jelly jelly jellybeans!

The story behind the infamous beans goes as follows:

Ryan and I had just enjoyed an awesome meal at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, at Universal Studios, City Walk.  In the midst of our adult out night, I had a mommy moment;  Let's get the kids something from Universal!

As minds are often diluted after a margarita, I didn't realize when buying the (ahem) 11.00 bag of jelly beans that they were not your normal beans.

It wasn't until the morning after, upon further inspection that I discovered the flavors weren't cherry or bubblegum, but instead vomit, dirt, soap, earthworm, boogers, rotten eggs, etc.

Ryan and I tried a few, gagged, spit them out, acted like complete babies (dude- these things are NASTY).

When we got home I put them on the counter, not even announcing their presence to the kids. 

And then the kids spotted them.

And then began the begging.  And whining.

So, I fed them the beans... (while videotaping of course).

Enjoy! :D
