We had a really busy day and it all started out with a visit to the IMAX theater at World Golf Village.
We watched: Space Station and Fighter Pilot
Space Station is the first cinematic journey to the International Space Station (ISS) - where audiences can experience for themselves life in zero gravity aboard the new station. Transported by the magic of the IMAXÃ‚Â® technology, the audience blasts off into space with the astronauts and cosmonauts from Florida's Kennedy Space Center and Russia's Baikonur Cosmodrome to rendezvous with their new home in orbit 220 miles above Earth.
Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag
At Red Flag, the international training exercise for air forces of allied countries, many of the worldÃ‚?s best pilots meet for the most challenging flying of their careers. Red Flag is the final training for pilots and their aircrews before being sent into actual combat.
Both shows were awesome. The Fighter Pilot was real easy for Rich to relate to since he has worked on the planes for years. It was neat to see his reaction and seriousness to the show. I gathered a new respect for my husbands job. Without him the pilots couldn't do there job. After we left WGV we headed to dinner at our favorite spot, can you guess?????? Yeah, Outback Crab Shack. We ate good and then headed home.
We decided to change outfits a little and head out to downtown to watch Macy Gray and James Brown perform for free. We had such a fun time. It was was just me and Rich since Mianna decided to stay home with Duke. We were a little late getting there and so we only heard part of Macy Gray singing Richie's favorite song she sings.. I try to walk away and I stuble,,,
When James Brown come out the crowd got crazy. I just loved it when he sang I'm a soul man and I Feel Good. I recored a little bit of each song on my camera.

Today Mianna and her 6th grade class graduated and are now 7th graders. There are 67 6th grades counties and her class ranked 6th in reading and 7th in math. I was so amazed by that statistic. I had such a nice time at the commencement and almost had tears in my eyes at so many moments. The slide show at the end was a surprise for the parents, with a display of baby pictures of each student with todays pictures. I'm so excited for her to be moving on to Jr High and yet sad at the same time. My baby girl is growing up too fast.

Anyhow we finally watched Star Wars and it was so good. It got me to thinking back when I watched the first one and was only a little kid at the time. I remember having the plastic swords and play fighting with Davina in the darkest spot in the house, that was the bathroom in the old house on Guam. You have all got to go out and see Star Wars. The dialect was so bland, but it's your typical George Lucas screens.

Rich cut the grass yesterday and it looks so good. We have our yard sprayed every month to keep it healthy and green. The house is so clean today; there isn't much for me to do. I have been relaxing all day, just watching TV and surfing the web. I found a new site to shop on. Body Central check it out, I like item 1101 :0) We might go watch a movie tonight... Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.... maybe. I'll just wait till Rich gets off work and we will meet up with him and decide.

This morning after I got back from Dukes walk, I found a crab in my garage. Duke was the one who sniffed it out. I decided to help Caleb out with his school project on Flat Stanley and we captured the crab. I have no idea how this thing got in my garage but at least it's not an alligator. LOL. click the title to see a slide show. click Flat Stanley to see the site

I can look out the window as I sit here on my Mac and I spotted a Robin. The funny thing is I seen was yesterday by my old apartments and didn't have a camera. it's too bad I was only able to take a picture from inside the house by way of the window. when I went outside he had flew away. I also spotted a stray cat walking around my backyard. Maybe the cat was trying rob me? I have no idea. Too many dang animals in my jungle. I do love all the chirping and singing that the birds make in our jungle.
I just learned how to use screen capture of my mac, and thought it would be cool to document a snippet of my email account. This is the cleanest it has ever been. I normally have tons of Emil in it and loads of junk. I actually cleaned it out today and since I'm a goof I have to blogg about it. Or I'm I bragging about it. LOL...... Now for the othe 9 accounts I have. hehehe
I called home from work to have Mianna tell me that she seen a Raccoon in our backyard and that he had got into our trash and took some food. Mianna was able to catch a few pictures of her. It's a mama Raccoon and she said it ran back to the tree that we have down in our backyard woods. I want to keep her. ehhehe. I asked Rich what we should call her and he said, Raccoon. She is just so cute. Mianna said her fur was all wet and you can tell from the pictures. Mianna was brave enough to go outside and get a closer look, but when the raccoon started to move towards her she went back in the house. Duke was real curious and tried to bark, but he just peaked out the window at her. Mianna said Duke wanted out bad, to check out the raccoon.

Here is a picture of the sun setting on Mothers Day. It made me sad to think of the sun setting in the west, where all my Mom's and good friends are. I miss you all and I hope everyone got my mothers day wishes. I got to speak to a few of you and left messages with the rest.
Yesterday was real special for me. After I got off work I headed home to find my hubby and daughter had bough me a dozen roses and we dressed and ready to go to dinner. I had to get dressed and I was having one of those, I hate every thing in my closet need to go shopping moments. I finally put on some thing real casual and we headed off to St. Johns Town Center. We had made reservation over 3 weeks ago and were ready to eat some PF Changs. For our appetizer we ordered our FAVORITE, the
CHANG'S CHICKEN IN SOOTHING LETTUCE WRAPS
Quickly cooked spiced chicken served with cool lettuce cups.
Then for dinner we had
LO MEIN COMBO
Thin noodles grilled then stir-fried with a choice of beef, chicken, pork and shrimp.
SICHUAN FROM THE SEA SHRIMP
Shrimp prepared in a red chili pepper garlic sauce
BEEF WITH BROCCOLI
Served Cantonese-style, tossed with fresh steamed broccoli.
Every thing was so good. The service was excellent and the food came out just in time. O my god and for dessert we had MY personal favorite
THE GREAT WALL OF CHOCOLATE
Six layers of rich chocolate cake frosted with semi-sweet chocolate chips and served with raspberry sauce.
Rich had asked for extra fruit. mmmmm. With all of this good food I had the best 2 glass of 2003 Clos Du Boise Chardonnay. I just fell in love with that Char, and will have to run out and buy a few bottles. It tasted just perfect with no alcohol over kill. They had it chilled to perfection and it went well with dinner and the best with dessert. mmmmmmm. The wine is so cheap, love it!!!!

Jenny is over spending the night and so we had to order pizza for her because she doesn't like chicken. Now that I'm stuffed like a pig I need to take my big butt butt to bed. I have to get up in the AM and go to work. But tomorrow we have reservations at PF Changs and I'm so looking forward to my Mothers Day dinner.
