We arrived in cali on friday and had veau pick us up at the car shipping place in long beach. It was good to see veau and emily. They took us to sunset blvd for dinner to some trendy hotel. It was cool, it was called the standard. We stayed at veaus friday nite and then my parents came and got us on saturday night. We went down to newport beach for dinner and took the ferry to balboa island and walked around as the sunset. It was so pretty. The next day we went to saddle back, that place is crazy. now thats a mega church. For lunch we went down to laugna beach and walked around. california is beautiful but i cant really stand the attitude of everyone. Its just way to much about an image. It was great to be able to spend some time with my parents before we had to leave. We went and saw pirates of the carribean at disney on sunday nite. I was confused the whole movie and so was kev. Our flights and everything went smoothly except for the fact that I forgot that my back pack had been used to carry art supplies all school year and didnt carefully check all pockets for things you cant take on airplanes. Which I found out by a security guard having to tear apart my bag and finding a 4 inch pair of scissors. I freaked out and started crying, they guy yelled at me cause he told me not to touch my bag and i of course did without thinking, I was trying to help him. ughhh anyways it turned out ok. funny now of course. The plane movie was of course 8 below again.
