Phoenix Trip

OK...Kristina P., here I am updating...(check out her blog, it's freakin' funny but don't tell her I said that, she gets a big head...and she hates Edward...and I finally saw the movie and I did like it although I will never admit to it. Wheelchair boy watched it 4 times in 2 days...so I am now an expert on it and I have to say I am a James fan...he likes to play with his food and so do I!!!
It has been a LLLOOOONNNGGGGG week...I jacked my back up and was laid up for a couple of days and still had to help my Ma move to her new apartment. (insert whine here), then we went to Phoenix to see Princess PePe and The Boy.
As we were in the car I was taking pics, trying to get to know my camera. This is part of the new bridge...do ya think ya want to drive over this when it is done?


NOt looking so safe to me!!


Creepy?

More creepy?


Great sculpture
Look how much to water line has dropped!
Wheelchair Boy in the front seat...am I not supposed to be second in command?


McFly in the very back. We got a new Durango with 3 seats so I wouldn't have to sit with her (Miss OCD)!! She was STILL trying to rearrange my seat and put everything up with me so her area would be clean!
When we got to Glendale, or where ever we were, Baby Mama and the kids met us at the motel and we went to Peter Piper Pizza (kid's choice),

and me being the good grammy that I am...had to deal with it!


Chicken Nuggets (pretty good too) 'cause The Boy "I don't like pizza, I only like chicken nuggets"...

Nasty Pizza

The Boy coming out of the play tunnels

All I could think about was all of the germs, snot, and who knows what on all of the toys! It was really creeping me out! How often do you think they clean those things?




Wheelchair Boy dong what he always does, respecting his MaMa!
After we ate we went to the high class toy store Wal-Mart to take the kids birthday shopping. When they turn 3, we take them to the store and what ever they can carry to the register, they get to keep. We do it at 3 because they haven't quite figured out the electronics department yet.

The Boy got 2 monster cars and a big wheel

Princess PePe's birthday was the week before, so she got herself a princess bike


She rode her bike through the store (only a grandma would let a kid do that!) and he pushed his goods down the isle while we video taped it!

This is our very nice checker-outer lady!

Homer was trying to put the big wheel together with no tools...The Boy was so excited and so patient...a trait he did NOT get from his father...

Can you believe how many extra parts they put in boxes of toys? I tried to tell Homer that I think they went somewhere, but NNNOOOOOOOO!!!

The kids stayed in the motel with us, he talks in his sleep and fell off the bed twice without waking up and PePe snores...

Look at this!!! Ramada Inn! This is our shower in the handicap room! And it leaked all night long!
I took a shower with flip flops on.

Princess PePe had a soccer game and Baby Mama is getting her ready

Wheelchair Boy is so excited!

Homer tried to get her on the field and she would not go and play! She is so stubborn!


The Boy was happy!


Here I am trying to pay her to play...

She did go out and cheer in the end!
After that we went and saw Monster's vs Aliens...too funny! I highly recommend it for kids and adults...

Those pictures are great, I love the all you can carry for your birthday.
My birthday happens to be in May and you are invited to come to our house and use our cleaner than the hotel shower if you'll take me to Wal-Mart for an all you can carry day.
I don't think there are even any scary bridges to cross between Arizona and Oregon!
