Last Weekend!

On Friday the 24th we left to S. Cal to my Mom-n-law's dad's funeral. It was such a sad event (as all funerals are) And I wanted to share some of the pictures that I took on the way there.

This is the picture of us reaching the Grapevine which is a little past Bakersfield (which is about 3 hours into our drive)
Here we are passing Six Flags Magic Mountain. I've actually never been there but I do hope to go there soon.

And you know that you are in S. Cal (L.A. area) when you start seeing freeway over freeway over freeway)
Here is L.A. from the distance (we actually go to Orange County, which is about an hour away)
Here we are passing the Disneyland entrance in Anaheim.

If you ever watch the WE Channel then you must of seen the show called Amazing Wedding Cakes! This is one of the shops in that show. It's the Christopher G. Cake Store!
Here's hubby taking a picture of the statue that is always shown on TV. Gosh if you have never seen the show you should.. they make extraoridnary cakes!

And of couse before we headed back home the next morning husband wanted to try the famous donuts that are on the Travel Channels top 10. Personally, they aren't the best! But we took a picture of the joint!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Scrapping Everyone!

how exciting! My travels are always so boring. I never go though any cool places, plus I try to get to my destination as quick as possible with Westin and all. But you trip looked like so much fun!

Thanks for taking us along for the ride - I can't imagine being able to just drive by Disneyland like that!! I've never seen any freeways like that before either!

Aww, it's pictures of home for me! Been over the Grapevine way too many times, in all kinds of weather! Also, glad to see the clear skies of L.A.! As for Six Flags, I've been a ton of times growing up. However, I've heard that nowadays it draws 'not so nice' crowds these days. Glad you had a nice drive despite the reason for the trip! XO
