Last Weekend

We headed down to Orlando this last weekend to see my cousin who was in town with his college rugby team (California Maritime Academy) for the Sweet Sixteen Tournament. They placed 6th in the nation which they are pretty bummed about... personally I think this sounds pretty good, but I am just a girl. Anyway we kidnapped him for the night and took him into Orlando for some fun... or maybe I should say for some old fashion Florida weirdness.... We went to the Universal City walk and boy do they have a plethora of very special people down there! (for example picture VERY large woman in see through spandex pants) I found it especially amusing since the day before I had to listen to a conversation that a group of Floridians was having about CRAZY Californians (totally unprovoked)... if they only knew... I have run into many, many more crazies here then I ever did there... and we were in L.A. sooo.... back to the story

Isn't he adorable? I can't believe how much he's grown up! It seems like just yesterday that we annoyed each other to death. We had a total blast hanging out with him.
He wanted to see a gator but we didn't get him until it was too late to do that ... but I did spot an armadillo and we hopped out of the car and chased it around to take pictures of it (it was not harmed in the taking of this picture...or the hundred others on my camera actually it seemed a little too used to humans... we were only 2 feet away from it.)

I leave you with a picture of him sporting my blinging glasses... and I only do this because you can tell he's thinking - Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
P.S. We also did some fun shopping after dropping him off at the airport. I will show you what we were up to why I get it finished. It involved Ikea, and a little bit of Crate and Barrel and Zgalleries...
P. S.S. I spent all tonight putting together a VERY thrown together portfolio for my appointment with the art institute tomorrow night.

Cant tell you how amazing i think it is that you guys took the time to go see my kid, and to treat him so well, he just had a blast with you two, and I love the pictures, you two sorta look alike, hence how good he looks in your shades (he was thinking zoolander thoughts). Love the armadillo!!! Thanks for being so wonderful, I know you will do great at your interview tomorrow, good luck!

I'm so jealous!! I so miss Orlando. I'm glad you had a good time while you were there. Just remember...not ALL Floridians are crazies!! :)

Okay, I must tell you... there was a time when your parents did not even mention "Florida" in my presence! And more than likely cringed if anyone else mentioned it around me. Knowing full well that it would set me off! Seriously, I am NOT a big Florida fan nor am I a fan of Alabama!

As for the Art Institute...how wonderful! Had no idea but I'm absolutely sure you will blow them away with your awe inspiring talent! Keep us all posted!

And... isn't it great to have so much fun with family?!?! =-)
