The Family

I forgot to add these pics of the family.
We took them before we left for the airport last Sunday.Nothing much happening here. I played softball on Thursday with a team from work. It was on astro turf! Freaked me out a little bit. Plus I haven't played in 4 years. It was cool to play under the Manhattan Bridge tho. I'll try to get the pic up.

More pics from Nicki's wedding

My friend Jen and her husband adopted a little girl named Emilia! So cute!!!

Minnesota for the Weekend

Sunil, Marlon, and I started the weekend on Friday at 4AM. We woke up, got dressed and headed to the airport. Narrowly cathing our 6:15AM flight, Stupid long security line, we headed off to Minnesota. Arriving at the Minneapolis Airport at about 8:30AM we were greeted by "Grandma" JoJo and Dayna. We then proceeded up to the "Country" to see my dad Craig! He lives about 45 minutes north of my mom. Sonali came over and we took "Yoshi" the Prius up North! I figured since Marlon is a city kid, she might enjoy being on a bunch of land and driving some tractors around. Well, the land brought mosquitoes and grasshoppers so she wasn't a big fan of that, but she did LOVE driving the tractors! My Dad is always up for some clowning around, so we had a ton of fun.

The biggest thrill was Marlon driving the big tractor called "Erma." You can see it on the video I've uploaded. My Dad kept encouraging her to steer me into the tall weeds and trees. Good times.

I fell in the mud! The Rum River flooded and left this patch of muddy gook behind. I thought I would be funny and jump into it to splash everyone, only I slipped and landed on my butt! Everyone else was laughing at me falling in the mud.

Then went to Nicki and Dustin's wedding, after all the Mud was was washed off, of course.
Dancing the night away.

Saturday we went to the Mall of America! We went to Underwater World. Marlon wanted nothing to do with the tunnel we have to go through with water and sharks over our head, so Sunil and Marlon went to the other side while the rest of us went through the underwater part. At the end of the tour they have a pool to pet the sting-rays and sharks. They are really creepy feeling, but it was cool!

Then the Mall of America has a theme park inside the middle of the mall called "Nick Universe." This is where my Sis and Marlon went on their first roller coaster!

This was a packed weekend full of family and friends. We had a great time and are ready to go back!!!

Playing with Photobooth

Marlon showed me this great little program on my new computer. I had no idea it existed. We had a ton of fun playing with it. So I leave you with the fruits of our labor. Please laugh, because we certainly did. At one point I screamed because Marlon took a FREAKY picture of herself. Let me know if you know the one I'm talking about.


AWWWWWW. Blech...

Marlon helped give my hair a "treatment" cuz my red hair is natural. Doesn't it look like I'm the professor from the movie "Top Secret" when he was using a magnifying glass and then looked up to see who walked in to the bookstore and showed his big magnified eye only to take the magnifying glass away to reveal that his eye was, in fact, that large to begin with??

Look mom, I'm in a tropical paradise! ;)

Good Times.
