Part 2 of our trip - welcome to Palm Springs!!!

DH picked me up from the Quilt show on Sunday and off we went to beautiful downtown Palm Springs!  We were lucky enough to stay at Casa Cody.  It's a beautiful collection of old motels and houses that are grouped together.  I didn't realize how loud the Radisson was by the airport.  But at Casa Cody I could hear birds singing and surprisingly little traffic noise.

There was a delightful heated pool right outside our unit!  I was in it every day!  There were orange, grapefruit and lemon trees all around!  It was great fun.

We walked around downtown at will!  We had dinner at our favorite restaurants. 360 - a small jazz club that used to be Torme's.  Shermans - the best deli in the west!!  We ate there everyday!  Breakfast, lunch or just desserts!!

L, a good friend from Newport Oregon lives close by in the winter.  She came over for lunch at Sherman's and a little shopping.  It was great fun to see her and spend the afternoon with her.  Thanks again for making the drive!

After three glorious days in Paradise ... off we went to meet my daughter and her family back in LA for a surprise trip to Disneyland!!  The grandkids found out about it that morning.  Balloons in a box saying - "Go get dressed!  We're flying to Disneyland NOW!"

It wasn't quiet, but we walked everywhere.  It was very crowded, but we managed to hit all the roller coasters and almost everything we wanted to ride.  It was too much fun!

Goofy and me!!  (Goofy is on the left!)

Mr M on the Rocket ride.

We scored the front of the Monorail for a great ride!

Indiana Jones ride line was long - but worth it!

Even Flat Stanley enjoyed the entertainment!

Miss P loved meeting the princesses

We were able to sign up the kids for Jedi training - they really had fun.  Mr M fought Darth Vader!

Miss P fought too!

Almost everyone loved riding the "Screamer"  All but Mr M and me! We hung out together riding other rides in CA Adventure.  We loved Soaring and Cars land.

Two weeks after I left, we got back home.  I was up to my Mickey Mouse ears in laundry.  And there was just 3 days until our Guild Retreat started!!
