Our Mother-Daughter Retreat

Today is the day! I am so happy. After I get the boys picked up from school and take them to the church, Jason will come ant take over with them. Grace and I are headed to the airport to pick up my mom, then dinner and a hotel in Anaheim. Tomorrow and the next day, Disneyland.

We went back and forth on where we wanted to take our mother-daughter retreat this year and Disneyland won because, well, we have passes so we only have to pay for hotel and food. That and a deal on the hotel I found and a restaurant.com certificate that will almost completely pay for one of the dinners made Disneyland the perfect choice. Can't wait to hang out with my mommy and my baby girl!

A Trip to The Fair

We went on a trip to the LA County Fair with our friend Andrea and her children last week. It just so "happens" that Jonathan is studying farms this month. (Not that I choose his learning topics around what field trips I want to go on or anything).

They all wanted to be pigs.

The highlight of the trip for the kids was getting to make their own ropes.


More silliness

Seven crazy kids


We made it yet another year to fair and saw farm animals, milking demonstrations, honey bees, etc and still haven't tasted any of the odd fried food that everyone always talks about. We looked at deep fried Twinkies and Oreos and just couldn't bring ourselves to try them. Maybe next year....or not!
