Shopping, Trucks and Trees ... Oh My!!


Last Friday I went shopping with most of my family on our annual Family Shopping Day! We were too busy presenting our cash and credit cards to take pictures during the day but here's some from when we stopped to eat at Great Mandarin. We had to laugh at our server ... Dan The Man ... because he kept calling us all "Lady." "Hey Lady, you want more Diet Coke?" "Hey Lady, I take your plate?" "OK, Beautiful Lady." Inappropriate giggles were abound! The only thing that would have made it better is if they all started singing "Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra." Good Times!

Lisa and Janet

Linda and Mom

Debbie and Me


I returned to the Cities the next day with hubby and FOUR kids in tow as we brought Brea, Evan, Noah and Shelby to Monster Jam at the Metrodome ... love the big trucks!!

Party in the Pits

The kids with the Subway Sandwich

By Grave Digger ... Dennis Anderson in the background

The kids by Maximum Destruction. Check out the height of those wheels! This truck performed for all of three minutes TOPS that night because of mechanical problems. The driver was NOT happy!

Us by Madusa - the only truck there driven by a woman - GIRL POWER!!

After the Pit Party we went over to Hubert's to grab a bit to eat. Here's Shelby and Evan.
