Capital Air Show

Here's another long overdue post. In the summer, I took the boys to the Capital Air Show in Sacramento. Our beloved Cancun came along too. We had never been to an air show and didn't know what to expect.
 It was way cooler than I thought it would be.
We saw big old historical airplanes from Vietnam, Korea and even WWII.
 We saw some crazy acrobatics. Yes, that is a woman on the plane walking around.
Some of the planes were going super fast and flying super close. It was impressive. You can't capture how fast these planes were going on video. But in real live person, it was amazing!

Our favorite plane was the Harrier jet. It was super cool to watch it hover in the air and turn.
The one thing about Sacramento is that it can get HOT. Good thing we had umbrellas.
This was my artistic photo. Actually, I was just fortunate to barely catch the plane in the shot. It went so fast!
We went because Matt loves airplanes. Maybe he has a future as a pilot at the Air Force Academy. Maybe not. But either way, he had a great time.

Sandy's birthday part 2

I forgot to post about the second half of Sandy's birthday.
After we surprised her at the restaurant, we surprised her at home with some decorations and more festivities. We got her twice.
Here are some pics with Sandy's parents.
Grandma is Emery's twin.
Grandpa is cool by the fountain.
This is one of the benefits of homeschooling - field trips! You may notice Andrew is absent. He's at school. Don't feel bad Andrew, I'm at work and not here either.
I think Sandy had a great time with her parents over her birthday week.

My birthday

A little while ago, it was my birthday.
The family treated me like royalty.
I was given the seat of honor.
Just in case there was any doubt.
It was a low key, but perfect night.
The funniest gift of all was my very own mustache to match the boys!

Halloween

I'm a little late on posting this as usual. But at least I'm posting this in the same year.
I got some tickets to a Kings game. It's not the Lakers, but this year, that's actually a good thing.
We got all dressed up for Halloween.
We watched Rudy Gay score 40 points and the Kings won the game!
Andrew's still a Lakers fan, but the Kings are moving up on his list of favorite teams.
While we were out in Sac-town, Matt and Emery got dressed up. This mighty lumberjack and nice witch hit the town and scored plenty of candy loot. Emery's been waiting all year to wear those green fingers!
