Birthday Weekend-Dana Point

Biking on Newport Beach
 I love this man!

 Checking out all the beautiful homes right on the beach
 Ready for a new day
 I have always loved the pier, the seaweed and the lines are so interesting
Heading out for the night, Im afraid we are too old for the nightlife :/

I struggle with her

Poor girl. Her life is so hard lately. I don't know why she struggles so much,  she cant just do what is asked of her, it is simple really. Do what your told, don't do things you know your not suppose to. Why does it need to be a fight every single day. I remember Kase going through a stage like this but this has been her for years. Stubborn. Trouble. Defiant. Unfortunately these are traits that both Justin and I carry. I don't know if this fight will go on with her forever. We spent the morning screaming, and I sent her to school with red puffy eyes. I really don't like to be the yelling , screaming parent but lets face gets the job done a whole hell of a lot quicker when I do. This time she took all of her clean clothes and hid them in her dirty clothes...strike 15. She keeps doing it, and it got to the point that when confronted she would lie through her teeth and tell me the made up day she wore these clean clothes that I just wash and folded. All summer shes been on Landry duty, washing folding and putting away all of our clothes, yet that doesn't seem to matter. SHE STILL IS DOING IT! I have been patient, laught about it, yelled about, punished you name it, and she doesn't care!! So this morning after laying all of her clean clothes out, she was asked to put them all away. 45 mins and a few little power struggles later she is screaming in her head of in her room saying "I am so stupid! Why did I do that...nononononono." It breaks my heart. She is the hardest child, we clash all the time and honestly there are days when I think I really hate her. I don't know how to raise her, how to strear her in a good productive direction. I am just crossing my fingers and hoping she doesn't get knock up in high school and somehow we figure out how her brain works.

Its the eve of my 31st birthday. I have to say that I hate my own birthday. I don't know why, I try to not have expectations. Just try to have a good day but it seems like every year I cry. It is stupid. I am not looking forward to this day. I dont like getting older. It is a reminder of how stuck I am. That no matter how hard I try to change things, nothing seems to adjust in my own life, life seems to being whirling by me...most my friends have made new friends, I don't have time for friends right now, my kids are growing up faster and faster everyday. I cant remember what we even did yesterday, or if I even had a valuable conversation with them. I feel like a failure as a Mom, I work too much, there is nothing to do about that. I just make the best with what time I have with them...or do I? I'm sure I could do more, spend more time, tickle backs, hug, listen to my kids. How do I not have enough time for them, how did life get so busy?
Never less I am 31.

Kambrie @8 Months

Takes her bows off all the time

 Is very expressive and has the saddest cry
but also screams at the top of her lungs when she wants something

Kicks her feet when she is excited
Uses her chunky legs and points toes for balance
Tilts head to the side and smiles

Crawfish Hunting

This has become one our favorite things to do in the spring and fall! 
Their are a ton of them and the water is shallow which makes it easy to catch them. 
We had to ring the whole family out to join into the fun.

 Hi Mac
 Letting Kambrie feel the water
 The cement is covered in moss so its slicker then slick.
 Miss Poser :)
 Their was one bad fall where Mac fell into the water face first and it scared us all to death...he wasn't too bothered. J was sick about it, Scared him to death to see him under water.
