Went to the Franklin Institute with Kristin & her kids, Traci & her boys and Mark. The kids had a ball. In Isaac's Loft there were 3 challenges. They are impossible to do.

We are dog sitting an 11 year old white husky with beautiful crystal blue eyes. His name is Haunchy and he is very well behaved. Saki is driving him crazy.

We were invited to our neighbor's house for their block party.  Had a great time with friends, then went to the bowling alley to bowl for Autism.  We went back to the party and drank the night away.  What a great time!

Today was a day of presents. I got my new keyboard cover and laptop case in the mail (purple of course) and my 2g flashdrive bracelet. I know it's green, but it's for work. It will help me to encourage my students to go green.

The only things I wanted to see at the San Diego Zoo were the Koalas and Pandas.  I was so happy to see them.  The Philadelphia Zoo doesn't have them.  It was good to be home to see my kids and husband, but I miss the California weather!

Dennis was nice enough to let us store our baggage in his hotel room then drive us to the zoo.  We weren't sure how to get there so we navigated the old fashioned way, by map.  Linda, David, Mark and I had a great time.

We stayed the week at the University of San Diego.  What a beautiful campus!  I roomed with Liz, Traci and Jan (same as last year).  We were the party room again!  The entire group was split into teams.  Our team captain was Princess Porter.  We had to come up with a team name and then decorate our surf board.  The picture is our team jumping off the wall.

We did the trolley tour today where we could hop on and off at different places.  We visited Coronado Island where we saw the beautiful Coronado Hotel which is made all of wood.  It even has an old fashioned bird cage elevator, still in use, with a person running it.  We also visited Old City and Horton Plaza.

Arrived in San Diego for the Discovery Educator Network Summer Institute.  The weather was beautiful.  Tony picked us up from the airport and brought us back to the hotel.  He then played tour guide around the city.  We went to Mission beach and then La Jolla beach.  We were able to see the sea lions at La Jolla beach.  At Mission beach we all got matching henna tattoos.

The horses were moved to a new stable called Victoria Stables.  It is about 300 acres and the horses don't stay in the barn.  They are out on a huge field.  Very happy horses here!

Went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. The ladies room had an interesting stall. I guess this is the stall you go into when the food doesn't agree with you.

Went to see the fireworks in Ambler tonight.  I took some video of the fireworks.  Brianna and Jon rode the Salt and Pepper Shakers and Rachel is sporting her two dogs. One of them she won and the other is just her pet.  LOL!  As we were driving home, Brianna told us how the twins were sleeping in the car.  I had to snap the picture.  This is the only time that they can touch and not fight.  We had a great time.

June 30th

After finally sleeping in today, I went through all the bags of stuff I brought home.  This is taking up 3/4 of my queen sized bed!  My husband should be happy.  I brought him home a new wardrobe of t-shirts and got my kids the flash drives they need for next year.
