Jacob's "Academy" Award

Jacob was honored at an award ceremony at his high school, Academy of the Canyons, last night. He received an award for receiving high scores on his standardized tests, and he will have a special "Gold Seal" on his high school diploma (which he will receive next Friday, June 5). We are very proud of him!

Here are a couple photos along with a scanned copy of his award certificate. His girlfriend, Christina, is standing next to him on the left as she also was honored last night.

Disney's California Adventure

When we went to Disneyland for my birthday last month, we got "2fer" tickets. They are special tickets available to Southern California residents right now allowing you to come back another day and visit the other park at the Disneyland resort. So we used it on our 19th wedding anniversary and visited Disney's California Adventure. We had a great time!

Here we are in the "Hollywood Backlot."

We visited "a bug's land."

We played games on "Paradise Pier."

The boys climbed a rock wall on the "Redwood Creek Challenge Trail."

All while we watched.

They also went on the "rock slide" and enjoyed other parts of the trail.

Finally, the boys weighed themselves in "Tortillas" at the Mission Tortilla Factory Tour.

Proposition 8 has been upheld by the CA Supreme Court!

As I hoped, the California Supreme Court has upheld Proposition 8. This was a hard fight, and I expect it will continue. Word is that this matter will be on the ballot again this November asking the people to overturn Prop 8.

If you'd like to read a bit more about the ruling, here's a link to the CNN story:
