Culinary Creations by Cameron

Cameron was one of 3 winners of a recipe contest at her school (with over 1,000 students).  She created a healthy breakfast recipe that was a wrap, filled with Nutella, yogurt, granola, and fruit.  She got to make her recipe at the District contest.

 The Ahwatukee newspaper ran her photo during the contest.  SODEXO did a great job of making it a special occasion for the chefs!  She didn't win, but had a great experience.

Taking Aim...

We went to a shooting range, to try out some guns.  Found out that Ryan is a pretty good shot, and so is Mike, but Trish might be better.  (Trish is the one writing this!)  Check out the hole in the head.  I shot 3 times... it's my claim that all 3 bullets went through the same hole.  Earlier, I was responsible for the hole in the X marking the center of the target!   We will definitely go shooting again.

Spring Break the Disney Way!

We went to Disneyland and California Adventure for Spring Break this year.  The first day was Disneyland.  It was a little bit overcast, and we got sprinkled on just a little bit, but mostly it kept the crowds small, and the lines short, and we had a GREAT time enjoying the park.
  The second day it was raining.  We went to Disneyland for a couple of hours before California Adventure opened, and it was raining quite steadily.  But by the time we were riding the high speed "California Screaming" roller coaster, the driving rain was coming in sideways.  Combined with our high rate of speed, the rain felt like needles stabbing our faces, eyes and hands.  It hurt so much, but it was quite a ride!  We were soaked and freezing most of the day, but still had a great time.  As Mike tells the kids "it's always an adventure!"
