From The Children

Dear Blog Readers,

On Tuesday Mum made us walk for miles and miles round Hollywood! And all so she could take about five hundred photos of the pavement. Some of the photos we didn't mind so much:



but most of them were people we'd never even heard of!



Even worse, she also wanted to take loads of photos of people's hand and footprints in the ground!



And she got all excited just because she could see some giant letters on a hillside a long way away.


Luckily she bought us lunch at McDonald's and got us an ice cream later, so we decided to forgive her.

(Can you guess which of us had the psychedelic ice cream?!)

Love from

The Children

Sorry you had such a boring day while Mum photographed the same star over and over again (well not quite the same star) And yes The Tomboy had the multicoloured (Ican't spell sycodelic)one

Very sweet!What a lovely day your Mum had! :) One day you'll look back at her photos and know who those people were! X

What long suffering The Children you are! Tell your mum I got excited when I saw the Hollywood sign for the 1st time, as well

I suspect The Tomboy had the psychedelic ice cream to go with her vibrant personality. Lovely post from the mini Melshes.

Ah, it's worth the walking to see the Stars though! Isn't it?

I can totally understand why you would find a bunch of stars boring. But hey, at least you got McDonald's out of it! Tell Mum to take you to Universal Studios - infinitely better use of a day!

Oh you poor babies, sad to tell you that my boys are now 19 and 23 and have to suffer through such days with their Mama ;) I am glad ya'll are having such a great American experience. I think someday your parents should bring you back to the States for the East Coast...NC offers the best beaches AND gorgeous mountains (and has plenty of universities for you dad)!

Great post...bet the MacDonalds helped make up for your trials with mum! Sounds like you've been having a great time

My children sympathize with you wholeheartedly. Especially if she made you pose for photos every 5 seconds along the way

Gail said...

Oh what a day you had - too bad about all that walking to look at the pavement. Has your Mum heard about Legoland, Sea World & the San Diego Zoo? You might want to show her around those places.

Hmmm, it seems that ice cream treats will soothe the savage beasts/mini Melshes for enduring these strange excursions to see stars in the sidewalks, hand prints in cement and big letters spelling "HOLLYWOOD" from afar ;)

Cheri might have a idea to visit Universal Studios though!

Great Post you, kidlets. Hey, Mel I think you need to get them their own blogs.

Glad to see you made it to Hollywood and see the sights.
