Having just returned from a lovely vacation down south, I am sharing some pics and some good cheer here!
A few years ago I met another mother on a lil website called mayasmom.com; she and I "clicked" because of our age and the whacked sense of humor we share.
Two years ago she and I met IRL, without kids or DH's and spent a wonderful weekend on a mommy retreat in a small funky beach town bed and breakfast joint. This summer, we decided to get the families together so we drove down to LA and had a fab time.
Here is a pic of all of us! My friend has five kids, why? Well, because she is whacked, of course.
Here are some shots of she and I....I am the one on the left.
Our boys are close in age, and the two of them were inseparable the entire time! Between cars, games, swimming, and general mayhem...they had a BLAST together. Here they are, doing their thing.
Our daughters, although not that close in age, also hit it off and enjoyed each other a bunch!
While down in LA, we decided to hit up the amusement park "Knotts Berry Farm". I had not been there for at least 30 years and lots had changed! It used to be a funky lil farm place...now it is still a funky place and it is full of roller coasters! The upshot for me is that I managed to get my brave on and actually ride the rides, mostly because my daughter insisted. I was not sorry, it was a BLAST! And today...several days later, my voice is still cracky from screaming so much!
Here are some shots from the park.
Yes, I rode that SOB!
And this last shot from the park is hysterical because on the way home that night, they swore they were NOT TIRED. LOLOLOL I have proof this time!
We also hit "Hollywood" while in LA....and this was also a fun day! Here are some shots from that day.
I thought this pic was a hoot because I have never seen parking meters accept credit cards! Only in LA...
We had a fantastic get away and now that we are home, and the laundry is clean again, we can relax before we take our next trip...next week, out of state. **woot woot** summertime!!
I hope you all enjoyed the pics and thanks for being my cyber-friend!
