party planner

Date night.  Make that double date night.  Dusan had it all figured out.  The only directions we were given: Dress for live entertainment and fun.  We picked up the Oliveira's and we were on our way.  With VIP parking at LA Live and reservations at the Bottle Rock in Downtown LA, the night was off to a great start.  Then we headed to Staples Center to see the LA Clippers take on the Utah Jazz from the 8th row.  An absolute blast...  I honestly don't do well with surprises, but this one was worth waiting for.

pinewood derby, take 4

Last year's car didn't make it across the finish line.  Last year, I aligned the wheels.

Needless to say I was replaced by my better half this year, and Davin's Pinewood Derby car saw a much greater success.  The original plan was to create a VW bug, but in the end he decided on a bright blue race car.  Hard to believe it was year FOUR.

like peas in a pod

Who would have thought a gymnastics mat could be so versatile?  Eli, Sierra, and Avery, that's who!

World Thinking Day

Exactly a month ago was Girl Scout World Thinking Day.  Avery and her troop headed to a local Catholic church where they learned all about different cultures, food, and art from around the world.  They got a chance to mingle with Brownies and Juniors from other troops which was the part I liked best.

cause its root root root for the TITANS...

Sunday was a perfectly blustery day for catching the Long Beach Dirt Bags vs the Cal State Fullerton Titans at Goodwin Field.

 Hunter and Davin participated in the 5th inning Chipotle sponsored competition.  Hunter had to wrap Davin like a burrito and roll him to the finish line.  Their competition was considerably younger and given quite the head-start.  They didn't win, but had a good time playing along.

the vibe around here

Last weekend was a complete blur.  With the rain thats headed our way I am hoping to slow things down a notch, cook some, edit some, clean some and just relax.  cheers.

big fun was had by ALL...

Safe to say Avery had a star studded birthday... complete with a trip to Sky High Sports followed by a family gathering back at the house.
