i love my boy

Breakfast with Daddy.  Ollie is starting to refuse to sit in his high chair, and instead wants to sit on a "big boy" chair like us for all meals.

My matching boys heading off to church

Ravioli for lunch.  Needless to say he had to take a bath after this one.

Adventure: Dublin St. Patricks Day Celebration

An Oliver tractor.  You don't see many of these around anymore.  It is also fitting that my Oliver thinks tractors are the coolest things ever!

Watching the parade

Corned Beef and Cabbage Fries: Surprisingly delicious!

As this is our first St. Patrick's Day living in Dublin, we figured we had to get in on the big celebration!  It's also nice that we are in walking distance to the parade and festival!  Ollie was confused at the parade though because he is now ruined by how awesome New Orleans parades are, and there were very few throws in this little Dublin parade!  We did have a lot of fun though!  Happy St. Patricks Day, a month ago!

adventure: san francisco



We decided to hit up San Francisco a few weeks ago to go to the Rainforest Cafe and our friend Kevin's birthday party. Ollie loved/was terrified of all the animals at the restaurant. The food wasn't that good and was way overpriced, but we had a lot of fun!  Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures of our friends, but that is ok.  We were the only ones there that have children, so we didn't stay long.

Family: Jason's 30th Birthday

all the smoke right after he blew out his 30 candles!

Ollie was handed the whipped cream spoon.  I think he liked it!
Jason had never had a surprise party before, so I knew I had to throw him one for his 30th.  My parents took him out to his birthday dinner at his favorite restaurant, the Claim Jumper, and when we got back there was a large amount of people at our apartment!  He was so surprised!  Forgive me though for these pathetic pictures.  The night was a lot of fun and busy, and I didn't take nearly enough pictures, especially of all of Jason's great friends who came to support him!  Thank you Kristene for all your help setting up too!
