Spring Break in San Diego

We've been having a great time exploring San Diego. Our hotel is in Carlsbad, which is close to Legoland, La Jolla (great beaches), and the SD Wild Animal Park. We're just up the coast from the Zoo, Sea World and the amazing San Diego Bay. We're off to the pool on our last day, but I just wanted to give you some peeks at the fun we've been having. Wish you were here!

Whole Lotta Scouting Goin' On

Our weekends (and weekdays for that matter) have been so busy. I'm just catching up on posting the fun stuff that's been going on around here. Here are some recent Scout pics:

The Blue & Gold ceremony includes a family dinner, skits performed by the boys, a table decorating contest and recent awards for the Scouts by the Cubmaster. It's fun to see the show and cheer for the boys. They are learning great skills.

We ended the last week of cookie sales with a booth at one of our local grocery stores. When the girls got antsy (we were there for three hours) we played Chinese jump rope to get the wiggles out. I think our customers actually enjoyed seeing that just as much as our (almost) polished sales pitch. Much of Girl Scouting is learning to have fun, after all.

A Shower for Danni

Our friends and neighbors, the Johnsens, are expecting a baby soon and we all got together to throw Danni a shower. Of course, I had to make one of my diaper cakes. I think this was my biggest one yet.
We also played games and mingled with new neighbors. What a great excuse for a party!
