Wonder Park

Let's go to the movies!
Wonder Park (Wonderland) is in theaters and it looked cute. On Saturday morning, I took the kids.

International Cookie Taste Test

Jacob recently took a trip into Mexico and came back with a couple new cookies for us to try. Theresa and I went to the Asian market over the weekend and picked up cookies of our own. Combine them all and we've got an international cookie taste test. The kids were excited.

Planning our St Patrick's Day Leprechaun Trap

Inspired by Phineas and Ferb, I wanted to have a fun planning, design and build session with the kids. Seeing as how St. Patrick's Day was coming up, we had the perfect opportunity. Time to make a Leprechaun trap!
First up is plan and design. We tossed around a few different ideas. Ian had an idea of a net that drops down over the leprechaun and a claw that grabs him. He's got a sad face in the middle of that net.
Alli had the leprechaun surrounded by lava. He doesn't seem too happy in there either. Love the creativity.

Celebrating Pi Day!

Because we'll use any excuse for a celebration, today we're celebrating Pi Day!

March 14, or 3/14 as we write it in the States, is known as Pi day. That's because of course 3.14 are the first significant digits of Pi π. 
I was briefly wondering if 31/4 (written with the day before the month like many other countries do) was Pi Day for the rest of the world, but, since April only has 30 days, I guess March 14th is Pi Day for everyone!
First we learned a little bit about Pi.

And then we celebrated with pie!

A Fun Sunday at Disneyland including Bacon Dole Whip

Has it really been a month since we were at Disneyland? For us, that's hard to believe. But life gets busy. Between out-of-town visitors, tee ball, and work, it's been hectic. Time to change that!

Our goal is always to get to the park around opening, and we have varying levels of success at that. Today we did not meet that goal. With the time-change over night, the kids' sleep schedules are shifted an hour later. Instead of getting up at 6:20am, it was 7:20am. With the park opening at 8am, there was no way we'd get there at opening.
Thankfully the roads were clear and the parking garage was empty, and we walked through the gates at 5 til 9. Hi Lucky!
