    can you believe that's IT!!!!
    we left at around 7.30pm that night

    the sign says LAX


    after flying all night, it was a quick stop in nadi fiji, and would you believe, that for us to get out of the airport for a few nights would have been an extra $500 PER PERSON added to the flight?!?! no more free stopovers!!
    it was about 5am and stinking hot!! already over 80f and about 200% humidity.........back to summer!!






    after a couple of hours, it was back on the plane






    when the kids got back on the plane they were fighting over the window, so the cabin crew said whoever sits on the isle gets to sit in the pilots seat


    see the yellow signs?? back to the modern world of metric!!:lol:





    then it was a couple of nights in aukland




    back to the CORRECT siode of the road!!


    then we are back home again in sunny, hot Queensland

    next morning was breakfast with lilo and stitch. I think this was only a couple of days before we left to come home.



















    later that day i got to see my brother. he lives on boulder co, and this is the ONLY time in the three months that i could meet up with him. when we were driving across the counrty and were only an hour from him, he was in China!! he came out to Ca to take a panama canal cruise. i understand that he's busy, but i haven't seen him in years. the last twice i saw him was at our parent's funeral. He had never seen my kids. My micechat family were more open and welcomeing than my own brother he spent 15 minutes with us

    my sis in law

    I think i forgot to say that we stayed at the del sol this time, and it was OK, nothing to complain about. they did in fact go above and beyond by letting us in our room at like 10am, and then storing our stuff, as well as finding us a way back to LAX..... man did we have some luggage!!! enough for about 10 people!!


    next a day at universal. we were supposed to meet ginarella, but she wasn't well
    poor kid being shoved at dora!


    I know I'm a bad mother, but jr mr tassie LOVES jaws


    he was soooo excited to be going on the trolley tour


    good shot... well i think it is!


    from back to the future

    these dancing cars are from the fast and the furious tokyo drift
    they do a dance set to music


    the flood


    the subway earthquake


    some homes on wisteria lane




    I thought this was funny, and just a prop


    the grinch


    the war of the worlds




    lunch!
    see I should have tried a pretzel!!












    on to the lower area. you can't really see it, but it's the WB buildings and the water tower...... "they lock us in the tower, whenever we get caught" animainiacs fans!


    all of a sudden we see movement below!! real, for true life DEER!!! there were three, but i was so excited i only got a pic of this one... no we don't have deer here either!!
    I guess that explains the deer crossing sign!!


    poor kid!! no-one else wanted to be in the pic, so she had to do the bunny ears gthing to herself...
    Funny thing is that jr mr tassie has seen jurrasic park since we came home and LOVES it!! he wouldn't even go on the ride!!




    big, isn't he???

    Btw Tassie, I don't know if you know it or not, but you took this picture in UN Plaza. The buildings you were standing next to was the first UN before it moved to New York. (That's SF City Hall in the background)

    Awesome trip report. Thank you so very much for sharing.
    no, I didn't know that! thanks for sharing! If anyone has any other info about any of the pics, i'd love to hear it!!

    I have two brothers, one lives in the US, the other in the house we grew up in. Both went to work on the alaskan pipeline way back in the 70s. Both were based at ft mcmurray. My older brother went on to great success, and now lives in boulder co, the younger one got home sick and came home, then realised what he was missing, and tried to go back. he had a stop in hawaii and spent too much money, so canada wouldn't let him in, so he ended up in sf where he stayed for about 5 years. He was married in that city hall and lived in a hotel on market st
