26 Miles Across the Sea...

Santa Catalina is the place for me! Josh was so nice to keep the kids for the weekend and Kerry and I went to Catalina Island. We had so much fun and met a few very interesting people. We watched movies, went on a lovely walk (where Kerry had some international visitors convinced that I was a star from Desperate Housewives... I know I know... they're thinking, "she sure is ugly... those makeup artists must be really good!), went kayaking, took a couple of naps... and enjoyed being bystanders at the local karaoke bar. What a perfect way to finish a wonderful week with Kerry here! Thanks KAM... come back anytime!
After our little kayak trip... in our rubber pants which didn't work so well for me. Seriously... there is a reason MC Hammer pants went out of style after a month!

Turkey Trot

Kerry talked me into doing a 10k while she was here. Dana Point has a run through the harbor on Thanksgiving morning. We had a blast. Kerry lovingly brought the rain from London. We were soaked within the first 5 minutes. My pants almost fell off a couple of times from being so wet and our sneakers took a few days to dry out. But overall lots of fun and laughter... and no Ker... I'm not retiring yet :) And no everyone else... we're really not this ugly... are we?

Hey Shug!!

Kerry and I were able to see The Color Purple. It far surpassed our expectations. The talent and music were amazing... and the story humbling. Well done Oprah!

The Happiest Place on Earth!

We decided to start our Disneyland passes while my favorite friend Kerry was here from London. We gave the kids a choice of Disneyland or toys for Christmas. Lucky for us... we get a year of happiness from Disneyland... and the girls won't have more toys to clean up :)Our first ride of the day... Soarin' over California. Makenna was thoroughly convinced that we were flying. The castle with the lights on... ready for Christmas!
