My family came to town and I got no good pictures, there are a few decent ones. I know, we went to Sea World where the animals seem almost magical and we have a picture of a turtle, but a 9 year took that picture so there's an excuse for that one. We went to the beach, Sea World and the Dodger game. I had a REALLY good, fun and relaxing time. Highlights of the trip:
1- Seeing Shamu - if I thought that Jono would not be making fun of me for the rest of my life I totally would have let the tears flow.
2- Having my mom potty train Kalia, well not quite but she sat on the toilet which she wouldn't even go near unless it was to stick her hand in it and say "yucky."
3- Having my mom volunteer to change her dirty diaper.
4- Having people, esp. Syd who she has confused with Jerry Seinfeld, playing with Kalia so that I don't have to feel guilty for not playing with her myself.
5- Kalia said "ball pease" to one of Washington Nationals players during batting practice and he could not refuse and he gave her the ball. Then she got it signed by former Dodger Odalis Perez. By the way, when I told Jono he said, really? He sucks.
It was a fun trip and my pictures are not bien so I guess I won't be entering them in any contests.

Brooke performed at the Staples center, amazing. She did three songs and was amazing as usual. It was such a fun night. Jono had been sitting all day and two of his brothers are here McKay and Tanner, so he was a bit out-of-control. He was singing, dancing and making little comments. The other funny thing was how I had to convince Mckay and Tanner to go because they are both so cheap and don't like parting with their money unless it is for food or food. As soon as they got their first picture they were out of control. By the end of the night they had pictures with almost everyone from the top ten and Paula Abdul. They had to push their way through a fair amount of 12 year old girls to meet Archuleta but it was well worth it to them. The Paula pics are on their way so please hold your breath......
And here they are........
