Australia visitors, neon, Lego people.

Good morning, it is Tuesday.

Yesterday was back to a pretty normal day around here. Preston spent all day out with friends goofing off and riding his bike up the stores to buy candy and a Jamba juice. Afterwards he had soccer practice. I hear practice was pretty brutal as his team had a new trainer who put them through the paces. Hansen had his friend Nick come over for a few hours and they had a good time playing soccer in the back yard, building Lego's and playing Nintendo. Lillie played with neighbor kids and hung out watching TV. Maren had to work a very long day and we did not see her until late in the evening.

Our neighbors have some visitors from New South Whales, Sydney Australia. They have a few kids around the ages of our kids. Hansen played basketball and football with the youngest (who is 12) and showed off his chopper bike and stuff. Phillip was cracking me up with his accent and fun attitude. He said he was a bmx rider but when it came to riding the chopper bike, he was "not game for it". We told them all about the rides at Disneyland and California Adventure as they are headed that way in a couple of days. I think the kids will be up for the Tower of Terror, but the parents are out.

This picture is of the shoes one of the neighborhood jr. high school girls was proudly wearing around. We started seeing some bright neon shirts and stuff in Disneyland, but I did not expect to see it so fast when we got home. Look out, bright neon is back. This picture was taken at dusk and does not really show how loud the colors are.
Here are a couple of fun pictures we took in the parking lot of Legoland. Legoland is sponsored by Volvo and this was a scene where the Volvo was parked, and a Lego family is going into the park. In the first picture me and Hansen were mimicking the Lego dad and kid. Can you tell which are the real Julian and Hansen?

Apparently the rest of the family could not tell us apart either. Here Preston, Maren, and Lillie are trying to get us to hurry up...only they are not getting anywhere because they chose the Lego guys instead.
See you tomorrow.
