Re-Arranged ...

For the longest time, Justin has wanted to move the jacuzzi into the corner of our backyard. We finally did it with some friends the other day. The firpit went right next to the jacuzzi and we brought the table and chairs back to the covered patio. This morning it was perfect outside to sit, have the morning coffee, and enjoy our backyard.

Pioneer Saloon ...

Our neighbor told us about a saloon in Goodsprings awhile back, and how you can become a certified a**hole. We met up with some friends and rode out to Goodprings, Nevada, population 232. The Pioneer Saloon is the oldest saloon still operating in Nevada. It even still has bullet holes from 1915; a man was caugh cheating and during a scuffle between him and another man he was shot several times and killed. The full story is typed out and hanging on the wall above the bullet holes.

We didn't get the most friendly welcome, we all walked in and there was an older (drunkin) man sitting at the bar and said loudly "What the F is this, where the hell are you all from?" kinda taken back we walked on through to the back patio and sat at a table. After a little contimlpation if Justin could be a**hole enough, he walked back in and sat at the bar, right next to the crazy drunk man, put a few bucks in the poker machine and ordered a beer. Justin and the town local exchanged a few words, then when Justin commented on how the hell he had to become an a**hole, the local drunk got all excited and called the bartender over, saying we got anoher a**hole! five minutes later Justin was a certified a**hole, #8822

The local man soon became our best friend. telling us stories and jokes. Before we knew it he was inviting us to his friends wedding this weekend. Saying its going to be so much fun, even a Johnny Cash cover band is going to be there.

Disneyland ...

Our cousin moved to California to work for Disneyland as a photographer a few months ago. We haven't seen her since January. So me, Justin, and Kimy decided to visit for a few days. The weather was Hot Hot Hot, I think it may have been hotter there than at home. At least the crowds were low in bot parks and we were able to enjoy ourselves. Of course our first stop was the castle. Jessica knew the perfect spot to take a picture.

Justin loves their giant turkey legs, but Jess told us that they aren't realy turkey, they're ostrich legs! Not sure how I feel about eating ostrich.

The following day we headed to California Adventure and hung out right at the rope lines to the rides. Jess said that they usualy pick one family to take back first to the Tower of Terror to ride the ride first and by themselves. And yes we were picked :) We were escorted back by the ride to take a picture infront of the entrance with Chip and Dale. We even got to sign the Hollywood Hotel Guestbook. It was extra creepy going through with no one else around. When we got done riding and walked out by the pictures. There was a lady waiting for us and she informed us that we got a free picture that they took from the ride. It was a really cool experience.

We found the only four leaf clover in it's a bugs life, Bug Land ...

Here's the center of Disneland Marker ...

It was so much fun having our own little Disney insider with us. Almost every ride here was a cool tidbit or hidden mickey.
