The last half of May consisted of one family or friend visit after another. It was a blast to get to show off San Diego. While the Hughes were here, my dear friend Kimmy drove directly from her elementary school in Cedar City on the last day of school to San Diego to kick her summer off right. It's great because Kimmy & Cody are cousins so we all have this great family/friend connection where we won't lose each other.
I would love to show you a great pic of Kimmy -- but alas -- she will K I L L if you even point the camera in her direction.
On our adventures with Kimmy, we:
* Took in the Oceanside Pier
* Went to a car show in Escondido:
We drooled. We oogled. We awed.
*Went to Torrey Pines Beach on Memorial Day
* Headed to L.A. to show Kimmy the wonder that is the L.A. Fashion District & Santee Alley:
|One view of Santee Alley. If you like swap meets, deals, bargaining & lots of Spanish....You belong here.|
|This was Keller's lunch. Bacon wrapped hotdog w/Sunkist & Cheetos.|
|'Moust' have purchase at Santee Alley.|
We gave Keller $15 to spend when we went to Santee Alley. We told him it was his to spend as he went -- snacks, toys, clothes, etc. I swear that money was burning a hole in his pocket. No sooner than we handed him the money he spotted a toy gun. He proceeded to buy a bubble gun, SpongeBob paddle ball, an icecream cone, stickers, a gum ball.....He spent every last penny & loved every minute.
* Ate dinner at one of our favorite Diners, Drive-In & Dives locations in Pasadena:
*Stopped by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for this:
From Wikipedia: Urban Light is a 2008 large-scale assemblage sculpture by Chris Burden that stands in front of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The installation consists of 202 restored street lamps from the 1920s and 1930s. Most of them once lit the streets of Southern California.
We were go - go - go for a few days but kicked summer off right in So. Cal style.
