As Found In Our Garbage Disposal

Our garbage disposal has been sounding weird for weeks. Today, David discovered coins and rocks (amongst other items) in our garbage disposal. I wonder what two year old did that? Has Elizabeth been over?

We Called Them Pill Bugs

Growing up these little bugs were called "Pill Bugs", flash forward 30 something years and they are now known as "Roly Polys". Joshua and Elizabeth have been checking out Roly Polys for sometime but a few months ago Joshua got Sydney involved in the hunt.

Sydney loves finding Roly Polys but but she refuses to pick any of them up. Her cousin Elizabeth is not so timid, through Elizabeth's experimentation we have found out that dead Roly Poly's turn white.

Brooke Meets Nathan

Brooke and Nathan are four months and one day apart (Darn that Brooke for not arriving on the 22). Today they met for the first time and Brooke was enamoured with him.

Sydney too had been waiting to meet Nathan but once we got there she did her own thing until the end when she gave him a kiss. Tonight at dinner we had the following conversation:

Sydney: We go see Nathan!
Kim: Did you like Nathan?
Sydney: Yes, and Kevin
Kim: What about Rachel?
Sydney: What about Rachel

LOL, we know she loves her Aunt Rachel but this was too funny.

Coming The Summer of 2012

As many of you know my favorite kids shopping store (by far) is Gymboree. I should probably be buying stock in the company since I am there more often than I should be. It doesn't help that there is a Gymboree right across the street from my office in Pasadena. So Gymboree has this deal a few times a year where you buy clothes during a set period of time and you earn "Gymbucks" which allow you to come back and buy more clothes (yeah, nice) but get 50% of your purchase. For each $50.00 spent, you earn $25.00 Gymbucks and then when you come back for each $50.00 you spend you get $25.00 off. I usually have um lots of Gymbucks to redeem.

During the redemption period I typically buy clothes the kids will wear in future seasons. Right now, the summer wardrobe is on sale so I placed an online order for a bunch of summer clothes for summer 2012. Hopefully, the sizes will be about right. Size 5 for Sydney and Size 3 for Brooke. I also want to thank Gymboree for helping me plan my 2012 vacation, these outfits just scream "I'm going to Hawaii".

July Gloom, Who Knew?

Last week on my flight from Burbank to San Jose

This Just In, A TMZ Report

There have been speculations for months that Kim Thomas was planning on ending her nightly affair with Brooke. The relationship was floundering and Kim was reportedly becoming more and more bothered with the rut they had gotten into.

We have just confirmed that at 500 am today Kim announced to Brooke "I am done, this is over". According to an unnamed witness, Brooke took the news quite bad, "She was devastated, cried uncontrollably until finally falling asleep". Kim showed no sympathy and even stated "Its very likely that Brooke will fall asleep crying for the next several days at least, it's tough but she was getting much more out of the relationship than I was and ultimately all affairs must come to an end"

In other news, Kim spotted Kris Kardashian at Burbank airport

Counting the Throughs

Yesterday, I flew to Vegas, Laura flew to Phoenix, and it happened to be the same flight. I was in no hurry and we were finishing our conversation so when people started deboarding I didn't get up. Whenever a flight makes a stop before it's final destination the airline counts the through passengers and as they began "counting the throughs" I wondered what would happen when the number didn't add up, we kept talking. The flight attendant counted the throughs and there were 12 not 11 so she announced that nobody could get up until she counted again. At this point, I stood up and said "Oh, I am getting off". The flight attendant looked annoyed. Laura confirmed later that she was, her response to Laura's "We were conducting a social experiment" was "It's not very funny you should see the things people try to get away with"

Morale of this story: Southwest will catch you if you book a flight to Las Vegas and your destination is Boston in otherwords Cheaters never prosper

Not A Diner, A Drive-In Or A Dive

Last week Mike took me to a Guy Fieri's restaurant in Sacramento. "TexWasabi" is a combination of Sushi and BBQ. Weird I know......but the food was awesome. I had a salad and a "Gringo Sushi roll" called the Jackass. The roll is filled with Avocado, BBQ Pork, French Fries and covered in a Garlic chili sauce-believe it or not, it was fantastic. Good Food, Unique Location, Great Company = two thumbs up!

8 Things I Love About Terminal B

San Jose International has been working on new terminals for awhile and it has slowly been opening since April. Every time I am there, it's better and with more stuff open. Today after arriving, I walked down to transportation pickup and there was a Starbucks inside with Starbucks tables out by the curb. Sweet! When leaving I was able to walk through Security by using the Fly By Lane. Nice!

Here are eight more things I love about my new favorite airport. (1) Two Starbucks locations (2) A big electronic monitor displaying current weather (3) Leather chairs with power on the end tables (4)The terminal is beautiful (5) Chairs with two regular power sources and 2 USB power sources (Yes, I blogged on the chairs two weeks ago) (6) Free Wi-Fi throughout (7) Gate number 22 (8) illy, the swype way of saying I love you

The Thomas Twinfants

Surprisingly, this blog is not about the naked baby although it very easily could be since we now have three babies in the house, all naked. Also, this blog is not about theft, it easily could be since one of the naked babies below actually belongs to Elizabeth. This blog depicts how we keep track of our identical twinfants (since the theft).

The twinfant on the left, (Cannon) has coloring on the chest and a dot of marker on the back of her head. The twinfant on the right (Cannon) has dots of spilt Apple Juice on her legs and nothing on the back of her head.

7:00AM Flights Outta Burbank

Can't wait till tomorrow morning..... :s

Sydney Approves Of Her Play Yard

Depicted Here: Santa Monica And LA Live

We joined Jenn tonight and nabbed Hollywood, LA and Santa Monica for a total of 8. Joshua and Sydney loved it. I mostly just drove the car. We had fun though, unfortuantely bad I am too busy to get Sydney into the OC.
