Hawaii yesterday, San Francisco today and Denver tomorrow

Hi Yall, the vacation is going great. We are in San Francisco with my little sister now and it is a lovely city. Hawaii was wonderful. We stayed at Bellows Air Force Base. If you are military and want to go to Hawaii and don't want to spend a fortune check it out. We stayed in one of their no-frills beach cabins and it was perfect. Ethan (our 5 year old) got stung by a very big Man of War jellyfish within 45 seconds of hopping in the surf....it's tentacles were wrapped around his legs and ankles stinging the heck out of him. Aside from that everything was uphill. I have some good pictures, but I can't upload them yet.

I am impressed with the family potties in Australian airports. What a great idea to corral your young while you all go pee. Apparently the US doesn't think this is such a great idea yet....maybe I should fill out a comment card.

I am getting some great bag ideas during this trip. I think I want to make a big quilted duffel bag. I have seen several and I just love them. I have a big trip planned to go to my other sister's fabric shop (she is an interior designer in Charlotte, NC and has the hook up at the Schumacher mill) so I will be adding a bit more fabric to my collection. I have some linens in mind...maybe some upholstery velvets.

I also need to figure out how to accept donations to my Hero Bag and Quilt cause. I don't know if I have ever put a real number on how much of your Camp Follower Bag and Quilt purchase goes towards the Hero side of the business. I would say it is about 60%. So 60% of your "Stu tote" bag (or whichever bag you order) goes towards purchasing materials for my Hero bag and quilt cause.

OK Laura is mad that I am blogging instead of chatting, I just wanted to let you know all is well, and my mind is being soooo inspired. Ohhh great things are coming!

Cheers!
Tia

Hey Tia, I got the bags and they are WONDERFUL!! I'm thrilled. I hope your vacation continues to go brilliantly.

Ok - here's the 411 on family potties. Many airports in the US do have them. I was just in SeaTac and they've got them. Orange County has them too. I know there are others that have the family potty thing happening as well - but it isn't universal.

Have FUN

You are in my old neck of the woods. I am from Santa Cruz, less then 2 hours from San Fran. Tell the mountains and trees *hi* for me. I miss them. Texas is to flat and the trees are to short.

Most of the malls, and bigger venues around here have the family potties, definitely seatac and the portland airport...good ideas spread.

I have noticed LOTS Of family potties lately! Even in THEATERS! I think it's a wonderful idea.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!!!

Hey Girly,

So glad to read that you are having a good vacation. Isn't Bellow beautiful? We used to go there for sunrise breakfast and then body board. Of course that was back in the day....

We are now safe and sound in VA. Living out of a suitcase for another 30 days.

Enjoy you holiday!
