Weekend round up....I'm back again edition!

Back to our weekend roundup where I can reminisce on of fun filled pack of days with all my kids and hubby and where I can hopefully give you all some ideas for family fun trips.

We started off as we often do with all four kids sharing pizza on a picnic in the backyard...before we shuttle Bella over to ballet.

Not before our rascal scared us with a lil crafting of his blonde locks during craft time.
Saturday morning after we dropped Bella of at her musical theater rehearsal and Johnny at his band rehearsal we took advantage of taking the lil ones to a trip the bigs ones maybe wouldn't enjoy as much.
The Huntington botanical gardens and library in Pasadena.
The kids were free but adults are 23 each!
The kids garden was cute....but  I felt but could have been much better!
It was however a breath taking day.
The boys loved it.
The garden house was adorable
Lots of running 

A lil mama break
Daddy break
And after a long nap...jacuZzi time...
Sunday morning we visited the long beach antique market aka my Shangrila!!!!
Such a cool place...more like a museum!

And a certain lil someone got a lil treat...
Beautiful beads...

And what better way to wrap the weekend up then with a beach trip.

The Huntington gardens were beautiful bit on my mama scale of 1 to 5 I give it a 2. A lil to pricey for not a lot of oooos and ahhhhhs. But...I love taking the kids to new places and appreciate the beauty around us.

Let's try this again

Tonight I tucked my daughter in bed...she asked me to stay with her until she fell asleep.
I realized my beautiful one and only baby girl although was quickly transforming into a gorgeous confident young woman right in front of my eyes was still a scared lil girl that needed her mommy.....and I guess I have these nifty lil earthquakes to thank for that.  And as I layed there stroking her big fluffy curly mane to sleep in the room she so sweetly shares with her two little brothers and next to her heavy metal listening brother I soaked up the sounds of three lil beautiful sets of lungs breathing as they slept with the faint blare of the teenagers music playing softly in the background in the next room over and my husband clanging pots as he cleaned the kitchen after a perfect Saturdays evening celebration .....I simply thank God for all his blessings.
