King of the Jungle

This weekend, the kids and I took a quick trip up to my parents for a whirlwhind weekend! We so LOVE our trips up to Gigi and Popo's!!! But this trip had an extra special purpose - getting to spread some awareness for Sisters by Heart!

Kelrik Productions, a fantastic local theatre production company based in San Luis Obispo, is currently showing "Tarzan" and honoring Sisters by Heart in the process!!!  A huge thank you to my fellow Sisters by Heart Board member and friend Melissa - Kelrick does this because of Melissa and her daughter Ella! After the show, running Saturday and Sunday afternoons through March 10, the actors talk about Sisters by Heart and what we do, and accept donations on our behalf! It's a part of their nonprofit, Kelrik Cares, which gives back to the community! How cool is that?!? So, today, I had an opportunity to see the show (oh my, can you say so FUN and entertaining?!?) and speak a little bit about SBH afterwards. Apparently Bodie was so impressed by my speech that he walked off stage halfway through my spiel.  True story.

But it's ok, we still had fun!

Melissa and Ella, Bodie and I behind our table. How great did it look? Sherri of Kelrik Productions, did such a great job!
The kiddos and I by the Tarzan sign. 
I'll be honest, I didn't take them to the show - Bodie would have been such a nightmare at the show. But they did catch the last few minutes of it and were totally enthralled!!! 

Local peeps, if you have not yet seen it, do yourself a favor, run, don't walk, yourself over to Kelrik's website (click here) and get all the info you need to SEE THE SHOW!!! (and, ok, maybe make a donation in Bodie's honor while you're there! Thank you Kelrik Productions SO MUCH!) 

After some time with Tarzan, my parents and the kids and I headed to Cal Poly for a basketball game. We so love this tradition!
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my kiddos?
And the kiddos favorites...
...kettle corn with Popo...
...time spent with the Cal Poly cheerleaders...
...being put in a basketball net...yep, it really happened...
and MUSTY!!! 
 "Mommy? My favorite people in the whole world are you, Minnie (mouse) and Musty." - Bodie.

And that folks, about sums up our weekend! Thanks again, Popo and Gigi for another awesome weekend! We love you!!!
