a "Fall" getaway

It was time for a much needed getaway... the school year was in full swing and I,  along with the whole family,  needed a break... just to get away and be with each other and  RELAX!
We headed out to Palm Springs (our neighbor gave us his time share for the weekend- Lucky Us-). You will notice from the pictures that we didn't do a whole lot but hang poolside and have fun. It was hard not to, the weather was a perfect 85 degrees!

Night Swimming? You bet ya!

Out on the town!

While shopping the girls found these they, wanted to get these for new baby boy cousin...

 That's a wrap...
looking forward to next getaway!

September/October School Days

First Day of school Handmade Portraits
Hilarious, if you ask me! Love these classic Kindergarten projects. 

Charger Spirit Day at school! 
Ellie wore her daddy's old Charger sweater. So Cute !

Fire Station 22 Field Trip
The pros about working at your daughters' school, is that you get to sneak off campus and go on field trips with the class. I was able to walk with the class to the fire station closest to our school. There, the girls got a tour and continuous lessons in fire safety. 
 Mrs. Sykes all dressed up!

 Official Junior Fire Fighters

Harvest Festival 2014
The girl were beyond excited for this festival. This is the first year that they have attended the festival as actually students. They make pretty cute 80s Rocks Stars. 

My rock stars partied hard! 
It's not all fun and games at school ... 
homework is a part of it and the girls actually love having "work" to do at home.

Silver Gate Surf Contest

The girls participated in their very first Surf/Boogie Board contest this past weekend! The girls had a blast! It was a super fun day spent on the beach, boogie boarding and hanging with their new kindergarten friends. 
Boogie Kinder Division I and II
Ocean Beach - Tower 5
Lola and Ellie were beyond excited to compete. 
The waves were pretty gnarly this day and the water was a bit cool at least at 12:00 when their heat was being held. So they spent some time getting used to the water!

Ellie was up first.

Since the waves were a bit hard this day parents were encouraged to join the kiddo in the water. 

Blue Jersey was standing on the Boogie...tough competition!

Ellie's good friend Molly from her class was in her division!

Lola up next.. after a pep talk from mom.

Pizza Lunch Break

So after the girls were done competing, we had a few hours to hang out until the awards and ceremony. 
Of course friends plus beach make waiting around fun!

My Girls.. I'm so proud of them!

Awards! Medals and candy all around! 

Lola won the award for "Biggest Smile on the Wave" She got a extra goody bag. 


It was such a great day and a fun experience for the girls. They couldn't stop talking about the day and even wore their little medals to school the next day! I'll say the girls are pretty lucky to attend a school where they hold surf contests.
