We went to Disney's California Adventure last Saturday. We had a fun time together as a family. There are two pictures in this post with more to come.

David as Spiderman

David and the young men from church went down to Santa Monica and had a fun activity on/near the beach. One of the highlights was the rings. (See last picture at the bottom.) The boys were asked to travel by hand on these rings, swinging across to the other end. It was a lot harder than it looked, because many of the boys couldn't make it all the way across.

David didn't make it on his first try, but did on his second! Good job, David!







I think this is a picture of one of the rings. They were on long chains and placed several feet apart.

David's AP Test Scores


David took 2 AP classes last school year: Chemistry and Calculus. His scores were in the stack of mail when we returned from vacation. He got a 3 on his Chemistry test and a 5 (out of 5) on his Calculus test! That's like earning an A+ in college Calculus. We are so proud of him!

One of our ward members sent us some pictures of Michael at Scout Camp.

Vacation, Day 6: Belmont Park
We went to a fun little amusement park called Belmont Park on our last full day in San Diego. There were several rides and bumper cars. The kids (and John) had a fun time.

Vacation, Day 6: San Diego, CA Beach

A trip to San Diego wouldn't be complete without a trip to the beach, so we went to the beach adjacent to Belmont Park.

There were several statues and sculptures around the zoo, and I took pictures of a few.
