The purpose of this blog is not "beautiful photos" nor "ancestor photos," it is to share my "personal life" photos. Because "My Heritage is happening"... Hope you enjoy!

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breathe away anonymous

Swedish Girls at The Jelly Belly Factory

Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield, California

The girls never expected to go to the Jelly Belly Factory, especially since they never heard of a Jelly Belly. Now they plan to go home and search for them.

At the entrance was this Jelly Belly motorcycle.

The girls are ready for a tour. Rebecca, Nathalie, Josephine, Michaela and Hilma. Aren't they beautiful?

Princess Di, an Indian Chief….

…and a buffalo nickel, all made of Jelly Belly's.

Michaela and Hilma.

Shopping after our tour! Yes, we all purchased a bag of Belly Flops, and some of us even more.

Rebecca, Natahlie and Josephine  while we were waiting for the tour.

A collection of memorabilia from President Reagan who loved a Jelly Belly, or two.

 Some of he Jelly Belly vehicles. The girls loved the VW the best, but I didn't get a photo of that one.

Jelly Belly ~ the original jelly bean!

Juneau, Alaska ~ Mendenhall Glacier Through the Trees

I was really looking forward to seeing this Glacier, and I was not disappointed! We finally made it to the entrance.

Within viewing distance of this sign, you have this most gorgeous site of the Glacier!

I wanted a couple of photos looking through the trees.

There is a visitor center which shares more about the Glacier and a bit about the wildlife.

"A valley air-conditioned by Ice"…

…and, "Features in a Glacial Landscape," are a couple examples of information you will find inside.
