Labor Day Weekend

Happiest Race on Earth

Last year we ran the Disneyland Family fun run and since then we decided to have
This is as one of our family traditions to end our Summer and enjoy the long weekend at Disneyland.
We enjoyed the Disneyland Family fun run on Saturday.
I ran the 5 K, JT ran 200 m, and Jake ran 100m.
Family Goal for next yr:
Run/walk 5K. Jake will be ready at that time he
will be almost 5 y/o.
Here are some of the highlights.

JT and Jake's Race

Paul's race ...

to make it in time for the Football Kick off.


We went to Adventure City and the boys enjoyed the rides. The rides are good for small kids, that does not need Parents. Except for the hot air balloon, which I do not enjoy. Thanks to my dear
husband for always taking the boys. Yeah, I told Amber I could not even ride Dumbo at D-Land.
Actually rides that goes in CIRCLES, make me dizzy.
Paul was also complimented with his Shirt. Thanks for buying the shirt Jake at
Comic Con.

Here's a clip from The Office's

Cheesecake factory

JT and Jake loves MAPS, and they especially loved the map at Disneyland Park. We ate dinner at Cheesecake factory and the boys "carbo loaded" on yummy pasta. JT and Jake's classic poses. And before bedtime, Jake and his best friend (his breathing tx.)

How fun to do the race as a family! That is such a good idea, and gets the kids excited about physical activity. What a fun weekend. Also, I am SO excited for The Office to return, and I love the Cheesecake Factory!!! (Your family picture is so cute, by the way.)

Love it! Love it! If they did something like that in Vegas, people would all be on the sidelines dying of heat stroke! Looks like you guys had fun! I liked Paul's race -- it looked just like Mark's!

Ann Marie-thanks, we cannot wait for The Office too.

Tara - I know! I think most of the husbands had the same race as Paul's.

Hi, my name is Britney Ericksen. This is SO random for me to contact you, but I found your enrichment blog about 'purse'onality (I did a google search and your blog came up) and from there, found your personal blog.

Anyway, we are doing a 'purse'onality enrichment this coming Tuesday. I love how you spoke about how we need each sister, even though we are all different. Can you tell me more about your talk?

Can you give me any other tips on this enrichment? Now that you've done it, would you do anything different?

Thanks SO much! My email is:

I look forward to hearing from you.
