Needless to say, things were not so 3D for me, but still it was fun sitting one row behind the girls, watching them devour three huge bags of popcorn, two bags of fun size candy bars and various beverages. Do you have any idea the noise that 8 girls can make while busily munching popcorn and unwrapping crackly caramel wrappers?
So now I have that lovely Monday morning feeling when the kid is at school, the hubby is too, and I am just here, hanging out with the cats. Ahhhhh! Nice. Time to pop open an icey coke and enjoy my space.

Ok so, let us start the tour with the hotel room. Being the traveling family that we are, Little Rita is completely accustomed to hotel room rituals such as take out pizza eaten from the box while sitting on the sleazy bedspread watching cartoons or whatever else is on TV that prior to the '08 Olympics, we were seriously deprived of. Other rituals include not letting the maid in no matter how messy the room gets, using all the towels and beauty products provided, and jumping on the bed. In these pictures we are passing a football "kitty" and trying to catch it on camera. Took about 50 tries.....After about 20 minutes we heard pounding on the floor/ceiling.....oh, oops! We forgot we were on the 3rd floor!
Ok here we have from Right to Left because it'll be easier that way, my dad, then mom, then LR, Me and Gary above. Right next to Gary is my baby brother, J. Ok then over there on the far left, that is my sister, J, and everyone in the middle is her kids and 2 grandsons. Believe it or not, one son is missing. He's 15, and he was texting! LOL Now I'd say that of the 75ish people that came, about 60 of us were related. I am hoping that one of my cousins will send some more pics my way this week.
What's that up there in the sky, Susan? It's a bird, it's a plane. These are my second parents when I was growing up, and my very best childhood friend, Susan. Yes, we were quite the pair on our street, Susie and Susan. With barefeet and rollerskates we wore a dent in the sidewalk between our two houses. Most weekends and just about every night in the summer, we were never sure which house we would sleep at, but one thing we all knew, was that Susan and I would be spending the night together, listening to music, making jigsaw puzzles, watching all night movies and eating candy.
Susan and Gary chill in the pool room. Eventually, everyone under 30, and some of their cooler parents, ended up having their own good times in the pool hall!
My Canadian cousin, another Susan, who I had not seen since I was 8 and she 6, my mom (a canuck too!) , and my cousin Lynn, also from Canada.
Susan and Susie again. The cousins version this time. Now, I have spent zero time with this woman in my adult life, andyou know what? It's high time I did! My god, my shoulders are fabulous, aren't they? : pSo I will end with this fun picture which is my sister and her 2 daughters, me and my daughter.
I am feeling verklempt. More pictures later, but I just wanna say, that next summer my sister turns 30 (haha!), and all the chicks are meeting in Las Vegas. 25 girl cousins, sisters, hip moms and friends in Las Vegas! No husbands allowed. You know what they say about Vegas...
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

Here we have part two of the yurt tour. If a picture paints a thousand words, how many paints a video? I know, I'm just a lazy ass. No really, I have been working very hard. If'n you don't believe me, just go check out the new stuff on my sidebar there. See, I cleaned my room just for you. So next time someone asks Mojo what a yurt is, well darnit, he's gonna know!
I apologize because, yes, I do have a nasally wierd voice. I like to blame that on my nearly deaf mom.
Seriously, do you have any idea what it's like having your cell phone tell you over and over and over that there is "no match found" to retrieve my voice activated voice mail?
Anyway, Gupta doesn't care what my voice sounds like.
Have a lovely day!

As you can see, it worked. The help has arrived just in time! So now let's jump to the finished product! Ta Da!
Now believe it or not, this post took me over an hour, so Mojo, you are gonna have to wait for part two, the inside of the yurt. That will give me more time to collect/edit "the bedroom" pictures. But I will tell you that a friend of ours once remarked that our yurt looked "just like the inside of an i dream of genie bottle!" Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it? Stay tuned.
Have a lovely day!
