Makai’s Busy Social Weekend

July 20th, 2014

Friday Night: Dinner outside with Jen and Quinn at their house. Lots of high fiving and dancing.


Saturday Morning: Early morning date with Ellyza and Loden at Little Gym. We attended a free introductory class where Makai sat there and looked at me like “Really? I got outta bed early for this?” To be fair, I think he did have fun some of the time. But we had to be at the gym at 8 a.m. and he usually sleeps til 7:30, so yeh. Up early. Also, he’s been kind of a daredevil and has banged his face (split lip, eye bruise, bleeding teeth) a few times this week. It kind of annoyed me that once he was in a padded space he didn’t want to do anything! I think he just needed more time to warm up to the place and the people. If we went every week, I’m sure it would be way different. As long has he got his venti latte on the way!


Saturday Afternoon: Barbecue at Danny, Caroline and Rory’s new place in Riverside. Such a big house and a nice yard! It was great to check it out. Trent, Loden, Ellyza, Jen, Chad and Quinn all came out too. Danny grilled pork tacos and they were so delicious. Makai and Ellyza had fun chilling out in the pool while Quinn and Rory ran around like crazy! Oh, and there’s a funny kissing cousins photo of Rory and Makai that will someday be used for blackmail purposes :)



Sunday Afternoon: Cousin Alexia’s first birthday party! Got to see lots of Dallas’s relatives that we haven’t seen since Christmas time. And we got to see Danny and Caroline and Rory again. And Cory, who lives in Colorado and we haven’t seen for a couple years!


We caught up with many friends this weekend and had a great time!

Bow & Stern Oyster Bar

July 19th, 2014


Went to check this place out recently with Adam and Christine. It’s where Branch 27 used to be and I always wanted to go there but never did! Bow & Stern has great oysters. And 12 different varieties on the menu! I don’t know if I’ve even had oysters since before I was pregnant, so they tasted extra good. The other food was pretty hit and miss.

Dole Mansion

July 18th, 2014


Back in April, I got Makai’s 6-month photos taken here at Dole Mansion. The estate has an interesting history of the Dole family having a super lavish lifestyle. There’s even rumor of a Dole ghost! The property now is home to a bunch of artists studios and this is where Alicia Wehby, our photographer, is based from.

As a side note, we loved Alicia and the photos she took and would highly recommend her!
