A Full September

We had such a full month--with all the fun activities, it felt more like summer than school starting! But we still started school, soccer (Cory's plays on a team, I play in the mornings with other women from church), and I started teaching 4 piano students and next month I'll add 7 more!
The above picture is of Cory and Sophie at Legoland. I took the kids by myself (Trent met us there later at 3:30) on Monday, Sep. 26 because it was a teacher prep day at school. The park was so empty! Most rides we waited for less than 5 minutes and several rides towards the end of our day, we got to ride again and again because there was no line at all!! I guess a random Monday in September is the best time to go to Legoland.

They were setting up all their Halloween decorations for October.

We've been to Legoland 4 times in the last 13 months--and this was the first time I remembered my camera!

Annette with her 2 boys, me with my 2 girls at Pacific Beach on Sept. 17. Afterwards we ate at the Greenflash Restaurant overlooking the ocean. FUN!

Caleb and Cory boogie boarding when Bigelows came to visit on Sept. 17-19

Cory's team is called the Fire Eagles. He loves soccer!

These pictures are from the ward campout on Sept. 16.

They had various relay games involving pancakes. The kids loved it!

We took our kids to walk around the temple at night.

These pictures are in reverse chrnological order. We went to the beach to watch the sunset.
We had a lot of fun enjoying our time and the beautiful scenery!

The beach was Windansea Beach just south of La Jolla Shores.

Cory and Hailey had fun jumping off this little ledge.

I feel a certain poem coming on.......

This little hatched canopy was just too cute! (Annette--I think this might be the same exact beach we went to back in January or February of 2000 when we took that trip to San Diego and stayed in that hotel. We stopped here early in the morning on our way to the temple--do you remember?)

Pictures from our hike at Torrey Pines Reserve on Labor Day. The kids did great. It even drizzled on us for a little bit.

Trent took me to Humphrey's Restaurant for our 9th anniversary dinner. It was on Shelter Island in the San Diego Bay.

Our delicious carrot cake.
