Tinkerbell and the Science Museum

After seeing "Tinkerbell" at the El Capitan in Hollywood and realizing that Tinkerbell got her name because "tinkering" was her talent, we decided to go "tinkerin'" too!
Charlene and I took the girls for a day out. We had lots of fun! The Tinkerbell movie was really good. The message "Do what you were created to do, and don't try to be someone else. Everyone was created for a special purpose and if they live up to that, that person will be a blessing to others around them" Is that ringing a Biblical bell??
After the movie, we took the girls to the Science Museum in Exposition Park.
They got to make goo, see the progression of a baby in a mother's womb, see their skin magnified 50 times, and compare their brains to that of a frog--what more could you want:).
Here are the pics!
There were cool animals in the discovery center

The girls are showing how hard our heart actually works

Girls--we can do this at home!;)

Thanks for another fun trip girls! We are making TONS of memories! Love you all!

The Pink Ladies

This last Friday was "Go Passionately Pink" for a Cure day at our school in honor of our sweet principal, one of our kinder teachers and our wonderful librarian who are all battling breast cancer (actually Shari is now officially Cancer free--YIPPEE!).
All of these BEAUTIFUL women are showing such courage and grace--they are lights for us, so we wore pink for them. We love them all so much!
If you desire to help, you can make a donation online at the Susan B. Koman cancer research fund. This disease will either affect you, or someone you love sometime in your life. Help find a cure!

Kelsie, You are such a BLESSING!!

I am SO thankful for Kelsie! She has been such an amazing blessing to me! We have called her on the spur of the moment lately to watch Jenna and Owie for a few Bible Study nights and she always welcomes them with open arms. Both of the kids LOVE HER and so do we!
You are going to be one amazing mom Kels! Thanks for giving of your time, and for loving our kids so much!
We MUST thank Ricky too!

While Owen and Jenna played, Kels took about 200 pictures (no--I'm not exaggerating:0)
These are some of my favorites! The kids came back fed, bathed, and HAPPY!! They love Kelsie an Ricky's house!

Amy got to help out one evening too! You are another one of our special blessings Amy! We love you!

Amy's friend Shelby got in on some of Owen's flirt action

Owie LOVES otter pops

Kelsie, Jenna, and Owen

I LOVE this picture!

He got a hair cut after this one ;0

Owen LOVED playing with Kelsie's dog Sugar through the glass door. She would jump up on the door and her would CRACK UP laughing. This entertained him for quite awhile.
Thanks again Kelsie! I can't wait to return the favor in a few months!
