We had a great time at the fair today. Dan’s parents came with us and we stayed there all afternoon. We visited the petting zoo, the OC Building, the farm, the garden, the photography building, craft building and finished up with a ride. Here’s some of the pictures from our day.
Falyn loved the animals in the petting zoo.
The other kids liked it too, but Riley hated the smell. Note how he is holding his nose in this picure.
Dan showed the boys how to do their name in morris code at the amateur radio booth.
The kids all enjoyed taking pictures at the firefighters, sheriff and CHP booths.

Having fun on the rides.
This evening Riley asked me, “Mommy, why did you tell me there was going to be an earthquake?” I guess he thought I had gotten prior notice that there was going to be an earthquake and was mad I didn’t tell him about it. I explained that I didn’t know there was going to be an earthquake either and that know one knows when earthquakes are going to happen. He didn’t seem too satisfied by my answer and was a bit skeptical that I wasn’t aware there was going to be an earthquake in advance.
We had our annual Tye-Dye Day today. We had been busy tye-dyeing for a while and Falyn was inside having lunch when an earthquake hit! It was a big enough jolt that I ran in the house and grabbed Falyn and ran back out. It was still shaking when I got back outside with her. The kids were all shaken up and I made them all stay outside tilll we were sure it was a pre-shock for an even bigger quake. I had some stuff fall over in the garage, but it doesn’t appear we have any damages. The earthquake was a 5.4 located in Chino Hills.
Other than the earthquake the tye-dye day was a big success! Here’s some of the pictures of the fun.

This week was VBS week. This years theme was “Rainforest Adventure”. They do crafts, sing songs, play games and listen to bible stories. This is the first year that the twins were old enough to attend. They were so excited to be able to go and have had a blast all week! Aidan and Kayli also attended and Talia was a leader. All three of them had a great time this week. That left me home with Falyn all morning each day this week. I had planned to work on potty training her this week, but she ended up getting sick and that plan went out the window.
Here’s some pictures from the closing ceremony:
I took all the kids to see WALLâ€¢E today. This was the first time Falyn has been to see a movie. She did really well. Since it was her nap time, I thought she might fall asleep during the movie, but she didn’t. She started off in Talia’s lap, then moved to mine, then back to Talia, then over to Kayli and ended up sharing a seat with Riley.
We all liked the movie. But the twins said it was a bit scary at parts.
Falyn was coloring in her princess sticker book when she told me, “I’m coloring the k”. She then pointed to the “k” and said, “See, there is a k right there.” I looked and sure enough, there was a “k” in the word “book” that she was coloring. I pointed to the “oo”s and asked her what letter they were and she said, “Those are o’s”. I guess she has been picking up letters from her older siblings.
