Up to Lately

Here's a little bit of what we've been up to these last few days:

Last Wednesday, my neighbors and I loaded up our kiddos to make the hour drive to Hobby Lobby. We've all been wanting to go so we decided to give it a try with our 4 toddlers in tow.
We had a lot of fun and were able to get some cute stuff.
We also stopped by my favorite restaurant from home, Rosa's. We ate lunch there and I brought fajitas home for dinner. It was SO yummy.
Emerson was exhausted from all of the fun and passed out in the car on the way home. I put her on the couch where she slept for about 45 minutes. Then she got up, walked around for a minute and passed out on the floor just like this.
Saturday was a big day because Jesse made his first trip out of the house (besides his doctor appointment) since his surgery.  We marked the occasion with dinner out and a trip to Target.

She was really enjoying her baked beans!

Our trip to Target was definitely different than any we've taken before.

We didn't stay very long but it definitely felt good to get out of the house as a family.

One of my first friends I made in San Diego moved here with her husband to plant a church. Yesterday was their first preview service. As you know, we've been visited 3 different churches on several occasions and still haven't found "the one." I am so glad we decided to visit their church yesterday because the first service was awesome!! We can't wait to go back next week.

Other than that we've done lots of playing, movie watching, bath taking, and just hanging out.

 (Glow sticks in the bathtub were a big hit!)

I've also been sewing and embroidering quite a bit. It's been a fun little stress reliever and I'm excited to be building up Emerson's and Adelyn's wardrobe! :)

So glad you all were able to have an outing. Rosa's is the best. E looks so cute in her new outfit.

Glad your husband was able to get out of the house for a bit - I bet it was so refreshing for him!

So glad you've been able to get out and about more! Hope this church is *the* one. That must be so hard! This may seem like a dumb question but is it harder to find friends/families with the same values you have now that you live in California?

Sounds like you had a crazy busy weekend! That picture of E passed out on the floor is too much -- I think my Mom has too many similar ones of me when I was younger (and my college roommates probably have some as well from those days...)!

Love the update. So, did Jesse enjoy driving the motorized cart in Target as much as I imagine he did? :)
