this is how we almost got kicked out of the Salk Institute

Yes, I am that mom. The mom who's kids can't stay out of the water. I told the kids to get out of the water but, they didn't until the security guard said "if you don't keep your kids out of the water I'm going to have to ask you to leave".

Ocean Beach Pier

A few weeks ago the kids were sick so, they stayed home from school and we met up with some friends in OB who were sick too. The kids weren't really really sick, just fighting something and not up to going to school. Anyway it was a nice day and the kids had fun.

a conversation with Porter

Porter : I want to see duck land again
Me: what?
Porter : duck land
Me: duck land, is that a movie or a show?
Porter : NO, duck land the boy I met at Trolley Barn Park
Me : oh was the boy's name Declan?
Porter : NO, DUCK LAND

I tried to tell him it was Declan but, he just kept on talking about how much fun he had trying to catch lizards with Duck Land and his dad.

a night at the museum

Tonight we went to the Children's Museum for family night. Every Thursday they are open until 6PM and most of the time it is empty so, the kids have a ton of fun. Tonight they had a steel drum band playing and a fun interactive story time the kids really got into. I helped Liesl make some owl eyes while Porter played "angry birds" in another room by stacking pillows and throwing another pillow at it. ms1ms2ms4ms3
