Mickey Mouse

We love Mickey Mouse! We went through Mickey's house in Disneyland and on our way out stopped in to get our photos taken with him. We walked right in and didn't even have to stand in line-what luck!

Mormon Battalion Museum

We stopped by the Mormon Battalion Museum in Old Town San Diego. It has been several years since we have been there and it has been completely redone. It is very interactive for the children and we loved it. They made it so interesting and the children not only learned but Devon was able to dress up, they were able to pan for gold and they took our family picture for us. Jason needed a little roughing up from Lance after the tour. Look at those happy pioneer children.

Jedi Devon

Devon was momentarily transformed into a Jedi Knight and was even able to defeat Darth Maul!

We finally made it to Disneyland! We couldn't have had a more perfect day there thanks to our magical friend Jenny who truly worked magic for us! We made it on almost ever single ride we wanted to at least once and only had to stand in line for nor more than 20 mins. Yes, even on a Saturday on the middle of summer. It was a beautiful thing! We all had our favorite rides and it was fun to watch the kids love the rides.

Madison's 5th Birthday

Madison is now physically 5 years old, however, in spirit she is a teenager! She had a "princess" party and we had about 10 lovely princesses here to celebrate. We made crowns and other crafts, pinned the princess on the castle and other games, and had a great time. She is an amazing little girl!

Science Fair 2010

We love the school science fair! There were some great presentations this year and interesting experiments. We always love the Mad Science presentation and Nature's Critters but it is fun to walk around and see what other students come up with. Alexia did her presentation on monkeys. Lauren did her presentation on lions and Devon could not help but do the infamous "volcano" presentation. He and Lance came up with a great volcano replica. And, if you look closely you will see many plastic army guys around the volcano about to perish from the hot lava. There was a poor guy in the crater. Devon loves his drama!

Uncle Ren

We have proof that Ren was here and not a figment of our imagination. It was so great to see him after returning from the middle east and to have him be in our home! We are so grateful for your service, Ren, and only wish you would move your family closer to us instead of further away!
