20th anniversary!

I'm not sure what the computer time will say it is, but to me, it's May 28.  It's our 20th anniversary today!  Since our Singapore trip was our official celebration, we just swapped cards and went out, as a family, to California Pizza Kitchen followed by Cold Stone Creamery.  Sound familiar?  Yeah, it's what we did for my birthday too.   Hard to beat a sure thing.

Today I took the boys to Global Village and we bought webkinz.  (I had a buy 2 get 1 free coupon that expires May 31)  I got my first lil'kinz.  It's a little pink pig and I named her Petunia.  Ryan got a Leopard Lizard and Jake got a Blue Rhino.  This makes 7 (yes SEVEN!) for each of them.  It's Webkinz mania in the Brock household.  The good news is that it's pushed Pokemon to the side, for a while at least.  It still pops up every now and again.  It's really funny, because my kids NEVER played with their stuffed animals.  Their friend Ricky is the catalyst.  Ricky just moved here last summer and he has always been into stuffed animals and had already had a nice collection of Webkinz.  He's a natural born leader.  My guys are totally followers.  I don't think that everyone should be a leader, but I do hope that my boys can and will stand their ground when it counts.  Ya know?  I pray about that a lot.

Anyway, I've been finding myself going on their webkinz account and doing the gardening, feeding them and putting them to bed.  LOL!  Now that I have my own pet, I can reallly get in there and fix things up.  He-he-he!

When my son was small it was Beanies, and Pokemon. Yep...the good old days. My son was always into stuffed animals, too. He LOVED them!
Happy Anniversary to you both! I liked your celebration. Sounds GREAT! I mean, come and ice cream?? I'm THERE!!

There is not a damn bad thing to say about Pizza & good ice cream.  Congrats.
Most people are not leaders, but I understand the "stand their ground" desire as a Mom.
