My Overall Rating of Southern California

The Examiner reviewed Bible Girl & the Bad Boy! You can read that review HERE.

With our big signing in only a couple of days, Cade and I are getting pretty excited.  We'll perform and sign at the Orange County Children's Book Festival near the main entrance, on the way to the Storyteller Stage.  For more info about this upcoming Sunday's event, please visit this LINK.

   So, while we're getting ready, I thought I'd show you some fun pictures from our trip.

At first the Zombie Elf didn't know what to think of Knott's Berry Farm. 
Hippie, Dr. Jones, Zombie, Scribe

The Hippie (in the back) looked peaceful while Dr. Jones held her hands up--
again . . .

and again--I think her arms got tired!

The Zombie finally started enjoying himself, then he didn't want to leave.

Yesterday we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific.
 The kids got to pet stingrays,


 and even jellyfish!
Then last night we ate at Medieval Times.
This is the knight we rooted for:

So, my rating of Southern California is 5 out of 5 stars!  What a blast.  We're going whale watching again today--I can hardly wait.

I hope all of you are having a great day!


  1. Wow, looks like an awesome trip indeed.

  2. Dear Elisa, I'm so glad you posted these photographs for all of us to see! And speaking of seeing--it's so easy to see why you give southern California a 5-star rating! The kids certainly are over the moon about all that's happening. I'm glad that Zombie Elf is enjoying himself and getting to see those sharks. And Dr. Jones was probably seeing all those other people raise their arms and decided that the way to be at Knotts' was to go around with raised arms!!!!! Who knows--she may turn into the fairy godmother whose wand arm is always raised to shower gifts and blessings on others. Peace.

  3. Your family is adorable--& you can tell Cade I include you & him in that description!

  4. I never thought of it before, because I don't have kids, I guess, but Southern California is truly a child's paradise with all the activities, amusement parks, aquariums, and then the beaches and ocean to top it off. It's so wonderful to see you guys enjoying it all so much. I love Dee's thoughts on Dr. Jones's raised arm, spreading fairy dust and blessings.

  5. Oh my gosh, you guys have the cutest kids ever...don't tell mine I said that. Have a great time!

  6. You guys look like you are having a blast! I'm so glad you got to do this. (Even if I am a little jealous. LOL) Love you guys come back safe.

  7. My favorite photo is the one at the aquarium because I can see your reflection in the glass and you look so happy.


  8. Looks like an absolutely wonderful time was had by all!! :):)

  9. It looks like you had an awesome time! Fun pics!

  10. Sounds like you guys are making the most of the trip. Good for you! Nothing like some good memories to bring back home.

  11. These pictures made me laugh. They are all just so adorable. Just read the review. That was awesome! Congratulations and am really happy to see all of your hard work paying off.
