SCMAF Track Meet

Anna ran a 2:50 in the 800 meter at this track meet (that's 2 times around the track, half a mile), and came in third place for her age group. Well done, Anna!

Crystal Cove

Now that summer is here, you'll see me catching up on my blog entries. But I wanted to post these photos from our recent trip to Crystal Cove. At Crystal Cove we saw tiny crabs, sea urchins, sea anemones and various types of shells. We also had fun playing jumping games with seaweed. Enjoy! (All of these photos were taken with my iPhone.)

Grandparents Day

Earlier this month my mom attended Grandparents' Day for Anna and Sam. Each grade, up through sixth grade, sang songs and recited poems. My mom took an extended lunch hour from work to attend this event. The kids were very happy to see her. Happy Grandparents' Day!

Snapshots from Marilyn and Ted's Visit

Waiting for pizza after Anna's track meet...

See Anna go!...

What are we intently watching on the iPad? Stay tuned to find out...

Tasty hand-stamped, handmade cookies!...



The answer to the question, what did we watched several episode of this week?...

Our new obsession...

Chopped! On Food Network and streaming online...

Last but not least, Michi getting lots of attention here!

Thank you so much, Marilyn and Ted, for driving down and taking care of the kids! They had so much fun with you at Mile Square Park, Ruby's on the Pier, and Bolsa Chica... and making cupcakes and cookies with you! What a treat! What a fun time!

Burgers, fries, and onion rings at the Habit, Salted Caramel cones at Pinkberry, intense dodgeball against the garage, and Deluxe Bananagrams. What a fun day!
