are my children and grandchildren and my husband. We miss our family when we don't see them for an extended period of time.
Our son Adam, his wife Cindy and our two grandson's Jackson (5) and Hunter (3) arrived in Los Angeles last Wednesday.
We spent four wonderful, crazy, fun, busy days with them in Los Angeles.
Day 1 - Disneyland. The grandson's loved it. They liked meeting Mickey Mouse
but the big hit was meeting Winnie the Pooh!!
Day 3 - Adam and Cindy toured LA and Leo and I took the grandsons to Legoland. What a great day we had. We had our grandson's to ourselves and I think we went on every ride that they could go on. Hunter and I agreed the Dragon roller coaster was "a little bit scary".
The boys are being silly for gramma's camera.
We did the studio tour - great! We did the 4D Shrek movie- lots of laughs, had lunch and then left. The lineups were getting progressively longer and I think we were all exhausted. We agreed that 4 days of touristing all out was too much.
We packed up our stuff and drove back to Yuma. Can you tell the boys are tired?
On the stitching front, I did do some work on my Mirabilia but will save the photo until the next time. I'm sure you are getting tired of that red dress. I know I am.
I did some stitching on my Fairies in the Garden too. I did all the green leaves on the left, the two little flowers, the almost butterfly and the writing. The writing is done with a #8 braid and what a pain! I also had to pull out one letter and I can still see the shadows in the background. I don't know if it is fixable and it annoys me.
When I came back from our family trip there were over 500 posts in my google reader. I read them all, every one but I did not comment. I'm sorry but that was just too many to comment. I did admire everyone's beautiful work. What an amazing group of stitchers you all are. I'm sending out pats on the back all around.
On Tuesday, the 23rd, Leo and I are heading out on a 8 night Mexican cruise to Acapulco, Puerto Vallerta and Mazatlan. I am so looking forward to no cooking, no doing dishes, no having to plan a meal and just relaxing. I don't even have to pick my towel up off the floor if I don't want to. I don't care if I get off the ship. I'm just looking forward to being pampered. And my stitching will be going with me.
Our son's surgery has been rescheduled to March 16th. Would you believe the surgeon overbooked. They told our son that he could show up on the 9th but would probably get bumped. So, we have had to change our flights, hotel reservations etc. Am I a little annoyed - YOU BET!!!
I will try and update my blog before I leave for the cruise but if I run out of time you now know why!
Until next time, keep on stitching!!
