how many days until Nov 8, 2010?
Jennys birthday week is finally over. Yep, i said birthday week. Because we didnt have any money on her actual birthday, we decided upon birthday week, as a present to her. Jenny isn't a materialistic type of 16 yr old, but I am, so i like to show her a good time.
Thursday we went to Disneyland. Her boyfriend, Cody, came with us. We had a wonderful time. It was a lot of walking, this i knew going in, but I'm lucky that people dont mind stopping for me to rest my back and feet. Plus, i could people watch all day, and Disneyland is just the place for it. and the topper? They have Annual Passes for Disneyland AND California Adventure on a monthly payment plan, so we decided to do it. for a grand total of 12 dollars a month, Jenny and I have a year round pass. We only live about 90 miles from Disneyland, so it's a good investment.
Also on the birthday week agenda was visiting our local swap meet on Saturday. I never remember how much i hate the swap meet, until i get there. It is jam packed full of all types of people. Its called Mexico north for a reason. But, its well worth the pushing and shoving to get Scotty his socks, or our annual winter blankets. Cant beat the deals there.
Sunday we had a barbeque. Hamburgers, and cake and ice cream. Then we took Jennys boyfriend home, and it was back to a relatively normal life. Jenny will be going to the desert Thanksgiving week with her boyfriends family (mom, dad, and 2 sisters), so it'll just be Scotty and I. In 18.5 yrs of marriage, we've never had a Thanksgiving to ourselves. So, either we'll be really happy, or we'll kill each other.
Thats it, just rambling along. here's some pictures.
