Emily Field Trip to Rileys Farm

To study Gold Rush Days, her class went on a field trip to Riley's Farm where they have a 'Gold Rush' area. They can dig and/or mine for gold and trade it in for cash (play money) or they can work to earn money. Gold prices went up and down depending upon the demand. It was really a lot of fun. Here are a few pics.

She decided to earn some money the old fashioned way. She negotiated $20 up front to sweep the floor.

Christmas 2010 Big Bear Trip

I ran across pictures from our trip to Big Bear the day after Christmas.  A friend of mine was gracious to let me and mine stay in her cabin.  We had a great time.  It is always wonderful to spend time with family.

Packing for 2 babies for a one night stay - priceless!
