Cassie's B-Day at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

The whole family went to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, CA to celebrate Cassie's 13th B-Day yesterday. We had a great day. Mathew got over his fear of rides and he now loves them. What a big boy! A Walrus came to greet us at the window. It looked like he was trying to get us to pet him, rubbing up against the window. He was acting so cute, I had to get a picture of himEveryone was worn out when we got home. Weather was fantastic!

Fun day @ Great America

Our family and another family all went to Great America Amusement Park yesterday for the day. Kids had a blast and the adults were worn out. So, all in all it was a great day. Quinn had a meltdown when we left the park. He did not want to leave. Pictures to follow.

Back to School !!!

Well, it's that time again for the kids to head back to school. Cassie is in 7th grade, Collin is in 5th grade, and Kyle and Mathew are in 3rd grade. They will all be going to the same school which is right across the street from our house. Nice, huh? I hope they enjoy themselves and make the best of their time in school. I also hope that they will be able to meet some new friends in the neighborhood.

Time to get busy

Hope you all had a nice week-end. Will be trying to get my scraproom fixed up this week. I had good intentions of doing that over the week-end but did not accomplish that task. I am looking forward to getting my business adventure up and running. I am going to ask at the library and local store about posting some flyers to stir up some interest. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.
