So there were a few more fun things to record than I thought! (that's a good thing, right?!)
Here's part 2
----- Fishing for Crabs ----
with a piece of broken pvc pipe
and cheeto's for bait
----- Backyard Pool Parties With the Cousins -----
----- Making Omelettes -----
(just like Mike)
for breakfast every morning
in his new one-man-pan!
And, last but not least
----- Fun (& Mandatory!) Family Vacay -----
to San Diego
(With 3 of 5 family members having jobs, it took a little work to make sure
we had at least one vacay with everyone present & accounted for this summer.
It was well worth the effort!)
Enjoying the Natural History Museum
And an awesome 3D surfing movie (can you tell Porter liked it?)
The USS Midway Aircraft Carrier
Flight simulator pilots
And Kenzie made a friend :-)
The Mormon Batallion Museum
(During the Mexican War of 1846, U.S. President James K. Polk, requested 500 Mormon men to help in the war effort. Despite the fact that the Mormons were in the midst of escaping religious persecution in the east, they accepted the call, and marched the 2000 miles from Iowa to San Diego, establishing/building a new wagon route, and then building Fort Morris in Los Angeles, and a courthouse in San Diego before their discharge. They were never faced with battle, unless you count the "Battle of the Bulls" when they were attacked by a herd of wild cattle in Arizona :-)
Panning for fools gold
And pumping a little water
Doing the laundry
And lastly, some simulated surfing for Porter on the FlowRider Wave Machine
on Mission Beach Boardwalk!
Mandatory family vacations aren't all that bad :-)
Ssummer makes for warm & happy memories!!
