The Trip

Mama and I flew out to Pasadena, CA this past weekend.  We had a definite destination in mind ~ Fuller Seminary prospective students weekend. 


More on that later…

Anyway, we left Chicago early Thursday morning, getting into Burbank mid-afternoon.  Mama had rented a regular car, but it wasn’t ready yet, so we got a snazzy upgrade to this monster…


We had reservations to stay at the guest center on campus, so we headed right over, got settled in the room then went out to walk around campus.  It was really lovely… sunshine, green grass, blooming flowers.  Oh, the things we learn to live without in this frozen tundra!

I sat in on a class Thursday night from 6:30 – 9:30, which was 8:30 – 11:30 in Chicago, and I had been up since 5am!  I was so afraid I would fall asleep.  What an impression that would make!

We had Friday morning free, so we went out for a little sight-seeing.  This was the first time to CA for both of us, so we wanted to take in all we could in the few free hours we had ~ Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Rodeo Drive, Santa Monica Beach…

"Welcome to Hollywood!  What's yo dream?  Everybody's got a dream... it's Hollywood!"

“Welcome to Hollywood!  What’s yo dream?  Everybody’s got a dream… it’s Hollywood!”  (Name that movie for 2 points.)

 Friday night and all day Saturday we were at events at Fuller.  It was definitely a successful trip.  I made some great connections with both faculty and students.  Unfortunately we didn’t get many pictures of the campus.  I forgot to put the memory card back in mama’s camera, so she had it, but couldn’t take any pictures.  Oh, well… there’s always next time 😉

You can look at all the pictures here if you’re interested.
