fun to visit with all of the Portillo relatives. Happy
1st birthday Anthony and Brandon!

Vacation Bible School

It has been a while since I posted on here. We've been without a camera for a couple of weeks. I had left our Canon on the counter along with some toiletries from the market of which I was being too lazy to carry upstairs. Gavin decided he wanted something from one of the upper counters and climbed up on the counter spilling a bottle of shampoo. No big deal I thought and just mopped up the mess. Well, come to find out the shampoo had seeped inside the camera! :( So we had to go get us a new camera. I copied my friend Shannon and got a cute little Nokia which was put to good use this evening.

Gavin ended a week long VBS with dinner and a little musical performance. It was so cute. He really enjoyed himself, especially all the arts and crafts. They had a pretty hip music lineup which Gavin was enthralled with. He asked me when HIS daddy could go up on stage and play guitar and when HIS mommy could go sing. I started to say "when &*%# freezes over," but figured church wasn't really the place to say that. Gotta love this age. Still too young to understand that mommy can't sing a lick and that daddy's air guitar is much better than his real one.... HA!

I survived!

My first week back that is. The first week of kindergarten is over. It's always the hardest one. I have been blessed though.... a sweet class. Hooray!
