Going to fresno



The last time I made the trip to Fresno was when I was young enough to have pigtails and wear cute white plastic sunglasses.  I noted as I looked at this picture that my mom has a cute top and short yellow shorts.
OH..and we were eating watermelon on the side of the road with my aunt and uncle and two cousins who traveled there with us.  My Dad was holding the camera.

It is a long road trip to Fresno...
from here to there.
I wonder why we hopped off the I-5 and took a short detour to Fresno.
I doubt anyone explained it to me.

My brother Gerry was over yesterday and he remembered that we visited an underground house that a man made.  It was already turned into a tourist attraction by that point so I doubt I will be visiting it again.
We were on our way to visit my aunt and uncle and cousin who lived in Burbank...
and also  quite importantly to see Disneyland.

This time...
I'm flying out of YVR on an airplane  to land at FAT and guess who is going with me?
Anneliese....Judy...and Ellen.

We are heading down to the West Coast MCC sale.
Do you live near there?
Oh...do come and say hi!

One thing is for sure...
once again..
there will be watermelon close by because we will be rolling out rollkuchen!

all for now...

  1. Cutest post ever! Oh come on...put your hair up in pigtails just for old time's sake?

    Wish your mom and dad were going with you this time too. Wouldn't they have gotten such a kick out of all your doings.
