I thought it would be kinda cheesey but it ended up being such a fun concert. Here are the top 10 Idols with Kris in the middle. Man, he is good! And the night wouldn't be complete without an embarrassing moment...my earring flew off and fell in the girl's beer that was in front of me! I must have been dancing too crazy!
Next up was a quick trip to Vegas! We stayed at my brother's place so that Ryan could go see Harry Potter with those that would appreciate it...Cody and Nikki. I went and saw The Proposal by myself instead. We had a great time playing in the pool with their daugther Tessa who learned to swim while we were there. What a cute little mermaid she is and only 2 1/2!
The boys even got to take the scooters for a spin. Ryan wants one and I keep talking him out of it, doesn't make much sense with a baby!
While we were there Camryn got to borrow her cousin Hudson's walker, boy was she in heaven! It took her a day to figure it out but after that she was cruising around the whole house on her own terms! We may have to get one of our own!
Also, we got to go out with Ryan's high school friend Holly and her husband Tod. While we waited for Tod to come home from work I gave Camryn a bath. Lennon, their adorable son wanted in on the fun and hopped in! We had so much fun out to dinner with them and survived our first experience with a babysitter (Camryn was already alseep, a good way to ease into it).
Next my cute Mom came in town! Last time she was around Camryn, she was overwhelmed with all her cousins so it was great for my mom to get to know the real Camryn. Here she is eating her favorite...Plain Tart frozen yogurt! Ok, maybe it is my favorite but she loves it and now I converted my mom too.
Before SYTYCD, this was the only pic we got since we couldn't bring the camera in but I love how it turned out! Doesn't my mom look so good in my jeans?! That was such a fun night to spend together.
My mom and I also got to have pedicures! She spoiled me rotten while she was here! Nothing like a good mom to take care of all your needs and wants. Camryn was such a good girl waiting for us to be pampered. She loved all the colors!Here is Camryn playing with her new baby doll that my mom got for her. She loves hair so it was my mom's mission to find something that she could play with and not hurt her mom's head anymore! Thanks mom for coming down and spoiling us.
We got to try out our new backpack from my mom the following Saturday when we met up with Mia and Nate. We did some exploring at Point Loma in San Diego. It was so fun doing something new and the views were amazing. It reminded us a lot of our Spain trip with tennis shoes, views of the city and harbor and baby in tow.So comfy on our hike that she fell asleep. What a great thing to have for adventures like this.
Since we were trying out new things we headed to Ocean Beach where we had Hodads (def: a nonsurfer who spends his time at beaches masquerading a surfer, also see poser). Long wait but cool atmosphere and good food.
Even Camryn wanted to try the onion rings!
My wife forgot THE most exciting, dangereous and epic tale of how I saved everyone's life while we were hiking(at least that's how I remember it). Nate and I were walking in front of the girls pondering the cosmos and quantum physics (we really were--I felt so intelligent) and not even paying attention to the road ahead. I saw something move out of the corner of my eye as we came around the bend and I immediately reached out and swiped the snake with my hands as it lunged for Nates calf--barely grazing him with its venemous fang. Okay really all I did was reach across and say, "Oh my gosh stop!" and waited while the scaly serpent slithered on. Mia has a better picture--this is only half of him, he's turning around at this point. I see why they compare the devil to a serpent-they really are evil looking creatures. None the less I felt brave--give me my moment.
