Confessions of my day

Mom Confession
Today I did not change out of my jammies. I figured yoga pants and a shirt with some buttons seemed "dressed up" enough for today. My visiting teachers even came over. Today I just don't care to be dressed. I could lie and say I had more important things to do, but really... I just don't want to put on jeans and remind myself how my hips don't really fit anymore.

I also ate the end of a bag of chips for a pre-lunch snack. mmm it was great.
Then it took me 30 min to decide to heat up left over chicken for my lunch. Brad ate yogurt and deli meat and strawberries. I don't like cooking. Cooking = preparing food. I like eating food. If I wasn't married to Brian we would have lots of eat out nights or frozen pizza nights. The only reason we didn't have a frozen pizza day is that I'm not eating dairy for a while. Otherwise that would have been an equally good lunch.

For some glorious reason Luke took a 3 hour nap this morning... And I chose to make a curtain for my bathroom window instead of playing with Brad. I put on Toy Story 2 and let him veg. That too was great.

Yea, it is just one of those days. But I'm pretty okay with that. It seemed like a good one to me. Any day spent in yoga pants (where you do not work out) is pretty good in my book.

Farewell Endeavour

When Bradley was just 6 months old we took a road trip down to Flordia to watch the Space Shuttle Atlantis take off. It was the second to last space shuttle, from the NASA program, ever to launch. A historic event. Today we watched the Space Shuttle Endeavour, riding on a 747, take its final flight - which is the final final flight for all NASA space shuttles. It will land in LAX and then ride to a museum where it will be displayed. All this sadly signifys the end of the NASA Space program. No further human space explorations are scheduled or even planned for. -Correct me if I'm wrong-
It just so happened that Tim and Lou Saponas, my in laws, are visiting us. So you can see everyone watching as the Endeavour comes over the Sierra Mountains and into the Antelope Valley.
If flew rather close to us! Palmdale happens to be the actual birth place of the Endeavour. It was litterally built here. There is a road named after it for goodness sake! So naturally it had to do one last fly over in omage to its first home.
I had to zoom out it was so close! What a great shot if I do say so myself! You can freaking see the heat tiles on the bottom!
 Bradley thought it was very cool and proceeded to tell me for the rest of the morning, Mommy that Cool!! That airplane COOL!!
 Um this is where I live. If you questioned what the "desert" looks like, well this is it. Although apparently these Joshua trees are endangered and only grow here. It is actually illegal to cut one down if you have one in your yard. You have to wait till it falls down to remove it.
Our little family. I had Luke with me while I took photos and watched. I'm really happy that we were able to be here to say goodbye to such a world changing program. I really do hope we will start human space exploration again someday. It is just that cool.

Crazy, I know

We couldn't take it any longer. We had to take a Disney trip. Yes, with our 7 week old Luke and 2.5 yr Brad. So far it is a good but hot day.

Brads first ride of the day... Buzz.
Luke's first ride ever... Peter Pan!
