Thats Zabtastic!

[the month is now May in the year 2011]

My dear friend Beth has some adorable children, who are made even more adorable by the fact that they are learning Irish Dance! Love. It. Through some twist of fate she ended up with 2 extra tickets for their year end performance and my mom and I just happened to be free. The kids did fantastic! Another friend is one of the owners of this dance studio Aurora Ritchie of the
 Rose-Ritchie Academy of Irish Dancing.
You can click on the link to see their awesome website.

We loved all of the performances and some of the older kids were amazing!
I only managed to get a couple photos, here they are.

Creepy Flyers

[In case you are keeping track, we are still back in April playing catch-up]

While down in SD I was cleaning my moms place and noticed what I thought was some kitty barf on the wall next to a table. It looked old and dried up, however I still thought it was odd that it was on the wall. Being the girl I am I found the longest broom we had and touched the area with it from as far away as possible. What happened shocked me, dozens of little flying things (bout half the size of a fly) started falling on the floor from where I was poking around. I continued to get all the "dirt" off the wall. and there was a crater. I didn't know what those little bugs were but if they were damaging the wall like that it was not good news. Once mom got home from work I pointed out the spot and explained the little bugs. She called an exterminator who came over bout a week or so later.

The diagnosis? TERMITES! The FLYING kind.
On the left is the hole found under all that "dirt". The photos on the right are what the Orkin man did, drilled lots of holes in the floors, under the sinks, around the perimeter of the house and large ones in a wall all to make sure those flyie guys were gone and wouldn't come back. We now have a protection against the crawlers and the flyers of the bug variety.

The Theatre

A good friend of ours, Mr. Ryan Agadoni was gracing the stage with his presence this past Spring (April to be exact) and so we decided to get "dressed up" and head over to Biola to catch a performance of The Odd Couple. We enjoyed the production, muchly. Ryan did a swell job and so did the rest of the cast. I enjoyed the intimate atmosphere of Theatre 21 as I have never been inside before.

Here are the very few photos we have from the night.

Leslie, Bradley (+Christie?), Amy, Paul and I all went went out to Santa Anita for an afternoon of horse racing, cheap food and beer. It was Amy's first time at the track, she picked a winning horse every time she DIDN'T bet. Overall we decided we should have bet on purple all day long!
