Dodger/Padre Game

Blog catch-up: We went to a Dodger/Padre earlier this month. "Think Blue".

For the kids, the promotion at the stadium was "free Webkinz day". We made sure we got there early enough to get this little critters for the kids, while supplies lasted. :)

The Dodger Stadium is massive, it can hold around 54,000 people!

Steve was pointing out the rules of the game to Sam here.

It was a pretty packed house, lots of loyal fans wearing their favorite Dodger jerseys, and we wore blue to show our support. By the way, Dodgers lost, 7-4.

Anna's First Day of Third Grade

Anna had an excellent summer (we like to think), but her excitement on her first day back is a testament to how great her school is. Here she is sitting next to her friend Rodrigo.

All the kids were so quiet and expectant as parents took photos and lingered for a little bit before the school day started. Anna's new teacher, Ms. Gina, is a delight. Here's to a wonderful school year!

Striped Snakes and Sam's Tote

At our humble Santa Ana Zoo they have an excellent animal presentation, where you can see some of the animals close-up, such as this coral snake.

I also wanted to point out this bag I made for Sam to tote his treasures. The local fabric store carried this cute Eric Carle print!

Mommy and Daughter

If you are on facebook then you know that this is my current profile picture. Steve took a nice shot of us in the backyard, I like how Anna is "wearing" her snake Webkinz stuffed animal as an accessory. :)

Sea World

Wow, with school starting up the blogging has slowed down... but has not stopped! Here are some photos from a recent trip to Sea World, some of the highlights included watching the manatees, seeing the polar animals, and taking a ride on the Sky Tower. Also, we enjoyed watching the dolphins and pilot whales, and eating a slushee lemonade! Hope you like the pictures!

Disney Characters

Anna and I went to California Adventure and were lucky enough to see three of our favorite Disney characters for photo opportunities, all with short lines! There's Mickey...


and cute Minnie.

We also went on Toy Story Mania for the first time, here we are at the entrance. A fantastic 4-D "game ride".

It was a hot day, good thing there were areas in the park to cool off.

Indy Jones with Friends

Anna and I met up with her girlfriends Shannon, Jesi and Bella at Disneyland.

The girls and the moms enjoyed Indy Jones two times in a row since there was a malfunction during our first ride. Fun times!
