Brock’s Birthday

We of course love celebrating Brock! This man is such an amazing husband and daddy. This year for his birthday we had a weekend trip to Huntington Beach. The first day we spent at the OC Fair. It was a hot day but we had a great time with Brock’s entire family.

The girls love taking pictures at all of the signs.

This area was surprisingly pretty empty, although it was a little hidden towards the back of the fair. Emerald got to sign up for the kids cooking demonstration which she could not have been happier about. She was so proud of the cookies that she made.IMG_20180810_175303382

Not only did Em get to do this she was also picked to be the main cheerleader for our section in the pig race. The was hilarious to watch, the cute little pigs run their little hearts out. IMG_20180810_162038356

We were so in love with all the baby goats!

We of course had to end the day with a lot of time in the petting zoo section where an animal tried to eat my dress and I was soaked in disgusting drool. (I know Brock has not been in any of these pictures, what can I say he or I are usually taking the pictures of the girls) Anyway after a long day at the fair was went to the condo in Huntington Beach. The next morning Brock’s mom had a fishing adventure planned at the pier. Poor Brock spent most of the time helping the girls who were always loosing their bate or getting caught on something. They were all having a great time I on the other hand was not feeling great and it did not help being in the scorching sun on the pier. Thank goodness for shakes from Ruby’s Diner at the end of the pier, they were a life saver for me and Violet who of course was over the fishing thing pretty quickly (I mean she is only three) IMG_20180811_091130105IMG_20180811_110858203

The fishing was of course followed by swimming in the ocean to cool off and might I add we did not catch anything . . . we got a lot of nibbles but nothing reeled in.

It was a very full weekend celebrating this man and we are so lucky that we get to spend so much amazing time with him. We love you Brocky!
