But it has worked out nicely for this one YEAH!Stamps: Crazy for cupcakes & family phrases

Well, we are on our final leg of our journey (fingers crossed we get on tonights flight). It has been a great holiday, and our last two days in Hollywood have been our (mine & Gordos') shopping time (YEAH!). We are staying in the 'Kodak Theatre' complex, right next to the 'walk of stars' and 'Grossmans Chinese Theatre' with the hand & footprints of all the stars.
Here are some pics ...
Gotta love the weirdos .....
These characters hang out in front of 'Grossmans Chinese Theatre' for most of the day. There was also a Mickey Mouse, Spiderman, 1/2 a dozen Jack Sparrows, Tigger, Batman & Robin and Superman ...
And here is a look into Calum's future (he! he!), this bike is outside the 'Harley Davidson' shop at the 'City Walk' Universal Studios. Cool hey!
... anyway, I'm hoping that we might be able to squeeze some more shopping in today (I don't know how I am going to pack more stuff (we have purchased 7 pairs of runners ...), but I will try.

Well, we have had a busy week and this is our last day in San Diego. Here are some pitures for you ...
San Diego Zoo
This is an albino python (it was soooo HUGE! but an amazing colour)...
This was the hippo enclosure. They were swimming right next to the glass.
On Thursday, we went back to Seaworld. We were able to by fish in a tray and feed dolphins and seals. You could touch the dolphins as you were feeding them! How fantastic is that ... you can't really tell in the picture, but there are no barriers between you and the dolphins.
We went to the 'Shamu' show again ... and they had the baby performing ...
Check out this car ... it is a VW with a dorsal fin, tail and painted like a killer whale. How cool is this...
Anyway, I will be back later with photos from 'Legoland'.
