Lunch With Gma & Gpa & Disneyland

Friday was a busy day. First my sister, Mia and I met my grandparents for lunch at Mimi's. My grandparents are 91 and 92 and are just amazing. They still drive all over the place and my grandpa is a total tech wiz!! They live in Claremont in a retirement community-- Claremont Manor. It is a wonderful community of retired people and they live in their own home with their own yard on the premises and they have their meals in the dining room. They are just wonderful people and we are so lucky not only to have them close to us (they live 10 minutes from us-- the city Kevin is an officer in) but also that they are so healthy at their ages. My grandma still walks about 3 miles everyday with their dog Suzi-- AMAZING!!!!

Grandma and Grandpa just love Mia and my grandpa had a blast playing with her:


After school on Friday I picked up Ethan, Owen, Cousins Kaitlyn and Kylie and two of the boys friends Kas and Caron and we took off along with Cassie to Disneyland. It was quite the group but we had a good time-- thank goodness Cassie came- couldn't of done it without her.

Towards the end of the night the boys friends wanted to spend some of their money so we went to the Star Wars store. There is an area on the store where they put your face into Star Wars picture and they were doing it for people for free so the kids decided to get their pictures done. Owen did Darth Mal and Kylie did Padawan. All the kids did a picture together and I actually bought that one (which I forgot to take a pic of but will later) and I also bought the one of Ethan and Carson. They turned out so cute and it was so much fun!!

Today is mothers day and I will post pictures later. Happy mothers day to all of you mothers out there!!! Have an amazing day!!
