Move that Bus (Sneak Peak)

Today is the final day for the Extreme Makeover. These past few days have gone by so fast, I only had a chance to make it out one time to see things. ALL the streets are blocked off, so they really don't make it easy on you to get there. Anyways, I thought I'd post a couple pics to recap the madness in Fresno. Even though Fresno isn't a small town, this was HUGE for us. Everywhere you turn there's Extreme talk.

Here's a pic of the crews setting out to start demo

this is being built.

The "almost" final project. I personally am not a fan of the color, I sure hope she is!

Ty's crew also built that rock to climb at Fresno City College.

Since I have to work today, I wont be able to scream "Move that Bus" :( I'll just have to catch it on TV when it airs. And don't worry, I'll keep you posted on that day. Go Ty!

Goooood Morning Silva Family!

Alright, so Ty didn't show up to my home with his crew and megaphone, but he is here somewhere! I've got ABC's website up & I'm refreshing like crazy to find out. I may need a new mouse after today. I am a little bummed because apparently I was too late in volunteering the two of us & our services. They already have plenty of people & they're not impressed with my baking skills. Seriously? I'm a natural Betty Crocker. However, they did send me an email that I'm more than welcome to come spectate, as long as I bring a canned food item. I can do that. I might just bring my hard hat & sneek in. Either that, or I'll bring some cookies. Come on people, can you really have too many cookies?! I'll shove them down throats if I have to (just kidding people). On the food note, Chipotle is donating 300 burritos a night for 5 nights, go Chipotle! I hope this is the reason you charge so much for your food, in that case, I may have you for dinner tonight. Since I'm not wanted for any of my skills, I will gladly donate a can of beans (or 2) to go watch Ty & his crew do their thing, and to support all the other people who volunteered their time. I think they start allowing spectators on Sunday and it's thru Thursday (the final day!). I'm off work at 5pm, who's comin with?!

Just as I was about to post, ABC posted this on their wesite...
Fresno, CA, USA (KFSN) -- The Valley family chosen for the show "Extreme Makeover Home Edition" has just been revealed.
The home of Mary Ann Riojas is located at 23 E. Robinson in central Fresno. Mary Ann Riojas is a mother of four children. She was born without legs and only one fully developed arm. She has served as an ambassador for the Easter Seals program.
Her home is not equipped to deal with her physical challenges and has led to many serious injuries. In one week, Mary Ann and her four children will have a beautiful new home.
Stay with ABC-30 and for complete coverage

Rock N Roll, Grams!

Yea, that's my Grandma. She's a Guitar Hero just like me. When I gave her the guitar she said "let me see if I can remember from my rock band days." She made it through Hotel California on beginner, and it said she rocked! Looks like I'm gonna be jammin' for a long time...
