Adventures in California - Spring Time

Taking advantage of some fun free places to go.

In no particular order, here are some photos from the last few weeks.  We have been doing so much and having a lot of fun.  The weather has been all over the place, one day it is freezing and the next day it is super hot.  I guess that is the California Spring.

We are super excited for summer.  Just a few days ago they started heating our community pool so we have been taking advantage of that and teaching the kids how to swim.  When summer arrives we will be ready!

Below we are at the Irvine Spectrum.  We had lunch and walked around.

Emmett made Grant a flower pot for his birthday.

We have been updating our garden, adding lots of plants and making it a nice place to hang out.

We went to the Newport Dunes for the day.

We visited Uncle Roy and went to Balboa.

We have been taking advantage of some local free things to do.  We are lucky that California has so much going on.

First Ever Bike-A-Thon

Last Thursday Emmett was in his school bike-a-thon.  It is so heart warming to watch a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds bike around for the first time.  They all did an excellent job.  I only saw 2 crashes and they got right back up and back to biking!

Every child received a participation medal and we were able to raise some money for new school equipment.

 So proud of that medal.  He told me " I am rich now" ha ha

He thought it was a race at first, but the teachers made it very clear it wasn't a race.  
This is his race face!

Easter Day 2018

 Easter morning the kids came down to find out the Easter Bunny had ripped them off and given them all their toys they already had, but he threw in some jelly beans so everyone was happy anyways!

Emmett said,  " I don't think the Easter Bunny came because everything in my basket was from my room."  I replied, " that is what the Easter bunny does, he takes everything fun from the house and puts it in a basket for you"  ( I mean if we are already lying about a bunny bringing toys, lets just keep going LOL)
Calvin had no idea.  He was happy with the empty plastic eggs and the fake grass.

 We spent the afternoon at my Cousin's house hanging out and having an Easter Egg Hunt.  The kids had so much fun!

Roy Fjastad Memorial at Sea

Yesterday on March 25th 2018 we had a memorial at sea for my Grandpa Roy.
He was such a neat guy and this is what he wanted us to do when he passed away.

We all got on the boat and headed out to sea.  It was a beautiful day!  We all talked about all the fun times we had with grandpa and we watched a slide show of his life and then we hit the open ocean.

We were thrown into some huge waves that sent everyone flying across the boat!  I was laughing so hard, because everyone had to hold on.  This was a sign from him, he was saying good bye to us!  He wanted to make us all laugh one last time, I just know it.  I am laughing as I write this because it was so funny to see the look on everyone's face as we all grabbed the closest wall or table to hold on to.

Then we saw about 20 or more dolphins!  It was a great day and I was thinking about how Grandpa would have wanted to be there, so it was good to know he was there in spirit, sending us waves and dolphins for entertainment!  We miss you!
 Here is the Family!

 I just love these 2 cuties!

 Sorry for the bright flash Charlotte
