Happy Birthday Keira

Keira had her second birthday on Friday. Now  she is a big two year old! We had cake and presents. The boys made her fruit loop necklaces and cards. But I think her favorite one was another Cinderella dress. And yes it is cute!
She was a little overwhelmed with all the attention. 
 Opening presents 
And of course we had to start the days of right with a waffle cake...
Over wall it was a fun day!!
And Keira and Kailey went to the doctor for their check ups. Keira is deathly afraid of the doctors. And has to sit in my lap as she cries the whole time. It all started last year when she had to get some blood tests done. And ever since she has cried. She did not even get any shots! 
Keira weighed 26 lbs (42%) and is 34 inches (64%).
Kailey is still spitting up although the throwing up has gotten better. But it is not effecting her growth. She weighs 13 lbs (81%) and is 23 inches (66%) and of course the head is in the 90%.
She loves to smile

Eyes, Hiedi, and others

The many eyes if the O'Brien clan. Jim says that his and my eyes look old!! It's crazy to think of our age and how old we will be in 10 years. Me... Almost 30 now and in 10 years as Jimmy is 17 almost 18 I will be 40, it's amazing.

Jimmy says hands up. This photo is most because I never seem to have any of him anymore.

So Jim thinks Keira should have been named Hiedi after Sherliy Temple's movie. What do you think??
And little Kailey who turned 2 months and is not so little!

Lots of photos

So because I did not update for what... About 5 months... Yikes here are some more photos of pre Kailey 
First as most of you know Michael was in the hospital right before Christmas. He had viral meningitis, here are some photos of him loving all the toys that he got from Children's.
Of course everything was ok, and what a blessing that it happened before Kailey was born. 
Some photos of my nieces and the kids

Here are some photos of some SD fishing 
Here are some co-op photos. Michael and Keira in class and Jimmy during the sience fair.
And here is Kailey when she was born, at one month and at two months (which is today!!)

Some more fun ones


Here are some photos of my baseball players!!

Sleepy Kailey

Long time lots of photos and new baby

WWelcome Kailey Elizabeth O'Brien
I have been MIA for a long time but hopefully I will update more, now that I have gotten the blogger app for my phone. I guess we will have to wait and see. 
Well there she is Kailey who is almost 2 months old now. It's amazing how time flies
Keira and Kailey together! Sister love. Keira loves to help as much as she can. She is always trying to give "Kailey upies" where Keira is the one picking up Kailey.
We went to Mammoth and he kids got a chance to go sledding. They loved it.

We also went to see the fault line the boys thought it was cool.
Kailey when she was younger.

I guess it has been a long time

I know I have been absent from blogging for quite awhile.  Maybe even the longest ever, which is saying something!! Well with Summer coming to end we have had a many adventures.  Here some photos of vacations, Wild Animal Park and Sea World visits, fishing trips, and more.

We went up to Mammoth for a vacation and got to see somethings that I had no idea where even there!
My grandpa, Ken built a cabin up there years and years ago, it fun to have my kids stay in the same place I did at their ages. Jim and Jimmy got do some fly fishing on the Owens River. It was really something. We went on a hike to Parker lake 4 miles round trip! and the kids did great! Michael walked the whole way never once even complaining. I needed more rest then he did, especially on the way up. 

We have sorta started a new pier fishing trip.  We go to Crystal pier and Jim and Jimmy go down the pier to start fishing while Mike, Keira and I  go and get Kono's for breakfast.  It is awesome!! although the boys wish they would have got shark by now, I am just happy to have yummy food and reel in a few mackerels.  As they say we have had a few Mack attacks.
 We have a year pass to the Zoo and Wild Animal Park, one pass gets you into both places. I loved going when I was kid, and I think the kids enjoy it too. The Wild Animal Park has a new tiger exhibit which is a great way to see them.

 For Jimmy's Birthday we went to Sea World.  The kids all loved it. We saw Shamu and Jimmy can now tell you how long a killer whale can hold its breath under water and how far it can dive.  Very educational!!!
