Home again

I arrived home in one of the worst landings ever at Ontario airport. Usually planes land heading west but Monday was special. Because the Santa Ana winds were blowing especially hard we go to land heading east. This was after we made almost a complete circle around the airport in the lovely turbulent weather. I not particularly fond of flying in any circumstance but turbulence makes me especially unhappy.

Landing was just part of the fun. Once I got to my car, I had to fight rush hour traffic on Interstate 10. Not only was it windy but there were fires causing freeway closures. Why does living in Southern California have to be such an adventure all the time?

Kids' Birthday

Today I attended Rose and Marie's birthday party at Pump it Up. I don't have any small children myself (my baby is 22) but if I did, I would have their parties there in a minute. There is a giant room of inflated bounce houses, slides, and other toys for the kids to play in. This includes the kids over 30 also. Then there is pizza and cake and presents in the party room. Best of all, no clean-up before or after. Donna says "Don't forget the really long naps!"

Gilroy Gardens

I'm visiting Donna and her family. The whole family to Gilroy Gardens. I had a great time even if the kids were a little less than enthusiastic. We're going to the theater tonight.
