hello erin »

our W E E K E N D.

This weekend i was all on my own. Mike was off gallivanting at UCLA for some business course- and left lex and i to fend for ourselves for the whole weekend. While we missed him dearly we still had a ton of fun- and got an extra special visitor on saturday to come hang out with us.

The weekend started on friday at the Long Beach Aquarium. We LOVE the aquarium. We recently ditched gymboree- so our fridays are officially free (except swim lessons, but those are at night so they totally dont count) so we needed something to do. I swear this kid is going to want a pet fish, dolphin, otter, and jellyfish from santa this year. I cant believe i just discovered her hair will go into a cute little pony- perkiest ponytail ever!

Coco came along, and got to meet stingrays, the penguins, and she told her alllll about the fishies.


There’s a trick to getting the sea lions to play with you. Hold a coin up to the glass and they come right up and want to play!2013-09-15_0005

Saturday my good friend from college leslie came to visit. She brought lex the CUTEST apron ever (for holiday baking. and play kitchening purposes). Poor leslie’s closest target is 45 minutes away (what’s wrong with santa barbara that they dont have a target?!) so we always somehow end up at target for necessities like pumpkin spice m&m’s and shower caddies.


Lex really excels at picking out shower caddies.


Sunday we lounged. Read books. Went for walks. Cleaned. And didnt get out of our jammies until noon. Definitely a perfect little sunday.
