Many of you know that I went to Santa Monica to visit my sister for the 4th this year. It was tons of fun and the only part that sucked was when I had to leave and go back to work. So without further adieu here are the pics that make up my weekend:
Sprinkes got the party started with their yummy dose of pure sugar. I’m actually not sure there was any cupcake involved or if it was just a giant blob of frosting.
That night we went down to the Santa Monica Pier and rode on the Ferris Wheel. Before this ride I would have told you that I’m not really afraid of heights. And I still don’t think I am really – as long as I’m strapped in with some sort of bar or belt. I was not. We were sitting in an open gondola that swung with every slight movement. Not so much my favorite!
The next morning we went to the beach. Walking down there was no big deal. The weather was perfect and there weren’t a lot of people where we decided to go. Walking back, however, was terrible and I was prepared to live the remainder of my days on the beach.
If I thought trying to get across the sand was hard, then I was ill prepared for this:
BEAST is an understatement.
That night we headed for the LA Galaxy game. I know nothing about soccer but it didn’t matter – it was a blast!
Now I can say I’ve had my picture taken with Beckham…one of those white dots on the field is him. No really…it is…I promise.
On Saturday we decided to do something totally different and visit a ghost town. In my mind, I imagined it being spooky with stories of how at night you can still see the residents walking around. Turned out it was just an old abandoned gold mining town. It was still a lot of fun and I’m glad we went there rather than Knott’s Berry Farm where we were considering going.
So thanks PammyGirl for the adventures this past weekend. Until next time….
