It's back!

Our camera has been on vacation in Florida since Christmas, but now it's back home, safe and sound. Here are some pics to get you started.

It's been awhile since this picture was taken, but I'm guessing that this is an after-church special lunch for the kids.

Kids with Daddy

The kids didn't see Doug for much of October--we traveled up to NY to visit my mother for two weeks, and then they were in LA visiting grandparents. Needless to say, they clung to Doug for awhile after we returned!

Silly Kids

Dad came to visit this weekend, which, by the way, was the nicest visit we've had together in years, and took these pics of my silly kids.

I think it was the first visit he came by himself and stayed with us (usually he's with another family member or he stays with his mother, my Oma). I'm sure he appreciated being awakened every morning by an exuberant five-year-old.

Fun on the Swingset

Grandma and Grandpa bought the kids an early Christmas present: a new swing set! The kids, needless to say, are thrilled to death. Grandpa finished building it just as the sun was going down and the kids were awake at the crack of dawn the next morning wanting to get back outside.

The kids love to ride on this, and I love seeing them working together to make it go higher and faster!

Cinderella had to wear a turtleneck under her ball gown...she didn't mind, though!

Brad went as Woody from Toy Story.

Last Museum Pics

There is a beautiful train section at the museum. It is a beautifully restored coach car on which Bradford and Anne love to climb.

This is the actual ship's bell from the USS Oklahoma, sunk during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. There is a beautiful area devoted to the Navy and the USS Oklahoma. It is very useful as I teach Bradford about the United States Navy.

There is a wonderful play area for the kids at the Science Museum. They both love the seesaw. Great fun for them and for me as I watch them.
