February 1, 2013 - Who dat?
Jim and Linda of course. They made the long half mile walk
over the park and we all did a picnic together. Hey dude
those carrots were really spicy.
February 2, 2013 - This time
we made a picnic in the grassy area a little away from the

February 13, 2013 - This eight
year old at the park really took a liking to Shai. He was
shy at first but eventually began playing with her. They
played soccer, football, frisbee, and even flew paper
airplanes as shown in the picture.
February 15, 2013 - Really
happy my wife, son, and daughter all got to see each other a

You Say Global Warming?
February 16, 2013 - Today it
went up to something like 80 degrees. We went to the
playground and it was actually a bit too warm for Shai to
play. We decided to head back home and go swimming in the
heated pool. Then we went in the jacuzzi which was a lot

laid out in the sun and went back in the house around 3:00
pm as it began to get a bit cooler.
February 16, 2013 - This
definitely turned out to be the favorite place for Shai this
vacation back home. Cannot even count the number of times we
went to this park in three months. With a new playground,
plenty of open grass area, and a lot of animals and birds,
this is the perfect place for a 3-year-old.
February 17, 2013 - We took
some old challah of all things to the park today and fed the
birds. Shai really likes doing this. He got to see mallard
ducks, coots, and seagulls.
Mission Trails Regional Park is a wonderful place to take
