Chuck E. Cheese-

It has taken one week to fully recover from our trip to Chuck E. Cheeses and finally blog it. Yes, we actually went on Valentine's Day, both a weekend and a holiday. It was packed from wall to wall, and as evidenced by Mason's cheeks below, hotter than 'H', 'E' double hockey sticks. Next time, if there ever is one during this life time, we will pick a weekday morning:)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Paris, Alex and Mason were dying for Bendaroos (as seen on t.v. :) )- so we surprised them for Valentine's Day... they were a hit!Alex fully mesmerized by a sugar cookie.

Alex saw it fit to dress as a "pirate mummy" for Valentine morning... which is actually Mason's old Halloween costume.

Paul and the kids enjoying wrestlemania, which i'm sure is great for his chronic back issues-

Paris and Mason making Valentine collages.

On Golden Pond-

Alex and I spent the morning at the Lafayette Resevoir on a paddle boat... it had been many years since I tried it and it was Alex's first time... we had a lot of FUN.

We spent a lot of time following this guy around- he was so funny and liked the attention... not sure what type of bird...maybe a pelican?

We drove up to Mt. Diablo yesterday-

Here are Paris and Alex at the Summit- 4,000 ft. elevation. There are beautiful views of the whole bay area...
... and this is the exact spot where Paul proposed to me eight years ago! We had not been here since and things were a little different this time around :)I took this picture of Alex at 11:45 pm last night. He dressed as a pirate right before falling asleep at 7:45pm and still had it on when I went to check on him.
Here is our new motivation chart... wish us luck :) When all of the squares are filled with stickers, guess where we are going!
