But Derick, being a little more bored than the rest, decided to film himself solving his Rubik's Cube. It used to take me a week to solve one side.
And after last night's dinner table discussion of how many reoccurring humanoid-ish species there are on Star Trek, Star Trek The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, I think we pretty much qualify for the Geek of the Week award.

Like what was this thing? I got a little worried that it was sniper stand. Which in a way, it is. It's a deer sniping thing. A guy with a gun sits in there and waits for a deer to come by and get a drink. Then WHAM. Venison stew for all.

This morning at the time the boys should have been heading to the bus, this is what the thermometer read:
The kids had a free day from school, as schools were closed due to extreme weather conditions.
Of course it's impossible to keep boys inside the house during extreme weather because the word extreme is derived from the word boys. I'm sure of it.So my boys decided to play some ice hockey on the pond.
We even had a hockey stick from California. It's the street hockey version, but it works.
Jonathan used a golf club. He's still a Southern CA boy at heart.
They had to use a piece of ice for the puck.

So a holiday visit to CA would not be complete without a fresh orange.
Amanda and her cousin Jade decided to make an adventure out of it.
A trick or treat adventure.
First they had to go knock on the door of the Orange tree and hope that there were oranges to be given out.
Is this one fit for a Princess?
And Uncle Jay leaves the scene before the rest of the kids caught wind of what was going on.
A long road trip.
Yes, with all the kids in the van. For some nice, quality AND quantity, bonding time.
Through wide open, and sometimes quite unremarkable scenery. This scenery was a bit more remarkable than others.
The kids seemed to handle the trip well. For some reason.
Mostly because they stood to receive the pot of Wii gold at Uncle Jay's house. And the less often we had to stop, the faster they could get there.
Awww, can't be homesick for long when Elvis can be found at Legoland!
