Our Visit to the Ronald Reagan Library

Yesterday, we were able to make the trip to Simi Valley to visit the Ronald Reagan Library. Now, I've been there before, but it was back in High School. Our high school chamber singers sang for some people but we never went inside so it was actually pretty cool to walk through this time. I guess that they had just renovated it and it had re-opened on the 7th so we were lucky to see the new stuff. Logan was actually pretty well behaved. There were quite a few "older" visitors so I was scared that Logan would be making a scene, but he did very well. I think that he just liked to be outside in the AMAZING weather. {Oh, how I miss it there...} I learned a lot about President Reagan. I even liked the {not-so} miniature White House they had on display. Logan wanted to play with it. Being able to walk through Air Force One was also pretty incredible. Next time, I will go with out Logan so that we can actually learn some more and focus on all of the information that this wonderful museum/library has to offer.

Superbowl 2011

Sunday was the Superbowl & it is by far one of my favorite sporting events. Luckily, every year, Don & Carrie throw a great Superbowl party. Our block for church is the 9am {which kills me; I am not a morning person} so this helped us to get things done and attend church. I had to do some homework before we headed to the party. Donald & Logan were ready to leave, so I put the homework on pause and we drove to the party. It is great to have Donald's family so close. His uncle's, aunt's, cousin's, sister's, nieces & nephews, and grandmother were all in attendance. The food was great and it was fun to have everyone around. The kids especially loved playing together. I pretty much did not see Logan all day, except when he wanted to eat or when he came in to refuel with chips and nuts. After everyone left, we stuck around and Donald's aunt, Andy, helped me finish my accounting homework. We finished it so much faster than had I tried to complete it on my own. While I was working on it, Logan fell fast asleep on Donald's lap. He was exhausted! It was a great night and I am so sad that I have to wait close to 9 months for football to return. :(

* A special thanks to Andy {Donald's aunt} for helping me finish my accounting homework. It really saved me some time and headaches. :)
