Happy Birthday Georgie Flint

Steve and I along with our friends Bruce and Georgie (the birthday girl) boarded our Jetblue flight at 1pm Friday the 16th en route to Las Vegas baby!! We surprised Georgie with the 2 bedroom Penthouse suite, perfect for the 4 of us to relax and just enjoy each other before taking in the Beatles "Love" show on Friday night, only after the most wonderful dinner EVER!!! Steve and I agreed this was by far the best! The place "Kokomo's" a steak house in the Mirage hotel, which is where we stayed and where the Beatles show plays, it was all very convenient.
We arrived at the hotel checked in to our suite and while Georgie and I beautified Steve made us cocktails before going down to our 5pm dinner reservation. We started out, you guessed it, with another cocktail and enjoyed an appetizer plate of lobster and crab claws, jumbo fresh shrimp and oysters on the 1/2 shell, Wow!! unbelievable. Bruce picked out the perfect bottle of wine to accompany our steaks for dinner. We had such a great time. Then off to the 7pm show. Steve and I had already seen "Love" but Georgie and Bruce hadn't and it is one of the top shows in Vegas right now, we were happy to see it again.

More Las Vegas....the next day..

Saturday we all slept in.... Steve order room service around 10am. we enjoyed our morning discussions over fresh coffee, croissants and fresh fruit and squeezed oj. Georgie and I enjoyed pedicures while the boys took in a little gambling, then we hooked up for a nice lunch at the Venetian. We took Bruce to meet "Denise" our jeweler, he picked out the sweetest diamond necklace for the birthday girl, "good job Bruce".

Saturday night was "Jersey Boys" another Vegas show... I LOVED IT!!!

***A California Adventure***

Reagan takes a little rest while we wait to see the Princess'

I loved the Dumbo ride as much as Reagan...

well maybe not quite as much.

Watching the "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" show,
the girls were loving it..

Today Sarah and I took Reagan and Paige to Disneyland. Since we have annual passes its fun to just pick up and go. We started out in the CA Adventure park and played in a "Bugs Life" then we decided to watch the Mickey's Clubhouse show, Paige really liked it and Reagan new all the songs. Then it was off to the main park. I went on Dumbo and Sarah did the Roller Coaster in Toon Town with Reagan. Paige was taking a nice little nap by this time. Reagan wanted to see if Snow White was in town so we stopped by where all the Princess's hang out and "Sure enough" there she was, along with Pocahontas, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. Wow!! she loved talking to her favorite, Snow White. Sarah is planning to surprise Reagan and have Snow White at her 3rd Birthday Party coming up in March, along with other really cool stuff, Reagan will be thrilled. After our Princess time we had Reagan's face painted and then it was 4pm... the day flew by. We had a blast!!!!!!

My baby turns "30"

Happy Birthday Aaron!!!!
Brenda, Amanda, Aaron and Molly

30 years ago on January 3rd, Steve and I brought this adorable baby boy into our would (with a little help from God). It's so surreal thinking back to when Steve and I were in high school "Wilson High" standing in front of the drivers training bungalow talking about when we would be married and the (2) boy's that we would someday have, we picked out their names and talked about what sports they'd play and how much fun it would be having this perfect little family.... Well we did get married, and we did have (2) and whoops a 3rd BOY!!! But Aaron was our 1st and we cut our teeth on him.. He at 9 asked his dad and I if we were still thinking about adopting a girl, and if we were could she be "Older" then him because he didn't want to be the 1st born anymore! Does that sound like we might have been putting to much pressure on him, ya think! Well Aaron has always put pressure on himself.. he is the typical text book 1st born, He never procrastinates is very meticulous, (some would say a "Clean Freak") very conscientious and organized, something he got from his Grampa Day. Aaron has 2 beautiful daughters of his own now and is very overprotective of his girls, he's a terrific father and a wonderful husband to Sarah. I am a very lucky and blessed Mother... Aaron I love you very much and I couldn't be more proud of the man you've become.
