Halloween Fun

Posted in Family, Holidays, and Military Life

On Monday, D’s work had some trick-or-treating set up for all the kiddos. They had candy stops at each of the conference group rooms. They also had some food from Chili’s for everyone, but unfortunately, it wasn’t very good. Someone decided to be a genius and do a fog machine which ended up making the whole building smoking. It set off the fire alarms, and the fire department had to come to clear out the smoke from the building. Since Monday evening is Little Song Bird’s gymnastics night, we had to scoot out of there fairly quickly, so we just…

Mommy’s Birthday

Posted in Family, and Holidays

Little Song Bird baked my birthday cake for me. It was her first cake ever, so it was a very special cake. She did a wonderful job with it including the yummy homemade frosting. I helped a little, but for the most part, it was her work. I loved all the gifts and cards that I received. Thanks to all who helped me have a nice birthday!

Sneak Peak at the Marine Corps Museum

The figures are cast from actual Marines in the area. They look very realistic. The grand opening will be on Nov 10th — the Marine Corps Birthday. D will…

Our Other Family Members

Posted in Family

Today, D had an unexpected day off, so we decided to enjoy our time together. We enjoyed a nice picnic by the water at the park. Then we played some frisbee and rode around on our bikes. D made some adjustments on Munchkin’s bike so she needed to get used to that, so we were all riding around the yard. It was pretty funny. This evening we are relaxing and watching the new Curious George movie. It’s been a nice day together as a family.
