The Lemon Festival

Every year, Upland holds a Lemon Festival. Leilani's mom invited us to go, so we went. Rubie kept calling it the lemon shop. All was going very well until she had to use the potty.

There were only port-a-potties available, so I held my breath and brought her in. She was so horrified by what she saw, shall we say, "floating" in there, that she ran out. She didn't understand why someone left their poop in there. I tried to explain that it is generally where you leave it, but she was having none of it. It literally ruined her trip - she wouldn't even go on anymore rides. I never thought I would see the day that I would beg a tattoo shop to use their restroom, but trust me, it was the Ritz compared to the port-a-potty.

The first thing she told her dad when we got home was, "there was a yucky potty at the lemon shop."

Here are some pictures from before the "incident"...




Um, calm down, Lani - you aren't really driving...

I love the look that Lani is giving Rubie, it's like saying, "um, why are you acting so crazy?" It's even funnier after seeing the picture above...

Seriously, we are in trouble. Watch out, spring break 2023...

Watch out Spring Break 2023????? I remember when the baby in my family graduated from high school, she was like twelve years old at the time, and took a little trip, starting out by meeting up with Bobby and Terry's little girl in Amsterdam, an adult sin city half way across the galaxy, then on to god knows where and who knows what kind of trouble. It's called living your own life, get used to it little girl. Love Daddy.

Good times :)! Sometimes little girls need to spread their wings...and in all seriousness, we were very well behaved on that trip!!

Rubie is a crackup! Love her expressions, they just get better and better!

I would worry more about her diva "cat"walk than her whooping and hollering at spring break. I have SEEN her with her hand on her hip...you are in for it!

I don't know which of those pictures is more scary... Rubie on the back of a Harley, or Leilani the maniac driver. Those pictures made me laugh my head off. We had a great time that day!
