CSI Graduation

I finally did it.  Graduated from CSI.  Got my Associates in History.  Someday I'll get my Bachelors in Secondary Education and be a kick ass history teacher, but not for awhile.  Until my babies are rasied I'm going to try to be a kick ass mom who has an Associates degree. :) 
 Stewart also graduated this spring, but he got his Bachelors degree in Agricultural and Life Science from Universtiy of Idaho.  It's a good feeling to not be students anymore (although I'm not sure it has fully sunk in yet).  This fall when neither of us are fighting over who gets to use the computer at 11:00 at night perhaps we will know :)
 Of course the ceremony was dreadfully boring, and I was in the back of the auditorium (literally almost the last one to get my diploma), but thankfully I sat next to a hilarious Asian kid that cracked jokes the entire time... so I guess I was a bit entertained.
Also- a huge thanks to Nancy, Wally and Lindy for going.  It was so hot and boring, I felt bad they had to sit through it, but I'm so lucky to have great family support (and dinner at Sizlers was the perfect graduation night gift!) ;)

Disney Day Three!

Our final day spent at Disneyland/California Adventure was pretty chill.  We decided to split the park and go on our favorites again.  We also decided that we should snap some pictures of characters to give the kids something to look forward to.

 Day 3-Tired, but still loving it!
 We ate at Flo's Cafe in California Adventure.  I wasn't too impressed with the food (not my favorite style of homecooked food) but it filled us up!
 We did all the smaller rides that we missed on the first two days... like Luigi's Flying tires in Cars land.  These bumper cars inflated with air and all the holes in the ground released air. To move you had to lean just right.
After our day at Disney (we left around 4) we headed to our next destination: our hotel at Huntington Beach.  We picked up a pack of fresh berries from a street stand, stocked up on treats and microwavable food at Walmart, and dashed our plans of spending the evening on the beach.  Instead we holed up in our hotel room and fell in love with Duck Dynasty while eating clam chowder, chips, cookies and other great junk food. It was a super relaxing (and even fun) evening!
