Time to Wake Up

In case you were wondering, the very best part of our California Coast Road Trip 2012 was this note that I found in the backseat. I am pretty sure Zoey wrote it on a particularly long stretch of 101 as Bryan and I sang a dramatic duet of the Eurythmics pop duo sensation "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)." Bryan does a great falsetto.
Please, let me to translate: My parents are acting weird. To which I am compelled to respond, Der Zoey, my prarins r stil akting waerd and ima grone up so gud luk weth that.

And then there was this which is totally going in Ozzy's high school senior yearbook, although maybe that's frowned upon, what with the empty Modelo and all.
Wanna see more? I like to pretend you are nodding vigorously, eager to lap up my vacation pics, so have at it...
Honestly, some of these don't even warrant anything clever; I just can't help myself. Look! More photos of my kids!
What's that? More, you say?
Ignore the circa 1992 dolphin tattoo on my ankle. I do. And yes, that is also a Chinese character next to said dolphin. What an asshole I was. Am. I just realized that I look naked behind my kids. Pinky swear I am not.
We also went to Disneyland on a 95 degree day where I bought a $17 bottle of water but would have paid $117, that's how grotty my bits felt. The Happiest Place and all that.
Also? A baseball game where we actually ate peanuts and cracker jacks, though I do care if I never get back.
And this. Because Ozzy was undeniably The Boss of our California Coast Road Trip 2012, poking and opening and walking and falling and peeking and peeing and reaching and, and, and...
And I am tired now. Was. Is. Forever will be. Sweet dreams are made of this. Who am I to disagree? I travel the world and the seven seas; everybody's looking for something...

xo,
S

Classic note. Eerie how much Ozzy with the beer looks *exactly* like Bill Murray in his SNL glory days. If he could walk, he'd be giving his big sis a noogie.

Oh my god, you are totally right with the Bill Murray reference! Right down to the off-kilter bottom lip!

More often than not he gets the Chris Farley comparison. For Halloween we're thinking of dressing him as the Chris Farley SNL skit with the Chippendales dancers--putting him in black tuxedo pants and a red bow tie.

I would love to come to your Halloween Bash! And FYI? I'm trying to convince Bryan to go as the Patrick Swayze to Ozzy's Chris Farley from that SNL skit, but am having a tough time convincing him. :)
