Alameda County Fair

On the recommendation from a friend, we spent our first Saturday up in NorCal at the Alameda County Fair! It was really fun, and the girls really enjoyed getting out. It was great to spend some time as a family and just have a nice day together.

Welcome Baby Weston!!

Our dear friends Andrew and Michelle have had their first precious baby boy! We are so excited for them and for their families! We got the chance to be at the hospital when all the grandparents got "the text" that Weston was born. I think Michelle's mom was so excited she was going to blast off to the moon! I have never seen a more excited Grandmother... it was an amazing moment and so incredibly precious! Andrew and Michelle are so blessed, by all their family who were there and love them so much!

Kalena and Weston's cousin Joy got to bond over fruit snaks and Finding Nemo while we all waited to see Andrew and Michelle! Joy was so sweet and cute!! It was such an honor as well to meet Andrew's Mom, and to see his Dad again! What wonderful people!!!

A Wonderful Goodbye!

Our Bible study Epoch had an amazing goodbye party for us the Friday before we left. We were so overwhelmed by the love and support that we were shown by our dear friends. We love everyone so much and we will miss you all!!! Thank you to Mike, Randy, Pius and Andy for the hilarious video.. not everyone can be Justin Lyon, it's true :) Thank you to everyone who help put the wonderful dinner and party together, it was a blast and something we will always remember. We will always cherish our time here in Epoch and all our dear friends. We love you!!!

It's A Girl!!!

We are so excited to announce the gender of our third little one, a baby girl!! Some of my dearest friends took me to a "recreational gender determination ultrasound" where we all sat together and watched our new baby in 3D up on a big screen. The pictures are so clear I could tell right away it was a girl and she has the cutest little face in the world!! Kalena was very excited, exclaiming over and over..."Pops is a girl, just like me!" She named the new baby "Pops" back when we found out I was pregnant. Maybe now it will morph into "Poppy" :)
