Naughty Joey

Joey continues his naughty streak.  Most recently, he swiped a box of straws from the kitchen counter and then had fun playing with them.

This week, he figured out a way to jump onto Annika’s bed but then couldn’t muster up the courage to jump off.  He sat there whining for over half an hour!

Needless to say that all the bedroom doors are now closed.

LA Jets Track Meet

Yesterday, we went up to LA for the LA Jets track meet.

Annika and Nikhil both ran the 1500M and 800M races and both got PR’s in their races.

Here is Nikhil clocking in at 5:13 in his 1500M race – very close to breaking the key 5 minute mark.

Here is Annika en route to her first sub 7 minute mile with a 6:24 in the 1500M race.

She did even better in the 800M with a 3:07 – almost breaking the magical 3 minute barrier.  Next time!

After their race, we went to Polly’s in Long Beach.  This was a recommendation from Urbanspoon – an iPhone application.  What a great meal!  Deserving of the 5 star rating on the iPhone app.
