Her first time drawing on herself:

We went to the zoo last week (pics to come) and we discovered she has her daddy's allergies:

She woke up crying at 11:30 pm with her eyes all swollen! We decided to give her a bath to wash anything off of her and to calm her down. Luckily we had her 15-month check-up the next day. The dr. confirmed it is allergies and prescribed some eye drops!

California 2010

I have a FABULOUS Aunt Debbie who called me up in May and asked if Lilly and I wanted to come out to Laguna Beach for a visit! I very excitedly said "YES" and we set a date right away!!! Lilly and I headed out on June 3rd (which was my Aunt's birthday) and came back on June 11th. We had a WONDERFUL time! We did miss the daddy, but we were sad to leave California! Normally I would refer to it as sunny California, but we were there to witness the "June Gloom"! Aunt Debs picked us up from the airport and we met her best friend, Marianne, for lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. After lunch, we went back to the "Thornton Villa" (that's what we call their house). My aunt always has a cute gift back on our beds with an itinerary for the vacation. That night we went to Javier's for dinner. It is a really yummy Mexican restaurant that we always go to and get shrimp enchiladas! They are delicious! I will now start posting pictures to go along with what we did in California!!!

Here are pictures from day 1:
Just arriving at the airport!

Lilly with Uncle Mike (this was the only day we got to see him :( )***The California trip has several posts. To see them all, you have to hit "Older Posts" at the bottom of the page. It won't change it so that all of my posts will show up on the front page. Days 8 and 9 is the last post. There are A LOT of pictures! I have hundreds more! It was hard to narrow them down!!!

Days 2 and 3

Day 2: The Beach

The second we got here, Lilly had a little boyfriend!!
She REALLY wanted to get in the water!

Exhausted after working hard at the beach

She loved this fountain in the backyard!

Day 3: Pampering for the Momma! Getting ready to go. Aunt Debbie gave her this adorable outfit!
Eating snacks while waiting for mom. My Aunt is so sweet! She planned just for me to get a manicure and pedicure!!! I am so lucky! It was so nice to be pampered! Lilly and my aunt went to the store while I was getting the royal treatment!

The cute lady that did my nails! Here she is putting on my shoes!!!

Days 4 and 5

Day 4: Parade at Balboa Island and visit with the Renners

The Renners are friends of my aunt and uncle that we see every time we come out! We have known them since before their oldest, Tommy, was born! (He is now 16!!!) They absolutely loved Lilly and she loved them! They wanted to keep her!!! (I can't blame them!)
Lilly's new toy! She loves it!

Day 5: Dawn's birthday lunch at Cheesecake Factory

Every morning Lilly and I would get in bed with my aunt and watch cartoons while Lilly drank her milk!

Lilly took out her hair! She fit right in with her adorable faux-hawk!!!
Dawn is my aunt's assistant and she is so sweet! We were glad we got to celebrate her birthday with her!

At night we did a mud mask and watched TV!

Days 6 and 7

Day 6: Visit with Tiona and Carter

My brother-in-law, Trent, and his wife, Tiona, live in San Pedro, CA. We were lucky enough that Tiona and Carter were able to come visit us in Laguna!!!

Their first visit since Christmas!

The only picture of the 2 of them looking at the same time! Silly kids!
Lilly loves her Aunt Tiona

One of their favorite things to do! They followed each other every where! They had so much fun together!!!

We went to lunch at a yummy hamburger place called Johnny Rockets

Bath time after a fun day! Thanks for visiting Tiona and Carter! Sorry we missed you, Trent!

Day 7: Lunch with Henry and Riding the Merry-Go-Round

Henry works with my aunt and he is the nicest, sweetest guy! He gave Lilly a Madame Alexander doll (those are the dolls all the girls in my family collect!) He gave me some soap. The flavor of the soap is Ginger and White Lilly! He got it because it has Lilly in the name!

Lilly just loved Henry!

She also loved the Merry-Go-Round!

Her new way of chillin' in the stroller!
