The Phantom...and the New Addition...


I know in advance that some of you are going to laugh at this.. but we just got a new addition...

In saying that, you probably think we are hard core golfers (and Aana is...), but really the rest of us just enjoy going around the neighboorhod and spending time as a family on the cart. The girls absolutely love riding to the pool or Grandma's on the cart...and it is just a fun thing to have where we live.
That is the nice part about having a parent that likes gadgets... you can buy their leftovers ...which is how we got this. We are trying to think of a name for it... but nothing has come to mind yet.
Today is my birthday, and this year I took it into my own hands. I decided at the last minute to buy myself Phantom of the Opera tickets in Portland, OR...and book a hotel...so this weekend Larry and I went. My parents watched the girls and we had a great time. I wish I had pictures because the scenery was amazing, but I forgot the camera (and Larry said he rememebered...but didn't bring it because he said there was no reason for us to take pictures of ourselves...???) The show was amazing...and has me so excited for Wicked, which is coming early next year. We also went to the market, and instead of looking around at all of the vendors and street entertainers, I found myself finding bums and giving them all of my cash. Larry ended up dragging me away...once I was broke. It was fun though, and it was a nice break from the typical daily grind.

Happy Birthday Shanda! Maybe you can give me a ride on your new ...."Side-Shambler?" sometime. Or how about, "Rocket" --Yah, I don't know, but I think it's hilarious you're going to give it a name. Happy golf-cartin' around I guess.

Congrats on your get-away. Sounds like you had a blast with or without pictures. Some subdivisions in Provo use golf carts to get around the subdivision. That is awesome that you have one! (Happy belated B-day!)
