A day at the bay

Our cousins came into town for a visit,
so we drove down to San Fransisco for the day to see them.
We went to a museum at Golden Gate Park.
The kids loved seeing all the stuff this place was full of.

My Mom was loved by the butterflies.
At least 3 of them landed on her at different times.
We went to a 3-D movie.

Walked through a rain forest exhibit.
Full of plants, animals and
a huge pond full of the biggest fish I had ever seen in real life.
After our adventures at the museum we headed down to the pier to get something to eat.
We went to one of our favorite places, Bubba Gumps.
It was a great day and I was so glad to see our family.
They are always so much fun to hang out with.

First day of kindergarten and second grade

Brooklyn start kindergarten this year. It is so hard to believe that now we have two school age kids. She was so excited to be in her new class. Her best little friend Joey and her got the same class, she was so happy about that.
Brooklyn got a boy teacher (as she says)this year. I wasn't able to go into the class on the first day. He wanted the parents to wait a few weeks before doing that. So this is out front of our apartment.
Blake is in second grade now, he couldn't believe that he got his own desk this year. He was so happy cause also got a male teacher. He thinks he is super funny and really likes him so far. He still doesn't like doing homework but knows he has to get it done. Time sure does fly by, my little babies aren't babies any more.

Our last supper

For our last dinner we let Daddy decide what he wanted to eat before he got to enjoy months of military food. Of course he picked sushi, which is a family favorite. It sure was nice eating together for the last time this year. Camey was here with us so she was nice enough to take this picture. Ben has already been gone for 6 weeks today. I know that means that I am way behind on my postings but I am trying to play catch up. We are all doing really good, we get to talk to Ben on Sundays. He writs at least once a week and even though we miss him like crazy, we are so proud of our Daddy! The kids and I say "goodnight to the moon every night and if there is no moon then we say goodnight to the stars. They know it's the same sky their Daddy can see. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get through all of the busy activities four kids tend to have and for giving me some quite time when I am needing my time-outs.
