We Spent part of the day at the lake.

This is us relaxing after playing in the water.

Malcolm loved the rocky bottom I had to keep pulling them out of his mouth!

Well I have some good news and some bad news. Good news is Steven and I spent the day in San Francisco! Bad news is we are on vacation, so it is more work to switch them from raw files on my in laws computer then I am willing to put in tonight. All you get are three not so good uneventful photos. Please forgive me and I will try to do better tomorrow.

This is what we saw coming out of the BART tunnel.
Me at the Apple store
Steven looking for directions on my moms Ipad. (Please forgive this picture, it is the only one I have of Steven for today. I know it is bad on so many levels.)
The day really was a lot of fun. We did a lot of walking and people watching and found some really neat places. We love San Francisco!

This is how we ended our day! Dressed in big pink T-shirts we went to bed at Mombo and Grampas house in Moore Oklahoma.

This is how we started our day! Waiting at the airport to see if we get to fly to Oakland California.
We played! missed all the flights and went back to Mombos house to eat lunch and take a nap. We even had enough time to see Inceptoin (it blew my mind) before we headed back the the airport to try another flight.

This is us driving away from the OKC airport for the second time today. Our flight was delayed and so we wouldn't make our connecting flight to CA. Lucky for us we got the call before we unloaded, so we were able to just turn around.
Elliot was so good today even with all the ups and downs we cracked open our airplane snacks. We had some dinner. Took some baths and dressed the boys in the smallest T-shirts we could find which also turned out to be pink.
Read some books, said our prayers and headed off the bed to end our day with dreams.

Sporting the Old School!

It was a lot harder to take this picture then it should have been. Here is the proof.

Korean crayons are not super easy to wipe off they just spread. As I was wiping and re-wiping the big green spot on the wall Elliot walked up to me and said "GREEN". It did not help the situation.
My sisters, mom and I are in a fitness challenge where we accumulate points with all the good you do. I promised myself I would get to 40 points this week so instead of putting the kids to bed we went and walked the lake. It was really good to be together as a family.

Elliot was in a funk at one point today. Then it hit me what we needed to do to fix it, Block Time!

P.S. I don't know if you have ever examined a set of these stacking blocks but they have some wacky pictures on them. You should check it out!
