(Well, except for Matthew who must have been sucking on a sour patch kid)
honestly it felt kinda ritzy! :o)
All good things must come to an end. This week has been so much fun...but I'm afraid that we are totally pooped!
Oh yeah, and broke :o)
We are going to take the next few days to relax, get rooms cleaned,
and get ready for a new week.
The good news is that there are only 56 days of school left until summer break!

Bill and Jalen getting kite airborne
Hanging out on the windy beach
After the arcade, we HAD to stop and get some salt water taffy. The seaside candy man is always out on the corner of the street singing "The Candy Man Can" and handing out taffy. Everyone can spin the wheel for a chance to win free prizes.
We didn't win. :o)
We walked around a little bit and stopped to get an elephant ear! They have the BEST elephant ears on the planet. My favorite is the one with bavarian cream and chocolate! Totally sinful and totally worth it!
It was a great day!! Now we are off to have fun with day 4!

After the scary movie, we went out the batting cages to hit a few balls. It was a really fun activity for everyone, and the girls got some hitting practice too!
We ended the day with a trip to Coldstone for Ice Cream then home for Taco Salad and a movie. It was another wonderful day with the family.
I'm off to get some sleep because tomorrow is going to be blast!

We all went to go see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. It was a great movie.
Johnny Depp is such an amazing actor!
Sunday was spent celebrating 3 of our 6 teenager's birthday. We had brunch with family and friends at our house.
Oh, and we discovered our new favorite cake! It's an ice cream cake from Coldstone! It has red velvet cake and cake batter ice cream.
It was so amazing that I actually had a dream about it last night!!
Bill and Taylor...Silly boys!

I love Spring for many reasons, but the top of the list is SOFTBALL! I love to watch my twin girls Jalen and Courtney play. We had a double header game yesterday and the weather was gorgeous. But the weather can change without notice here in Oregon, so it didn't take long until we were all bundled up in hats, jackets, and blankets.
Jalen and Courtney are GREAT ball players. They both have some amazing qualities that they bring to their team. We will be having games until Mid-May. Here are some pictures from the game yesterday.
I love the side profile of the girls! So intense!
Jalen is amazing at keeping the spritis up for her team!

Courtney, Jalen, Me, Aaliyah, Bill, Kaela, Boy Alex, Girl AlexWe have a very nice dinner out for Allie's birthday. We went to the Spaghetti Factory. It was so good and it was nice to spend time together with the family. Matthew and Taylor had to work, but Boy Alex joined in on the festivities.
When it came time to sing Happy Birthday to Alex, our server asked her to stand up on her chair. So a very embarrassed Alex reluctantly got up on her chair and let us sing to her. It was really funny!
