Today we all slept in... no one was up before 07:00. I know, to some that isn't much sleeping in, but for me it is at least an extra hour, and I appreciated it. First thing was that I made some oatmeal with raisins, as that is one of the favorites of the girls. Actually Jackie likes the raisins, as does Jason and I, and Stacy prefers to have her's without.

Shortly after that we all got ready and headed over to Anthony Netto's place, over in Pacific Beach. Funny thing that I just rode my bike over to his place a few days ago, on one of my longer rides, of about 15 miles, round trip. Anthony invited us over to have a nice "picnic lunch" and to let the girls enjoy the park that is in the area where he is living. Stacy, of course, was first to get over to the climbing structure and Jackie was a bit slower. Jackie just doesn't have the same coordination development that Stacy has and therefore isn't able to just jump right into climbing everything. Having said that, she sure wasn't intimidated by any of the climbing areas, and went right up the ladders and down the slides. Then Stacy discovered this one area that is meant for a little older child and asked me to pick her up so she could use the overhead bars. I told her I didn't think that was such a good idea because it was kind of high and I had to still watch Jackie. I wouldn't be able to come help her if she needed it. She accepted that and went on to the swings.

We finally sat down and had our picnic lunch and then headed over to the ice cream parlor, where Jackie really got into her chocolate ice cream. Both Anthony and Jason got a couple of pictures of her, in all her messy glory. Stacy wasn't quite as bad, but then Jason managed to get chocolate on himself as well, as he devoured his rocky road ice cream. I had a double scoop of vanilla on a waffle cone.

We headed back to the house a little after noon, and before we got back home both of the girls were out. I guess they burned off a bunch of energy running around the park. They slept for a few hours and during that time Gary K. came over for a short visit. He has been good with keeping in touch with Jason, and I think Jason appreciates it. The girls slept until late afternoon and then they got up. We did some playing around the house and then I made dinner. It was chicken, rice and mixed vegetables, and the girls both ate all their vegetables without much coaxing from me or Jason. I have been pleasantly surprised at how well they eat balanced meals. Stacy told me the doctor told her that eating the vegetables was good for her. In Jackie's case I think she just likes to eat things that taste good... ;-)

Tomorrow is another day back to the appointment schedule, where we will be taking the girls to day care at about 07:30,  and then we won't have them with us for another set of days. A regular schedule is being worked out, and it will be good when it finally is in place. Thank you, all for all your continued prayers and support, and take care and stay positive.

    Always here praying!
    Hebrews 13:20-21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
