Posting...posting...one, two, three....

Alright, I have about a thousand pics to post to this blog, so I'll try not to do a lot of rambling on about them. First off, here's another birdhouse I made for our feathered friends in the backyard. I could get really into this... I'm thinking I might make some of these and sell them as a little side gig.

Easter was a blast this year. I hadn't dyed eggs since I was pretty young, so it was really cool to be able to do that with Dylan this year. I think that's one of the best things about having kids, getting to do all those things I had kind of forgotten about.


He was pretty scientific about making sure the colors made their way evenly around each egg. Here's the inspection process...

Finding Easter Eggs...

Michael & Bodie later that morning at my Brother's house...

And this past Tuesday, April Fool's Day, was neighbor Tom's 30th birthday. Bonny picked up pizza and made some awesome hot wings. We supplied the cake (which Dylan was greatly excited about digging into)...

Dylan has a huge crush on Bonny, he has a hard time sharing her with Bodie.

Wednesday morning we dropped the boys off with Michael's parents and headed out to the California Adventure Park. We had gotten those "Two-fer" tickets when we took Dyl to Disneyland and had to use them within 30 days. We hadn't been there before. It was pretty cool. Plus, since it was supposed to rain that day there was hardly anyone there. I'm always amazed at the amount of detail Disney puts into designing everything...

Amanda Visell's work in the "Off The Page" shop...

Faux fossils...

Pretty beautiful stuff...

Psuedo Wine Country...


Aaah, Heimlich.

Me being a dork....

They have this Pixar Parade at the park that really gave me pangs of guilt that Dylan hadn't been there with us. He would have shat himself over seeing Lightening McQueen & Mater. Luckily he's years away from reading my blog :)


I'm always kind of afraid of costumes and characters. Roz wheeled right over to us and asked Michael "Why aren't you clapping", it kind of freaked me out.



A picture taken over by the rapids....

They had an incredible display of original art from "Snow White". It was really something to see in person.



This was the one thing I couldn't bring myself to do that day. I used to be all about thrill rides, I have no idea when I turned into such a pussy. If it was just one single drop I think I could have handled it.... but it's this runaway elevator that goes up and down all crazy. I have this fear about being in an elevator and the cables breaking anyway. I'm afraid my heart would stop on this one. Maybe next time (yeah right).

And finally, this is what I'm working on now... so pics of that soon!

Awesome Shaunna! Nice group of pics. You should put up an Etsy shop to sell your bird houses. I'm sure they'd go over well on that site.

Thanks Colin! Good advice, I'll definately look into the Etsy shop thing. I totally want to do make some birdhouses to sell.

OMG Shaunna. I want, want, want one (or six) of your birdhouses! Are you kidding me? I think you've found another fabulous niche to explore artwise. I'd buy a gazillion of them.

Sidebar: How are the Littles? Amazing how fast they grow.

Hey Chung,
Hells yeah, I'm down. It may be a few weeks though, I have some art to finish up. Sweet!
I love Disneyland. I think we're going to get some of that season pass action next year.
