trip to portland

So I have decided I am not the blogger...I cant keep up, but I will still share good times!

Kenny and I went to Portland for a wedding and to hang out at the rose festival. We went on Saturday afternoon and made it there in time for dinner. The hotel told us our room was in two different places...turns out it was only in one. We ate at a great lil' pub, Paddy's. They had really good food. We saw belly dancers, with belly's and a booth that sold apple pie fries. We walked alot farther then we thought and of course walked all the way back during a parade in the dark and ever other street blocked off. Oh what fun! Then we walked a little bit farther and decided to go to Safeway. While walking to Safeway...yes walking! Some guys asked if I could give them a jump. I just made them aware that I was walking, not driving. Oh and as we were walking the walk signs would say "walk sign is on, walk sign is on". For some reason......I heard "one ninety nine, one ninety nine" :) The next day it was pouring down rain but we headed off to the park to tour the navy ship. We ate lunch at a fun little Mexican grill, Yummy! Then it was off to the wedding. They were married under a bridge in cathedral park. I know it sounds bad but it was really a cute lil' wedding. there was a stairwell down to a flat concrete area. And the weather cooperated for the wedding. We hung out and visited with friends until bed time. Unfortunatlly I had to work Monday night so we headed back first thing in the morning.

First trip to Florida and New Years!

I left December 29th for Florida. I made it there safely and on time. There was some confusion on getting me on the correct bus to get to the hotel and since I was alone I was kinda concerned I might endup in timbucktoo. I was very happy to see Kenny when I finally arrived. He helped me to get settled in the hotel and then we went for a walk and he showed me around Epcot. We ate and watched a christmas chior and watched my first Epcot fireworks.

The next day we visited Magic Kingdom and Kenny showed me around. Then we went back to Epcot for lunch and then back to Magic Kingdom to see their New Years Eve fireworks a night early.
On New Years Eve we spent the whole day at Epcot just walking around and riding the rides and people watching. There were sooooo many people, it was crazy! I didnt get any good pictures of the New Years fireworks cause I was just staring at the sky. After the regular fireworks they went around to each country in the park and let off fireworks because the US is the last to celebrate. Then it was midnight and time to celebrate. There were so many fireworks in the sky!

The first started out as a very rainy day, but that didn't stop us from going out. We took ponchos and headed for the boat to Disney Hollywood Studios. We had a fun lunch with his parents. Then Kenny took me on some horrifying rides...;) Ok, they werent horrible. He just wanted me to be surprised by every ride. So I didnt know what to expect. They were all fun though.

The next day we headed out to Animal kindom. It was getting colder by the minute. Luckly there was a little sunshine. After watching a few shows we decided to check out Down Town Disney and scored a free dinner at Planet Hollywood just by luck. It was a nice treat especially for Kenny's credit card. ;)

We spent the remaining 4 days going between the parks catching up on things we had missed and we watched the new Sherlock Holmes movie at a theater in Down Town Disney. Oh I also got to pick an oyster in Japan and keep the pearl. We also celebrated Wendy's Birthday while we were there. It was a great experience and I am glad Kenny and his family took me with them. I think you have all probably seen my pictures posted on Facebook but I thought I would share a little more of the trip here. We did so many things, I am sure there are things I haven't shared. We had a great time and hope to do it again and share it with the girls. And hopefully it is warmer next time!

Christmas 2009

Ok so, I have been a slacker since the new year. I had a great christmas with the girls and they were very happy with their gifts. After they came home from opening all the gifts at their dads we read the story of Jesus and opened one more gift. Then it was off to bed. Alli was so excited for Christmas morning. Alli then woke us up at 1am and 3am and then 5am when we finally got up. Poor Jaiden was still half asleep trying to figure out which stocking was hers. She opened everyone elses before I realized she was so confused. It was ok though. :) All in all we had fun!

Things that make you nervous as a parent

So we were watching a Christmas movie last night. At the end when the couple kissed, Allisynn (9) covered her eyes and said "gross, I hate kissing." Jaiden (7) said "I like to watch the kissing parts." In the back of my mind I'm thinking well thats kinda cute...boy was I wrong! Being the curious mom I am, I said "why Jaiden, do you like to watch the kissing?" Jaiden took my arm and held it and looked up at me and said "so I can know how." She is a funny, funny girl and I'll let her know, as soon as she turns 30 and I let her out of her room. :)

A new blog

I've decided to start a blog. With a new year just around the corner, there is no better time. I hope to share many funny stories and new adventures with friends and family.
