Random Update

I have not posted in AWHILE!
What have I been up to?
Nothing too exciting...
just keeping up with the everyday stuff.
Kids, kids activities, cooking, cleaning, organizing.
Thinking about all the projects I WANT to do, but not making to0 much progress.
I will have to correct that.
The next two weeks the big kids are on fall break.
Ellie is off this week.
What do we have planned?
Well, Ben went here with his Academic Decathalon team.
Do you recognize the skyline?
I have never visited this city...just the airport.
It is Chicago. He left yesterday and will be back on Saturday.
I am sure he will have lots of fun!

Madeline and I will be going to San Francisco for a quick over night visit.
We definitely plan to go here. We also have reservations for Alcatraz.
We also want to hit Union Square, Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, ride a cable car...
I think we will have plenty to do.

I finally got brave enough to trim "E"'s hair!
It had grown very long!
She has only had one trim...
before she turned a year old.
Her hair was turning quite green on the ends.
We were calling it mermaid hair.
I may need to have someone fix it up in a few weeks...

But, I think it went pretty good for MY first hair cut!

Yesterday we went to what has become Ellie 's favorite place.

The New Children's Museum in San Diego.

She really wanted to bring her big sister (unfortunatley I did not take any pictures of her yesterday :(

They have this really cool rainbow tunnel jumpy that has become her favorite!!

She would have nothing to do with it the first visit.

There are many other fun things to do there...

very focused on hands on art, there is a rain house,

a rock wall, clay, chalk, paint, chariots....lots of fun, not your typical museum.

Have great day!

  1. Yes, good job on the first hair cut, mommy. Well done. So, what is in San Fran? Love that you are taking advantage of the beloved fall break to travel a bit. M and I went there when I was preggo with the twins...it was wonderful. Enjoy your time. Can't wait to see more pics.
    Miss my friend. See you in Text land. Hi to all.
