My genealogy days - 28 and 29 June 2012

Grandma and Grandpa Camp for the grandgirls is over...whew!  Now I go visit the grandboys on Saturday! I'll be one pooped grandpop when I get home on the 4th.

1)  Thursday, 28 June:

*  Got the girls fed and dressed, read emails and blogs, and noted that Treasure Chest Thursday - 1930 U.S. Census Record for Frederick W. Seaver family posted.

*  We left at 9:30 a.m. for the San Diego Zoo.  did the flamingos, children's zoo, snake house and hummingbirds this time, then had lunch and were home by 1 p.m.

*  Everyone got a nap, but I was able to read and noted that 1940 U.S. Census Update: 29 States Searchable on FamilySearch posted.

*  We left at 3 p.m. for Barbara's to swim...had a great time.  The girls are really swimming well.  We came home, then went to El Pollo Loco for dinner, and home by 6:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game.  They won 7-3 with 6 runs in the 9th inning.

*  Girls had trouble going to bed, so that cut into my genealogy time.  Didn't get much done.  Worked a bit in the Cloud presentation.  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and didn't get to bed until 11:30 - and Audrey was still awake.

Genealogy this day was about 3.5 hours.

2)  Friday, 29 June:

*  No sooner started reading email and blogs than girls woke up hungry and cranky.  Got them fed, and they played and watched TV, which gave me the chance to write Follow-Up Friday - Thinking About Good Citations.

*  Played with and hugged with the girls all morning.  We left at 12:30 for Lolita's for lunch and to hand the girls off to Tami and James.  They came back here for naps.

*  While everyone else napped, I got the syllabus for the Cloud presentation done.  Whew.  Still need the Jane's Roots syllabus - on Saturday!  

*  They were up by 3:30, got packed up and left.  Peace and quiet!  Wrote Citing an Unsuccessful Search.

*  Linda and I left at 4:45 p.m. for the bank, the Verizon store to buy her a basic cell phone, then to In 'n Out for dinner.  Home by 6:15 p.m. to watch the Padres lose 10-2 to the Rockies.  Managed to get about 20 names into Linda's phone contact list.  

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, then write two posts for the weekend, add to and edit the Best Of post, check Facebook, and write this post.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours
