Building Flower Pot Holders

It was rainy and cold outside, so luckily this month’s build was moved inside. The boys made cute little flower pot holders.

Little League: Red Sox vs Blue Jays

It was cold and sprinkling off and on most of the game. They ended up having to call the game after the fifth inning because of the rain. But, Gavin’s baseball team won the game!

Disney Magic At California Adventure

It was a cold and drizzly day when we woke up to head north to Disney California Adventure. But, there must have been some Disney magic going on, because although there were rain and clouds all around the park, directly overhead there was sunshine. We managed to avoid the rain the entire day.

We went on nearly every ride, including the epic Radiator Springs Racers. The boys even got to try zip-lining in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. I was impressed by Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters, where you sit in robotic cars that dance around together to choreographed musical numbers.

Gavin convinced me to go on the Grizzly River Run because you could walk straight on. Sane people didn’t want to go on it because it was too cold. We got an entire raft to ourselves, sitting across from each other. Because I weighed more than Gavin, I ended up going back-first down each drop, getting drenched every time. Gavin laughed harder than I’ve ever seen… but I do have to admit it was pretty funny. I was wet for hours after.

Connor’s birthday wish came true, when we got to meet Spider-Man and get his autograph. They say to never meet your heroes, but Spider-Man seemed to be a pretty cool dude!

Little League: Giants vs Reds

It was Connor’s last t-ball game. He had a blast this season and is looking forward to playing baseball again next spring!

Connor’s 6th Birthday

My little Dokie’s birthday fell on a Monday, so we had a cake for him the at a family get together the next Sunday, which happened to also be Mother’s Day. I can’t believe Connor is already 6 years old! In my mind, he will forever be the fun loving little toddler ready to take over the world.

Gavin’s 3rd Grade Performance

The 3rd Grade classes sang a bunch of Broadway musical numbers for this year’s performance. Gavin did well up there in front of everyone, even though singing isn’t his favorite thing to do. The kids must have put in a lot of work all year long to memorize both the songs (9 of them!) and the movements.

A few of the Broadway numbers the kids performed:
