Each one of our kids has had the opportunity to do a special trip with their dad. Samantha and Dave flew out to LA for the Jackass 3D premiere. Sam walked the red carpet looking much older than her years in her blue mini dress. She even got hang out with the cast at the after party. Grant and Dave went to San Francisco and had a blast touring Lucas Arts with the incomparable, Joe Ching. Grant got to experience video game production from the concept up. This time it is Parker’s turn. She loves the show Tanked on Animal Planet. Dave’s brother is having a tank put in his house and invited Parker and Dave out for the event. She is having the time of her life. As a bonus, they were able to attend the VMAs on Thursday night. Parker and Dave hit Universal Studios on Friday and have also spent time hanging out with Brett and Wayde from the show. This is a trip she will remember for the rest of her life – spending time with her dad watching Pink fly overhead, riding the Simpson’s ride, chatting with Brett about the Scribble Angel.
You might be wondering what I have been up to while they live the rock star life. Well, I’ve replaced mildew-y shower curtains and mats, topped off the oil and filled the tires in the cars, and cleaned out Dave’s dis.gust.ing car. I’ve finished my “virtual opening” tasks for work, planned, and created a slideshow to share with my students. Somehow I’ve managed to get myself roped into volunteering for the presidential campaign. I have also been completely wrecked by the Stand Up to Cancer program which aired last night. https://www.standup2cancer.org 100% of your donation goes to cancer research. Their “dream teams” are doing incredible innovative work. The success stories are so hopeful, but the losses are so completely devastating. Will you give?
