spring break in california

On Tuesday we went to L.A. for some california sun fun!

On the plane ride, we kept ourselves entertained by making a chinese pagoda out of a dollar bill.
We arrived at LAX...
and went straight to Menchie's for some frozen yogurt... and for some celeb spotting!
There, behind me, is Jermaine Jackson (aka Mohammad Abdul Aziz) ?? say what wikipedia?
we headed over to Devin's dad's house, where Bob gave dev a tutorial about working the hot tub.
Then we went to Marmalade for some yummy dinner! 
I got to meet some more members of the Rigg clan: Betsy and Nancy Rigg. (cousins of Bob)
The next day we went to the mall...I had a salad that changed my life... and then we went to see the Dodgers. But first we had to make a stop at Menchie's for some more yogurt! No celebs this time :(
It was a little chilly, but baseball games are just the best. I barely even noticed how cold it was!
Gorgeous night!

The best part of the night was when they showcased the Dodger organist: Nancy Bea. They showed her on the big screens playing the organ in her little box up above the stands. So cute!
The following day we went to Yoga (i'm so sore)... and then to Corner Bakery for oatmeal that changed my life (i just really love food apparently)... and then to Universal Studios!

We went on the coolest tour to see all of the movie sets! 
We drove past where they filmed War of the Worlds. 
This is where they filmed the plane that crashed in it. They bought a real 747 plane for $60,000 and then it cost them $200,000 to transport it to Universal Studios to film. Crazy! 
This is Who-ville where they filmed the Grinch. 
Where they film Desperate Housewives. I've never seen it. but it was a cool street and looked just like a real neighborhood!
After our cool little tour, Dev made me go on the Jurassic Park ride. It was a fairly cold day, but we decided to go on it anyway and risk getting wet. 
We got DRENCHED! I'm not just talking about a little bit of water here and there. We were totally soaked. And we were the only 2 in our whole boat that were wet. 

After that, we drove down to Santa Monica and walked around. There was a saxophone man playing in the street and I fell in love! (with his music, that is.) Then we met Bob at the Cheesecake Factory where I had another salad that changed my life :)

And then we came home today. and lived happily ever after!

  1. I'm always so jealous when you guys get to go see Bob in LA. Makes me miss living so close to him!! Looks like you had a blast and I must say you are looking super hot in that first pic of you with your black T and windblown hair. I'm sure all your little 6th graders are just smitten ; )
