President's Week

Last week Addi had the whole week off of school.  This was after she missed 6 out of the 10 previous days of school due to the lice and an ear infection.  So, needless to say, I was burned out before the week even began.  One day, I took them straight from the gym daycare to the Ikea daycare just to get a break.  Which by the way, it was worth potty training Von just so I can drop him off at the Ikea daycare.  I see lots of meatballs in my future.  Here is Addi entertaining herself practicing her "planking."
We had one 80 degree day, so we hit up the pool.  We also hit up just about every park in PQ and the tennis court.  Addi is surprisingly good at tennis, probably from all of the Wii she has been playing.  We are going to sign her up for tennis lessons this spring and she is excited.
On Friday, we went out to Poway Lake to feed the ducks and hike around.  Von could have hiked forever.  Every time my pregnant whining self wanted to take the route back to the car, he refused.  And too tired to fight him, we just kept going and going.
Saturday, we went with Ian to the zoo.  We spent a couple of hours there and then went to Phil's BBQ for lunch.  Best BBQ I have ever had.  Hands down.  There will be many trips back.
And then after Phil's we went down to Belmont Park at Mission Beach.  The kids went on a few rides and played in the sand.  It was a great day.  It had been a long time since we had spent a whole day together as a family just having fun.
And then there is today.  Things are back to normal.  Von and I are back to our regular gym/umizoomi/nap routine while Addi is at school and it is so nice.  It was raining when we had to get Addi from school and the kids just can't resist the puddles.  I think it is time to invest in a new pair of boot for Von.  He has outgrown his and always ends up like this every time it rains.  I heart instagram, by the way.  It is rare that I have my camera with me to capture all of these moments, so it is so nice to be able to take and edit my photos on my phone.  The iPhone really is the greatest thing ever invented.
