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:

Padres Little League Day

The boys got to participate in this year’s Little League Day at Petco Park. They got to parade around the field with their team before the game started. We ended up sitting field level with Gavin’s team. Connor and I also visited his team, sitting up on the second level on the 3rd base side.

After the game, the boys had fun running the bases. Now, they have ran the bases at the Dodgers, Angels, Athletics, and Padres stadiums!

Connor’s coach got a few good pictures from the parade before the game:

Connor’s Kindergarten Performance

The Turtleback kindergarten classes invited all their parents to have a nice picnic on the lawn by the school’s friendship garden. After everyone got settled in and ate some food, the kiddos performed a cute arrangement of songs they have been learning with Mr. Lee, their music teacher (playing guitar in the videos below).

It was a beautiful evening and they did a magnificent job! After the show, the parents got to visit and tour the friendship garden while the kids ran around and played.

A few of the songs they sang (sorry they are shaky):

Visiting The Zoo

It had been months since we had visited the San Diego Zoo, so we were excited to get to go back and say ‘hi’ to all our animal friends. Now that the baseball season is done and summer is almost here, we should have lots of opportunities to hang with the wild animals.
