Friday night we went out for dinner to Red Robin. Not somewhere we usually go but they email coupons to you for a free meal on your birthday so we figured what the heck, we hadn't been for, um, a long while! One of the good things about Red Robin is the Mondo beers, Bob sits here with his birthday coupon and his jumbo jug of Newcastle Brown!
Saturday was Bobs birthday, 21 again! lol! He gets a years reprieve from the big 4-0 next year ;) We went to lunch at Souplantation (again birthday coupon, see a theme here?) then grabbed showers and headed out to Rachel's for the combined "Cars & Bobs birthday Pool Party". We'd kinda planned on going to Disneyland after but realized on the way that it was probably a black out day on our passes (it was) and we were having way too much fun anyway at Rachel's so we stayed there till late (it was around 10.30 when we left). Didn't take any photo's myself but here are some I stole from Rachel & Andrews facebook pages, hehehe.
This is Rachel's place, sorry you can't call dibs on it, we already did. We've offered to trade, swap, and house sit for her. Seriously sa-weeeeet house! See that roof in the background, that's the house, the pool, then we were all sitting in the poolhouse section. LOVE the layout of their pace, LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Jon, Lin (and wife), Rocky, me and Bob relaxing under the misters. We decided Saturday night that our house needs palm trees and we've talked about misters for a while. They sure help cool the area down and that would SO help the dogs out.
Speaking of books, I've got to go to the library today and pick up books 6 & 7 in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Totally addicted to these, two more to go to finish the series so far but I hear Charlaine Harris is gonna be releasing a new book next year so YAY! Also loving the TV series True Blood too, which is based onthe books. Gonna be interesting to see how series 2 of the show pans out as they've changed a lot of little things that lead into future storylines, but as long as book 4 happens fairly close to the real thing I'll be happy. If you've read book 4 you'll understand this: shower scene onwards, they better keep that the same! That's all I'm saying!
Ok off to get creative!
