Spike, Nestor and I at Disney Studios
Spike came into town this past Monday and we had a jam packed week of fun! Tuesday night we attended the Red Carpet Premier of "The Expendables" and Wednesday night we saw a screening of "Secretariat" at Disney Studios. "The Expendables" was disappointing to us. Such a huge cast with so much potential -- but not much of a story. Just straight action, CGI, pyrotechnics and tons of corny dialogue. "Secretariat" was amazing! A real movie for the family. The performances were terrific and I must have cried 10 times! It was directed by Randall Wallace ("Braveheart") and the racetrack scenes were just so exciting!!!!
Amelia was soooooo happy to see her big brother! She would light up whenever he would come in to see her and she just can't keep her hands off of him! Amelia would laugh and dance more whenever he was around. It's so cute. She doesn't see him all the time...but she definitely knows who he is to her. Smart cookie that girl of mine!
Here they are in her room. So sweet!
We also had a BBQ on Wednesday and Spike met his cousins who live 10 minutes from us in Calabasas. We sat around and talked -- even pulled out a Ouija board at one point as they told us a story about the woman who had owned their house before them and had committed suicide in the garage. Creepy! I'm not sure if Spike had even met them before and definitely not their kids, so that was a fun (spooky) time too!
