Oh what a weekend!
Sunday night we went to the La Paloma country club golf course to see one of the several displays of fireworks in our town.
Then I had a learning experience. I went to flickr and saw how other people take fireworks pictures. Lots of beautiful city scape's with fireworks. All I have are the bursts.
I'm not complaining at all. I swear.
Where we were at there really wasn't a view.
Plus, I needed to work on the burst pictures.
Funny story Sunday night. We get to the greens and see a nice area where we can spread our blankets out. We all sit down and realize why no one else was sitting in this prime location.
It was soggy wet.
I'm saying that we all looked like we had wet ourselves.
It was so funny.
After the show we folded up our heavy, saturated blankets and began the long walk back to our cars.
Yesterday Mom and I went and saw Eclipse. There was this other mother- daughter behind us.
so you know how a movie starts and it's a bunch of previews. Then the movie opens with a rainy street scene.
The mom says," I wish the movie would start".
Now she isn't a quiet woman.
I whisper back,"It is the movie".
The poor daughter spent most of the movie telling her mom to be quiet.
The mom was one of those people that make comments, or ask questions ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!
It was funny but annoying.
Heck, I didn't eat any of my popcorn because I was afraid of making too much noise and missing something.
After the movie was over Mom and I made jokes about that woman and her poor daughter.
I'm not kidding when I say she was the only noisy person in the whole theater and she sat RIGHT behind us. UGH :)
After we left the theater Rob called to say that their movie had also just gotten out and would we all like to have lunch at In-n-Out?
Mom didn't, so she dropped me off and headed home.
We missed her at lunch but we had a nice time at the restaurant.
Afterwards we came home and just chilled out.
Oh and I discovered something pretty cool Saturday morning; we have a baby finch!
Part of me is super excited but then I realize one baby could easily turn into 3 more babies and the circle of life is going to get crazy in that cage.
Here's to a beautiful week and hopefully a return of the monsoon and lightning photos!! YEAH!!!!
