Field trip to Natural Bridges

A few weeks ago, we went on a field trip with the boys preschool
to Natural Bridges State Beach.

We didn't go anywhere near the water with all these kids!

We did, however, play with magnets in the sand.

Who knew that there was so much black iron ore in the sand!
(I did have to google that because I didn't know what it was called and black magnetic stuff didn't seem like a very clear term!)
It was pretty fun tho!

Last of Luke's party

We definitely should have waited for this weekend to have the party because it is beautiful here now!
One of the activities for the party was for the kids to make yak.
I found the recipe and Loren showed the kids

I now have more borax then I have ever needed (and I have never needed it)
Anyone have any crafty uses for it?

And the boys stealing chips while almost landing on the cake!

Luke's party

Enough about this kindergarten stuff...
back to Luke's party!

After cake were the presents!

Lots and lots of cars!

And a little girl beating up my dad!

And another giving hugs...
This poor girl was playing with one of the remote control cars and got it stuck in her lovely, long hair!
It took 5 grown ups to get it out - they had to take apart the car and then still had to cut a bit of her hair.
She was quite the trouper...but I don't think she'll want to play at our house anymore.
Too many cars!

We got there very early today!
He is in Mrs Bricken K-1 combo class with 2 of his favorite friends from pre-school.

Happy Birthday Lukey!

My baby turns 4 today...and my oldest baby started kindergarten...
it was an emotional and draining day!

Here are a few pix of Luke's happy birthday song...with more to follow!

Isn't he the cutest kid ever!
It was a fun party!

Jack did great at kindergarten, but we underestimated the parking at the school and Jack was late for his 1st class!
It was a zoo out there...Loren had to drop me and Jack off to park and we rushed to his classroom where everyone was in circle time.
I couldn't even get a pix at the door! But I did take a pix of his door which, once I get it off the camera, I'll show you all!

More fishing

All I can say is that this has been a cold summer (not counting today, which is pretty warm).
And we were freezing when we were fishing!

My poor dad wore shorts and complained the whole time!
I ran up and down the stairs to keep warm.

This is the pier we fished off last time...moving spots didnt really help.

But it was still a fun morning!

Here fishy, fishy

So once again we tried our luck at fishing at Lake Chabot...

And once again we were not successful...

They saw a few fish in the water, and heard a few jump...but none took our bait.

As much as fish freak me out...I do hope they catch one soon!

Little Chefs

Since Loren has been home for the summer he has been doing more of the cooking, including making pizza dough!
And the boys love to help!

They are mastering their pizza making skills now by rolling out and topping their own personal pizzas.
They love to get their hands dirty.

They make yummy Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza and
Loren makes me garlic, clam and shrimp pizza.
It is out of this world!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I am suffering from a nasty sinus infection and not up for pix taking and post writing...

Random summer

Okay, I am having problem down loading new pix....
I either need a new computer or more memory and we haven't decided which is the best move yet.
So pix everything since going on vacation has lacked....
And I pretty much have been sick since we got back from vacation so I'm not much into taking pix...
My sense of smell is gone as well as my sense to taste!
I am not liking it!

A nice pix of Gloria and Uncle Wes

Linda helping Luke across the jungle gym.

And Jack doing it all by his self. He is becoming such a big kid!

ww: four square

Loren took it upon himself to teach the boys (and the neighbor boys) how to play 4 square.
I loved to play it as a kid, but for the life of me do not remember how to play.

Its been a slow learning curve...but he says that Luke is the best, so far.
So long as he gets his hands out of his pants!
