Lielle Meital waiting for her baggage in LAX.
Seraphic Secret spent time in Yosemite and not long afterwards, Offspring #2 and family arrived in Los Angeles for a two-week vacation. Activities included a wedding at the Terranea Resort, day trips to museums, playgrounds, and swimming in Casa Avrech’s cement pond.
Vacation time is almost over, but our memories will last a lifetime.
Terranea is a luxury resort by the sea. The wedding was held outside. It was a magical location. Up on the bluffs, there were dozens of hotel guests watching the Orthodox ceremony. As the music played and the wedding singers sang the traditional Jewish tunes, couples on the bluffs swayed to the music and hugged each other romantically.
Maayan Ariel was a flower girl at the wedding. She proudly poses in her white wedding shoes.
The fountain in Casa Avrech’s front patio is an enchanted spot for Lielle Meital (left) and Maayan Ariel.
Maayan is a budding fashionista. “Look, my Dora the Explorer socks!”
Lielle Meital stepped to the edge of the pool… and just plunged into the water. No fear. Naturally, her Daddy was there to catch her in his arms.
Maayan Ariel demonstrates the dance movements she has learned.

Lielle Meital struggled mightily to pull herself up and into one of the wicker chairs on the patio. As you can see, she is exhausted but mightily satisfied.
Maayan Ariel wants you to meet Giraffee, her constant companion since infancy.
Karen and I wish all our friends and relatives a lovely and inspirational Shabbat.
