Better than Lemon Meringue Pie!

The day after Dyllan's head injury was my Birthday, so we went to
Hollywood for the Ripley's Odditorium.
This sound machine was great...one sounded like
a real horse was galloping right across the ceiling!
There was lots of odd things to see and I was very surprised and delighted to see this!
Some of the things were really gross, but the rest was mostly interesting.
A first for all of us to attend this place!
Afterwards we walked up and down the strip and decided to have lunch
at the Disney Soda Fountain.
The decor inside was neat inside

and while having lunch I enjoyed watching the soda jerks make the
different ice cream sundaes and fountain treats!

I wore one of my Tiara's I made!
If you have been watching American Idol...this is the actual Theater they are in!
And here is the Chinese Grauman Theater
There were so many people there!
Some were for the weird people and some were for the famous hand/foot prints
like this one of Doris Day.
and then there were of course the stars... :)

While we were walking along...a clown shoved a balloon sword in Dyllan's hand
and said, "You like that?" "Which of course Dyllan did.
And then the clown turns to me and asks for $1.
The nerve...
But I gave him $2 just because,
and the guy gave Dyllan and extra (free) sword.
When we went to sit down...the balloon holster and puppy hat
tumbled right into Dyllan's lap from out of nowhere.
So here he is sporting it all with his red hat (protecting his head injury from germs)
Alice in Wonderland is coming to the El Capitan in 3D
on March 5th...anyone want to go with me?
I've only been there once before for the opening of Aladdin.
It is Sooo much fun!
To promote the Wax Museum..they had Marilyn out for the public to see...
She looks so real!

I wore my Tiara all day and even when we got home from Hollywood,
I wore it when I went by myself to Barnes and Noble.
In the 3 hours I was there browsing magazines and books...no said anything.
Either they thought I was nutsy or maybe a Princess! lol!
When I got home from the book store,
Brian and Dyllan sang Happy Birthday to me
with Strawberries and whip cream!

Here are 2 things I treated myself to at the book store!

Dyllan made this Birthday Crown for me.
It was his idea. We made it on Thursday.
I did was the cutting of the crown and stars.
He colored with crayons, printed the words and added the stickles!
I will always cherish this crown...
So precious!
Even the stars are perfect!
The next Day I made my own cake. Why?
Cause I wanted it to taste good...and plus, once you've tasted homemade...
store bought or from a box just does not compare!
I made a triple lemon cake and it was well worth the effort!
It tasted (hands down) better than lemon Meringue Pie!
If anyone wants the recipe, e-mail me your mailing address and I'll send you a copy!
Why snail mail? Because It's becoming a lost art and I want to keep the tradition alive...plus everyone loves happy mail...don't you?
Can't you just taste the home made lemon curd filling? So tart and tasty!

I'll post the rest of the weekend next....
