Mother's Day haha

I bought mom some tulips and carnations and put them in the vase that Shawn got her last year.
The single rose was one I got when I took Bailey to get her hair cut on Saturday.

I hadn't realized that Kayla had never been to the Ronald Reagan Library in all the time we have lived here. How could this be? I've been there at least a dozen times. It seems like we went on field trips almost every single year.When Dylan was in kindergarten, he even got to actually go to Century City where Ronald Reagan had an office and meet with him and sing Christmas carols for him before he got too sick from Alzheimer's. We've gone several times when mom and dad have been here to visit and been able to see different exhibits over the years. We ended up going on Mother's day because we wanted Kayla to come and she had just gotten home from Montana on Saturday.

Look, they all match.

We got to go on Air Force One but could not take pictures inside. It was cool to see it. About a week later, me and Kayla were watching an episode of NCIS and someone was murdered on Air Force One. The TV show had everything just like how we had seen it. (except for the dead guy)

Kayla ran into the ghost of the president and said "hi"

We saw a model of the library.

...and Bailey's favorite, the jelly bean portrait. 4 feet by 4 feet and approximately 10,000 jelly belly beans. The artist first painted it in oil, then covered it in jellybeans and finished with a coat of polyurethane. It is funny that the president's favorite was jellybeans, but when Dylan met him, he gave the kids licorice instead of jellybeans. MAYBE, either he had already forgotten that they were his favorites or maybe because they WERE his favorites, maybe he just didn't want to share.hehe

We saw the Berlin wall...(part of it) (a pretty part of it)....and we saw the Magna Carta (dated 1215) on loan here from England. Not allowed to take pictures of that though.

While we were taking pictures, a swarm of killer bees attacked us. (swarmed over us) .I know that they were killer bees because they looked mean.

I have never, in almost 50 years been stung by a bee and would like to keep it that way. Bailey on the other hand, has been stung at least a dozen times and says it doesn't even hurt anymore.I blame her for their behavior.

I decided to stay away from her from now on because of her un-natural bee attraction thing she's got going.

Before bees..

Bees....Beees....Thousands of bees....

Thanks for those wonderful pictures Kayla.Happy Mother's Day mom!And here are the flower's Shawn sent her. It had yellow roses in in too but they looked funky so we took them out. Pretty.

Great Pictures!!!

Odd that Bailey has an affinity for bees...Riley does too! In fact, one day during a field trip to an apple orchard when Riley was in second grade, he caught a bee. Then, he held it between his finger and thumb, and pressed it's stinger against his other thumb to see what it would feel like! He didn't even cry!!!!! Weird McManus genes running through these kids!
