I finally finished hanging everything above the crib. I tried to find things that were light and not breakable.

The last thing I added was this family tree I found as a free printable here. They also had a birth record that was cute too and both in different color schemes. I already had this frame but was larger than anything I could print at home which meant I needed a background large enough. 12x12 scrapbook paper was too small. Wrapping paper would have been good but I didn't have any the rift color. Then I found this fabric that I had purchased to make a crib blanket out of. It worked great and now it will match the blanket whenever I get around to making it!

I cleaned up and rearranged the girls room and I'm hoping it will stay clean for awhile. Everything now has a place. This is such a tiny room for two kids and the treasure collected by one 6 year old who won't through anything away.

This past weekend was JAREDS birthday and his dad and step-mom were visiting.

We had a great dinner on the beach in Santa Cruz. The sunset was beautiful and dolphins came so close to shore!

You can barely see a dolphin here. 

We also visited the Japanese Gardens. 

This Canadian goose was covering her nest of eggs before leaving. 

Then we went to the boiling crab for dinner.
