From Hot to Cold

We got back last night.  Detroit is a terrible airport.  We spent more time there than we wanted.  We got in at the farthest gate on A and had to go to the farthest opposite point at the end of B concourse.  But they sent us on a wild goose chase by posting the wrong gate number for our flight home.  ARGH.  Then there was no plane, then no crew, then de-icing.  We left for the airport in LA that morning ( where it was 80 degrees) at 8:15 a.m. and finally got home at 11:30 p.m.  (where is was 9 degrees and a -4 wind chill).  What a change!
It was wonderful to see Claire and hold her.  She is such a fun baby.  We could really see her personality.
I got to see her in the dress that I made.  And it really fit her - I was thrilled.  She is sooo close to taking her first step.
We stayed at a great place and this was the view from our balcony:

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific (along with a million school children).  It was fun to see all the exhibits and Claire enjoyed it too.
All the food was very good.  (Note to self: start diet today!)
We celebrated Claire's first birthday.

What a great visit!
Now back to stitching.


  1. Claire is a little beauty isn't she. Congratulations Grandma.

  2. So cute so cute little angel!
    Your dress is looking so very pretty!

    So good for you to see your family and have quality time with them.
    Thanks for sharing these lovely photos.

    Have a lovely day with lots of stitching.
    Hugs from Anette & Skruttan
