Ellie LOVED it. She was in the water the entire time - the only time I got her out was to feed her a sandwich when she was shivering with blue lips. And Jamie was so great about coaching the kids. She had a couple of surfboards and would plop two kids on it, take them out and give them a shove into a wave, and they could ride all the way to the shore. The girls were even trying to stand up and hang ten. It was awesome. Ellie also got pretty good at boogie boarding.
Adam was hit or miss - he had a huge fit at Gigi and it took me awhile to get him to calm down (needed snacks) and he wasn't into being out in the water, but thankfully Judd showed up just after I'd made him eat a sandwich, so he was able to hold it together and let us stay a little longer.
On Saturday, the kids had a great soccer game. When Adam runs onto the field, he likes to tell us he's being determined, then he freezes for a minute, revs up, and races out onto the pitch with a huge yell. It's hilarious watching him get after it. They've both improved quite a bit, and definitely are doing less crying about it all. After nap time, they went over to Gigi and Grizz's for some swimming and dinner, and mom put them to bed for us so Tim and I could go and see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Ahmanson (verdict, I liked the production, the acting and staging was great, but I didn't care for the book back in the day, so I didn't care for the play overall.)
Then yesterday we had ladies day out at Angels stadium! Tim and I won four tickets to two games at a charity auction earlier this year, and since we couldn't get Twins tickets, decided to take Gigi and Sara with Ellie and I to watch the Angels versus the A's. Ellie's been to games before, but her last one she was under two - I think I was freshly pregnant with Adam. So this was a much different experience.
