My family and I enjoyed a wonderful trips the USA last month. We met lots of lovely people and did some fantastic things.
We flew to Los Angeles and stayed with friends in Pasadena. A very beautiful suburb and place to live. We based ourselves there for a few days and then headed off to see Disneyland. My boys hadn't been before so they were at a great age to really enjoy all the rides. A very expensive day but well worth the visit. Now I don't need to ever go again. Twice is enough for me!
We also went to Hollywood which was not what I was expecting at all - I was a little disappointed, but I am glad I have seen it.
We then headed out to Las Vegas to stay at the Monte Carlo Hotel, only a small hotel with about 3000 rooms!! It is right on the strip so the view from our window was pretty sensational. Met up with my brother and his family there and had two days of just hanging around.
We then drove to my brother's house which is in Clarkdale Arizona - a pretty nondescript drive, but we drove over the Hoover Dam which my boys thought was pretty amazing.
The next two weeks we spent in Clarkdale with my brother and his family, and had a lovely time with all the kids. Sedona is quite close to them, and it really is a beautiful place to visit. There is another little town right near there as well, called Jerome which is set in the side of the hill - very historical and had some beautiful galleries.
It was a lovely relaxing visit and I am finding it very hard to get back into the normal routine of life back home. I haven't sewn or even looked at anybodies blogs! Hopefully it will all come back to me soon, as I am so behind with so many things.
This McDonalds is in Sedona Arizona - it is the only one in the world with different coloured arches! Of course, we had to go and visit!
I am going to try and catch up on reading what everybody has been up to, and I am hoping that it will inspire me to get sewing again!
It all became clear
