1. Since finding Mr. Turtle in our yard (which by the way he finally left after about 3 or 4 days and had since returned again/then left again) we have encountered yet another reptilian friend. He decided to take up residence in our porch roof.
Yes my friends, that is a huge, ugly, nasty Gopher SNAKE. He went up in our porch roof to eat the little birds that have built a nest up there. Needless to say, they are no longer living, bless their little hearts. We went and got our neighbor to come and help us get him down. He's lived here for 25 yrs. plus and we knew he'd have a better idea of what it was and if it was poisonous. He assured us this guy is not poisonous, but was huge compared to the ones he has seen. As you can see, from head to tail this guy was at least 4 foot long. And the hiss on him was mean. Hubs got a few of them when he took the broomstick to him! lol
2. My boys on the ice have been kicken ass. Granted, they lost the last game to those Penguins, but we still have 4 more games. The series is 2-1 right now, and all we need is 2 more wins. At least we didn't get skunked in the last game like they did the 1st 2. Let's go Red Wings!!!! Stanley Cup here we come.
3. My parents were here for the last 10 days. It was a very nice visit and the kids and I loved spending time with Grammy and Papa. We hung out, played euchre and darts, went to the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park, and had 2 birthdays while they were here. All in all it was fun and exhausting all at the same time.
Grammy and Papa with the kids!Wild Animal Park!
This is Me and Mom the week of our birthdays. Yep, she had me a day before her birthday (what a wonderful gift ahh Ma? lol). On my birthday we had chocolate cake and on her birthday we had Strawberry Shortcake. Yum!
Ok, I am pooped. Now that Ma and Dad are gone I have to get back to my routine and get my shower in before the boys get up from their not-so-sleeping nap. I will post more later. Especially after my Wings kick ass in Saturdays game! lol
