Prom 2012

Hard to believe my baby boy just went to his Junior Prom! Time is flying by.  He looked so handsome and Sammie his girlfriend looked beautiful.  Stephen had a good time at Homecoming with Kelly.  They had gone as friends, but had a fun group.

So he had a great time at that dance too.  But this was his first big dance to go with someone he liked.  First Stephen went to Sammie's house.

They took a few photos, he gave her the corsage and then they drove to our house.  Here we took more photos!

 Then we all went down to Krista Baldwin's house where the same group that went to Homecoming was meeting.  We took some group shots, and then left when the limo arrived.  They went back to Krista's house after the dance and hung out for awhile.  Stephen took Sammie home and came home full of excitement.  They had a great time!  It was so fun to see all of the water polo and swim boys all dressed in suits and tuxes and those girls...well of course they looked fabulous!  I especially liked the crazy, high shoes they all had on.  I'm so glad he'll have these memories.

Family Crossfit

Yesterday was Uh-mazing!  I'd been trying to get Stephen and Nikki to try out Crossfit.  I knew they'd both love it.  And yesterday it worked out so they could both go.  Nikki went at 3:00 to the high school/college aged class.  She had two of her friends go with her so she didn't have to feel like a newbie.  It was a pretty big class but Andrew was awesome with them.  He was patient and made sure they had the moves down.  (He later said he used to be a high school teacher so his patience made more sense.)  They didn't use much weight, but they all got a great workout in.  Then at 4:00, Stephen and I did the adult class.  Chris, his club water polo coach was there to workout too so that was extra motivation for him.  We got in a great workout and I think Stephen realized how it's individual but still competitive.  We were all exhausted, but we're all ready to go back for more on Friday.  I would love for Bill to be able to go to!  He's worried about signing up and not having the time to go.  But for today, I'll take getting Stephen and Nikki to join me.

What I'm really hoping is that the kids can find something they enjoy to work other muscles than what they use for their sports.  Also with Stephen getting ready for college, it'd be great if he liked this and could continue throughout college.  At this point, it's fun for us to go and cheer each other on.

A day at the beach

Yesterday we were in Newport for water polo games. We'd planned to spend today relaxing at the beach. But the morning was freezing yesterday so we altered our plans a bit. I got up and went to the 8:00 crossfit class. Then came home & took Ali for a quick walk, showered, made lunches & took our time getting ready. About 11:30 we headed down to Bolsa Chica. It's really windy,but beautiful. Stephen had decided he'd rather take the day off and play video games after polo this morning. So it's just the girls and I but we're having a nice day. For some odd reason theres nothing better than sitting on the beach eating your lunch. Then we'll head home & watch the Kings game with the boys. I love summer!
