PVIC Patio for lunch

Today, after our morning tennis, we ate at the PVIC beach patio for lunch. The patio lunch service just re-opened for the season this weekend and we've been looking forwards to eating there again. The kids love the chicken tacos on the kids' menu, and Andrea and I split the California Club. The staff remembered that I liked a lot of sweet tea, and they were happy to see us. They had a new ice cream cookie that Andrea tried (still not as good as the chocolate chip and ice cream cookie that they got rid of last year). Paige tried their new unicorn cookie, which is covered in icing and sprinkles. She liked it pretty well and Andrea tasted it and also thought it was pretty tasty.

It was fun to eat at the beach again and we're happy to spend some time at our beach club again. We were there quite a bit over the weekend, playing at the playground and walking on the beach.

St. Patrick's Day PJ party at PVIC

Connor and Paige went to the PVIC PJ Party on St. Patrick's Day on Saturday night. Paige wore her St. Patrick's Day swag as well as her Unicorn Onesie. Connor brought, and wore, his onesie as well, however he didn't have it on when we arrived so I didn't get a pic of him in it.

Field day - Paige's 2nd grade class

On Thursday, March 15 2018, Paige and her class had Field Day and Mommy went to watch and take some pics. The weather was a little cool, which was perfect since they were going to be so active. The kids did tug of war, jump the river, a relay race, ball toss at bowling pins, and a flag pulling game. Paige wasn't super pumped for field day, but she had a lot of fun, participated and had a great attitude, and was happy that Mommy came to watch.

Birthday NBA jersey

Amanda and Abby got Connor a new NBA jersey for his birthday and it arrived in the mail this past week. We took a pic of him so he could send a pic to everyone to say thank you.

Wolfie's paintball birthday party

On Sunday, Connor joined Wolfie, Namath, and Harrison for a birthday party to celebrate Wolfie's 11th birthday. Connor hadn't done paintball before, and we had a talk about being safe and responsible with the gear. It was funny to see in some of the pics when the kids were holding their paintball guns, Connor opted to keep his mask on and had good trigger discipline.

The boys played a few different games, 2v2 and eventually played with another group of boys that showed up. They got messy and worn out, and after paintball they swam at Wolfie's for a little while.

School Carnival

This Saturday, in the afternoon, we went to the school carnival. The kids have been looking forwards to it for a while, and Paige has been rehearsing some songs to sing with her classmates. When we arrived, we looked around for a little while and then went to the middle area so Paige could sing with everyone. There were some soloists during a few of the songs, but Paige didn't wan to try out for that. She did enjoy singing with everyone, and it was cute to hear all the kids out there.

Connor ran around with his buddies for most of the day. He did some obstacles with his buddies and we also bought them all a few turns on the ball toss and thankfully Connor's buddy hit the target and dunked that turtle.

Paige ran around with a few of her friends, but spent most of her time with Caitlyn. They got stickers on their faces, did the cake walk to win some cupcakes, and enjoyed some shaved ice.

Both kids enjoyed their time at the carnival, and it was all for a good cause to improve the security at the school. We could already see some new security doors and some new fencing going up.

Cooper's 12th birthday party - Top Golf

On Saturday morning, Connor went to Top Golf for Cooper's birthday party celebration. Connor hadn't ever hit a golf ball for real, only mini-golf. He took some pointers from Cooper's dad Steve, and then the boys played some games, hitting the balls at the big targets. Connor placed 7th of 8 in the first game and 5th in the second game. It was also kind of a neat opportunity for Connor to meet some of Cooper's friends from Ocean Palms. Other than Cooper, all of the boys at the party will be going to the same middle school next year.

We're glad Connor had fun and got to celebrate with his buddy Cooper.
