Have you ever seen the real Goodyear Blimp?  Did you know you can hear it?  It hums.  When I was young we would travel north on the 405 freeway and pass the place where the blimp would be tied down by long ropes.  I always thought it was so amazing.

On a recent trip to Long Beach with my sister Carol, we were passing Pomona on our way back home and there it was.  It's been years since I've seen the Blimp.  I had to take pictures.  Carol was nice enough to stop the car.  Now that I think about it, I am such a nerd, such a 'tourist'.  I would never imagine getting so excited over seeing the Blimp.  What has become of me........

Grandma's Day at Kayla's School and Halloween

I was lucky enough to be invited and able to attend Grandparents Day at Kayla's pre-school.  It was so cute and fun and I have to admit I did get misty eyed.  Kayla is such an adorable little girl. All the Grandma's were asked to share a few things about our kiddo's.  The things I shared about Kayla was:
She is the middle child.  She loves and try's to do everything her big sister, Kylie, does.  She is sweet and loves hugs.  She is mischievous.

Then we made the cute art project below.  I got to paint her hand purple, (she picked purple, it's both of our favorite color).  The poem made me misty eyed again.

Kylie has a Halloween book with a picture of delicious Halloween cupcakes.  We made some just like the picture.  What do you think?  Spooky, huh?

Jayden was a Candy Corn, Kylie was Aurora, Sleeping Beauty and Kayla was Dora.  I love Halloween!
