Elena and Jubal

 Hee. Hee.
 This is Sebastian's Dragon Trainer picture.  Toothless is blowing fire. Hiccup is gliding in his suit from the second movie.  The town's below them with the fire torch things burning, and Astrid is on the left of them.  He actually paused the movie himself so he could copy the writing style onto the top of the page.  He spent all yesterday afternoon on it.
 We celebrated Elena's birthday last night.  She was overjoyed with everything!  I love birthdays like that.  I made the scripture case for her.
 Could you guess from the presents that it's her 8th birthday?
 Watch and My Little Ponies from her abuelitos.

 A new little horse from us.
 I love her face in these photos.  And just FYI, she chose steak, corn on the cob, spaghetti squash and rice for her birthday dinner.
 Seriously love it!
 Pumpkin cake as requested.
 Okay, and now a whole bunch of pictures of Jubal. Because he's adorable.
 Look, he's practically the size of a toddler.  Both Leo and I have been complaining bitterly because it feels like we haven't even had a baby this time, he's so huge.
 Ha. Ha. And he's confused by his shirt.  Oliver would have been a good name too, just not as cool as Jubal.

More of Surfside (Ana's pictures)

 1. Ana spent part of the evening playing with the camera.

 2. I have a ton of Ana selfies.  A TON.

 3. I love my new skillet and our camp grill set up we got for Christmas!  Love it!
 4. Yes, I am sewing Halloween costumes.  I did swim too.
 5. I decided to ignore all the few little annoyances that happened and had a great time, although I ended up spending two hours of the afternoon driving to a Walmart for things we ended up not needing.  Sigh.

 6.  However, I was really rather upset when we pulled up our super nice stakes from REI and they were orange with rust from the point they hit the ground. (Yes, I do care about our stakes, I hoped never to buy new ones, even when we get new tents).  So sad.  And our new grill, well I spent almost an hour and a half at home scrubbing it to hopefully stop the rust from spreading that covered it after one day beside the ocean.  Salt is awful.

 7. Oh well, it was still a wonderful time.  We loved every minute beside the ocean!

8.  Ana got some good shots, eh?
