i'm pretty sure ledger didn't blink the entire ride...

his face says it all...
papa wanted in on some of that excitement!
the whole happy family!

bush 1

we met up at jons, so it was fun to see his lil penny again- its been a while!
hanging out at best buy across the street instead of waiting in line.
we finally joined the line as soon as we saw it start moving.
heading into the showroom, wandering around a little, checking the place out.  i had only been to the orbit room once before, so it was cool to go again.
somebody got their party on a little too early...  we had only been in the venue for about 10 minutes when i saw a woman passed out in the corner missing a shoe...  security soon came and escorted her and her out sans shoe.
