Camping on Mt Graham



3 years ago, my husband asked me to marry him under an old fire tower on Mt. Graham. The last 3 years have been so busy - school, marriage, home ownership, puppy ownership, etc. And we haven't had time to make it back and visit this special spot until last weekend. It was wonderful. 



Halo enjoyed his first camping trip. He didn't really enjoy the trip there and back in the car, but he seemed thoroughly happy when we were there.

Hollywood

I have been doing a little more traveling for work than I like to do. So, when a quick weekend trip to Hollywood came up, we decided that it was a good opportunity for Joshua to go with me and then we could enjoy a day before and after to do some vacation type things. On Friday, we enjoyed visiting Griffith Park and Observatory.











The next day, we enjoyed attending a Teen Choice Awards Gift Lounge. I taught lots of celebrities how to make earrings. You can read more about the event on the SoftFlexGirl blog.


It is a Soft Flex tradition to go to the original Saddle Ranch on Sunset Boulevard when we are in Los Angeles. I hadn't been in years, so it was a treat to spend time with a few of my favorite people at a restaurant where we have had so many great meals. My husband loves cotton candy, so he was quite happy when they brought a tower of it to enjoy!



We got to see some excellent views of both Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills. The view was especially lovely at dusk and dawn.





And of course, no trip to California is complete without some beach time. We drove up the coast to Santa Claus Beach. It is our favorite beach and is located near Joshua's great uncle. So we were able to stop in and have lunch and then spend a few relaxing hours in the sand before heading home.
