Happy Times (lots of photos)

 Good Morning, its been ages since I have blogged but that's because my family and I have been on vacation to the amazing USA.  We had the best time. My boys are getting older and we think this was our last holiday as a family, we are planning on going back next year but they probably won't want to come with us so this one was extra special.

 We had a few days in Santa Monica, its a beautiful place, the beach is gorgeous and the pier is just awesome.  When we first arrived we had been up for over 30 hours, I was too excited to have a nap so was Jacob so we took off for a bit of look around while the others had a sleep. We wandered down to the pier and there was a school bus in the car park, so of course out come my camera. I love these buses.

 We had a day at Univeral Studios, now that is one amazing place.  We had been there before but a few things had changed and it was so good to see. Paul & Nicky met with a transformer, that ride by the way is the best.
 We had a day at San Diego Zoo, that was good to.
 The majority of the time we spent at Anaheim, the home of Disneyland. That place really is the most magical place in the world.  We had a 3 day pass so we enjoyed that alot.
 The roads are so busy, we didn't drive as both of us were too scared to, Paul said he might forget to drive on the wrong side of the road. Now that would be scarey.

 Everyday at 4.30 Disneyland have a parade, its so fun to watch. Here are 2 princesses. The one in blue is Cinderella, not sure about the other one.


I collected a few Disney pins as souvenirs, This year Disneyland is 60 years old so of course there were lots and lots of souvenirs for that.

Now we are home and getting back to our regular routine, I go back to work tomorrow.

I have much more to share with you, I can't wait to tell you about my adventure to the quilt shop.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Glad you had such a wonderful family holiday! I think the roads out there are terrifying, and I wouldn't even have to worry about driving on the right side of the road.
