We decided to take a mini road trip today. I read about a cool artistic park in Escondido that's free and a cool learning experience. After driving for 1 1/2 hours we got to the park and it was closed. Ever seen National Lapoon's vacation? There was no moose to punch. So now we are in San Diego with nothing to do. Devin makes some calls and looks up stuff on his phone and finds out that if you go to Legoland after 3:00 you get in for half price plus you get a free ticket to come back another day!!! We were soooo happy!
This is the kids at the park, they were happy even though we couldn't get into the part of the park we came for.
Legoland was so cool. They even had a tree made out of legos.
This is Sassy showing off her new boots. LOVE THEM!
This is the boys posing with a Bionicle. That is the coolest kind of lego for those of you aren't in touch with legos.
And this is me and Jack with a Lego mom. I have alot more pictures and videos, but i'm tired so this is all you get for now.

Owen's Recital

Tonight was Owen's 2nd recital. He was totally cool not nervous at all, I wish I felt as calm. This is him as we were walking out the door.
It was dark with a few lights on stage so this is the best picture I got of him. He did so good. I had to fight back tears the whole time. What a rockstar, I couldn't be any prouder!!!
This is O with his drum teacher, Billy. Such a great teacher and a great guy.
These are all the other drum students. It was so much fun to watch all the other kids play, but really none of them came close to Owen!

Bailey's Birthday

This is Jack enjoying Bailey's birthday cake on my bed. He has a grostesque injury on his foot and isn't able to get around right now. I was going to post a picture of it, but then I remembered that Judith said that blogs are not a place for those kind of pictures, so if you want to see it let me know and i'll e-mail it to you.
Ethan and Owen eating cake and being silly. I swear my kids own shirts, they just don't wear them at home!
And of course Ava got way into eating the cake. She dropped her fork and was picking up huge pieces with her hands. The girl loves food!

I can't believe Bailey would have been 6 years old. I always watch the kindergardners at the boys school and try to picture her there. Who would she hang out with, what would she like to play with. I do miss her everyday, but I recognize how blessed I am to have 4 kids to love and raise on earth. Happy Birthday Bailey!

Jack going to preschool

Jack goes to preschool at Miss Shawnie's house again this year. He loves it and he's learning so much. I thought these pictures of him were soooo cute!!!

Catching up with pictures

In September Sassy was playing with Emma and a push toy and this was the end result. Her toe nail was completely ripped off! This picture was taken 24 hours after the "incident" go ahead make it bigger I dare you! I was able to stop the bleeding with a pressure bandage and a sock. Poor baby It had to hurt so bad. She was so tough. She only cried for a little while then wanted to play again.
This is her only 20 minutes after losing her toe nail! I feel sorry for anyone that tries to mess with her!
This is Ethan and Owen at Disneyland. Today was our last day of our passes :( I think we are getting more for Christmas.
This is Owen and his class doing a Readers Theatre for the younger kids at his school. Yes I know, the kids in his class are short :)
This is Sassy at her ballet class. We go to a mommy and me ballet class and we love it!
Ethan got the V.I.P. award in September. YAY Ethan!!!
I made this Halloween skirt for Sass. She loved it.
This is Ethan trying to do his homework and Sassy doing her work. She wants to be a big kid sooo bad!!

There I am a little caught up. I'll try to be better about posting. And yes I realize there are no pictures of Jack. He won't let me take very many pictures of him. He is soooo cute though!! I'll try to post more later.

Can you see the disgusting growth on the left side of Ava's gum? She gets one of those before she gets a tooth. It's so gross and it's right in the front!!! My poor baby, at least she is cute. She can get away with something that gross. And on the plus side it helps me with my diet. I just look at it before I eat and I get so grossed out i'm not hungry :)

We got to go with Mom's club to a tour of Red Robins. It was so fun. The kids got to design their own burger (they all picked cheese only) They had a blast and the best part was they gave us gift certificates for free kids meals so we went again the next night! I am going to miss summer and these fun out of the ordinary experiences!!
