Stateline...feeling lucky!

Last Saturday, my family chartered a bus to Stateline. It was great, dispite getting up super early it was worth it! There was a few Sex and the City slots! So awesome!

Dad and Tirso hitting one up!!

I went shopping at the Outlets there. Pretty good deals, wish I had more MONEY!!

Buffalo Bills was my favorite, it looked so much like KNOTTS! Even has a log ride inside!

Me right before the buffet, I was pretty tired in this pic!

Hitting up the Buffet!

Dad and Lety! We had fun! Can't wait for next year!

Getty Center

 Dave and I decided to go on a date to The Getty Center. We both have never gone and we've heard it was really nice. It sure was! It's up high overlooking the LA area and the ocean! We could even see Long Beach and Catalina Island it was such a clear day!
Mexican art made entirely of blown glass. Pretty spectacular!

There was so much Travertine, it is pretty amazing!

I love Weeping Willows!

The view behind me was spectacular!

The architecture was so grand.

The streams were pretty cool too. The brochure advises to listen to the changing sounds of the stream "sound sculptures" were put in using boulders.

I really loved these structures that hold boganvillia flowers!

We were walking in the garden and saw a pomegrante tree.

The stream ends up here in the Flowering Maze. I would have liked to gone through it! But it's all water.

There were some sculptures outside, incredible views!

One of my favorite pieces there!

Another fav, I found her so graceful.

Of course they had a bunch of 18 century paintings and I loved her.

Of course who doesn't love "Iris's" by Van Gogh, I embarissingly asked Dave if this was really the REAL one! We got a chuckle out of that. I knew it was but, I just couldn't believe I was standing in front of the actual painting!

For Halloween night we always give out candy and scare the kids coming up to the house to get it. Not the little ones but those darn teenagers. It's a kick scaring them, Dave dressed up as Micheal Myers and  he chased some kids down the street. It gave us a holar! And the neighbors were busting up! 
We have a fog machine and a strobe light and put on some loud scary sounds! The kids really like the smoke machine. Dave will sit there and act like a statue while the kids come up and wonder if theres really someone there!

Pretty creepy....
We also put up tombstones. Those always creep me out!

I slipped on my Snow White costume it was fun! We gave out lots of candy!
