Zach's 5th Birthday at Pump It Up

These are pictures from Zach's 5th Birthday Party at Pump It Up. Everyone had a ton of fun and Zach loved having his cousins, friends and school friends there. All the kids were sweating from running around. It was a perfect time to wear everyone out, get a full belly with yummy pizza and then go home for naps. For the first time Zach enjoyed having everyone sing him Happy Birthday, and he even had fun blowing out the candle. In the years past he has always had some issue with it and ended up crying. He was all smiles this time though, and I think having school friends there made all the difference. Jilly was little miss social and Luke just kind of hung out and then just wanted mom to hold him. Balloons are always a big hit with all the kids. I think even the parents enjoyed it because they could just let the kids run around without worrying about where they were going to run off to. We had the whole room to ourselves. Looking forward to Zach actually turning 5 in 3 days...he keeps asking me when he is 5 and how many more days. I think in his mind time goes really slow, but in mom's mind time has flown by and my little baby is growing up. WOW!!

Ruben H Fleet Science Museum

Mike and I decided to take the kids to the science museum today. We both had been
numerous times as kids for field trips, but had not been back for a long time. It is
Science Week here in San Diego, so we decided to take full advantage of free admission.
We all has a blast and there were so many cool gadgets, wheels, gears and just plain interesting
science related things. Of course Zach was in heaven with all the things that spun, and Luke and Jillian had fun seeing all the moving parts. Zach and Mike even went to see an IMAX movie on the Hubble Space Telescope. The fountain that is in the first picture here is actually the fountain where Mike proposed to me so many years ago :). Needless to say the kids were exhausted! Good fun had by all! We will definitely be going back...

Update on grading
