Tucson and California
Last week Wednesday, hubby and I returned from a weeklong trip to Tucson and California (which is why there were no posts for a while).
For your viewing pleasure, here are some pictures from the trip.
We spent time with Alex’s grandma and aunt in Tucson.
We had a tennis match with Alex’s aunt.
When we started out, we were all playing like normal adults…
…but things quickly deteriorated.
I consider myself the victor of the day.
Then, we traveled to California to visit all of my family and Alex’s grandparents. We hadn’t seen any of them since August. So I was grateful for the opportunity to see them, even if it was fairly brief.
One day in California, we went to the Peterson Museum. I love going to museums, and I really enjoyed the trip.
Alex and I both took pictures of the cars.
There was a super car exhibit
and my favorites were a Bugatti Veyron and a 1939 Bugatti.
I also liked the Lamborghini Muira, which was one of my youngest sister’s favorites because it looks like it has eyelashes.
The Muira is the car that my dad always wanted when he was younger. So he had to tell two of my sisters all about it.
Actually, he did that for just about every car in the museum, and they listened attentively.
There was a Hot Wheels exhibit. It had every Hot Wheels car ever made on display.
Alex and I had an obsession with hood ornaments and grilles.
At least one of the cars will show up as inspiration for a dress, at some point.
My youngest sister, Alex and I went up to the kid’s discovery zone with my grandparents, while we were waiting for everyone to finish in the museum.
On a couple of days during our trip, we went to Alex’s grandparents’ house. We always play aggravation with them. The girls beat the boys by a landslide.
Anyway, I just wanted to share about the wonderful trip and show what a beautiful family I am blessed with. 😉
