Kids at La Salette Shrine – Christmas 2017

Kids at La Salette

We made a last minute decision to head over to LaSalette Shrine to see the lights tonight. When Allison and the kids came home from school we weren’t in the mood to make anything for dinner so we decided that we’d do our annual La Salette trip. We got there right before the lights went on. We left in such a hurry, however that both Allison and I left our wallets at home. That was unfortunate because we were going to go to Bliss for dinner. So, while Allison and the kids walked through the Nativity sets I ran home for the wallet. Luckily for us we live right around the corner from La Salette.

We enjoyed the lights very much. As we walked around the pond Eva and Allison took turns reading the Christmas Alphabet signs. Eva did a really good job considering that they were all in a cursive script. Andrew even helped out a little. It wasn’t too cold, but it had snowed the day before and so a few places were closed. Mostly spots with steps.

After our trek around the shrine we went to Bliss for dinner. Out annual post La Salette meal was a good one. Although my order came out first messed up but went back and was fixed. I do love their burgers. I had been getting the Bliss Specials for years but now they have a Blue Cheese burger and I like that even more. And, of course, this is the one day during the Winter that we have ice cream.

Field Trip – Bliss for Dinner – Wiggly Tooth

Looking too old

I flew in from California this morning in time to get to my parents’ house to pick up Andrew. Today was Andrew’s field trip to the Capron Park Zoo. We went home and then walked over to the Zoo. We were there early and so Andrew got to run around and play on the playground before going into the zoo. It was really hot today. I had just left nice weather in San Diego (The locals would say it was too cold but I liked it. It was 93 upon returning home.

The zoo was a nice field trip. I missed it last year, I think because I was at the PBS Annual Meeting. Each of the kids received papers with all the letters of the alphabet and a clipboard. They had the task of finding something for every letter of the alphabet. It was a nice activity that made the trip to the zoo more than just looking at the animals. We ended up being there a day early for the new Red Panda. We’ll have to go back soon.

Tonight we went over to Bliss for dinner. They changed up the menu and I tried something a bit different. I ordered the breakfast burger. This was a burger on french toast with an egg and bacon. It was different but tasted great.

Before bed Andrew came in and he was so excited because he has his first wiggly tooth. I’m excited, too because Eva’s been losing teeth like crazy ever since she was 4 years old or so. This is Andrew’s first and he’s all happy, some of his classmates have already lost teeth and I know he wants to lose some too.
