....thank you Groupon for having a half off ticket special, because as much fun as Isabelle had running around screaming through the dimly lite museum....we saw very few fish. And much more of how to maneuver the museum most aggressively and who can scream louder, but seriously even if we had been advanced enough to view the fish and act interested, it was very disappointing. I guess that's what you get with an aquarium in Arizona though. I mean Mel & Niko had most previously been to the Baltimore aquarium and I think I had most recently viewed the Seattle Aquarium or maybe even the Baltimore (my memory is a bit fuzzy). Anyways, we went, $9 is the most I'd ever pay to see it and next time I will definitely need a more advanced child companion. However Mel, Niko, Isabelle & I had a very fun day at the aquarium, lunch out and at the park (thanks for meeting up with us Angie, Miles & Rocko)!!!
A few fun pictures from the day! Next time lets hit up the zoo!!! ;o)

Happy Valentines Day 2011!!!

We feel so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people in our life. From Playgroups, to College Friends, High School Friends, Athletic Friends and an AMAZING EXTENDED FAMILY, we are so blessed as a little family of three! Thank you all for your love and support. Although, Andrew spent his Valentine's with his two beautiful Valentines (Isabelle & Myself), we want to make sure everyone in our life knows what they mean to us! We love you all so dearly and look forward to many years together!
On a side note, we celebrated at home with Yummy Scallops, Asparagus, Rice & Homemade cookies. We had a lovely dinner, now movie time....Social Network on DVD.

Thank you to the bestest GRANDMA AND GRANDPA for playing with me all week while mommy and daddy were away!!!


BTW, a note from Mommy....Isabelle did awesome while we were gone and enjoyed her time alone with Grandma and Grandpa. She is the most wonderful, loving, smart, sweet, cute baby girl and we feel so blessed to have her! We are so happy that Grandma and Grandpa got to experience first hand how wonderful she is (even without us)!!!! THANK YOU A MILLION!!! When are you free again? Any takers?

Awesome Husband Alert!

Um, so yes, I AM BRAGGING, but who wouldn't!?!?!!

Andrew replaced our living room floor two weeks ago and it looks FANTASTIC!
He is absolutely amazing!
It took two days and about 16 hours of nonstop work (prying the already glued boards from the ground was the most difficult task...), so without further delay....


Love, Kat

PS - I did nothing, but make Pumpkin Waffles and help carry the carpet from the room (gross).....Thank you ANDREW!

Playa del Carmen

6 nights and 7 days of relaxing...boring to you (maybe), awesome to us!
We are back to our baby girl, our home, and our life.
Seriously an amazing trip. We would definately recommend it to anyone looking to get away for a long weekend, but we missed our baby girl quite a bit toward the end!

I feel so blessed to have such an amazing husband who will go on fun adventures like this one with me. We did not spare an expense on anything, we were on vacation and we did just what we WANTED to do.

We laid on the beach mostly,
We ordering buckets of beer and margaritas.
We ate amazing fresh fish and shrimp.
We had chips and salsa (our personal favorites) at least twice a day.
We wondered,
we shopped,
We said "No" to drugs about 57 times (and we were only asked 57 times).
We had amazing massages on the beach!
We people watched constantly and 'wow' is all i can say.
We slept a lot, but we could never stayed out late even with an afternoon nap...
We went to Cozumel to Scuba Dive....
And then we laid on the beach!

We feel even more in love with one another and after 8 years together, we feel so blessed that we have the ability and the time to take this trip alone together for our relationship!
Love you Andrew!
