This is what a 5th grader looks like -- handsome!!


That's his favorite shirt because he thinks it looks so casual and comfortable. 

And his class.


11th Birthday Party!

Quinn had his birthday party on Friday night at The Stadium.  It's lazertag and lots of games.  There were about 15 kids, with 3 girls from his Odyssey team.   They started with a couple of rounds of lazertag.  


And then pizza!





And cake! 




I ordered an undecorated cake from Costco and had this cake topper printed from Etsy.  FYI, the cake topper didn't look great and tasted horrible.   But Quinn loved that it was a paradoxical design.  I think you need to know Terraria to understand. 



These two love the weirdness.  


And then it was 45 minutes of games.  The Stadium has fun for everyone!  And Quinn was the only party there so they had free reign over the place. 







The Birthday Boy!!!


Class of 2026 - 5th Grade Version!


His dad taught him this funny trick to make his legs look really short.



Quinn is 11!

Happy 11th Birthday Quinn!

Quinn's birthday celebrations have been spread out over several weeks and he still has his "big" party this Friday.

It started with a trip to the Magic Castle with his buddy Elias.  The guys are looking handsome.  



 He had a Polar Pizza ice cream cake on his birthday and then this weekend we had Quinn's official birthday celebration.  We were going to take him out to dinner Saturday night to a place of his choosing but he opted for a Dodge Ball & Nerf Fight Palooza at his TKD studio.



Sunday Quinn enjoyed hanging out all day in his undies talking to Elias with his new headphone set and using his new gamers mouse.    This is Quinn's gaming office.  


Quinn got a monthly science box for his birthday and the guys had a great time doing all the experiments. 



For his birthday dinner Quinn basically asked for Thanksgiving dinner with lots of gravy!!


And a pumpkin pie for dessert!







Happy Birthday to the best kid ever!!


Weekly Round Up

We continue to love to watch the hummingbirds at the feeders. 



I love spending my birthday by the ocean so on Saturday we had lunch at Malibu Seafood on their patio.  Don snapped this picture with my new phone which was also my birthday present.


A new park opened up very close to us.  It's been in the works for years and the town finally made it happen.  We checked it out over the weekend and it's pretty awesome.  I think the sunset views are going to be amazing.

Don's mission was to map out all the disc golf holes.  It's like golf but with a frisbee.  Don got a disc golf set for his birthday last year in anticipation and now he just needs to make it happen. 


In the lower right you can see the fenced in dirt "Pump Track".  It's a track for dirt bikers to do their thing....whatever their thing is. 



I was hoping to get some sunset pics but it was still too early and we had dinner reservations.  But I have a feeling we will be here quite a bit.
