Cute boy!

Micah looked adorable sitting in the shopping cart at Safeway today, so I had to take a picture. Too bad I didn't have my camera, so will have to settle for a blurry cell phone pic!

Oakland Zoo

We piled 8 of us in the van again today and went to the Oakland Zoo. The adults all had a good laugh about one camel giving another camel "a piggy back ride." That is what we told Chloe, anyway!
Chloe, Aunt Nitiya, and I one the sky ride. Chloe had fun seeing the animals from way up high!
...but it was cold up there!
Hi Gree and Gramps!
Poor Daddy had to ride alone
(Uncle Scott was hanging out with Micah so the rest of us could ride!)
what a cute turtle!
She insisted that I take a picture of her holding some grass. Not sure why that is so exciting to a 4 year old!
Yay! Micah finally fell asleep!
Next to the zoo is a little amusement park and Chloe had fun on the airplane ride!

Golden Gate Bridge

Scott and Nitiya are here from Thailand visiting for about 3 weeks, so Ade joined us and we went to San Rafael for the weekend to see them. I loved watching them interact with our kids and love on them. Makes me wish they lived closer! They decided that Nitiya was too hard for Micah to say, so she adopted the nickname Aunt Na. So cute!! We played tourist today and walked across the Golden Gate Bridge. Gramps stayed home, but the rest of us went. It was super windy, but we had a lot of fun!

Taking a break at the SF side of the bridge...Ade snapped these pictures on her fancy new smart phone

Micah loved watching the tractor!

Hooray for an 8 passenger minivan! Chloe, Gree and I piled in the way back!!

The kids get to eat their cereal in the morning watching cartoons, and Micah used to sit in his highchair. Well, now he is a big boy and sits at the table with Chloe. I love how he feeds himself with the airplane spoon and takes such huge bites!!!

Engrossed in Micky Mouse Clubhouse!

Feeding Ducks

Ade and I jogged at Howe park today with the kids in the double jogger, and had planned to let them feed the ducks after. We didn't know, however, that the pond was going to be fenced off because there was a fishing derby going on. Oh well!! The kids still had fun looking at the ducks and throwing chunks of bread to them through the fence.

Happy Valentine's Day!

We dressed in matching colors with the kids today, so took some pictures before school today.
I love my sweet little girl!!

Daddy and Micah in similar shirts. Micah was not too happy about getting his picture taken!
These pictures make me laugh. In the one above, Chloe is looking at Micah, and in the one below, Micah is looking at Chloe. Maybe this is a situation where I could use photoshop to combine these pictures and get one picture where they are both looking at the camera. If only I had some computer skills!

Gymnastics videos

These are videos from the showcase today. Blogger was being weird with me uploading them, so I decided to make a separate post!

For the Love of Gymnastics

Chloe got to show off some of her gymnastics skills today during her showcase during class. It was so fun to watch her and see how good she is getting at gymnastics, but also a bit sad because we decided to sign her up for swim team starting in April, so she will stop gymnastics for awhile at the end of March. She has been doing gymnastics for over 2 years and she really loves it, but we will be back!!

waiting for the awards ceremony
terrible picture, but it's all I got!
Micah has tried a month of classes in the Parent Participation class, but he cried and did not want to do it, so we decided to not enroll him. His teacher gave him a ribbon for trying!

Sacramento Children's Museum

Jodi invited us to join them at the new Sacramento Children's Museum today, and the kids all had so much fun!

Micah and Chloe at the Zumba class.

Jodi took the older girls to go paint, and I played with the babies. They had the most fun climbing into the boxes and playing with golf balls!

Micah had so much fun playing with Luke's tool bench tonight that I had to take pictures of him! He played with the tools for probably about 10 minutes. Pretty long focus for such a little guy! (excuse the cell phone pics....)

Silly pictures

Chloe wanted a picture of her wearing Daddy's glasses....

...and then she wanted to take a silly picture of Daddy!

Chloe had her checkup at the dentist today and both kids had so much fun!! They both got balloons and got to play video games and ride the carousel. Oh, and Chloe's teeth look nice and clean!!
