Casa Bonita


For the second year in a row a friend and old colleague of mine somehow talked Casa Bonita into letting him cliff dive for an evening as a fundraiser for his kid's school.  So, of course, we were there to cheer him on. The big boys and I (Kari and Blane opted out) had a lovely night of bad food, watching cliff diving, and playing on poorly maintained skee-ball machines.

The Inventing Room



I put one of the above photos on Facebook and wrote, "Right near some dispensaries but that's not what we're doing here. That's liquid nitrogen popcorn."

We took Adler (Blane too and LT was at a friend's house) to this place called The Inventing Room where they make desserts with fun stuff like blow torches and liquid nitrogen.

card games


We like to play games as a family and Blane likes to sit with us and 'play' too by throwing cards and putting them in his mouth. I found some cards just for him that he can use (and destroy) and not interfere with the actual game.

Tuesday nights

 Brian takes each Tuesday night to do something for himself.  The boys and I (usually) have lots of fun.  Last night they took the lenses out of some old glasses and were trying to make Harry Potter glasses (very new obsession).
 A sure entertainment hit is the hot glue gun.  They built these snowmobiles last night while Blane and I cooked dinner.
And just to make things interesting, this week is earth week at school.  Yesterday one of the challenges was to eat by candlelight to save energy, which we did.  Immediately afterwards, all lights were switched on again (and forgotten to be turned off by the kids).   But, we did the challenge.
