Matt and I went to see Wicked in January. It was such a blast. We left really early for the show so we didn't get stuck in any traffic. We ended up having time to stop in at the fabric district and picked up some pretty fabulous finds! We drove around LA for a while just to get a better look at it. We ate a delicious Italian place we randomly ran into. The show was awesome. It was my first time seeing it and Matt's second. I loved every second of it!

What gets us Through Our Days.

Westin and I don't get to the park nearly as much as we should, especially for how nice it is here year round, but when we go we usually have some sort of ball. I'd say 90% of the time it is a golf ball and club. 

Here I am at 24 weeks

Westin loves the Costco berry smoothies, "special treat". We usually get one every time we shop there and he can down the whole thing. then it make shim cold so we come home and wrap up in blankets. Another favorite of Westin's is his soy yogurt. He always asks for strawberry. I'm glad they have it and that he likes it because what else do you feed a kid with so many allergies?

Vandusens Join Us For the Day.

Justin, Allison, Emily & Lyla came to visit us January 2. We enjoyed hanging out, attempting to get our toes done, a trip to Slater's 50/50 and a bon fire at the beach. Complete with s'mores and foil dinners. We got in some good naps too.

Lets Go Fly a Kite.

Remember the kite Westin got for Christmas? We took it out for a spin New Years Day. Westin loved it but there wasn't any wind so Matt had to run with it up and down the beach. We also added in a bike ride which ended up being pretty chilly. Westin never wants to get off the bike though.

New Years Eve

We sometimes aren't very good about planning our date nights and New Years Eve was no exception. I was texting the Young Women in our ward that morning (during the bike ride) trying to get someone to watch Westin, Logan & Grayson. We decided on an early dinner and then enjoy some food and friends at home, that way our babysitter could go out with her friends too. 
We tried dinner at an Empanada place but it was closed. Major bummer but then we headed out to another favorite place, El Torito Grill. (Much different then El Torito) Dinner was delicious! We headed home to put the boys in bed and to party.

We played a card game then when the new year rang in we headed outside for some sparklers. Trying to write 2012 with the sparklers. For some reason the sparklers weren't working too well so they kept going out before the camera would take.

Everyone had an item of the night. Fondue, sparkling cider, flashlight, sparklers and I'm not sure what Matt is holding.

I think this says Char.

Pretty sure this is where the flashlight came in.

Morning Bike Ride

One major thing we miss about living closer to the beach is being able to hop on our bikes and ride around on the boardwalk. We try to get down there often but since its not an convenient it doesn't happen too often.  One Saturday morning we made it. Westin loves it on the bike and he especially loved watching his buddy Tyrone do some tricks.
