Week 12

It's raining, it's pouring, and what happened to spring in California?  Only one more week left until spring break, but it sure doesn't feel like it.  There's a winter storm warning in full effect! Even if the weather doesn't cooperate I'm still looking forward to the break from school.  The kids and I can use some down time, and it will be here before we know it because this week will fly by as we're preparing for Justin's birthday bash Saturday.  Lots of Angry Birds fun coming our way and still lots for me to do.  Yikes!

Enough of that--have a look at last week's pictures: 

Day 78- Sunday, 3/18/12
It is March isn't it?  Aside from all the rain we also had a hail storm or two move through this afternoon.  You should have seen the hail hit the pool--it looked like he had piranhas feeding in there.  This proves it's not only wet but still very cold in California.

Day 79- Monday, 3/19/12
I hit my 20 lb mark today!  I've been using this fitness app since Oct and have been slowly dropping the weight.  It feels good to have it gone and be back to where I should be.  Now to tone up my arms and core a bit before summer.

Day 80- Tuesday, 3/20/12
Today the sun came out and it warmed up to feel like spring!  Too bad it won't last.  There is more rain predicted for the weekend but I'll enjoy the sunshine while I can.  This is my spring to life shot with pretty spring flowers in bloom by our pool.

Day 81- Wednesday, 3/21/12
Justin was happy to be passing out his birthday invitations this week.  It's his year for a big party so we're doing laser tag and Angry Birds.  He's super excited and has been planning, list making, plotting, and scheming pretty much since right after Christmas!

Day 82- Thursday, 3/22/12
There were lots of time-out huddles in Tyler's basketball game today as his team tried to come from behind.  Unfortunately they did not make it and ended up loosing but still did well enough this season to make the playoffs next week.

Day 83- Friday, 3/23/12
I'm lucky enough to have a really flexible job so I can still go on field trips with my kids, and today I'm heading to San Francisco with Brandon's 2nd grade class to hit up the Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park.  This was my fun and extremely cute group of 4.  They all said it was "the best trip ever!" :0)

Day 84- Saturday, 3/24/12
It's couples night out, and John and I were invited by Sharon and Richie to try Crush 29 for dinner (photo courtesy of their website).  I took a different picture earlier today but didn't care for it much and wanted to remember our night more so I snagged this shot.  We had a fun and yummy night! It was great to get out for some adult time.  Good food and good friends--what more could we ask for?

That's it for this week.  Thanks for stopping by and see you next Tuesday!
