Fall Break

We had a great fall break. We decided to take the big kids to Disneyland. We only had time for one day there so we decided Seth would get to enjoy some one on one time with Grandma and Grandpa (thanks again mom and dad). It was so hard dropping off Seth. We really missed him, but I'm glad we got to have a day with the big kids.

We first went to the La Brea Tar pits. They were pretty cool. It was crazy (and stinky)seeing the methane gas bubbles come up. We LOVE museums so it was a fun afternoon there. Next we went to Hollywood just to see the sights a little. That was an interesting experience. We didn't realize they have all those characters there trying to take pictures with you for tips. We must have REALLY looked liked tourists because we could hardly walk a step and another character would be there. I'm sure they target families with little boys that get excited over all the super heroes and such. Oh well, it was fun, just really crowded. I wish we had more time to look at all the hand prints out side Grauman's Chinese theater. Seeing all the history there was awesome.
The next day was Disneyland. We were there the WHOLE DAY, 9am-9pm (one of the main reasons Seth didn't come) Our kiddos LOVE all the thrilling rides, so we ran from ride to ride all day long and loved it. Thankfully the lines weren't long at all. The only problem with Disneyland is once you go, you HAVE to go again, and soon. Can't wait for the next trip!

Trash Museum

(This picture has nothing to do with the post except that its of Isaac...I just think its a hilarious picture. Yes, he asked me to take it lol)

So much to do this week, but I have to write down before I forget...

The kiddos had played really good all day and consequently the house was a DISASTER. When it came time for clean ups, Isaac came to me and said "Hey mom, how about instead of us doing jobs we just turn our house into a TRASH MUSEUM!"

lol (is it bad that I did entertain the thought myself after that??? hee hee)

Isaac's wisdom

A couple of weeks ago...

Isaac: Hey mom, I had a great day at school today. Know why?
Me: Why?
Isaac: Because I had lots of SCRIPTURE POWER!

(I know, be still my heart!)

This morning during scriptures...(Isaac was the first reader and only about 2 minutes into it, and after telling him to be quiet a number of times and then telling him to stop messing up my bed)

Me: Isaac, you are almost done, you have two lines left to read
Isaac: But mom, my brain is telling me that I already have enough scripture power today, so we can be done.

(At least we learned in conference that its the consistency they'll remember right???)
