"Phantom of the Opera" and American Girl
My daughter, Kimberly, and I had an incredible mini vacation last weekend in Pasadena. My sister, Kim Hillis, drove us straight to American Girl in Los Angeles, as this is one of Kimberly's favorite places. We looked at dolls and got the Kit Kittredge and Chrissa DVDs and had lunch at the restaurant there.
Our last night in Pasadena, we attended "Phantom of the Opera" at the Pantages Theatre. It was a wonderful production and Kimberly has been singing the songs ever since!
I got a great creative surge from this trip. Upon returning to Aptos, I painted two multi-figure oil paintings in one night which I will post soon (they're still wet in the studio).
