Reagan Library

Oh my goodness. I can't believe I got to post these pictures. Back in June, we had a lovely day at the Reagan Library with Chuck and Mary.

Letely we have been hitting up birthday parties, seeing Dora at the zoo, riding bikes, playing hockey, playing in the kiddie pools, swinging, and trying to figure out how to get Adelee to stay in bed at naptime and bedtime...ugh. Chuck's job has him working 5 day weeks with very little travel. So we are very very very happy with that!

Gordie's birthday!

Gordie wanted to see Choo Choo Trains on his birthday. So we headed to Griffith Park where we rode on a really cool and fast Merry-go-round (the kids both LOVE Merry-go-rounds!) and to Travel Town, an outdoor train museum with trains you can climb on, ride on and play with. We made it home for naps (except Adelee who found a spider on the wall next to her bed and therefore did not nap) Gordie actually was talking so long in bed that I went in to hug him and I ended up rocking him to sleep (something I hadn't done in a long time...and it was super wonderful to do on his birthday! Then we had a nice family gathering, birthday celebration for Gordie. He got awesome presents including a big boy bike! a hockey net! remote control car! a really cool Hummer truck that plays MC Hammer, and moves with a push of a button! a "Hot Wheels" loop for his hot wheels cars! Plus 2 Toy Story books! He was so happy! It was a wonderful day!
