Cool Weather

I finally got around to putting out the bricks for our patio thing. Thanks Momma for your help!
Some days are hot and some days are cold, but we are glad it's finally under 100 most days!

I've finally got a picture to show of the cute diaper bag I made. It's huge, but hey who doesn't need an oversized diaper bag with plenty of pockets for all the essentials!
Savanna went to a "deployement" at the youth center. She got her face painted there, it was so fun!

I made mini hamburgers for dinner the other day. They kids loved them!

Well, I thought I'd upload some recent photos, so enjoy!
Birthday flowers!

Christmas in August (Shawn's going to miss three Christmas seasons by the time he gets back from Iraq (he missed last year) so we had a small Christmas celebration.

That would be a pea and a cucumber from the garden I helped plant in Kanab!

Savanna loved it! Finally, she's been too scared to get that close every other time we've been there!

Other veggies from the garden: Spaghetti squash, a whole bunch of radishes, a carrot that could have stayed in the ground a while longer, yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumber.

San Diego

We went to Cici's pizza where they were having a special party and Savanna got a butterfly balloon and Elmo painted on her arm. AJ got a horse balloon, but was already asleep when I thought about taking pictures. Right after I took the picture, Savanna washed off her arm because "we don't wear tattoos to church" she said.

Gotta entertain yourself somehow on a 5 hour drive that should have been 3 1/2 hours! A word to the wise, don't drive to San Diego on a sunday evening.

Geneil and Josh let us stay the night Sunday night in San Bernardino! Thanks guys, you were awesome!

We dropped in on my cousin Anita for a quick visit. I haven't seen her in forever! Well, it seems like forever-maybe that's just cause I can't remember the last time I saw her!

We went to Sea World on Tuesday.



The Shamu show was awesome.

The Temple was beautiful! And was literally on the freeway. Good thing they have good railings, because if you jump, or fall, you'll be on the freeway!

The back
The front-I tried to miss the garden workers at the bottom!

Then we went to the San Diego Zoo. Which i wasn't too impressed with, maybe I was just really tired. The Skyfari was fun!

I held the goat for AJ to pet, but of course my kids don't like to touch furry, walking things.

AJ really liked the horsy-this is a miniature horse.

Big Ship

The Beach. This is the Coronado Beach. We also stopped on the Naval base and went to the private beach they have there. Had we not run out of money, we would have stayed on the base for a couple more days.

The beach and the zoo

We are going to San Diego this week, so these pictures will probably shortly be replaced with some of the same sort at a much better beach and zoo!!!!!
We went to the strip to see the dolphins and a few other animals.
