Juee, PopPop, and I took the boys to San Juan Capistrano to meet up with our buddies at Zoomars. This is one of our favorite outings. I admit I am not crazy about touching animals (gasp) but I want the kids to be around them. Eli really likes animals so it was fun to see him get excited (and Maia because she LOVES animals)!

I think this means I have three boys....
I thought a sign that contained the words POO was funny!

Aunt E

The week between Christmas and New Years, Aunt E flew out to California for a visit. We enjoyed having her here and getting to show her our new town. We did some shopping, playing, and exploring. Brian also had the week off from work, so it was nice to have some family time! I think my favorite day from her visit was our winery day. We ventured down Rancho California and stopped at a few vineyards. Who knew there were playgrounds at these type of establishments.....we quickly found the perfect table right next to the playground outside and enjoyed a fabulous afternoon. We even joined the wine club :) They also let you bring in outside food for a picnic, sounds like a perfect afternoon to me!

Shooting Hoops

My dad sent our old basketball goal with the TX shipment. He set it up in our new driveway for the kids to play. I think all five boys were pretty excited about this new addition. Brian used to love basketball so much so it was fun to see him and my dad play with the boys!
