San Diego-Part 3

We were able to spend time with Ryan, Melissa and Addy! On Saturday we had the coolest picnic ever! The food was very gourmet! We say on the beach and got sunburned. Later that night we went to their house and they cooked yummy enchiladas. Addy is so funny. She just smiles all the time. We had such a good time with them.

San Diego-Part 2

The food was always delicious, but the desserts were YUM! I only got pictures of 3 desserts because I forgot my camera. But this gives you an idea!

San Diego- Part 1

This trip was so great, that I need 3 posts. The first 3 days of the trip we spent doing company activities. Wednesday was a dinner right on the beach. Thursday was Franks big award ceremony. August Busch IV actually presented the awards. He came around the room and introduced himself to everyone. The lunch was amazing. It was the most beautiful room and setting I have ever seen. The food was even beautiful.

Our room was awesome. We had a living room, 2 bathrooms and a walk in closet. We had 2 queen beds that were totally comfortable. They also had a hospitality suite open for the employees the entire time that had drinks and snacks. It had a pool table, darts and big screen T.V. and music constantly playing. It was fun.

Thursday night we were ambassadors for Budweiser. I know this sounds funny to my mormon friends. Frank has worked for Budweiser for much longer than he has been a member of the church. It's a great job that allows me to stay home, so he isn't going anywhere. Anyway, we were sent on a huge scavenger hunt all over the Gas Lamp district in downtown San Diego. We ended up on the 20th floor of the Hard Rock Hotel. We had a huge dinner outdoors with the most unbelievable views. The night was fun and we got to know people from all over the U.S.

Friday we had our Spa Treatments. It started with Manicures and Pedicures. Frank did enjoy his manicure. Then we went to the Spa. It was the greatest spa I have ever been to. We had massages and paraffin wax treatments. I sat in the steam room, and then in the spa area with cucumbers and all. Friday night we had another dinner. Their were about 10 stations of different kinds of foods. Different activities were going on in each corner of the room.

This was the most perfect setting for such a great event. It was relaxing and exciting to be together as Frank received the President's Award. He worked hard for it.

Fancy Trip

Tomorrow Frank and I are going on a trip. Alone. Frank is getting an award through his work for an idea that has saved the company a bundle of money. So they are sending us to San Diego to stay at the Hotel Del Coronado. They are showering us with Spa treatments, breakfasts, lunches dinners and fun outings.

A huge thank you to Juli, Faye and my Mom for making it possible for us to escape to be spoiled. We are so lucky tho have you. I know the boys will be very well cared for.

I will let you know how it all turns out.

Homerun Hitter

Jordan hit his first homerun! He really wanted to hit one this year, and he came close quite a few times with triples. But Wednesday was his big night. It was a bomb over the left field fence. Such a great moment. Frank had day shift so he got to see it. Juli and Max were also there. The screaming cheers scared Max for a little bit. The team greeted Jordan at the plate jumping up and down. He had the cutest smile on his face. I am sure he will never forget that moment.

Carter the Artist

If you look closely you can see the previous work of Clay in Yellow! It's by the A.

Carter has been experimenting with different artistic techniques. First is white acrylic paint used on the side of my beautiful leather couch. Second is red marker(no, not a washable crayola) on the front of his bedroom dresser. He was so proud of this piece. He said "I got tic, tac, toe three in a row". Then " I made a good A, and T and O". Yes, they are good letters Carter, but on PAPER! Oh, the canvases that 3 year olds create!

Mother's Day

I know I am a little late, but better late than never! Frank and I are so lucky to have such great mom's. They love us, and our kids no matter what. They are both helpful and supportive and give great advice! I missed my mom this mother's day (she was in AZ) but we had a very nice day. It's funny to me that most of my pictures of both my mom, and Faye are at Disneyland!

We LOVE Disneyland!

So I got the Disneyland itch. I was determined to make it happen. It worked. My mother-in-law and I took the boys to Disneyland. It was a total blast. Andrew, Clay and Carter went on the Matterhorn for the first time. Clay and Carter loved it. Andrew, not so much. It was so nice to have Faye to take the kids on the bigger roller coasters. I don't care for them so it was perfect. The Kaai family was there at the same time. We didn't get to hang out, but we got a quick pic. We ended up getting year passes, so we can turn this year into some fun!
