I was invited by my dear sister-in-law, a 5th grade teacher, to join her class on field trip to the Reagan Library. The focus for today was to participate in the Colonial festivities. The kids from my sister's-in-law school were all dressed up in period clothing so they really fit in to the wheel spinning, bread kneading, tin hammering, and all the activities based from the colonial time period. There were volunteers teaching talking about surgery, crafts, smith-work, herbs, cooking, fabric making, and guns even went off periodically. The Library hold this event once a year so it was a treat to get to go!
Besides all that The Reagan Library is quite amazing. I got to see the Magna Carta, which is on loan from the Lincoln Cathedral in London. It will be on display until June 20th There was a replica of Airforce Once, the oval office, and a history of Ronal Reagan's life.
Here's what the kids looked like!

I think we have. I come around here occasionally when my children aren't awake, or throwing up, pooping their pants/bed/floor/pull-up, trying to survive a nasty chest then head cold. Needless to say we've been occupied. And I would rather stay in bed and stare at the TV then do anything else. Well, luckily this week is over, and the sickness is subsiding. Except for my cold, blah!
In other news...my sister and her boyfriend got a puppy. Oh he's a cute little guy! An English Bulldog named T-Bone Steak, TBone for short! My girls have been loving playing with him. He is a cute little fella, but always wants to bite and chew...on my toes!!!!
Here's the girls having fun with the pup!
