When I wrote to "R" this week and told him about what a great time I had at Stake Girl's Camp, his reply was "I thought the 'younger' girls were supposed to have more fun than the 'older' girls!" (By the way, "R", no offense taken at that 'older' jab!) I thought the girls would have more fun too, but I have to admit that I had every bit as much fun as they did. The fact that I got to be there with my own girlies made it extra fun too; it was really fun to see them having such a great time with their friends. It ALMOST makes me excited for the Pioneer Trek next year!

I'm late writing about Memorial Day. In the past it has been a day for barbeques, swimming and hanging out with friends but this year we were up for something completely different. We considered one plan after another and finally just jumped in the car with a "possible idea" and headed east.
We ended up at Tom's Farms near Corona; there were all kinds of Memorial Day festivities going on which only added to the fun. We had a delicious lunch while we listened to the band and sat outside by the pond - and then went over to some of the shops and tried on some funny animal hats.
After a couple of hours, we decided to take in a movie featuring two of our favorite actors - Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. It was a huge disappointment and we all agreed it would have been better to see our #2 choice which was a chick flick.
As we came home, we stopped at the Outlet Mall in Lake Elsinore and walked around.
It was a very fun day - I think we may have a new tradition!

When my friend Julie asked me to be her #3 choice in line to go to the Timmy concert, I really didn't think my chances were very good but luck for me #1 and #2 bailed on her - and from the bottom of my heart I thank those people!
It was such an amazing concert - I actually feel myself getting a little giddy just thinking about it. We had fantastic seats where Timmy would have had a perfect view of me if it wasn't for the woman in front of me who had the biggest hair on the planet. He sang my two favorite songs back-to-back...I'm pretty sure he did that just for me (maybe to make up for the big hair blocking some of my view).
I did have some major epiphanies at the concert:
*My hair was definitely NOT big enough to attend a Timmy concert
*Julie and I were the only two sober people there
*Drinking and immodest outfits do not go together (I am not speaking about Julie or myself!)
*You should always eat before you go or run the risk of eating a really scary hot dog
*A true Timmy lover will act ridiculous at the sight of Timmy no matter her age (I may be speaking about myself)
*If you know all the words to Timmy's songs you need to get another hobby
*You have serious "Timmy issues" if you go to his concert and then listen to his CD all the way home
*I am not the only Timmy fan in San Diego who would drive to kingdom-come to see him in person
It was an AMAZING evening and one I'll never forget. Thanks Julie!
