DaVinci Exhibit

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

There’s a travelling exhibit that has replicas of DaVinci’s inventions. It’s been here for a few months but I put off attending as I was hoping to get closer to DaVinci’s time in history lessons. But the exhibit is set to close on July 4th so it was kind of now or never. We were […]

best laid plans

Saturday the girls had their dance recital. It was an all day affair that marked the end of 10 months of very hard work on both their parts. They will each be taking one summer class but it doesn’t start for a few weeks. So I told them they would have the week after the […]

jumping all around

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

We had a play date at a bounce place today. Actually, it’s not really a bounce place at all even though the word Jump is in their name. There is only one bounce house and frankly it seems like an afterthought. It’s more like a McDonald’s play place on steroids complete with Nerf ball shooters […]

long week

Monday, June 20th, 2011

I’ve had good weeks before and last week was not one of them. Too many extra hours spent at dance was definitely a factor, daily headaches were another, then I started have simultaneous nausea and stomach aches. Yee-haw.
There were a couple high points- we had a play date one day that was lovely. Another day […]

Sleepless in LA

Monday, June 13th, 2011

This was my annual “no sleep” weekend as Chris went away with his dad and brother. I have to be completely exhausted in order to sleep when he’s not here but of course I still have to get up in the morning so I got 4 hours each night. On the bright side, I watched […]

blessed sleep

So both Tabitha and I had the same idea yesterday to make sure the cat had plenty of toys overnight. She prefers Polly Pockets with real hair, but in general we try to stick to cat toys. We have a lot but sometimes she plays with them in our room in the middle of the […]

Team spirit

The girls’ last dance competition was today. It’s been a long day for us all so I’ll just leave you with cute pics.

Just another manic Friday

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

Fridays are one of my craziest days though they are better since book club is over for the summer. We had a great time at park with all our favorite people but our day truly started with Disney pancakes courtesy of my Tasty Baker. By batch 3 I really got the hang of it and […]

37 + 1

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Yesterday went all right- not great but fine. Due to our vacations this year, Chris didn’t have an extra vacation day left from work so he was only able to take a half day. Now that still means he was home at 11am so it’s not exactly late, but it still felt like an extremely […]
