No nose bleeds this time!

Someone Ben's doing a job for gave us these tickets. What a difference good seats make. I actually got into the game because I could see the players. It was fun. I also liked looking for all the famous people in the fancy seat section in front of us. To sit there you had to have had Botox done.
We were so close (this is not zoomed). See that lady down there. That's doctor Quinn medicine women. She stood up like 20 times during the game. Need some attention?( I didn't take this pic because of her, she was just always there)

Camping in Carp!

Haley loves the tide pools! She likes to poke the squishy anenamies(?) and have them spit at her. I told her I'm squishy and I'll spit on her but she said it's not the same.
Ben likes to show off his cooking skills. He'd grilled up some tasty shrimp. I wish he'd show off at home. Nice face too!!

Claires new favorite thing is to dip...her food that is. So she loved the beach, it was one big bowl of dip to her. Everytime she took a bite of chip she had to dip it in the sand first. Yum, fiber!!

Laguna Beach

For our 5th Anniversary we went to Laguna Beach. We've done this almost every year. We had a good time. We played on the beach, shopped, ate at some good resturaunts and swam alot. Our hotel was right on the beach but, we didn't like it very much...dirty! Ben got me a massage where I fell asleep and woke myself up snoring...not too pretty. The kids got to eat junk food so they loved it. All and all a good little vacation. This is our only family pic, it was late and we were learning how to use the timer.

Poor Claire couldn't get a nap, so she slept where ever she could! Including Dad's shoulders. Ben loved it, all the women would say"oh, that is sooo cute". I just held down my lunch.

Haley found a sea slug at the beach. It was pretty gross, it gooed all over her. Haley felt cool because all the kids came to look at what she found. Then these older kids came and took it from her and stole her thunder. So I did what a good Mom should, I threw sand at them!!

We went to the Marine Rescue place and Haley bonded with a baby seal named "Nick", isn't he sweet. I asked if I could leave Haley and take Nick...they said No!

That's Hot!

I try to get Claire to take swim lessons with her sister but, she says she can't because she can't find goggles that fit. What a diva!

Swim Lessons??

So Haley has been taking swim lessons, if you call it that. The teacher will ask Haley to do something and she will say"No, it's okay" or she'll take the things she's supposed to do and change them to her liking. For example, the teacher told the girls to drop the rings to the bottom of the pool and try to get them. Instead Haley took them to the step and did it from there. Much easier as you can see in the pictures!!

Must Read!

I thought I must share with you, my fellow bloggers, something that has made me very happy. I want you to also have this happiness in your life. You must read Twilight. I should warn you that it is addictive. Its a good idea to buy Cheerios to throw at your children so you don't have to stop reading. I have given the gift of happiness to my mother and she hasn't spoken to me in 2 days, she's obsessed with it! So please read and try to prove me wrong...I'm serious, go get it!
