Universal Studios Watch Out!

The Flat Tire

Well, Wednesday I went to Universal Studios in Hollywood with a couple of gals from Mary Kay. It is what is called a star trip and we go once a quarter. It was really fun. I had never been there! We left Bakersfield around 10:30 am and got there right in time to eat lunch. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe. We all shared beef and chicken fajitas and spinach dip. Quite good. Then we went on into the park. First we went on the back lot tour. It was really neat. We then made our way down to Jurassic Park the ride. If only someone would have told me how very wet I would have gotten I never would have got on! From there we went on Backdraft, then a show about special effects and then the Mummy's Revenge (a high speed roller coaster!) We made our way back up and saw a Blue's Brother's show and ended it all with Shreck 3D. On our way out we shared crepes at a little place on the City Walk before getting out to a flat tire on Karen's Mary Kay Caddy! It was a long and late night, but all and all a lot of fun!!!

Shannon had to work today so it was just the boys and I. We had planned to go to Sharon's house and swim all day, but that didn't happen! This morning we got up and had breakfast and went off to the boys swim lessons. They are both doing very well. After swim we went to the grocery store where David promptly got sick! Vomited all over the place, quite a few times. . . . So we ended up having a quite day at home. We watched a really cute kids movie, Arthur and the Invisibles. David and I took a nap, and Skyler played for a few hours with the boys down the street. David ate some dinner and seems to be keeping it down so hopefully that bug has passed.

We will see what tomorrow holds, I will keep you posted.

Love Ya,

Did You Miss Me?????

I can't believe that it has been this long since I have posted. I got a really nice e-mail from my mom yesterday suggesting that I get off my butt and update my blog!!! (not necessarily in those words!)
So what's new you ask. I will try and fill you in on what we have been doing, and if I miss anything, well, there is always tomorrow.
In the middle of April I decided I would start selling Mary Kay. I went to a spa day with one of my friends and had no intention of even buying anything, but really liked the products , wanted it all, found out how much money you could make and well, here I am, two months or so later having sold over $3000!!! I even have the beginning of a team with eight people signed up under me! Pink Cadillac here I come!!! At the beginning of May one of the other consultants and myself set up a display at a craft fair and got a lot of leads so I have been calling those lady's and inviting them to spa days (like the one I first went to). So if you need or want any Mary Kay give me a call or e-mail me!
Skyler and Amy (and Al Conrad) share the same birthday so Memorial weekend we went down to Orange County and celebrated. We got Skyler a pretty cool Digital Camera for kids for his birthday! (the camera is in one of the pictures) He turned six. I cannot believe how big he is getting. He had so much fun with Alison's camera one year when he went down south with Alison and John. This camera is cool because it is for kids; the viewfinder has two holes to look thru and it is bigger, easier for small hands to hold onto. We went to Knotts Berry Farm on Saturday and then then next day had a barbecue at Steve's house (he wasn't home!) Everyone had a great time. Brock's niece Megan joined us at Knotts. Skyler got his face painted like spiderman and David was two-face. I think Megan and Isabel got nice butterflys!
The boys are having a fun summer. Every day at their school right after breakfast they all put their bathing suits on and play in water outside. They are going to swim lessons every Saturday morning and seem to really be progressing. We go to the community pool in our track and they swim and have a great time. We bought one of those small pools (10ft round by 30inches) for our back yard. It has a little filter and is fun for those nights when you don't want to leave the house. Maybe someday we will get a pool in our back yard, but our yard is so small it would probably be all pool. My concern with that is the boys not having a swing set. . . and the cost of course! Well, maybe someday. There were a lot of bigger kids at the community pool and a lot of the things they said and thought were funny were not really nice, and not really something I would want my boys repeating (they are bad enough by themselves!!!)
Tomorrow I am going to Universal Studios with some Mary Kay ladies. I have never been and am looking forward to it! I will try and post with more frequency!
Happy Tuesday,
Love ya,
