Sounds weird right? That's what the principal told us when talking about the kindergarten class of 2012. Can't believe Kayla is in 'real' school now. Only 12 more years to go after this year. She actually was pretty nonchalant about the whole thing. Woke her up at 7 am, she rolled around a little bit.
Picked out her outfit for the day.
"Pink goes with pink right?"
Brushed her pearly whites.
Ate a breakfast of cereal bar and boxed milk. We didn't have time to grocery shop after returning from our trip, and our shelves/refrigerator were bare to the bone.
Walked big sis to her 3rd grade class.
Walked back home since her class didn't start until 9 AM, which was actually 10 AM. We didn't get the memo.
I had a shoot in Southern CA yesterday, and brought the family along for a mini vacation. We spent today visiting Santa Monica, and enjoyed some nice sun, rides, cotton candy, swimming, and that wonderful Southern CA traffic.
First stop was Pacific Park, and of course the kids wanted to ride the ferris wheel. Kayla kept her hands on her hat the whole time, afraid it might blow away or something.
Then on to more rides.
So amazing how a simple park ride can provide such joy to a child.
What's even more amazing is that they finished a cotton candy in less than 15 seconds.
I swear, they were attacking that cotton candy like piranhas.
I think talking to each other was more fun than this ride was.
After Santa Monica, we headed back to the hotel and the kids wanted to swim. In fact, I think that is probably their favorite part of going on vacation. That, and eating on the hotel beds.
We enrolled Kristin in a few summer classes this year, and one of them was cooking. She likes the show Bizarre foods, so now she has an opportunity to make her own bizarre foods. She brought home a few items she made during the week, but off the top of my head, she made cinnamon toast, egg rolls, fried rice, ice cream, lemon frosted donut, smoothies, italian zucchini, fruit salad, and her favorite thing of all.......this jello fruit cup. Of course she was kind enough to share with Kayla.
