Supposedly, the Whaley House is the most haunted home in America. I didn’t see any ghosts, but the boys swear they felt the little girl who haunts the place grab at their legs.


My niece turned 14 and we celebrated with lots of food and piƱatas. The party was 80’s themed, but I’m too young to remember the 80’s.


I’m not so sure it is ice skating when you are just sliding on very hard plastic, but it was just as tough to do as I imagine ice would be. The skates were real, and it certainly didn’t seem like the easiest form of locomotion.


Just wandering around our beautiful city.


The space shuttle Endeavour was super cool to see and was much larger than I expected. There was a lot more to this museum, covering space history, science of various ecosystems, biology, and even fire safety. And, the boys and I lifted a full-sized truck. This museum is definitely worth the trip up to LA.


A few shots from Gavin’s first Winter Ball game, which is off-season practice for the regular Spring season. He pitched his first ever high school inning, and couldn’t have done better. He faced 3 batters and struck them all out looking. I didn’t get any pictures of him actually facing batters, because I didn’t want to distract him. Great job Bub!
