What a blast we had this weekend, hope you did too. There was a ton of family stuff, some sewing, some cleaning (gasp, yes!) but with the music on loud, and a whole lotta eating. First, Nicholas got a new library book bag...
Linen, ikea red stripes, and a little bit of "Thomas the Tank Engine." It's simple and uninspired, there it is.
Friday, we didn't make it to Disneyland (going today instead), so we made our first trip to one of those classic golf 'n'stuff places for mini-golf, kiddie rides, and arcade games. Let me just say, my family is seriously cute. We all stink at golf and Olivia thought it was her job to run around picking up our golf balls off the green. Good times. Needless to say, we didn't keep score.
(whee! Yet not quite Disneyland)
Saturday, we took the kids and their friends to Expo park, to the California Science Center and to the Imax theatre, which was also good times.

For any of you who live near Los Angeles, I'd like to point out that the California Science Center is free. Mmmhmm. FREE. Bring the kiddos for hands-on exhibits that will keep them entertained for hours.
Sunday was a bit lazy, but I did manage to sew up one more set of these cocktail napkins...
(In the shop)
Memorial Day, we did some much needed house cleaning while Anne was in the kitchen for hours, whipping up a Banoffee pie (banana + toffee) that tastes a lot like dreams come true...
It starts off with a graham cracker crust, then a pudding similar to dulce de leche (it involved sweetened condensed milk, a water bath, and stirring every 15 minutes for an hour and a half), fresh banana slices, and homemade whipped cream. Need I say more?
Diet: officially ruined. Thank you, Anne!
In the afternoon, we took the little ones to the park near our house and ran ourselves ragged...
Finished the day with chinese food and then went home and passed out! Honestly, I think we've been having a little too much fun lately, but I promised the kids Disneyland today ~ and I like it as much as they do.
