Dad's Retirement

Last week, we went out to Connecticut to celebrate Dad's retirement (March 29).

We arrived the night before in secret and spent the next day decorating. All the kids (and many of the grand kids) surprised Dad at his office in the afternoon. Erin, Mollie, and Megan sang a modified version of "For the Longest Time."

We spent the evening at the church building for a party. There was food and cake, the kids ran around like loons, and we played "Jobs Dad has had" Wheel of Fortune (minus the wheel).

Corinne's Birthday 2019!

Corinne's birthday fell on a Sunday this year, so we got to pack in a full day of celebrations. We started by opening presents.

Then we drove up to Walnut Creek for birthday lunch and ice-cream at the San Francisco Creamery (clearly not located in San Francisco). Then it was off to Tilden Regional Park to ride the steam trains and the carousel. Corinne wanted me to ride in the spinny seat with her the first ride so I needed an inner-ear break for the second ride.

After the park it was time to get the exhausted kids back home for cake and bed.

She's a happy little girl. She's been in preschool this year, 2 days a week for a couple hours each day. She has swim class on Mondays. And gymnastics on Wednesdays.
