Cool pic of the moon.
Stuff other than Disney trip:
Helping mom cook-or helping make a mess with flour.... I don't need much help making messes, I'm a professional!

The giraffes were awful cute. There were two babies and two adults.
These guys cracked us up! Both were lounging in the sun.
Maddie and I went to the "Seaside Lagoon" last week. "The Seaside Lagoon is a salt water facility. Water for seaside lagoon comes from the other side of the breakwater, at about 50 feet deep, travels to the near by steam generating plant where they use it to cool the turbines. The water then travels under the street in large pipes to the Seaside Lagoon where it is chlorinated when entering the lagoon and de-chlorinated when leaving the lagoon back into the harbor. The Seaside Lagoon has approximately 1.5 million gallons of water and has a flow through rate of approximately 200,000 gallons per hour." (this is from their website)

I didn't really take many pictures in KY as I should. Maddie had her first bought of strep throat while there. Every single time we go there she gets something. I hope that isn't foreshadowing for when we move back home!!!!!
We visited "Hollywood Forever" cemetery off of Santa Monica Blvd. This is our second visit. We also went in October of 2006. Grammy's favorite star, Tyrone Power, is buried there along with many other good ol' Hollywood stars.
This is Douglas Fairbanks (Sr. and Jr.) grave. You can tell how huge it is with Grammy standing in front of it. The pond that leads up to it sure needs some cleaning. The whole cemetery has some very beautiful monuments.
The mausoleum where Rudolf Valentino is buried is very ornate. Check out the statues of the Saints. Jason is 6'4" so you can imagine how completely overwhelming these were.
We're not sure who is in the grave in the middle of the pond, but it's so breathtaking. Maddie and Jason are sitting next to it to give some perspective.
This is where John Ramone is buried as well. This cemetery has been used in t.v. shows and movies. We saw an episode of "Supernatural" last season that was taped there. If you look in the distance you can see the Hollywood sign.
As many of you are sick of hearing me say, "I wish Maddie would let me put her hair up," you won't have to hear it anymore!!! It's not easy and I have to move really quick~thus the messiness of the do~but she's letting me put "pretties" in her hair. Thanks Dr. Nicole for the idea!
On Grammy's last full day here in sunny CA, we went to Hermosa Beach so she could put her feet in the Pacific ocean. It's quite cold, but the native Californians don't seem to mind. Maddie's favorite is the sand. It's everywhere, diaper, shoes, car seat, etc........
