Our trip was fabulous!! We had such a good time and we hated to have to come back to the REAL world. Counting down already till next year. 347 days to be exact. This picture is of Kathleen. We have been friends for 28 years. Her and I started this trip about 15 years ago and slowly added more people. Every year she has some funny get-up ready when we pick up the girls from the airport. She will start honking her horn and yelling out the window and totally embarasses Linda and Laura. This year was no different. She had her bubba teeth and her special glasses all ready for the big arrival and kick off to start the weekend. If she didn't go I swear it would not be a fun trip. She has us in stitches all the time. At the hotel her and I got onto the elevator first and was waiting for the others to come up. She hid in the hallway and as soon as they turned the corner she jumped out and yell, "BOO, I scared you, I think you pooped your pants." Well, come to find out it wasn't them, it was some young girl that was staying on our floor that was with a group from high schools of 3000 kids that were there for the debate team compitition. That girl was so scared that I really do think she did poop her pants!!!
We went to the garment district in LA. That was a trip in itself. Debbie, comes down here alot and purchases purses and walets and sunglasses and takes them back to Boise, Idaho and sells them. We made alot of purchases between the 6 of us. We had to pay .50 cents to use the bathroom. They had a sweet little business going on there. We were very willing to pay the .50 cents since we had to go so stinkin bad.
Here is my two sisters. They are 8 and 9 years younger than me, but we have such a good time together. Linda finally found her geans. You can't really see them very well in this picture, but HALLELUJAH!!!! We found her geans and we found SPRINKLES!!!!! You can check out more pictures and more about the trip on her blog. LINDA, on my side bar.
Adisynn had a visit with the dentist today. Poor thing ,she had a root canal, and 2 fillings. She did awesome!!! She slept the whole time and even came home and slept the rest of the afternoon. I think I need an open prescription for that medication. Not for her, but for me!! Both my girls and myself had terrible teeth. Berlynn had her 4 front teeth capped when she was 2 and I had my 4 front teeth pulled and the 2 eye teeth capped silver. Yah not very attractive!!!
Good thing she slept all day so I can get some stuff done for our girls trip tomorrow. Yay....can hardly wait. I don't know what it is but every time I leave town I feel like I have to have everything perfect. My house cleaned, clothes washed and ironed for everyone, car washed and I'm not even driving, grocery shopping, bills payed and butt loads of other stuff that won't even make a difference. My Mother was the same way and she would always say that if anything happens then at least the house would be cleaned if the Relief Sociey had to come in. Well, its 11:44 and I still have lots to do before I can go to bed. Will report when I get back. :)
