Weird clouds in the sky

The other day we had some funky looking clouds in the sky. Kristina and I were out running errands and noticed them. We saw them closer to sunset and tried to get pictures with our cell phones but they didn't turn out so well. Matt noticed them just a little bit later and took these pictures. Isn't it kinda crazy looking yet pretty at the same time??


The Friday before Easter Matt and Sam had a campout in the backyard. Isn't Matt such a good daddy cuz I tell ya I sure the heck wouldn't be doing it! Sam had a good time. He said the coyotes woke him up at 4:45am but thankfully he went back to sleep. Thanks for being such a trooper Matt!

Odd weather

I don't know if you can make it out on the mountain but it is snow. The day of Sam's Pinewood Derby it flippen snowed on the mountains!! It was so stinken cold! Just a week earlier it was in the 90s. What the heck?! It didn't last long but let me tell ya the weather has been cooky!

Sam's first Pinewood Derby!!

Sam had his very 1st Pinewood Derby. He wasn't quite sure what to expect and he really didn't want to go. Once there though he had such a fun time and loved it! He didn't have the fastest but ended up getting a certificate for the coolest design! Great job Sam! I loved your Thunder Mountain car:)

Doesn't he look so handsome in his uniform?!

Middle Child Getaway!

So the thing is my children LOVE Disneyland! I mean come on now they are my children so it should be that way, right? They always want to go to Disneyland. Again they are my children so makes total sense. Any who Riley has had money that she saved up for Christmas and her birthday and all she wanted was to go to Disneyland. Matt said why not since I still had my annual pass. When we asked her if that was what she wanted to do the poor girl started to cry and said please don't joke like that. Needless to say that is what we did. I mentioned the idea to my wonderful friend Annette and she said it sounded like a great idea!! I asked if she wanted to come along and sure enough she did! So Riley, Annette, Jess (Annette's granddaughter), and myself had a nice vacay to our favorite place to go and since we are all middle children we decided to call it the middle child getaway!! We had such a great time. Thanks Annette and Jess for coming and putting up with Riley and I. I hope to do it again real soon:) Enjoy the picture overload!

1st day there and boy are we excited!

waiting for one of Riley's very favorite rides

This one is out of order but we are waiting for the fireworks. This is one of the main things Riley wanted to see and it was almost canceled. We were so happy it wasn't! Whew!!

So many changes at CA Adventure
