New Ride

Got a new Ride today.
2007 Shelby Mustang GT.
This thing hungers to tear up the road
You can feel the engine saying, "Please, let me go. Let me show you what I can do!"

Anna made me say the following against my will.
"Okay, so the car really isn't my own. My boss had access to it and let me take it home and drive it for a few days."
If I had $20,000 extra and I didn't know what to do with it, this would be tempting.

Newport Beach

Went to Newport Beach today (June 11) with Shawn and Heather and their family. While there, we went on the pier and of all things, we found a pelican just waddling along.
It let the kids get real close. We think it was injured.

We also saw a bunch of fishermen, they were fishing for Mackrel. They threw in these lines with a dozen hooks on and they would pull out like 3-7 fish at a time. It was crazy.

Went to the Padres game with my lady
(Padres = Major League Baseball)
It was quite fun, we had great seats. Our team hit a homerun.
The Braves beat the Padres 10-1. At least we got to see lots of action!

Maile or Cherstin?

Is this Maile? Or Cherstin?

Wild beasts

Went to the arcade with the kids and won some prizes. Arden got some little capsules that dissolve in water and release a sponge animal and he was reading off the names.

Arden: "...there is a wild beast"
Dad: "It's pronounced wildebeast"
Arden: oh, there is a wildebeast"
Maile: "What's a wilde?"

Hee hee, I love these kids
