Wes got a k'nex set for his 13th birthday from Grandma and spent a few hours putting it together. He called us all in for the big unveiling. It's a pretty cool set and the balls go in three different directions. This is life after legos, I guess. He loves this stuff. I can't believe I have an official teen. Pretty soon he'll be on a mission. oh no, my baby!

Maddie seems to be enjoying water polo more than Wesley. He says he thinks he'll just stick to basketball and golf. I guess he enjoys being on land more. We'll see how he feels after Saturday. Playing in an actual game got Maddie pretty excited. We are proud of both of them for their efforts.

One of the highlights of the trip was visiting Uncle Q at the fire station. He is a firefighter with the San Jose fire department and we got an amazing hands-on tour. We rode in the fire engine. I got to sit in the front! The kids tried on all the crazy heavy gear. The complete gear, after jacket, helmet, boots, etc., weighs approx 80 pounds. The kids each got to squirt water and Wes and Zach enjoyed knocking down the plastic patio set. It was Q's idea, honest. Quentin really is amazing with kids and my kids think he is just awesome! He even considers himself a jungle gym. Kids flock to him.
We really enjoyed our visit to Q and Shelly's and baby Boyd's. They are such a cute family.

I also had to put the pics of the kids having fun together. Sometimes I wonder if they even like each other, but then there are moments like this, so happy. I live for those moments.
We had such a fun day! We did tons in one day.
I will post more tomorrow. I gotta get to bed.
