Worst Fake Smile Ever

On Saturday we did 3 things:

1.  We went to the Chumash Indian Museum.  We picked a good day because they were having a Pow Wow, however, the incense smelled so bad we didn't stick around for the cultural enrichment.  We took a small hike to the Indian Village instead.  They were totally strict with their $10/family (limit 5) rule.  My sister and I brought the 4 oldest and they made me pay an extra $3 for a kid.  I guess the Chumash try to profit off of big families.

2.  We went to Paramount Ranch.  It's an old Wild West movie set used in many old movies and the TV show Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.  The kids loved it.  They played Sheriff and Robbers.

3.  We went to Borchard Park.  They had a brand new Labrynth that we check out.

If you walked the path of the Labrynth, you would walk 1/2 mile.  It was kind of cool.  This was posted on a sign by it:
"The Labrynth is a metaphor for life.  We are all on a path.  We encounter twists and turns, but ultimately arrive at our center. We gain insight and take this back to our world.  When walking the labrynth notice what you learn about your life."
I didn't learn a whole lot about my life.

Oldies But Goodies

Ok, I will blog.  I have finally set a date to return home which means I have two more weeks here in California.  We've been doing some fun stuff.  That some fun stuff includes La Brea Tar Pits, California Science Center, Legoland, and DISNEYLAND!  Disneyland was awesome as expected.  We went on Wednesday, September 1st, so most kids were in school already, and the lines were short.  We pretty much did everything we wanted to do, except I totally did not get a churro, and I was very disappointed with myself for not indulging.  Here are some pics:

We were literally the first car to the lot.  We left at 5:30 AM to avoid traffic which got us there 2 hours befor the park opened.  It was so awesome!  It beat sitting in traffic.

Belle.  I love how Sarah is always snuggled up next to the character.
