Must See Movie!

Want something fun to do over the long holiday weekend. Go see the new Disney movie Enchanted. It is fun for the whole family. Kevin, Alex, and I went to see it tonight and we all really liked it. It is just fun! Go see it!!

Fun Finds

I thought this was a fun find. It is a fun way to display fruit. It might encourage kids and Kevin to eat more fruit. Love it.

3 Parks boys and one goat.

This gave me chills. Good for Paul!

This video gave me chills. Never would you by just looking at this guy think he could do that!! I always love an underdog. This is really cool. Paul Potts has got talent!! And I am not exactly an opera fan. But seeing Paul follow a dream has got me hooked!

Survived My First Mammo...Check!

Yup. I went. They squished. I got it over with. Yay! It was not at all so bad. The worst part was walking in the room shaking hands with the super sweet nurse Gaye and introducing myself as a nervous newbie. Next, she says nice to meet you take off your top. Ok, now let's get started she says. Hello. I am showing you my ta-ta's. The actual x-ray was not bad. Got 'r done. Until next year. Being a girl is so fun! Ha. Have a good day!!

We love Shamu!!

We just got back from San Diego. We went to the zoo and also to SeaWorld! We had a great time. The weather was not the best but, we had a great time anyway. Can I just say that I am an even bigger fan of Shamu now. We were up close and personal with the whales. It was awesome!! You can click on any picture to view it larger.

Alex was in awe at how close he was
to Shamu. Matt was pretty amazed as well.

Can you see Alex's big o'smile!?!
