Watch Out Scicon - Here Comes Ashlie!!!

February 14, 2012 - Ashlie headed off for Scicon today.  Scicon is a science and conservation camp in Tulare County.  6th graders get to go there for part of their science class and spend 4 days.  When Ashlie first heard about Scicon she thought it stood for Science and Conversation - she thought she was really going to do well with the conversation part! 

This is her and her friend Hannah!

And here they are at the end of the week -
 not quite as fresh smelling (or looking as the beginning of the week)!!!

Tule Fog 2012

Jan 21, 2012 - This was the first 5k I ever did with my sister in 2011 so we decided to make it tradition :)  We had others join us this year and we had a blast.  It sprinkled for just a few minutes on us which was sort of fun!

Chris & Jenny Visit

December 30, 2011 - Just a couple of days after Christmas I had surgery on my elbow and wrist.  I had carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve release done.  Chris & Jenny came to visit and Glenn & Jeri were also here for the winter.  They all came over and attempted to make "Isaacs Hamburger Soup".  The question posed on Facebook was "How many Dixon's does it take to make Isaacs Hamburger Soup?"  Craig's response was, "Only 1 if it's you, Miss!"  :)  After dinner was done and cleaned we pull out Rock Band for a fun time.  Grandpa especially enjoyed it!
