Fun Fest Champions

The first weekend in December Sam's team 'The Rapids' played in local soccer tournament called 'Fun Fest'.

(bundled up to play goalie - the coldest job since there wasn't a lot of moving around)

It was FREEZING cold (for us that is 30 degrees) 
- so the kids were bundled in layers and layers, but they played on!  

In between the games I let the boys pile in my van to watch Christmas videos and warm up.

I asked Sam what the scores of the 4 games were and he said:


A shut out! and GOLD medals for everyone!

GO RAPIDS!  Awesome season!

Taking Sam to Legoland has been on my list for a while ... so when we found out that Ben's soccer tournament was in San Diego I decided that was our opportunity!

Sam started planning for it right away ...
 saving all of his money ... counting it over and over ... and anticipating lots of FuN!

The night before he made sure his little iPod was charged so he could get lots of pictures ...

so fun watching him snap away all day ... (I see a mini album in the future!)

Here is a little of what we did ...

 toured Lego Miniland - always so fun to see all the lego replicas of cities across the USA!

went on a few rides,

 saw how legos are made,

and of course ... did some shopping!

and visited with Lego Santa.

As you will see this new area was definitly the kids favorite!

 The biggest lego model ever - a star wars x-wing!

This past weekend we drove to San Diego for the Nomads Tournament - it was fun to see Ben in action ...doing what he loves (and he couldn't hide from my camera - hehehe)!

 During half-time the team makes a game plan ...
 and Sam shoots goals!

Won 2 - Lost 1

3 games and done - didn't advance due to goal differential.
