Dream Vacation, Coming Soon

See these cute girls? You can spot them soon in California. If we are lucky, you might even be able to see them on television. They are just about to embark on a fabulous California vacation.

Anna just turned 13 a few days ago. Her Uncle Michael and Aunt Diane invited her and some friends to come out for a visit. That visit has turned into a dream vacation. I wish I was going to join them. Here is the scoop. Early Saturday morning they are flying out to California. They will arrive there at about 8:30 a.m. From the airport they will go to get the place where the Kid's Choice Awards will take place. They even have tickets for the Orange Carpet. They are all wearing very bright neon punkish outfits (very 1980's punk rock style, if you ask me)in the hopes that they will be noticed.It was kind of fun shopping for the outfits. Ellie ended up with black and white checkered sunglasses just like the ones I had when I was in high school. It seemed natural to me that she would then need the checkered Van tennis shoes to go with them, but that was not in her plan.

That night and the next few nights they will stay at the Disneyland Hotel. The next few days will be spent having a blast at Disneyland and the California Adventure Park.

As if that was not enough, they will then hit Hollywood! I am not sure what is planned for that stop, but I am sure it will be wonderful. I think Michael is as excited as the girls are. He called his sister, Laura (Anna's mom) several times and asked if there was anything else that she could think of to make the trip even better!

By early next week they will be in Oceanside, CA for a little R&R. They can swim, go to the beach, hang out in the hot tub, you've got the idea. They will also spend a day a the San Diego zoo where they are going to ride segways.

There is even talk of maybe going to Seaworld. We will have to wait and see if that one happens. Either way, those are such lucky girls. They will have such a great time. I am can't wait to see the photos once they get home!
