still upright for the win

I’m still recovering from probably one of the best birthday weeks ever
Spring break with Diamond and the girls, skiing in Michigan
Despite none of us being able to ski before we got there, we got the hang of it, loved it
AND, all came home in one piece…colour me shocked
Although, it was a bit touch and go when Magoo got thrown out of the dog sled and flew head first into a tractor. We got REALLY lucky that she walked away from that one.
I’m not sure how many lives kids get, but that HAD to use up one of hers fo sho.
In unrelated news, I peed my pants on two separate occasions from laughing so hard…so you KNOW there was fun being had.
It was the perfect family getaway before I head back out on tour this weekend
Which reminds me, Sydney peeps, do you have your tickets for the tour yet? They’ve been selling crazy fast, which is better than awesome!


Also, wanted to thank you guys for being all congratulation-y and lovely, when I posted THIS ON FACEBOOK
I almost felt bad about pranking you for April Fool’s Day

SURE I did.

family fun ‘n games are the best (when I win)

We left last Thursday for a little family getaway time. We headed off to Ohio, like we have for the last couple of years. But this time, I went to the right place, which was actually the WRONG place the first time we went there a few years back. (you can read about it here if you’re all confused ‘n shit)
We decided to change it up this time, because Diamond & I were waiting for the kids to be old enough thought the kids would love Cedar Point, which was right by the hotel. And we WERE right…we all loved it. (will post about it soon)

The kids got to watch movies for the whole 5 hours drive (yay for Black Betty and all the gizmo gadgets she came with…including headphones thankyoubabyjesus) their requested bunk beds when we got there….AND they were allowed to eat junk food non stop, and blow all their pocket money on crappy plastic shit that kids buy and I always trip over on whatever they wanted to….AND I didn’t make them wash their hair once. It was indeed their perfect vacation. The greasy hair kind.

Even though this was a different Great Wolf Lodge than we’ve stayed in before, it was pretty much the same. Meaning fabbo-awesome, with a massive indoor water-park, full of giant slides and a shit hot video arcade on the ground floor.

That’s where we hung out and rode this thing ’til I couldn’t walk (insert bowlegged woman joke here) on more than one occasion

And I watched them play on all the games

I might have had a turn too and probably kicked their arises.
