Family 5k

Last month, almost the entire family ran a 5k. Matt was going to run it even with his cast on, but he fell sick that morning. So the 4 of us ran it.
We didn't really do any training. But Andrew did pretty well - 28:04 for a 9:01 pace. He was 18th for his age group (14-18 yr olds).
Emery ran the farthest she ever ran and the fastest she ever ran. Her time was 32:06 for a 10:12 pace which was 5th for her age group (10-11 yr olds). I won't tell you what Sandy and I ran. Great job Andrew and Emz! Hopefully, next year the whole family will run it together.

The Food Forest

We're getting close to 2 years into our food forest, and things are flourishing. With all the rain, it has been a great summer of blooms and growth.
Our trees are still trying to mature, and we're still trying to figure out what to put where. But things are progressing nicely.

This year we've had such wonderful multi-colored blooms. The poppies in the background have exploded beautifully.
Last year, it seemed like everything was purple. We still have a lot of Laker colors which is good.
I wish I had more time to sit outside and enjoy God's creation. He is truly a master artisan.

The Beach

We love to go to the beach. We only get to go about once or twice a year, but everyone loves it.
We build some type of sand castle every time. The things you can do with a kimchee jar!
Matt did his best to keep his cast dry.
And Andrew likes to show off his muscles now. He seems to have a few!

CA Adventure

We went to Disney CA Adventure for a day as well.
We enjoyed some new rides.
And even had time for some photo fun. Cars Land is dope. We loved the Radiator Springs ride.
A few of us got really wet while a couple of us stayed dry and took pictures.
It was another great day for the Lee family.
Oh and I forgot to memorialize my winning score from Buzz Lightyear's ride!
Still the champ!

Disney Part 2

One of the cool things about this trip is that we did some different things in the park that we've never done before. One of them was the Laughing Stock Company show at the Golden Horseshoe. It was a little old west interactive comedy show.
When they were looking for the meanest, toughest, roughest looking outlaw in the land, guess who they picked? That's right, the person in our family who LEAST wanted attention to himself, Matt.
He had a few lines to say. Doesn't he sound like the meanest, toughest...ah never mind.
It sure was a fun show with Matt in it!

Over spring break, we decided to go to Disneyland. We knew the crowds would be bad, and it was bad. But it was still a fabulous time together.
As usual, I'm the man with a plan. And we had a good one. We started off the day at Star Tours! It was dope.
Thanks to the Disney App and Fast pass tickets, our longest wait was only 30 minutes on a day when you couldn't walk side by side because it was so crowded. Andrew's getting ready to get his permit.
The girls were in the Disney spirit with their Minnie ears.
We scheduled some much needed breaks in between all of the rides.
We ended the LONG day with some front row seats at the Main Street Electrical Parade. It was a 14 hour day at Disney. I think we got our money's worth though! Thank God for a super fun day together as a family.
