What? 6 months since my last visit to the States. My journey to the States was a lot easier than in January. A 3.5 hour public bus ride, 30-minute taxi, 5-hour flight to MIA, 5-hour flight to LA. Easy Peasy – 20 hours later.
We had a jammed packed schedule with lots of activities and errands. I saw my good friends Ed and Wendy, Kathryn and Gene, and got to see my sister show off her jumping skills.
Cole performed in a high school “Spring Sing” and was the only kid with a solo – he’s so amazing! As a matter of fact, he made a select men’s singing group for next year.
Kimberly had a fundraiser at the Spring Sing concert and raised over $250 for the Mira Costa Choir. Equally important, we had fun working side by side.
Kimberly put together a last minute girls happy hour where my friend Deborah joined us. Always good to see a fellow Texan enjoying the California lifestyle.
We see lots of weird fruits and veggies that we cannot identify in other countries, but this is a first for me. I could not identify this huge jack fruit in California. Evidently it’s a huge source of protein for vegetarians. It was heavy!
One of the main reasons I went to LA (besides seeing my family) was to see Cameron, my youngest nephew graduate from middle school. Notably, graduating with all “A’s.”

Cameron rocked the front row of his 2018 graduating class. Under these circumstances, it was no surprise as he did a jig exited the stage, cracking everyone up!
It’s always good to get the family together, but even better when it is a celebration.
In addition to being a rock star student, Cameron also rocks the volleyball court! We got to see him play in a tournament. He is a power house on the court like his mom and dad!
We celebrated Father’s day early as I was traveling to ATX on the actual day. We took my dad to brunch then walked the Hermosa Beach Fresh Market. As can be seen, it was a beautiful day.
Had a fabulous time, even though we packed a lot in a short amount of time during my visit to the States:
- Cameron’s graduation
- Cole’s Spring Sing
- Kimberly’s Horseback Riding Lessons
- Visit with a few friends (Ed & Wendy, Kathryn & Gene, and Deborah)
- Father’s Day
- Errands, errands, and more errands
