Bog of Eternal Stench and Disneyland

Tis the season for summer Vacations. The Kids, the Niece, my mom and I headed off to the LaBrea Tar pits and of course, Disneyland.

If you've never been to the Tar pits you should go. Its right in the middle of Hollywood, not to far from Beverly hills (which I find Hilarious) Its small and at most you could spend maybe two hours there.

The Lake out side reminds me of The Bog of Eternal stench. It bubbles and makes noises and of course smells.

They have these statues in the lake that depict how the fossils got there, It looks sad. You can almost hear the baby Mammoth say "daddy don't go!" I know its evil but it kinda made me giggle. The Niece thought it was funny too so it wasn't just me.

They have a small Museum as well with all the fossils they have found, movies, a fishbowl lab, and a garden walk.

Doesn't the boy look so excited to be doing something educational on his Vacation?


They had gorgeous plants in the walk like this curly fern

Then it was off to Disneyland. Now don't get me wrong I love Disneyland, we all have annual passes. I just love it a little less in the summer, Its hot and crowded and we have to repeat our Disneyland Mantra alot. "The Lines are long and the rides are short."

The kids were very excited to see the new light parade, I just wish Disney would make up its mind. They retired it, sold off pieces, brought it back and then changed it. The Blue fairy has been replaced by Tinkerbell. That was a little sad for me cause she was always my favorite but the new Pyrate ship totally made up for it!

Ahhhhh! The sound of silence.

Well no extra kids this week and the DH is off to Foreign parts for 3 weeks. The TV is mine I can stitch in bed all I want! (always bugged the DH) Though I do miss him, it's nice to have the bed to myself.

So This week I got a nice little surprise. I was chosen to be this month's needlework project of the month on Craftster. It was for the Sugar Skull Lady I embroidered following a Sunny Buick tattoo. I was very excited to say the least! If you get a chance head on over to craftster and check it out.

Not sure how I'll ever top it, but I'll try!
