Bumpers, Boys & Babes

What?

A whole week went by without me posting again? Is that even possible?


I guess with the summer time, YES! It is.


So what has the Eyeglasses & Endzones clan been up to?


We opted to take the boys to our amusement park but the afternoon we chose ended up being total downpours soooo...when in doubt, head to the Mall of America amusement park Nickelodian Universe!


It is a small park but it packs some punch...there are a couple of really great rides in that place if I do say so myself (not much of a thrill seeker these days)!

But then....Just by pure luck we stopped into Best Buy not to buy the Hanna Montana Movie.

And look who we bumped into???? Brooke White from American Idol! She released her new album and was doing a signing at the store. She was honestly soooo sweet! I can't tell you..

My favorite conversation of the day (between receiver and I)

Me: "What are you going to say to her?"

Receiver: "Uh, I'm gonna ask her how to be a SING-ER"

Me: "That's a great question. I'm sure she will tell you lots of ideas."

When the moment came to talk to her...he looks up at me and right in front of her he says

"Mom, She is too pretty to talk to...."

Awe....my poor baby got NERVOUS over a beautiful girl for the 1st time...and yes folks at the ripe ol' age of 5!!!

Don't forget today is my day over at the 5 Moms blog also....Two posts for the price of NONE!

Fun time..I would love to visit that mall, never have been there! Too bad I didn't watch AI, maybe I would know who Brooke White is!

I just love to see pics of your boys! They are the cutest...those smiling faces are too much! I wish I could reach through this computer screen, grab 'em and smooch on those faces! Of course, I'm sure they are greatly relieved that I CAN'T. ;-)

How neat that you met Brooke! I'll have to look for her latest CD...thanks for the heads up.

Oh, now that is too cool! I wish YOU were in the picture too, but that is WAY cool! She was one of my favorites. Brooke was so down-to-earth and just REAL. I loved her.

Glad y'all got to meet her, and how sweet that he thought she was too beautiful to talk to. ha ha ha
