Dad Fail of the Day: Chocolate Cake Before 10 AM
I was washing dishes this morning and Ashtyn wanted to help, but it severely slows down the process. I told her to go read and promised some chocolate pudding as a reward for being patient with me.
When the time came to deliver - I opened the fridge and we were all out. The logical alternative to avoid the impending meltdown: cake. SMH.

Family trip to the mall today which concluded in tacos! :)

Oh and Ashtyn bribed me with a kiss to get her Starbucks chocolate milk.

Oh and we found a leaf that had a morbid note written on it!

OH, and another talent scout gave us her contact information regarding Ashtyn. Tricksters.

Ashtyn double fisting it last night at Disneyland during the Main Street Parade.

I feel this so hard.

xmcaakes asked: Do you guys have an Instagram? (:

I’m @ashesandembers and Lindy is @happilyeverashtyn :)

Lindy went to the grocery store with Ashtyn and when they got home, Lindy told Ashtyn to stay in the house while she unloaded the groceries. When Lindy finished unloading - Ashtyn had secretly found the one bag of cookies they bought, opened it, and was standing at the door eating them. 

So sneaky. But so adorable.

I will be this type of dad.

Goal in life.

This is the type of dad I want to be too.

Can you imagine the amount of cuteness there will be with TWO of kidsraisingkids babies 😍

You spelled “chaos” wrong ;)

Lindy is 12 weeks today and if you ask Ashtyn - they both have something in their belly (she gets really defensive if you tell her otherwise).

Lindy’s nausea continues, but we’re hoping it fades as she goes back to work for the start of the school year.

In a few weeks we will know the sex :)

Today was our last family trip to Disneyland for the summer! I’m pretty sure my favorite part of the day was watching Ashtyn on the teacups :) It’s crazy how much time we have spent at this place and Ashtyn and I will continue our visits all year. It’s even crazier to think that I will be bringing TWO little ones to the park in the near future!

We decided to do our gender reveal at Disneyland as soon as we find out! We’re really excited :)
