Mia Quotations

Mia, Jill and monkey swim ring
On picking her up at daycare: "Grandma! I was so worried about you!"
In the car on the way home: "Unicorns are very polkadot horses."
Does she have any friends at school? "I have a friend and his name is Ms. Rodriguez." (her teacher)
"Prehensive (apprehensive?) means they are a little nervous."
??? I never know what she will say next!

Alan's (and Darlene's) Birthday Celebration at Cody's

Alan and Karin

Rick and Darlene




Joyce and Peggy
Roger, me and Alan. Water drops from the cooling spray can be seen.
So much going on lately. We went to Cody's again for Alan's birthday. Darlene's birthday was also coming up on the 7th. Jaime and Aaron split some ribs. Cory stayed home and watched the kids. We had a Scottish waiter who was funny but not very efficient. The band never got started while we were there. We did have to steal an umbrella from another table to block off the sun until it finally moved.

Stephanie's wedding shower. Jaime, Mia, Jill, Karin, Joyce, Peggy, Sylvia, Darlene, Debbie, Linda and Tina and me. Mary Campbell was invited but was unable to attend since she just got out of the hospital. One of the games was to write down marriage advice. Jill won that one. She said something like, "When you are sad, buy me a present. P.S. Don't cuses!"
