Joey's 6 month birthday in San Diego

Joey was six months old this past Saturday. I cannot believe my baby is six months old already. Where does time go!

We went to San Diego for his six month birthday and to celebrate my 33rd birthday (a few weeks early) with my family. My parents and sister Cara live in San Diego and my little sister flew in from Salt Lake City.

As usual Joey was an angel. He did not fuss on either the flight there or on the returning flight. We are so blessed that Joey travels well. He does however get a little heavy after carrying him around the airport for a few hours. We did not bring a stroller so we had no where to put him down. But it was a great trip so it was worth it.

On Friday we took Joey to the beach for the first time. It was a beautiful day!

His grandma introduced him to all the wonderful things at the beach. The sand...

The water...

Putting your feet in the wet sand...

Joey was intrigued. It was so cute how he lifted his little feet and played around in the water.

I love this photo of him squishing the water and sand with his little toes.
He was wiped out from all that fun in the water! So he took a little nap under the umbrella.

It stinks living so far away from my family. We only see each other about every other month so it is a real treat getting to watch Joey bond with my parents, sisters and his cousins Walker and Ellie.
Here are some more photos of the weekend...
Joey and pa pa spending some quality time in his Pa Pa's favorite chair. Pa Pa had him cracking up by singing him the Beatles.

Grandma feeding Joey some peas for the first time.
Joey and his adorable little cousin Ellie who is 2.

Grandma took Joey for a ride in a little push toy car.
He really liked it. We are going to have to get one of these!

He got really into it. Look at him holding the steering wheel.

We were sorry to leave on Monday. Joey loved seeing his Grandma and Pa Pa

Look at him laughing!
Happy Six Month Birthday Joey! We love you more than we ever could have imagined and I am treasuring watching you grow up.

  3. Looked like a lot of fun. I love the beach shots. That's great that you are able to see family every other month. The only way my parents see Matthew is through my blog and the webcam as they live half way across the globe. :-(
