Ok well before I start with our Angels game fun and drama, I will begin by telling you.....emma is not potty!!!

I gave up...I'm weak!!! On Wednesday we went back to diapers. I decided along with some advice from others that Emma probably isn't ready yet and it's not worth all the frustration that we went through on Tuesday. Kinda like....choose your battles. So Tuesday Emma peed in panties alllllll day long! Only went in toilet in morning twice. Rest of day in panties. So she clearly isn't ready and we will try again in a month, or two or three...haha!

Ok on to the Angels game.....last minute we (Kevin, myself, John and Tarra) decided to go to an Angels game. We decided at about 5:40pm and the game started at 7:05 and let's remember we live out in the 951 so we had to drive and all get ready for the game. Ok so we made it to the game and we had a blast at the game which you will be able to see by the pics posted. We decided to go to Denny's after the game for some yummy food. Then the adventure all began on the way home. Let's remember we have 3 kids in the car with us. Well Emma, Tyler and myself are out. Kenzie is hanging out watching Happy Feet.

I wake up to find out that we ran OUT of gas!!!! We are on the 15 seriously almost home between two exits. The exit ahead has a gas station but well it was about 2 miles away which we later find out.

So we are thinking this is ok, we have Onstar....good ol Onstar, this is what Onstar is for right?? Haha, not exactly. After about 2o or 30 mins go by we find out it is going to take 2 hours for anyone to get to us with gas. Let me remind you it is almost midnite at this time. My wonderful husband thinks it is a GREAT idea to walk to the gas station. So him and John start walking.....and walking...and Tarra and I are in the car....HOT car. Emma and Tyler ...remember at one point were sleeping nicely. Well my little Emma wakes up screaming! Of course, which then wakes up Tyler and upsets him (although he was really good) Emma not so much. Who could really blame them, I wanted to scream and cry. I refrained though.

So it gets better, Highway Patrol pulls up behind us and I'm thinking ....Praise GOD!!! We tell them what is going on....they tell us they will go pick up our husbands and call AAA. I have AAA but I didn't have my card on me....note to self, you can still use AAA even if you don't have card on you. Although it is quite a pain as you will later find out!

In the meantime Kevin calls a really good friend of ours Paul, to see if he can bring us gas because they realize the gas station is farther then they thought and it is taking them forever to get there. So kindly Paul agrees....remember it is now after midnite! I then call kevin and tell him highway patrol is on their way to pick you guys up and AAA is on their way.

Now Kevin and John are back to the crying, screaming, sweating and not happy! The guys inform us that they were just frisked (standard procedure, I guess). We got a big laugh out of that! Wish we had pictures! We waited AAA came and then it took forever to get everything cleared with not having my card AND then ......not to self.....always carry cash on you! We had to pay $10 cash for the gas, which AAA guy didn't even have with him. We had $8 cash, not enough. So Kevin went with AAA guy to gas station to get cash and to get gas. Ughhhhh, I seriously didn't think the nite would EVER end!!! It did. Finally we had gas!!! Finally we pulled onto our street!! And Finally all our kiddos were in bed!!! Ahhhh my pillow never felt so good.

Formal Nite on Cruise

Me and My sisters! Love you girls!

This summer has gone by soooo quickly! I can't believe it is already August! We have officially began the potty training. I feel like I am cleaning up after a puppy. Although I am so proud of Emma. She went poopoo twice in the big potty today and peed twice in the potty. We also had 4 potty accidents all within about an hour. Yikes!!! We wrapped up her diapers and gave them to Tyler...he is our good friend's son. Emma was so excited to give them to Tyler! So all in all the first official day of potty training went pretty well!

This summer we have been busy with going to Az to visit my dad and family there. We brought my little sister home with us and had a fun time here with her. My dad and stepmom came out here for the 4th of July and we celebrated at Sea World. They then watched Emma while Kevin and I went on a 5 day cruise to Baja Mexico. We went with my sister Andrea and her husband Travis. We are so thankful to my dad and stepmom who watched Emma from Mon-thurs and then to my mom who watched Emma thurs-Sat. They all made it possible for us to go on the cruise and know that our little one was in good hands! Thanks so much Dad, Yvonne and Mom!!!

We found out that my sister Andrea is PREGGERS!!!! We are sooo excited! Andrea is due Feburary 28th. Emma and I have been hanging out with Andrea almost every week which has been awesome! We have also been spending a lot of time at the Lagoon in our neighborhood with all our amazing friends from church!

At the end of July our church put on VBS and it was an amazing time sharing God's love with the kids of Lake Elsinore. Kevin and I took Emma to the Orange County fair and had a blast watching her in the petting zoo, ride a pony and go on a roller coaster with Mommy! That evening we took Emma to hang out with Grandma, Auntie Mynett and her cousins! She had a great time while Kev and I went to a Mercy Me concert with Kev's mom, brother and brother's girlfriend.

We are now into August and I just can't believe summer is almost over! Emma was able to go to her Grandma's house in Orange County and spend two nights!! Emma was soooo excited. She helped Mommy pack her suitcase and she just could not stop talking about it! She had a great time with her Grandma and Uncles!

Now we are into the potty training...

To be continued!

Here are some pics to enjoy of our summer.
