My poor Emily

I hope that everyone is having a great weekend. My little Emily is sick. She got sick a couple of time last night and as I was working on a post (the kids were napping) she got sick again. I am now rocking her back to sleep.

Happy Thanksgiving

I know that I am about 2 days late. The family drove to Yucaipa to spend the holiday with Dave's dad. To keep the driving to a min and so we can enjoy the holiday we rotate what family we spend the day with. We had a great time. The kids loved playing with their cousin and Papa Dave. The dinner was great but the company was even better.
The Buck family has so much to be thankful for. Even throw some times we may lose sight. One look at our kids faces or hearing them say "mommy" or " daddy" gets us back in track. I hope everyone had a great holiday.
Below is a couple of the kids playing in the trampoline. Sorry for how poor the quality is. The pictures were taken with my phone in very very low light.

Oma's Pumpkin Patch

I know that Halloween has past but I wanted to share with you a couple  of pictures of our family trip to Oma's Pumpkin Patch. The kids had so much fun running around and playing with every thing that they could. Oma's Pumpkin Patch is a work farm so there were old farm equipment that the kids were able to climb all over and play. There was also a hay ride. We were giving a tour of the cows. Owen made sure to tell us right away that it smelled. The kids were able to pick out their own little pumpkins to take home. The next night Dave helped the kids crave the pumpkins.




I tried to get a picture of the kids. Well it did not work out. The look on Owen's face is too funny. Just like his dad. Not a fan of a posed picture.

Summers Past Farms

I am always looking for fun and new things to do with the kids. At the park a couple of weeks ago one of the moms told me about Summers Past Farms. One of the best things about Summers Past Farm is that it is free. They have animals, flower maze, gardens, handmade soap, pumpkins, and a sand box ( this kids loved that part)
The kids enjoyed looking at the animals. We saw some  Mille Fluer chickens. When I asked Owen what sound does the chicken make her said " Chicken, Chicken, Chicken" He is too funny.

We also checked out some Alpacas. Emily did not know what to make of them.

"Lets go!"

Off to the pumpkins.

"Owen can pick up" "Look at me Mommy" Owen called out to me.

Emily liked picking up the hay.

"Owen did it"

We found a nice little bench to have some gold fish our favorite snack.

I just love these two pictures.

This is one for the wall. 

We had a great time.


We are back

Hello everyone. I am sorry it has been along time from my last post. This time of year is so busy. there is so much that goes on. I am happy to be back. I hope that everyone is doing well.

Water Color Time

Today I was standing in my art room looking for an idea for an art project for the kids. I look down and saw Emily trying to open my water color set. Thanks Emily for the great idea. The kids loved it. Owen likes to make hand prints and Emily liked to paint on herself.
I just love that my kids enjoy art. Now I have new pictures for my art wall

Tub Painting

Hello. Today was very hot in San Diego. The temp at our house was 109. Normally when we paint we try and keep it outside. But it was a little to hot today for that. So it was time for some tub painting The kids love finger painting, I think it is b/c of the mess. The best part about tub painting is that the kids are already in the tub for clean up.

My Sweet Little Boy

I want to share with you some thing that Owen did that just made my day. Emily, Owen and myself were playing with the blocks on the ground.  I love to see the kids play together, and get along. All of a sudden Owen stood up and gave me a hug. He gave me a big bear hug around my head, and would not let go. I could hear his heart beat. It reminded me when I was pregnaet with him. At the end of my pregnancy I had to go to antenatal testing 2 times a week for the last part of my pregnancy. I can remember siting in the chair listenng to his heart beat. And now here I am with my 2 year old giving me a bear hug around my head listening to his heart beat. When he finally let go I gave him a kiss and said "Love you little man" He gave me a look and said "Mom"

I like how she is givng me the thumbs up.

Morning Trip to the Park

The weather here in San diego has been very warm. Where we live it is HOT. We spend most of the day playing in the water trying to stay cool. On Firday it was over cast and cool. So we were off to the partk. It was nice to be able to spend time there and not worry about this kids getting to hot. We packed food for the brids and a snak for us.  Here are a couple of pictuers.

Owen loves to feed the birds. He calls for the them. " Bird Bird come eat"

Emily loves the swings. She could stay on them all day. I just love her smile.
Owen is not a big fan of the swing.

But the slide he loves going down the slide


"Its Owen""

Well today I need a fast art project to do with the kids. Owen and Emily were full of energy and looking for some thing to do. And this was all before breakfast. I wanted to do some thing different for them than just handing them paper and a couple of crayons. Owen loves to trace his hand or mine and color it in. So I taped up a long piece of paper on our sliding glass door and grabbed a couple of crayons. I had own stand with his back to the paper and tried to trace him. Trying to get a 2 year old to stay still is hard. But when he turned around he jumped up and down and said "It's Owen It's Owen" Emily even got in the fun.

I Love her little hair style
