Sasha & Anya do some tent camping in their bedroom.
Coleman had a birthday
Can you guess the theme?
This was the best decorated party I've ever seen!
The Birthday Boy
Kenzie scopes out the food
Coleman has boots on the ground
Sasha spontaneously sprouts Mouse Ears!
Jess continues setting out more and more neat Mouse inspired treats.
Look at those watermelon and pineapple slices!
Holly and Anya cuddle up
Muchin at the munchkin table
Coleman opens presents
And a custom card from Sasha!
Out back it's time to whack that mouse
Coleman and Anya start the assault
Carter and Dylan work it over good
And Sasha and Makenzie deal the death blow.
Treats are recovered from the body
Coleman is overcome with joy and starts crying. This sets off an empathetic response in Anya.
Finally everyone regains their composure and eats the cake.
Sasha and Anya: Mallrats
Eating lunch at the Food Court
Playing on the coin-ops
And the playground (that Sasha might be getting too big for)
Heading down to the boardwalk for the last day of the East Coast Surfing Championships
We got there too late to gather all the free swag
Anya didn't really care
She just wanted to play on the beach playground.
For my Birthday Holly and the kids got me a Paddle Board lesson and tour.
Here we are heading out into the inlet
Figuring out how to stand and paddle
There's Randy, my instructor.
On my way out of the inlet a little boat puttered by and the wake knocked me off the board.
I soon learned that I couldn't stand in the waves at all.
So I spent my time out in the ocean looking for dolphins paddling on my knees
It was still fun. I even caught some waves on my knees!
Back in the inlet and on my feet
Doing this uses lots of muscles that as a computer guy I don't ever use. When I got home I said to Holly, "I'm so sore. On the board I had to be in this crazy position where all my weight was on my feet." Holly paused and said, "That's called standing."
That thing on the front of the board is a lifejacket. Everyone is required to bring one.
Randy showing off with a cool Yoga pose
My attempt at the same pose
Back up. Paddled back. It was super fun. Can't wait to do it again.
Sasha meets her new class
The teacher had them do a little scavenger hunt around the room to get familiar
The theme of the room is aquatic
Meeting Mrs. Rychlik
Learning to use the big touch screen for attendance and rewards
After class ice cream social
Sasha hooks up with her girl gang from last year
Holly and Sasha enjoy their iced creams until they were attacked by this giant cicadae.
