"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

~President Gordon B. Hinckley

Where to start...

Okay, I guess the best place is from the beginning...

A few weeks back we had a great and busy weekend. It started out by Seth and I going to his 10 year high school reunion! Now, I must say that I have been the driving force for about a year on this one...I really wanted us to go so I could "see Seth the way he was in high school". Well, I think I put a lot of expectations on good 'ol Benson high...or maybe just his particular class, because the whole event was pretty lame-o. Nothing was organized for the reunion, nobody knew the class of '99 was even there. They didn't announce them at the game, and after getting TOTALLY drenched from the POURING rain, the group(of about 25 grads and families) spent the rest of the evening catching up...at a local BAR! Needless to say, we didn't have a lot to add in that whole scene, so we took off and headed to our hotel. The nicest part of the reunion was just having Seth-ee to myself! Thanks Nana for watching our kiddos! I think maybe we'll think twice before signing up for the big 20 year reunion! :)

OH, and we didn't get a SINGLE picture of the reunion. Blame my husband for that one...I wasn't about to be the big dork insisting on catching the memories...it was up to him if he wanted a snapshot!!

Moving on...

We came back on Saturday, picked up our kids, and headed over to super target! It finally opened down the road and I'm STOKED! We got all the traveling necessities and got back home, did some laundry, RE-packed, and went to bed. Woke up early Sunday morning, and hopped in the car and traveled to our favorite getaway destination...CALIFORNIA!! This time, we left Mickey and Donald in Anaheim and took a trip with the whole Becker clan to San Diego.

We went STRAIGHT to the beach since Keaton had literally been ASKING for the beach each morning he woke up for the entire previous week! So, we hung out there for about 3 hours and let the kids run around. The water was a bit too cold to actually let them get in this time, but Keat had fun digging TUNNELS with daddy, while mom and Lilee snuggled on the blanket!

The next morning, we all woke up and headed to Sea World. THANK YOU THANK YOU to Seth's friend from work who gave us two free tickets to the park! It was awesome!! not to mention it saved us about $100. Having that many people together got a little krazy, but we had a great time! We ended the day with Chuck-E-Cheese and crashed at the hotel!

Tuesday we headed home, but not before stopping at Old Town San Diego first! Seth and I love this part of town and it was fun to let the boys run in and out of all the old houses! We got some yummy candy, ate some yummy Mexican food, and settled in for a long car ride home! It was a great weekend and though we were REALLY tired, it was worth it!! Again, we didn't get a LOT of pictures at Sea world, so just imagine two ADORABLE kids and lots of sea life...it was fun!!

Here are some pictures we DID manage to take!

Waiting in line at Sea World
The boys were being serenaded and thought it was HILARIOUS!

Look at that belly!! It's almost as big as the pumpkins!

My little Twinkies...oh how I love them!
