Cousin Wrap Up

I had some more pictures to post from our month long cousin-fest and pictures I gathered from others blogs. So here is the final wrap up from our super fun July. This week we are back to our normal schedule. Ava keeps asking if we are going to Gram's house and when her cousins are coming back to visit. October can't come soon enough for her!

More swimming!
Beach Club.

Mission Viejo Lake

Makenna and Ava had a sleepover! How cute and excited is Makenna here?!
Thanks for taking pictures Mark and Sara.

Cindy and Saunja took Lauren, Dana, Ava and Makenna to the paddle boats on RSM lake one day. It looks like they had a fun time although I'm not sure what paddling help the little girls were to Gram.

Saunja and Dennis were in Jamaica and brought home these fun toys which were a hit with everyone! Thanks Carlsons!

Thanks for sharing pictures everyone. See you soon. The end.

Eric and I celebrated our anniversary up in LA for a night. We stayed right downtown at The Standard. It was fun and trendy and the perfect place for fun without kids.

We took advantage of the rooftop pool and pods with water beds and awesome views.

Look at this guy we spied at the pool.

We tried a few local favorite eateries.
Philippe's for french dips and pineapple pie.

Ricky's Fish Tacos, literally in a driveway.

Tito's Tacos in Culver City which happened to be in Casey's old neighborhood and we had a Jay's sighting.

Besides our Anniversary, our reason for heading to LA was for the Big Talk show at The Satellite. We got to hang out with Tyson, Amber, and Craig for the night at the show and dinner. It was interesting to see Tyson's life on the road with Ronnie from The Killers. Matt Sharp from Weezer played bass in two songs and Eric got to meet him after the show. Everyone was so friendly. Tyson plays bass and sings back up vocals. He did such a great job and we loved it! It was funny after the show to see Tyson get asked for autographs and meet fans. Thanks making us VIP Henries. (Check Tyson out in their music video and on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday!)

After the show we headed back to the hotel rooftop where there was a DJ.
We had a super fun time.

Happy Anniversary to us!
Many, many thanks to Cindy for having the girls overnight. It was the first time we've left them and we all survived!

Happy 9 Years!

Eric and I enjoyed out little dinner date tonight. We are celebrating our 9 year anniversary today! We are heading out for an overnight getaway on Friday. But tonight we just savored our quiet time and tacos in the canyon.

It was a happy day nine years ago and it was a happy day today! Love you, Eric.
