16th August: The Children and I went to Hollywood! I didn't realise I'd be able to see the lettering from Hollywood and Highland, that was a bonus :) And I photographed LOTS of stars along the Walk of Fame - I'm planning a layout with many mini prints, if printing them at that size allows me to still read the names! We also trekked out to the Hollywood Forever cemetary, getting lost and hot and tired along the way - poor kids......

Detail: Stars

Although quite interesting, I have to say that your report on the Hollywood trip isn't a patch on the children's one :)

Looks like you are having a fabulous time.

I'm not sure you are going to have time to go back to work in September Mel, you're going to have far too much scrapbooking to do ;-)

I'm loving all these posts from America, you seem to be having so much fun - you won't want to come back! One question, when you say you're going to all these places, are you driving while you're over there? or getting trains/buses? xx

:o) So fun to see a happy photo of your children with The Simpson's sign. I was very impressed with The Tomboy's drawing of Bart while we were visiting, and the way she counted the points on the top of his head as she sketched to make sure she had the right amount.

I agree with th'other Deb...you have so much to scrapbook you really don't have time to go back to work! ;o)

Deb and Deb - I shall tell the Head that you both said I should take September off to scrapbook ;)

Rhona - our trip to Hollywood was by Metro, as was our journey to Downtown and the Natural History Museum a few days before.

I've also been very fortunate to have been driven to a couple of locations by a blog friend who lives out here and has very kindly shown me round a few of her favourite places.

I have got braver with the driving though, so I've managed to drive to quite a few places myself now!
