embracing our last few days of summer

Why does summer go so fast? Most mothers are dying by now to get their kids back in school, but for me... this is a sad time. I love spending every moment with my boys. Sure they fight like most siblings do, but when I've broken up the small fights we are spending time together and building confident children who are crazy loved by their mommy and daddy.

This summer has been pack with parties, activities and this last week Mr. Sonboul and I took off time from work. We headed down to sea world to visit our Sea World friends and yes... it was very enchanting :)

The next day we played until the sun went down at Legoland. My sister and her kids came along with us this day. We ate ice cream, laughed way too much and I almost threw up on those darn spinney rides. However, like a lady I composed myself haha!

To explain these pictures... I challenge my nieces and nephew to the bucket. At Legoland there is this big ol' bucket and every 5 minutes it dumps. It has so much water in it, that it almost hurts when it hits you and when it does... you look like you've jumped in a pool.

The next morning was Thursday and we enjoyed the pool at our hotel. My white legs got some sun and the boys swam like fishies.

Friday we went bowling and Calvin apparently is the worlds next bowling champion. I swear he wasn't even trying and he knock down almost every pin on every turn.

Later that same day we went to visit the firemen and lucky us we got a tour of the place.

Saturday was filled with riding bikes, the Santa Monica pier, funnel cake, and a grand ferris wheel. It was as magical as it sounds. Perfect weather and powder sugar covered faces

I also finally took pictures of my new bike. I heart this thing so much! Jason had it custom made for me. We added gears to it, a white seat, white handles, a white basket and a vintage lady I call Eleanor.

Sunday was a down day with building a cool lego set and a yummy dinner on the balcony.

And Monday, our last day was spent in Pasadena at the Huntington Botanical Gardens. The day was warm and our boys took advantage of the water haha.

My favorite thing out of everything... Spending time with my family and taking in life.

It was a perfect week with my hot hubby and adorable boys. So, congratulations... you made it to the end of this post. I hope you enjoyed it.
