Rainy Day Fun

We are finally getting some rain here in southern California. Caden and Vance joyfully wore their rain boots when we took Caden to school today. When Vance and I got home, I decided that he really needed to be able to run around and splash in the puddles. He was elated! It turns out that all of the pot holes in our car port area make great rain puddles. Between those and the water flowing through the swale, Vance had plenty of options for splashing. Even though he had the rain boots on, the water splashed so high that his socks and his pants got soaked. Then, he would run up to the water drops coming off the roof and try to catch them. Watching all of this, I couldn't help but get a nostalgic feeling about my childhood in Olympia, Washington. It rained all the time there, but as a kid, I loved it! Thankfully, Vance had a chance to play in rain today!

Our Christmas-time Disneyland Trip

Here are some pictures from our trip to Disneyland last month. We had so much fun. I always enjoy spending time with my sis-in-law, Talicee. Tevye was finally able to join us (he usually works when we go to Disneyland), and that made the trip even more fun!

Our Brave Caden

Caden had an out-patient surgery today. He did so well! I expected him to be a lot more scared, but he and Tev were playing and giggling right up until the time that they gave him the "loopy" medicine. He did not like that at all. I expected it to make him all silly, but instead he just zoned out. The procedure was over quickly, and he did so well afterwards that we were home by late morning of the same day! Now, he is recuperating on the couch while watching "Star Wars: Episode I" and drinking some Sprite. I am so proud of him for being so brave! And, thank you to Grammy who has kindly taken care of Vance last night and today so that Brother can heal!
