Vegas Birthday Wedding! May 14 - 18, 2011

That is right... the rumours are all true. I got hitched in Vegas on my 37th birthday. So, I guess from now on this Star Adventure Log will be a Jonny and Paula Star Adventure Log! Our Vegas adventure starts with a beer at YVR. 
We didn't pack all so awesomely and had to get some supplies when we got to Vegas. Where to stop but the Walgreens where Jonny found Twinkies! He treated the Twinkies really well and even let them snuggle with us in the King bed. 
While Jonny was finding Twinkies - I found really large cans of all my favourite beers. One of each please! Our hotel, The Tuscany, is conveniently located around the corner from my favourite store - 711!  
Here is Jonny with a pole up his ass! 
Here is Jonny chasing me around the pool with the camera... he got me! 

I found the Ninja Turtles at the Outlet Mall. This was the Premium Outlet Mall at the North end of Vegas and it cost about $20 to get there in a cab. I bet the Ninja Turtles woulda taken us for free!! Next time boys! 
My camera with the flash broke so I was using my Iphone 3G - no flash - so I got Jonny to sit close to the light. This is our random casino shot. 
After the outlets we went to the old part of town to pick up our marriage license. A little Mexican who was also there with his woman getting a marriage license gave Jonny a special arm squeeze which was ... well I said it already - special. It really made Jonny appreciate the special moment that we were all sharing together. 

I had to take a picture of the Jabbawockeez sign. They were dancing at the Monte Carlo. 
We ran into friends from Vancouver in a convenience store on the strip. We hung out for one night and then we never found them again... well - until we got home. Too bad they found us on the night we were trying to be good... we should have hung out longer!! 
This is my birthday!! This is the day... and we still don't have the rings.. off to the mall.. booooo!!! But.. Jonny got me a birthday ice cream at Dairy Queen when I got mall cranky. 
And that made me HAPPY! 
Jonny's favourite buildings. 
This is not Jonny's favourite building... but it is his favourite girl! 
Jonny and the skull by the pirate ship. 
We hit a Ross and I got new shoes that match Jonny's!! I scored with shoes.. I got three new pairs!! BUT.. how can you say no when they are only $30???
We ate at the America twice - we had steak and crabs - yummy!! OH.. and salad! 

There is the crab we were eating... 
Then it started eating Jonny!!! 
OK! The moment you have all been waiting for.... the wedding!! We were trying to get a drive through wedding going - but they made us get out. I guess you shouldn't let the def girl order your wedding over the phone. I think these pics pretty much speak for themselves.... take a gander... 

After wedding snack!! 
Our hotel room - we love the Tuscany and we will be back!! 

Ellis Island - next to 711 - Micro brewery - where the cabbies suggested going ... We will be back here too.. with cowboy hats! 

Time to go back to the outlets to return my Nike hoodie that had a hole in. (So much for saving money.. taxis are $20 each way remember) 

God billboard on the way to the outlets
New York? 
Jonny on a turtle at the airport. 
Me playing with the Iphone in the plane... cropping pictures and stuff... 
We thought we would end with beers too - these were by our pool. (Good thing it is Friday tomorrow - this blog is making me thirsty!!) THE END! 


  1. Absolutely love it-yaaay! It looks like you had so much fun and that's exactly what getting married should be about. Ordering the drive through wedding cracked me up, I am so stoked we get to see you both soon. Love ya and can't wait to meet Jonny,
    Andrea & Dewa xx

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.

Carrie found us! She …

End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 

Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 

Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.

But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.
