Adventures with Flat Stanley

Last Saturday was BUSY! After the Home Depot workshop we did something that was long overdue. We went up into the national park. The reason for visiting Joshua Tree was twofold. First of all, the kids LOVE rock scrambling and we have not been nearly enough during the cooler days of fall and winter. Second of all, we have our visiting Flat Stanley who we wanted to show some of the sites that are unique to our home. The scenery of Joshua Tree National Park is about as unique as you can get.

Jake's day continued to get even busier. After going, going, going all morning and afternoon, he went with his best friend Kyle to go bowling in celebration of his birthday and then spent the night at his house. We had our neighbor Adriana come over and hang out with Jadyn so she wouldn't miss her brother's absence quite so much. We capped off the weekend with a Super Bowl party at Cruz and Tara's. It was a really nice weekend.

One last thing I wanted to show our visiting Flat Stanley before preparing to send her back was the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm, which includes 3,100 windmills that can be viewed along Interstate 10, Highway 62 and parts of the 111 - all routes that our family travels frequently when going to what I fondly refer to as "civilization". I was headed that way Monday after taking the kids to school, so I brought her along for the ride.

I think we showed our visiting Flat Stanley a good time. I know we enjoyed showing her around.
