My son is a great kid. He is very loving and tender hearted. He also is very protective of his family and has a great little testimony at a very young age. I love him with all my heart. Even lately when he has caused me grief- I still have a place in my heart that never was filled until he was born. Lately his sentences are more grown up and his thought process is maturing. I get glimpses every now and then of what he might look like as a man. I wanted to take some time to reflect on this little boy because sometimes in the hustle and bustle of our life- I forget to really see my children for the individuals they are. I love being Tate's mother...................

Newport Beach

We had the time of our lives here!!!!

Aquarium of The Pacific

we had to see a beach that night- It was our kids first time ever!

messy but happy- who could ask for anything more!

Tate playing with his shark toy
Chad bought Livy this pink dolphin- she has not put it down since!

Touching! Finally our mom let us look with our fingers and not just our eyes!!!

Livia by all of the Nemos

The diver is showing the kids the sting rays mouth

Mad that I told her we would not be seeing any mermaids today

Tate wanted in the water too!

They had these fun squirting statues that the kids could play on- Tate was in heaven!

The seal loved our family!

Feeding the birds the lovely lunch I packed for my family
