Happy Birthday Uncle Mike!

My cousin Mike (who I call Uncle Mike) turned 50 on Saturday.

Yes, that is a stripper pole

Fair Oaks

In my continued education of the Sacramento area Lee and I went to The Fair Oaks Bridge.  

We also brought Bear, his dad's dog.


Fair Oaks Bridge

Bear loves Lee

and sticks

Lee told me it was a good thing Bear came, otherwise I would have had to fetch all the sticks.

Later, we had lunch in Fair Oaks Village

At first I was confused by the Roosters on all of the signs

One of the MILLIONS of wild roosters
But I quickly realized that Fair Oaks Village is INFESTED with roosters.

I'm excited to live in Sacramento!  Maybe I will have a pet rooster...

Happy Birthday Jon!

Jon Tracy turned 27!!!

He celebrated by:
Making a mask out of a pita

Making an obvious visual connection with the beef kabob

Blowing out the candles on his mini cake

I went to LA with Lee, his mom and his step dad to visit some of his Southern California family.

Highlights included the Giants/Dodger Game...

I think not

1. Lee's hair?
2. Lee's aunt and uncle are Dodger fans (I forgave them)
3. Although this picture implies otherwise, I am not pregnant, nor did I wet my pants

That's all you get.  After this my camera died. :(

and brunch in Malibu!

Restaurant in the sand? Yes, please!

Lee wore his "brunch shirt"...and I'm dating my father.

I finally caved and went to the driving range with Lee.

Step one: tokens

Step 2: grab balls (hee, hee)

Step 3: Choose your station?

Step 4: Swing away!

Lee and I both had important goals for the afternoon:

Lee tried to tee off into this cart

and I tried not to flash anyone

One of us was successful...

I took on the task of making playdough from scratch with my students

Professional playdough-making supplies

The children were riveted by my flour measuring explanation

I was accused of adding eggs when they weren't looking

Everyone got a chance to stir

Then this happened

We heated it on the stove

and added food coloring

Rain Delay

I won tickets to a Giants game on the radio! 

Unfortunately, it was raining, but that didn't stop us...

Oh wait.  It DID stop us.

This is my "rain delay" face, and Lee's "I got a free magnet!" face.

It wasn't a total bust; however:
This guy had it WAY worse than we did

Plus, I had this celebrity sighting!

Four hours later, and it was game on!
Just another beautiful San Francisco Day!

and I saw Tim Lincecum pitch

This girl is in my class:

While it may look like she is in physical pain, Jordan is actually so excited about being on our farm field trip that she is pulling at her hair.

The other day she showed me a hairdo she created while eating lunch in the cafeteria:

  She told me if I ever wanted to recreate this look all I had to do was turn my hair in a circle over and over again.

She is so funny I can hardly stand it.

Happy Easter!

A student gave me a plastic egg today and told me it was FULL of candy. LOTS OF CANDY

 I opened it to find all the Transformer chewable vitamins that a person could ever hope for.

Thanks, Oliver!

Disc Golf

Jon and Lee love disc golf.  They can throw a disc across a football field.  I can throw one near my feet.  It was fun anyway.

Hiking to the tee? hole? starting point?  Whatever.

Jon points out my disc which has, predictably, ended up in some bushes.

Lee is good at this

I pretend that I am

Happy Birthday, Happy Jack!

My friend from camp celebrated his birthday by going to the preseason game between the Giants and the A's.

 In case there was any doubt, Jack is an A's fan.

 I am a Giants fan

And Jon is a ninja?

Lee, Jon, and Sherwood spent a majority of their time trying (and succeeding) to take creepy pictures together.

Not so creepy

You're getting warmer...

 Later, Lee and I documented this night with a cute picture:
