Last Minute Trip

We are taking a last minute trip to California. Literally, last minute! We decided Sunday night and we're leaving early this morning. Crazy huh? Well, it's our only window of opportunity between work and school for our older kids so we thought we'd take advantage of the time.

My mother-in-laws health is not very good right now and my husband thought we should take the time to visit his parents since they are both getting older.

We are going to have some fun too. On Wednesday we're going to visit some of our friends in Brentwood and Fremont. Then on Thursday we'll take BART into SFO for shopping and sight seeing and then later that night we're going to see WICKED which is the first time for all but one of us. Then on Friday we'll head down to Monterrey and Carmel to do the Aquarium and the 17 Mile drive and probably a little more shopping (looking) in Carmel. We'll head back up to Sacramento on Saturday and drive home the next day. It's a lot to cram in but we can do it! I'll make sure to take lots of pictures, too!

So, that means I'm going to delay the ending of the giveaway until the middle of next week sometime because I'll need to get through my email and tally the remaining entries that come in while I'm gone. Then I'll announce the winners. I hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day with your families.

Happy 4th of July to Everyone.

Beautiful Patriotic Quilt. Maybe sometime you can post a tutorial and/or share more insight on this quilt. I'd love to make one.

I hope you have a wonderful time. I shouldn't be jealous since I was in Southern Cali just last month. It's just that the Monterey/Carmel and San Fran are my favorite places. I am a California Girl living in PA.

Love your blog.
Sew long,
Melody
