We spent the rest of the morning at a friend of mine's house. She made us some delicious homemade applesauce last week and I wanted to learn how to do it! She invited me over and we made 10 jars worth! It was a lot of fun and the girls helped out too.Later that afternoon, we played outside for a little while. Aliyah loves to push Maya around on her bike. Maya seems to enjoy the free ride as well! There are few things that bring me more joy than seeing my girls play together and be friends.
And, of course, being pregnant, one of the greatest treasures of all!

Dean grilling some amazing steak. They made us the most delicious Sunday dinner! Thanks!
Near the beach where we stayed was a park with a zip line! I took Aliyah for a ride, but Maya wanted to go by herself! She's a brave girl.
Ken enjoyed learning to surf!
Check him out! By the end, he was a pro! Santa Barbara Zoo...I LOVE Aliyah's face here! She's saying "hold on Maya, we're going for a ride!"
We had amazing weather! Sunny all week!
Here is Maya holding a baby octopus! Benjamin, April's husband, showed us where to find them. It was a favorite activity among the kids!
April Fillmore, me and JesseAnn Mink. Don't be fooled by this picture...with 7 kids under the age of six, we were hardly ever just sitting around and hanging out!!! :) But our walks along the beach were fun!
I also did a little kayaking. Ken caught this picture of me with the girls watching. Aliyah wanted to come with me so bad! Maybe next year sweetie!

In July, we took a trip to Chicago to visit Ken's dad. We had such a wonderful time! Here are a few pictures from his farm. The girls LOVED riding the horses!!!
In July, we also had my family reunion and my brother, John, and his three amazing children (Justin, Ashley & Amanda) stayed with us. Here are Justin and Ashley with their cousin Deanna. The next picture is Maya and Amanda.
Well, there's the mini update! Sorry it has been so long!
