Ever since I went to see the musical Wicked with my sisters in San Francisco last summer, I've been anxious about taking my girls to see it there too. Finally the day that we had been waiting for arrived!  We truly had a great time!  The weather was very pleasant, even during the little afternoon rain shower we experienced with our cheap umbrellas.

It was so much fun to spend time with the grandmas.  They had us laughing continuously!
We tried to squeeze in everything we possibly could in the three days we were there, and I've got to say we did a pretty good job at it.  We all came home $BROKE$ so I guess it's a good thing our time was limited. San Francisco truly is a shopper's paradise!

Enjoying the sunshine at Pier 39
Enjoying some delicious crepes at the best mall (not the typical) eatery  in the world!

You can't visit San Francisco without a few rides on the cable cars!
We even got lucky enough to help bring in the "Year of the Tiger" at the Chinese New Year Parade.

Doing what we do best, eating!  Thanks girls, for a great time. I loved spending time with all of you.  It was sooo much fun.

"B" is for...

Recently we were called upon to BABYSIT a sweet little BABY BOY. 
Kylee and Conner had the opportunity to go to Florida to see Conner's dad race at Daytona.  They decided Nixon would have more fun at our house. I'd have to agree! I'm sure they had more fun having him at our house too!
While at our house I began to notice that the majority of the things that Nixon loves begins with "B". Hense, the title of this post.
Seriously, this little guy has got some talent when it comes to throwing a ball.  He truly would have been content doing this all day, everyday.  He even began to throw one handed.  It's quite evident he's well on his way to being a lefty!

While not much of a bottle drinker, this kid can eat!  Babyfood that is.  He's kind of gaggy when you try giving him something other than baby ceareal with fruit or sweet potatoes mixed in. Although in this picture he had decided that Chips Ahoy weren't so bad!

All I have to say is, "good luck mommy and daddy"! This little guy has a couple of early addictions.  He loves his BLANKIE and his BINKY too.  I took it upon myself to break him of the binky while I had him.  He was only allowed to have it for bed. That worked great!  We'll see if his parents are more addicted than he is. As for his BLANKIE, he seriously gets so excited just by the sight of it.  His little arms and legs start going a million miles an hour. It's really pretty sweet;)
Just like the other three grandkids, it hasn't taken Nixon long to figure out that he has his BAMPA completely wrapped around his little finger.  All it takes is one of his heart melting grins and you're a gonner!
As long as the BALL was involved, BATHS were tolerated!  Sadly I didn't realize as I was snapping pictures that BOOGERS were part of the theme too!  Oh well, it's real!
Best of All:
I met Kylee and Conner at the airport and was excited to see Nixon's reaction when he saw them.  I must say, it was pretty comical.  As they came up to us, he just stared them down. He was completely expressionless, just giving them "that look". Then all of a sudden, just as tears were starting to brim in his mother's eyes, he gave one of his signiture grins and all was well!
So once again, I'm happy to be sharing how BLESSED I am.  It's pretty cool, how that all fits into the theme too!
