Gettin' the Boot!

Last night I went to dinner with a few friends (for my birthday). As we talked we discovered that most of us our bloggers (do you have to be good at it to be considered a blogger, right? cause I'm obviously not). Anyway, a few of my friends told me that if I didn't update SOON that I would be removed from their precious sidebar space because I NEVER update my blog. SORRY! I didn't know anyone even read my blog, much less that I had landed a spot on the sidebar! ya go girls!

Where should I begin? Let me check to see what I last posted about....HOLY CRAP! It has been a long time... at least since I "really" posted.

November 30th I loaded all of the kids into the Odessey and hit the road. I had been wanting to go to California to see one of my dearest friends & her family for YEARS! We had been talking on the phone alot and she was aware of my business so she called and asked me if I wanted to come out and do a show at THE CLUB we worked at together when I lived out there. She also said she would have an open house at her home.

It took us 11 hrs. to get there. The kids were exhausted and shy. It only took 5 minutes for them to warm up to their new California friends...They spent the next 2 days hanging out with their long lost cousins, Nitz, Nitz and NiNi Holladay! They loved every minute of it. Then, I took them to the Golden Gate Bridge...

IT WAS FABULOUS!!!! As you can see the kids were super excited to be there. Ladd was very brave and Nora was an absolute dream...Sophie on the other hand, was a little protective & bossy! lol! HOLY CRAP! am I the biggest idiot inthe whole world or what? I don't think we even made it past the waters' edge. Mybe next time. Here are a few more pics form my iphone.

The sun was fading fast and we had not yet been to the BEACH!! We ran back to the car but, not without ANOTHER potty break and headed for the nearest "beach". With the help of the Garmin we made it to China Beach with just moments of sunlight left.

The Following pictures are of our experience...the photo above is by Ingrid Talar. I hope you don't mind that I stole if off the interenet...

Once again! It was Fabulous...The lkids wouldn't even step foot onto the sand. The waves were crashing, dark was upon us and "those big Rocks were Freaking us out.."

The kids loved the Palm Trees..Ladd kept saying "I can't believe California has Hawaii Trees!"

I tried to explain to them that the Bridge was the one that we had just come from...They didn't care. They just wanted to leave. There were no crabs or sharks to be seen so what was the point of us being at a scarey beach.

The Pacific Ocean!
Next time we go to the beach, there will have to be LOTS of sunlight! The way we all prefer it!

So, Ladies...that is all I have time for at the moment...Stay tuned, More Blogging to come!!! Am I still gettin' the Boot?

I am definitely one of those friends that said..."I WILL delete you from my sidebar if you don't start posting." You've saved yourself...for NOW! Don't worry, I'll keep you in check and let you know before you're deleted, so you always have a chacne to redeem yourself. :) LOVE ya...and again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I'm very glad you updated your blog! =) I love reading it and seeing adorable pics of Sophie...who I miss SO much! I still don't really believe you that she's a difficult child, she was such an angel in my sunbeam class!
