15 minutes after the quake Brixie Lee went down for a 2-1/2 hour nap and didn't have a care in the world. I watched the news and found out that the shaking in the hills (Chino Hills) was less violent than for those in the flat lands around us (Chino, Pomona, etc.) Some of my friends in Chino said that bookshelves and lamps toppled over. My friends at Cal Poly said it was a very hard ride. Diane Carter was actually trapped in her office with stuff falling off the bookshelf. Apparently they closed the CLA tower, but the rest of campus was open for business. I did hear on the news that Mt. Sac (just over the hill from Cal Poly) was evacuated and closed for the rest of the day. Lots of action outside of Chino Hills!
I would like to thank all my family and friends that called to check on me. I'm sorry I couldn't answer all your calls but my cell phone kept sending my calls to my voice mail. Then I wasn't able to return a lot of calls because the lines were so busy. Again, thank you all so very much for checking on us. Take care and be safe!

You wouldn't know it from this awesome picture that Grandma took, but I had to stop a couple of times to prevent an anxiety attack. Large groups of people are not my idea of a good time. Oh well... this is life, welcome to it! Can you believe what a great looking family I have????
Brixie Lee's favorite part was the touch pools. Surprise, surprise, surprise... this little girl likes to touch everything and it's almost a guarantee that if she touches it she'll try to put it in her mouth! I caught her licking up the water in the touch pools when Daddy was in charge. DADDY!!!
They also had these cute little birds that you could feed. Everyone was shocked that Brixie Lee wanted to touch it. I think she wanted to taste it! The best about visiting the birds was that Daddy got pooped on. He, he, he, he, he!!!! I'm still laughing about that!
Here's the link to Daddy's gallery if you would like to check out all the pictures from our awesome day! Thanks Auntie Cindy and Grandma! We had a blast!

Today marks the first day of my 2nd trimester and we are going to celebrate with 2 skinny cows each tonight! I know, it's kinda crazy, but hey... we deserve it. This pregnancy has been much harder than Brixie Lee. The nausea started right at 6 weeks and started to let up at 11 weeks (a week ago). I went from my extremely active lifestyle of Stroller Strides 4-5 days a week to laying around with my eyes crossed. I was ready to resume my classes this week but we had doctors appointments that conflicted everyday! It's a good thing I didn't toss all my prego clothes because I'm already wearing them.
Below is one of our ultrasound pictures from Tuesday July 22. The technician couldn't tell us anything but she did say that "it" was extremely active and must have liked breakfast. I didn't tell her about the hamburger that I also had right before our 9:15am appt. You are what you eat and I'm a COW!!!!

I finally gave up on the Blogger video upload and opened a YouTube account. Not a single problem uploading to YouTube!!! YEAH!!!!
Above is the video of Brixie Lee at her 2nd Kindermusik class with Ms. Annette. I can't even begin to explain how much fun she has in these classes. She completely loves Ms. Annette and wants to be next to her all the time.
Don and I are also excited because he's finally going to be able to do some of these activities with Brixie Lee. Up until now I've hogged all the fun! In the fall Don will be taking her to Kindermusik on Monday nights and Little Gym on Saturdays. I can't wait for them to do these activities together. We both felt like he was missing out and now he's going to be able to join in all the fun. YAY Daddy!!!!

Now this video needs some explaining... when you give a video camera to a photographer, you're going to need to adjust your head or your computer screen on occasion. You see... Daddy forgets (often) that you can't turn the video camera and record in portrait view. I hope you enjoy the video and that you don't hurt your neck trying to view it.
Our drink of choice was a Starbucks Iced Decaf Sugar Free Soy Vanilla Latte! Did you really think I would give my crazy child caffeine??? That's for Grandmas to do!
