In June of 2007 my Mom came to California for a visit and she brought her friend Eunice along for the ride. It was a glorious fun-filled week...!
They stayed for almost eight days - during which time; we tried almost every restaurant in LA, strolled along the "walk of fame" on Hollywood Blvd., hung out in Santa Monica on the pier and the Third St. Promenade, got manicures/pedicures and our eyebrows threaded.
We went to Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona; went to the Long Beach Aquarium, had drinks and dinner on the the Queen Mary, went on a 3-mile hike in the Hollywood Hills, walked around Universal Studios, drove up to the Hollywood sign and went site-seeing over to Paramount Studios. We went to see a play that had been turned into a movie and enjoyed the joyous sounds of the Brazilian Summer Fest at the Ford Theatre...not necessarily in that order!
This book is just a highlight of our many adventures...enjoy!
That's me in the photo! I think I was 5 or 6 years old...standing by the Christmas tree - still my favorite time of the year! How 'bout that painting on the wall (cool huh?) There are two great loves in my life - my niece and my nephew (Kennedy-6 & Ethan-5). They warm my heart and make me smile out loud all at the same time. My other two indulgences - I could eat sushi and chocolate everyday - at least two times a day (not necessarily together). Life is great right now!
