Left Claudia to fend for herself in Downtown Disney. She was going to do a bit more shopping, maybe chill out at the pool and then go visit Auntie Hey.
Drove to Playa Del Rey to visit Los Angeles Shoji's - Aaron, Aly, Luc(5) and London (3). Kidlets played a bit of tennis with Aaron. Luc and Kyle went back to the condo to play wii games. Alani & London played in the pool. The rest of us chatted while we chilled by the pool. Surprised Aaron's mom, Ellen when we were leaving and she was arriving *g*.
Dinner in Redondo Beach with cousins Scotty & Laurie at some J-place. Conversation was wonderful, food was so-so. Haven't had a chance to talk to Scotty much, so it was all good. Growing up, we spent a lot of time with Scotty, his sibs, Joanne & Ricky, and Auntie Mako & Uncle Joe. Auntie Mako was Mom's next older sister and they were only a year or so apart in age.
Thursday, we visited with Kim and her kids - Maddy (6), Lizzie (4) and Joe (2). Had a chance to visit with Pam, Kim's Mom too. Alani and the girls had a great time - much sadness when it was time to leave. Kyle spent part of the time playing with his legos. (girl stuff got a bit overwhelming...)
Took Lorie out to dinner - Marie Calendar's cuz everybody wanted pie.
Friday, packed up the car for the final time. On the road by 10am. Lunch at the IHOP in Stockdale. Home by 5pm.
