A Big Weekend


We had such fun at Wito’s 5th birthday party on Saturday! The weather was a little gloomy while setting up, but in true California fashion, the sun came out in full force right as the party started.

We had some Oh Happy Day-inspired bunting action going on, and I must say, it was adorable. (Here’s Jordan’s tutorial – so easy!) After the party guests left, we walked back to the house and crashed.

Upon waking up Sunday morning, I realized it was the last day of the Orange County Fair. Now, for the past two years, we’ve had our photos taken at the photo booth, and we knew that this year would be a make or break situation in regards to making these photos a tradition. People. We did NOT want to go to the fair. We just wanted to relax at home after the party, but we rallied, loaded the car up and took off.

Of course, once we arrived, we were all, “we love the fair! How could we not do this? HOORAY FOR THE FAIR.”

And now it’s officially a tradition.



  1. I have a love/hate relationship with the fair… but like you- once I’m there, the love part comes into full swing.

    Very, very cute tradition =).

    …& bunting!

  2. p.s.

    Love the new header!

  3. Love love love the pics

  4. Oh hell. I missed The Fair this year (caps for the deepfriedoreos–yes I just admitted it).

    Wito’s birthday looks like it was so much fun. He’s such a cutie!


  5. Awesome! I am always the one to rally the family into creating great memories. It’s always worth it!

  6. Happy Birthday, Wito! And what a cute t-shirt. Source?

  7. Aw, I just love you guys.

    I still can’t believe that he’s FIVE. I mean, I remember when you were pregnant with him. Woah.

  8. Gorgeous weekend, and happy birthday to your little guy!

  9. Such awesome photos. And I love your yearly photo booth collage.

  10. oh awesome! you squeezed a trip in just under the wire. love the photobooth series. we are on our 7th year now (or somewhere there abouts). ; )

  11. You are a better mom than I! We missed it entirely this year. We also had a tradition with that little photo booth, but last year we couldn’t even fit all of our faces in the frame. I guess we’ve admitted defeat.

  12. I love how your husband’s hair never changes but you always rock a slightly new look :)

    I swear you have the most beautiful family on the planet. Happy birthday Wito!
