Our summer! First stop, San Fransisco!

Gosh we had an amazing summer! 
2 straight months of traveling, seeing friends and family and soaking up the good old United States!
We flew out 1 week after school got out. Jakarta to Tokyo, then Tokyo to San Fransisco. We stopped for 4 days to sight see and enjoy California. Although we FROZE the whole time we were there. We are used to the tropics and our bodies were thrown for a loop!
It was nice to eat some good food (In n Out burger, Cheesecake factory, etc.) and play at the beach. 
We even got to meet up with cousins that we hardly get to see! But all of the kids became fast friends!

Our next stop was Utah where we basically moved in to my grandparents house (THANK YOU GRANDMA AND GRANDPA PICKLE!!)

2016 Basketball Awards (OKC)

Sadly, all of the sports are coming to a close for this season. 
On Saturday the boys were awarded medals for their basketball efforts. 
Both Ashton and Weston had an awesome time playing basketball and learning and improving on all of the fundamentals. 
I of course love that they play basketball-it was my sport of choice growing up and I enjoyed playing all throughout my school years. 
Ashton (played on the 3rd/4th grade team) many times went from soccer field straight to the court to play his basketball games. 
He was a great player and always had a smile on his face.
Weston (played on the 1st/2nd grade team) really helped to lead his team. He was the self proclaimed point guard (warms my heart!)
and loved to help everyone go to the right positions.
It was a great season and we look forward to next year!

Sentosa Island

Our favorite day in Singapore was visiting Sentosa Island.
We rode on the luge and raced down a track. The twins rode with Tommy and I, and Ashton and Weston rode alone. 
We visited a huge candy store and a huge Hershey Chocolate store (1 bag of reeses cups was $36). 
We had fun walking around, enjoying the views and letting the boys run.

Asia's largest ferris wheel-The Singapore Flyer

We rode on Asia's largest ferris wheel (7th biggest in the world) The Singapore Flyer.
It was a great view and we had the capsule all to ourselves. 
We enjoyed looking out all over Singapore and the water. 
We all took turns taking pictures (Ashton and Weston are becoming quite the photographers!) and got some great shots!

Singapore science centre

The kids all got a kick out of the double decker bus's!

Nixon trying to figure out where my body went!

Waiting to see the movie about the sun a moon

Tommy got some street food and the boys all had some!

Ashton out cold on the train. His head was hurting pretty bad

Taking the train! Reminded us of Tokyo so much!

We had a blast at the Science center. It was huge and we did a lot of walking. 
We decided to take the train but the boys also loved riding the double decker bus's (see top picture)!

The kids loved exploring all of the interactive exhibits at the museum and we took advantage of letting them run free!
Unfortunately Ashton got what seemed to be a migraine about halfway through (his first one ever and I'm sure not his last) and even though we had Tylenol, he wasn't able to kick it. 
He was a good sport and hung in there, but it never completely went away until the next morning. 

We left the science center in the late afternoon and headed over to the Singapore Flyer-Asias largest ferris wheel! .......
