San Diego Spring Break

Derrik attended a conference in San Diego last weekend and we tagged along for some spring break fun! We did a lot over the four days we were there so I created a slide show to share the highlights.  I moved it to the bottom of this page to make room for other posts!

Jim Henson Studio and Hollywood trip

We had the privilege of visiting the Jim Henson studio today and take a look at what goes into making one of their current shows, "Sid the Science Kid."  The muppets are officially owned by Disney now but small projects are still going on at this studio.  It is also the original studio where Charlie Chaplin made many of his movies.

The boys each took a turn using the computer that makes Sid's mouth, eyes and ears move.  Very cool.

The trip ended with us hunting for the Hollywood sign.  Just when we though we'd lost it, Derrik took us up a hill through a residential area and there it was! 

Eastery fun

Cameron and Ashton enjoyed decorating some eggs.....
The Easter bunny came by and left some treats......
There were 117 eggs to find in our yard.......
We then went off to church and then to the Hubbards to have a yummy Easter lunch.  It was a good day.  While we were driving home, the 7.2 earthquake happened down south.  We didn't feel a thing!  The Hubbards felt it at their house.

Ethan's birthday

Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes!  Ethan took the day off from school and spent the day doing what he loves: watching tv!  We took him to see "How to train your Dragon" in 3D and then out to dinner.  Then we went out for some clothes shopping!  He is officially eleven  :).
