Hooray for Hollywood!

This weekend we have our twin nephews, P and D, staying with us. Wow- are we ever on the go! But we're having a really nice time. For their birthday in March, their Grandma and Papa gave them annual passes to Universal Studios! They haven't had the chance to use them yet so yesterday, Kevin and I took them for their very first (ever!) visit! Oh boy, did we have fun!

Here they are at the very beginning of our big adventure!

We arrived early so, lucky for us, the park wasn't very crowded. Our first stop was the new Simpson's ride. What a hoot! I don't want to give too much away so all I'll say is, if you're ever in the area, you MUST go on the Simpson's; you won't be disappointed. After that, we headed over for the actual tour. Lots of fun and surprises there, too!

Next we headed for Jurassic Park -- ummm...the ride, of course! Boy, did we ever get soaked! It was nice though, and since it was such a warm day, we dried pretty quickly. Next we had lunch with the Flintstones. BBQ. Yum! We were talking about what we might like to do next and P volunteered the fact that he wouldn't mind going on Jurassic Park again. Uncle Kevin volunteered to go with him. D and I watched for them from above and snapped a few pictures when they came out. If you thought I was kidding about being soaked, check out these photos...

After having a fun time at Universal Studios, we thought maybe we'd cap off the day by going to the Dodger game - Brad Penny Bobblehead Night! Even better, the Dodgers won! Yay!
Today it will be a movie, swimming and dinner at Grandma and Papa's and then...falling into bed to SLEEP. Whew! A very fast-paced, eventful weekend. Thanks Deb and Bill for lending us the boys for a weekend of fun!

Looks like you guys had a great time. I think the last time I went to Universal Studios I was 7years old. I think we are do to go.
