the1stdaughter "Oh, you were planning to go to LA this weekend? Well, San Luis Obispo wanted to give you a taste of traffic just to prep you..." Over an hour to go a total of 8 miles to drop off kids and hubby. #killmenow #trafficbites #reasonstonotliveinLA 4w
  •   gottabesmee I'll take your "8 miles mph" to our "sinkhole wipes out the *new* truck lanes indefinitely" in the Cajon. Yup- Another episode of "The Californians"! 4w

the1stdaughter Favorite moment from today...Littlebug proclaimed she couldn't move from the couch because she had SO MUCH sand on her feet from school. Without prompting or being asked Turkeybird grabbed a washcloth and cleaned his sister's feet. #bestkiddos #kindness #love 4w
  •   russcoxsos I am digging his Mohawk. 4w
  •   the1stdaughter Thanks @russcoxsos! Totally his choice! Littlebug has pink streaks dyed into her hair as well. We figure they can do little wrong when it comes to hairstyles and it gives them some great freedom. 4w
  •   russcoxsos That is awesome. Our kids use to have fun with their hair too. Some folks would be annoyed by it but it allows them to express themselves, plus it is only hair. 4w
  •   artistjerrybennett Holy cow, that is awesome. 4w
  •   melissa_buell So sweet! 4w
  •   ozmabryant I love this! What cool siblings 4d
