What a Brave Girl!

I can't believe Brooke is so big and grown up! During this trip to North Carolina I wanted to do something super special with her. So, Corey, Nanna and I took her to get her ears pierced. She was so brave and didn't cry ... looked a little scared but didn't cry.

Later that night my sister through a fabulous Mardi Gras Party complete with Gumbo, Jambalaya, Hurricanes, Breading Pudding, a Red Velvet Cake and lots of morning after hangovers!

Tomorrow I leave this fair town to fly back to San Diego. I'm going to miss Brooke, Michael and my sister so much. Seeing each other once a year is not enough. Hopefully that will be changing soon.

I am getting ready to watch the Oscar's, eat leftovers and get all the niece and nephew love I can!

Sitting in a Tree - but it's only a pepper

Last Saturday on our way to breakfast the hus stopped by a cute little park in Encinitas (our former place of residence). There was a guy in a tree, yes a guy in a tree! Apparently the city of Encinitas is in the process of cutting down trees in the park to give condo owners a better ocean view.

Well a resident decided that he didn't like the decision and made himself a little "treehouse". I was expecting much more of a treehouse and a much bigger tree, kind of like the crazys who live in the old growth Redwood trees in northern California. Not this one! It was about 16 feet tall and not a lot going on. Now this tree has been in the park for some years and the city promises to replace all the trees they cut down 2-1. I am a treehugger like the rest of us, but it was pretty funny to see the guy in the tree.

He is on day 4 almost 5 so I give him props. But like the hus said "what does he do when he has to poo?". Ponder that in blogland!
