Last week we flew to Irvine, California, drove to Las Vegas, drove back to Irvine, drove to and from San Diego and flew back to Houston, TX. In Irvine we visited our son and his wife and my two gorgeous grandchildren. It was the Sean's 3rd birthday party. He has beautiful strawberry blond curls and doesn't speak too clearly yet, but he is absolutely adorable. In Vegas we visited Dave's cousins and saw the Freemont Experience and the Terry Fator show. He is a terrific ventriloquist/singer comedian. We also had a wonderful lunch at an Inn on Charleston Mountain.
We drove back to Irvine for Rosh Hashanah with Gabi's folks and the South African extended Family. I took a trip with Sydney (age 7) to our favorite store, Joann Fabric and Crafts, to buy shiny red fabric for her devil cape for a Halloween costume. Her Mom found a "devil kit" at Target with a red horn headband and a red tail which matched the fabric really well. Sydney said she wants to be a devil because it is really scary and kids with scary costumes get more candy when they trick or treat. I don't think it will work because Sydney really is a little angel. We had only a little bit of time to practice her sewing on her sewing machine this trip.
On Saturday, we drove down to the Marine Air Station at Miramar in San Diego for the air show with the Blue Angels. Wow is all I can say. Dave got some really great pictures. He says he took 800 so some were destined to be fabulous and they are. Some day I will learn to make a quilt from one of Dave's wonderful photos.
