My hubby

Steven had a birthday today. I hope he had a great day. We are going camping this weekend, so we tried to keep it pretty low key. He played golf, went to olive garden, played a new wii game with maggie and got some chocolate ice cream cake. That sounds pretty awesome to me.

My favorite part of the day was when he went to Walgreens at 1 a.m. to get Maggie some medicine. She has been under the weather on and off for a few days. When he left to get the medicine, Maggie said, "My daddy is so sweet. It's HIS birthday, but he went to get me medicine."

Later, she cried because "he is turning 37 and is going to be too old"!

We are going camping/fishing/jet skiing this weekend. We need it. It has been such a crazy week. We have been out every night of the week. I hope we can just relax and hang out. And Willie gets to try out our new tent. It has a special "room" just for dogs.

So, happy birthday, Steven. I hope you had a wonderful day. Thank you for being a wonderful husband and an awesome daddy.

(I took some awesome pictures of the items that Maggie bought for Steven that I will post later. They are hilarious, but very "thoughtful".)

Willie's twin

If this dog didn't have pointy ears, I think it would be Willie's twin. What do you think?

Going to Kindergarten

She was not sure about this. She told me that she was going
to sleep late and try to miss Kindergarten.

But, she had to go. She had a great attitude when we got there. No crying. No whining. She was excited!

San Francisco

I can't ever spell that word...

Yesterday we went to SF. We decided to take the cable car to get down to Pier 39.

Here are Maggie, Evan and Aiden waiting on the bench to get on the cable car. I love that they are all wearing hoods. Even though it's August, it's COLD there and very windy.

So, we waited and waited for the cable car. Guess what? We couldn't all get on the car together. So, when the next car came by, Steven and his mom got on the car to get down to Pier 39. So, we took the short jaunt downhill to Pier 39.

Well, it looked like a short jaunt. It wasn't. It was straight downhill for about 740 blocks. Literally. I know because I counted how many times our kids told us how tired they were and how sick they were of walking.

Luckily, it was a beautiful day. There was a lot of stuff to look at, too. We walked through Chinatown and stopped at a park to use the potty.

We got to Pier 39. We went to Hard Rock Cafe for lunch.

The kids got free balloons.

More to follow....

Heads up!

Maggie got a new PINK baseball glove (on clearance at Target). She came home and begged Steven to play fetch with her. What she lacks in talent, she makes up for in perserverance. She would not quit. They played catch for about 30-45minutes in the field by our house.
