career day

it was career day today. no surprise that micah dressed as a soldier. his rain boys from last year still fit so he was all set to go.

i was surprised by malia's choice though. she's been liking a lot of different things lately, but she wanted to dress up as a Disney artist. i loved her choice of course. she made a name tag. i gave her a lanyard, which you can't really see, but it has Disney pins on it. and roel took these photos at lunch time, so she didn't have her big sketch book with her in which she made a few Mickey drawings.

i'd be on cloud 9 if malia became an artist. i'd be an absolute wreck if micah became a soldier. still proud though.

baptism birthday outing

happy baptism birthday to lia! and since it was also our anniversary, we went to eat out at olive garden. i had a kids eat free coupon and we had a gift card. i'm a cheap date. malia has a love for alfredo. my picky boy didn't like the breadsticks this time around and neither did i. or maybe we are just used to the one at o's american kitchen. it was a good lunch though.

president's day

what are we doing for president's day? that's all they kept asking. we don't always have to do something is what i tell them. i'm happy just laying on the floor all day hahaha. so we took them to golden spoon. malia and roel always get the cake batter flavor. micah and i have a new love for the salted caramel flavor.

my 5 minute valentine decor

because our garage is still full of stuff, i don't exactly feel like decorating much. and whatever decorations i have are probably in the garage somewhere hidden anyway.

the answer is simple, clean the garage, and be finished moving in. 

easier said than done people.

the zoo

yay for the zoo! we pretty much go to the zoo once every year or every other year. roel is not fond of the zoo and i don't want to see monkeys so that probably explains it. my kids are wild monkeys so i don't need to go to the zoo to see them. but the kids love to go, so that's why we'll go.

even better to go in a big group! these kids saw a rhino pee for what seemed like 2 minutes straight, right in front of them. they saw snakes, insects, desert tortoises and rode on the tour bus. m&m got to see their beloved pandas.

they had tons of fun. here's my lion king girl on the lion. and micah begged to buy these binoculars, with his own money of course. at least he put them to good use on the tour bus.

see you next year or the year after that zoo!
