i wish my parents lived in california

my folks came down for a visit last week. i have been crying since they left........i am not kidding. we had so much fun. the night they came into town we went to the julieta venegas concert at the nokia theater. it was a cultural event. we first ate at taco nazo, we were the only people not from mexico. that theme continued into the concert, julieta is a mexican musician. she doesn't sing in english and my mom and i don't speak spanish. we just make up words to her songs, and this didn't stop us from singing at the top of our lungs.
the fun did not stop there. lucky for us it was dollar day at the santa anita race way. lance could not have been happier. everyone got a hot dog, drink, and ticket for a dollar. we were also able to see a statue of our relative georgie wolf. he was a jockey that road sea biscuit. my mom put a dollar on atticus jack, the horse with the curly hair, and he won!
our luck stopped there since we had to leave for the bonnie hunt show in culver city. my mom has always been a big bonnie hunt fan. it was really fun to see her show and meet her. she was a hoot in person.
what bingham visit would be complete without a stop at disneyland? there were halloween decorations everywhere. it looked spooktacular! here is a photo of why i need my mom here, they remember everthing, even plastic bags for splash mountain!

I know how you feel- kinda-... Lindsay is in town and I have been crying to Brian just at the thought of her leaving next week. It sucks to have family not near you!! But it looks like you had fun while your mom was in Cali. with you!

Tara, I share the pain. I hate that my mom lives so far away in Vegas. I need her here. I am so jealous of everyone that has their parents close by. Hang in there, you have a sweet husband who you can lean on. Love you much. Wish I had seen more of you while you were in town. Let me know as soon as you come again. By the way, thank you for the b day call even though it was late. I appreciate you remembering. Tell Colton hello from the Bott's!

That looks so fun! Even though it's hard to be away from Lance and Heid-O, it gives you a good excuse to do fun things every time you see them! I love the plastic bags.
