Will spare you from the boring details of my stateside visit, but wanted to post a few of the highlights.
I flew non-stop from Papeete, Tahiti to Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui. It was a lovely flight on their new dreamliner. They offered me a super soft, pretty turquise blanket and pillow. In addition, I had a small pack with ear plugs, socks and an eye mask. They served dinner and breakfast in addition to offering entertainment. No bad for a coach seat.
I landed in LA, but didn’t stay long. Two hours later I was on a flight to Austin. The next day many of my amazing friends showed up for happy hour at Abel’s on the Lake. For some reason, I did not manage to take a single photo.
I stayed at the exclusive resort of Michelle and Jeremy Martin and enjoyed super special visits with all my friends. Especially, Jamie who flew in from Sedona. Top photo Sharon, Sidney, and I, then Deborah and I and Jamie and I.
After a week in Austin, I flew back to Los Angeles to visit with my family. My dad is pretty sick as he battles with cancer, but he is fights on. I was able to spend many days with him which is just what we both needed!
Disneyland & California Adventure
My sister spoiled me with a rare day off at Disneyland. I had not been to the park in over 30 years and had never seen California Adventures. It was a true treat to spend the day with her, Cole, and Cameron (my nephews).
A few of the rides like to capture a look of pure terror on your face – but we fooled them!
On the new Indiana Jones ride it broke down just as we were finishing the ride…got to see the behind the scenes of the adventure.
My family came over for a tasty BBQ at my sister’s house.
Somehow I convinced Kathryn and Gene to join the craziness.
My fabulous sister, Kimberly and brother law, Troy
My sister and I spent a lot of time at my dad’s house. He is very ill but was having a god day below. This is my sister and I, my dad and two uncles.
