the carousel

Little Charlie loved, loved, loved the carousel.
There's something about rides that go around in circles that just get to him.
He also loved dumbo, casey jr., little mermaid ride, pirates and the tiki room.

fun in the tiki room with my sissies!

we had to eat at pizza port... it's tradition!

We spent 3 days at Disneyland and California Adventure.
Little Charlie was such a good boy for us. He loved going on rides that went in circles like dumbo and the carousel. He stayed pretty quiet on the other rides and just watched his cousin Azaliea go crazy with excitement. He's just a mellow kid, which I love.
Little Charlie loved eating the pineapple whip by the tiki room and drinking cold water from my water bottle. He took a nap right at 12:00 and woke up around 2:00 which gave me and my husband time to go on rides together.
We had such a great time and I think little Charlie enjoyed getting to know his cousins more.

that family of mine...

became one of those families that wear matching shirts to Disneyland!
But really, they were awesome shirts that Ernesto designed and it helped spotting the family amongst the thousands at the park. Soon, we were comparing our shirts to other family reunion shirts and felt pretty confident that we had the best design!! One of my favorite parts of our trip was getting little Charlie's silhouette done.
This is a long tradition of the Dellenbachs. My Granny got silhouettes for her children, my parents got silhouettes for us kids, and now it's my turn to get a silhouette of my child. Such a fun experience.
The lady in the shop was amazing and blew my silhouette making out of the water!

More pictures to come!!

piano man

I love having a piano in our home. Love, love, love it.
Not only can I practice but I have been teaching my husband to play.
We have only done 3 lessons in a month but with our busy schedules that is the best we can do.
Little Charlie loves playing the piano with me or he just climbs on the bench and starts strumming along. I remember when I was pregnant with him and I would sit by the piano hoping my little baby would enjoy the music and learn to love the piano.
I think it payed off.

summer snack

*** watermelon ***

My family is loving watermelon these days and it has been the
perfect go-to snack during the day.
Every time I buy a seedless watermelon I think of the skit by Jerry Seinfeld! too funny!

my youngest best friend

{ Little Charlie tagging along on my strange hobby... looking at model homes!}

Is it strange that I consider my child one of my best friends?!
Because he IS.
He is always with me and I love having this constant companion each day.
I do just about everything with him each day which includes:

-cuddling in bed each morning
-eating breakfast, lunch and dinner together
-taking walks together
-go to the park together
-read books together
-taking drives together
-going swimming together {our new favorite summer activity}
-talk to each other
-learn new things together

I think a best friend helps you want to be a better person and little Charlie has done just that.
He reminds me each day of my infinite worth and my potential.
He helps me work harder to reach my goals and be more Christ-like.

I love this little child of mine and I'm so grateful that I am blessed to be his mother and friend.
