Last Sunday we got a call around 10:00 am that we could go preview "The Little Mermaid" attraction at California Adventure so we high tailed it down to Anaheim for a quick trip-we all liked it. Sydney became scared at the last minute and didn't want to ride it so as soon as she protested I picked her up, threw her in the clamshell (thats what you ride in) and pointed to Scully. She recovered quickly and yelled "Let's do it again" as soon as we were exiting. We got home just in time for me to fly up to Sacramento that afternoon.
I arrived home Monday night, we had a quick dinner at Daphnee's and then David took off for the Central Coast. Wednesday we had someone come over and look at the damage in the kitchen and they will not only be replacing our water-damaged cabinets but they will be installing the muntin bars that I have been wanting in the cabinets on the north wall.
Thursday afternoon we took off for a Memorial Day weekend/James birthday trip to Phoenix. Brooke screamed like a banchee the whole way and Sydney was honestly the most pleasant girl ever (Yeah, she has never been so good). We stayed at the Hilton Pointe at Squaw Peak (this is something we did when I was in High School) and we all had a good time. Sydney would stay in the water forever if I let her, she has so much fun being in a pool. Friday morning we got up, David went to work, the girls and I headed to Laura's (she made great waffles) and the kids played together. When we got back, we all went in the lazy river and then had lunch by the pool, dinner was at The Hole In the Wall. After dinner, I took Sydney to see Yogi Bear at the dive in movie (it was her first) and she loved watching the movie while swimming. We heard about it the rest of the weekend.
