Where did I go? Let me tell you.

Today my friend Erin came into town. I brought you the camera. Can you tell where we went?
Actually these photos got put in backwards so the first photo is on the bottom. We were driving thru the In N Out line getting sodas, and for some reason this "available" just caught my eye. So cheers to those of you who got that one.
We were on our way to the beach, Erin has been in Colorado for a while so she wanted to see the beach. When we got there I saw what she called her "Las Vegas special" pedicure. So since it was on the beach it to got snapped.
Of course the big red ball is the 2 story Target. She had not seen a Target quite like that and especially enjoyed the shopping cart escalators. But the funniest moment there was when I was telling her about some new shoes I got for myself. A wedge thong! We both got a good chuckle out of that one, even the other lady in the aisle who could remember when thongs were flip-flops.
Last but not least, this was a restaurant in the harbor by the Port Authority. One more time to guess.

New Old Addition

This is a new addition to my room from my Mom's old room when she was a kid. It was the first thing she bought on her own to start off a new and special style for her room. Obviously we have very similar tastes because its fits in with my room perfectly.
Thanks for letting me borrow it mom. :)

Its really pretty either way isn't it? These daffodils have always inspired us, they popped up on schedule after the flood, cheering us on to just LIVE and get on with life. We try to follow their lead.

New Weekly Special

The Flood Years

Something about the picture for my last post made me want to share more photos from those special two years. So the plan at this moment is to chose a picture from both years during the same week I'm posting, to see where we were back then. Does that makes sense? I hope so. heh So here we go!
Mom's Birthday 2005 - first relocated birthday for the family.

Enjoying a walk on Mom's Birthday 2006.

Old Photo Sunday

We have a surprise photo this Sunday. This photo was in Tom's unknown family box. The surprise part was slowly figuring out the family connection. Tom's Aunt's family had a goldmine in the San Gabriel Mountains. The family was always up in the mountains working the mine and clearing brush etc. They even had a small cabin.
