A day a the beach

Last Sunday we had a nice relaxing day at the beach. We didn't get IN the water, because the water is WAY too cold right now but we had brunch at a local restaurant and strolled the boardwalk. I can't tell you how nice it was. The kids had a great time and Nate really enjoyed playing in the sand for a little while. We even drove down to the neighboring beach to grab some cupcakes from one of my favorite places, Cupcakes Couture in Manhattan beach. Yum!

I love chunky toes!
He insisted on carrying around his book! LOL. Not like he reads them but he likes to pretend.
No matter how much they fight, they totally love each other. Now I have proof! :)

Nate was really intrigued by the surfers. Hmm.....maybe surfing in his future??
My handsome hubby. Love this fool! :)
Time for cupcakes!

A New Project....

Why hello new blog! If you followed my other blog from the beginning, you know that it started as a mommy blog. As I shared more and more of my party planning passion, it soon took another turn. It was an exciting turn but I stopped posting about family stuff. Not only that but my family started to get scrutinized and I wasn't comfortable sharing things about what we did as a family or my children's milestones. As time has gone by I have missed blogging about this stuff, not so much to share with people but I really love having this as a virtual scrapbook. Plus I'm starting to blow up my Facebook albums! LOL. So as I continue to read a few of my favorite mom blogs, it inspired me to start this up again, with a fresh mind set and all the negativity behind me. Now, I won't be blogging about every little thing my kids do or what I made for dinner tonight but more of sharing our good times. I can't promise that this will be very interesting and I'm not sure how regular I can post, being that I'm barely trying to keep up with J. At Your Service. But this is something I want for myself and if there are others that would like to follow, then that's great. I'm very proud of my family and our unity. The way I see it, it's Team Rivas against the world!! :)
