California for Kaylie's 16th Birthday

We decided to let Kaylie go to California for her 16th birthday. She invited her friend Emily and Max and I went with them. We spent 3 days of just relaxing, playing and having fun.

Max walking along the beach. He loves when I take pictures of him.

Yes!!! Those are the famous hot dogs from Pinks and they were sooooo good. We got the stretch with chili, the "Ozzy", and the "Today Show".

Kaylie, Emily and I at Pinks!!! We loved everything about it- other than when we parked there was an employee there taking everyones keys so he could move cars around. Max wasn't to keen on that and reluctantly gave the keys. We had to keep encouraging him that it would be all right. And in the end, our car was still there!!!

Snow Fun!!

We decided to go up to Show Low, Arizona for a few days with just our kids. We had so much fun playing in the snow and just relaxing, reading books, playing games, and just being together as a family. What a fun way to end 2008...

Trenton's Hair

Trenton had to do an oral report in is Social Studies class, which was on St. Brendon. They wanted them to dress up like the person they were reporting on. Trenton got this crazy idea to have his hair cut like the monks used to do in - like St. Brendon. Not only did he think it was cool. He kept it that way for 4 more days. I had to draw the line when it was time to go to church...
