The most magical place on earth was fantastic!

But first and foremost, here's how far I gotten on the Summer House SAL before tonights stitching frenzy. Can't wait, I haven't stitched for quite a bit now since we went away for our vacation. We really had a great time.

We flew out to Los Angeles to meet up with my husband who was at a conference there. The kids and I toured Hollywood for a bit although it was really crowded since Michael Jackson had passed away the day before we did get there. Here's DS with Jimi Hendrix's star, he's a big fan.

The kids and I in front of the famous Hollywood sign. You can see the sign vaguely up on the hill.

The day after we headed over to Universal Studio's which was just awesome. I think we did almost everything you could do there except for a couple of the shows. The new Simpsons ride was a huge hit with my whole family. The Shrek 4 D show was amazing too.

The kids got to meet Bart and Lisa even! So cool!

And we had a close shark encounter! Youngest DD was not to sure about the shark, she thought that part was kind of scary when we did the Studio Tour.

Disneyland was so much fun of course. It was a bit different then The Magic Kingdom in Disney World and we did find some new favorites there like the Matterhorn and Indiana Jones. Alice and I did take a twirl in Dumbo of course and the Pirates of Carribean was even better then I remembered it.

It was a big moment when we did get to meet Sleeping Beauty! My youngest daughter was so excited she couldn't talk!

The family as a whole enjoyed the California Wilderness park too. It had some really neat rides and was well organized. The food was so good too! We saw their parade just before we left Anaheim and it was great. Here's DS with his new Nightmare before Christmas hat!
And this is when me camera batteries died. DH had his camera though so I have plenty of pictures from the rest of our vacation. We did drive down to San Diego and visited SeaWorld and saw all their great shows. There was some frolicking at the beach involved too. The mexican food down there is yummy, and the sushi likewise. I'm on the bread and water diet now so I can zip my pants again.
Thanks for all your sweet comments on my last post. Since I have been preparing for our trip, going on it and doing laundry after our trip I haven't read or commented on any blogs lately. Can't wait to see what people have been up to lately so I have to take some time for that.

Well, when there's that much fun with a vacation, it's hard to find the time to stitch, but your piece is looking great. And your trip looks wonderful too. CA is a great place to visit with all the wonderful things there are to do there. My sister lives out there and I wish we got out there more!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
