After a very busy week, on Friday night Kyle, Katelyn and I headed over to Irvine Spectrum to meet up with Casey, Meygan and Kylie. We walked around through baby stores, and Target and ended up at Golden Spoon for some frozen yogurt. It was so much fun catching up with good friends and watching Katelyn and Kylie talk to each other. It’s amazing to watch babies interact with one another. We hung out until 9pm, and then headed home to get Katelyn ready for bed.
Saturday we spent the day cleaning the apartment and doing laundry and then headed out to the pool in the afternoon. We’re trying to teach Katelyn how to kick her feet in the pool and get used to the water so I can put her in swim lessons when she gets older. The pool water was pretty cold and so we headed over to the spa. It wasn’t as hot as usual, so we dipped Katelyn’s feet in. She loved it!! We ended up letting her stand on the stair with her toes in the water for a couple minutes before we headed home. She cried when we took her out of the spa because she loves the warm water. Go figure!! On the way home from the pool (it’s probably a 300 ft walk) Katelyn fell asleep and when we got home I changed her and she feel asleep in her crib in her diaper. Kyle and I were tired so we laid down and took a nap and woke up in time for dinner.
Today Kyle and I woke up, watched the Podcast of the church service at Mariner’s Church, and got ready for the day. We decided to head down to Balboa Island where we used to go a lot when we were dating and get chocolate covered bananas. Yum! We met up with our friends Eric and Sierra and their daughter Cozette (3 1/2 yrs old) and son Landon (10 mo) to walk around the boardwalk. We ate chocolate covered bananas and walked around the little shops. Kyle’s family used to own a vacation home on the boardwalk facing Balboa Bay and we went to see how much it had changed over the years. The weather was beautiful and it was so great to be outside. After walking around we ate at a local restaurant called “Wilma’s;” where we used to eat all the time while we were dating. After leaving Balboa Island we stopped by to visit Tony and Dave (2 of Kyle’s good friends from high school) and see their new apartment in Newport. They hadn’t seen Katelyn since the day after she was born so they were excited to hang out with her. Katelyn loved Tony and would watch him and talk to him. It was so cute!!
Kyle and I headed home to relax and put Katelyn to bed. We had a wonderful weekend and tomorrow begins a new busy week. I’m excited for this week because Friday is our 4 year anniversary!! YEAH!! This time last year we concieved our beautiful baby girl, not sure how we’ll top that this year.
