The BEST park in San Francisco

We went to San Francisco the other day. We drove around a bit, saw some fun things, drank fancy hot chocolate, etc. You know, the usual.

As we were getting ready to leave, Emily got really sad. "You mean we aren't going to that fun park?" We weren't quite sure what she meant. Luckily she reminded us that one time when we visited SF we went to a really, really fun park by the water. Then Scott remembered what it was . . .

the warm-up court in the Marina District.

The kids were so jazzed to play on this "playground" you would have thought we'd driven to Disneyland. We were there for at least an hour. Really!

Heidi was happy.

She even smiled for the camera. (Unfortunately she would NOT do that for the Christmas card photo shoot earlier - grrrr. Look for a card with a girl doing gang signs and making crazy faces. Yep, she's mine.)

Molly was happy.

I love this coat. It makes her look like the most fashion-forward Jawa in Tatooine.

Emily was thrilled!

Last week the Kindergartners had their annual Thanksgiving Feast. The food was, um, good but the kids were great! I loved listening to all their fun songs and seeing their costumes!

Getting ready for the feast was a lot of hard work for the kids and their teachers. Molly was exhausted from all the preparation. Apparently she was so tired she made everyone else who came to our house tired too.

The babysitter was exhausted just hearing about it.

Note to self:

Here's a tip for dressing your daughter for church. If the crotch of the tights come BELOW the bottom of the dress, she is not wearing a dress. She is wearing a shirt.

Next time be sure to notice this BEFORE the second hour of church.

In my defense, it used to be a dress.

Running away from the girls

Scott and I escaped to Santa Barbara last weekend, not for a little R & R, but for pretty much the opposite reason. Scott ran his 3rd marathon! Amazingly enough, he beat his best time by 18 minutes and qualified for the Boston Marathon in the women's division. I raced too - but Scott is more fun to brag about.

While we were gone the girls went to stay with their cousins. I'm not sure what it looked like at their house but I have a pretty good idea anyway. Two weeks ago the cousins came to our house to sleepover.

These three played Sardines . . .

while these two made a fort and camped out underneath.

Why do we even buy separate beds?

So much for pets

Merliah, the hippy (who grew out of her costume since we bought it) and Belle went to the church Halloween party.

They won some fish and named them Nemo, Sparkles and Goldie. I've heard stories of goldfish that live for two years. Yeah, good one. Luckily I warned the girls that goldfish only live for a few weeks. I gave them this extra short time span so they wouldn't be disappointed when they died.

Here they are in action.

The next day two of them Goldie and Nemo were not very active any more. By that night Sparkles joined the party in the toilet bowl. Oh well. At least we still have plenty of candy.
