Don't ever let it be said that the VanHorns are boring. Our friends from West Virginia, Pat and Jen and their boy Sam came to visit us this week - Monday night through Friday morning. This is what we did:
Tuesday morning I took them on the old zoo trail at Griffith Park. See the monkeys?
That ends up near the playground:
Later we met up with Erik (he had to go to work) and went to the Getty. Did you know there's a spa there? It's gross, they smear tomato sauce all over you and do all sorts of basil and oregano facials.
Get it? Spa Getty? Spaghetti? I wonder if I'm the first person to make that joke up. Jen fell for it for a little while. Erik didn't fall for it because I was giggling too much when I told him.
Aaaanyway, here are pictures of the interactive art area for kids:we made masks:
Sage wrote me a sweet note.Then, since we were in the neighborhood, we took them to Santa Monica Pier:
Wednesday! Grauman's Chinese Theater:
Hollywood and Highland:
and Roscoe's Chicken n Waffles.
Home, rest, wait for Erik to come home, then:
Home, hang out, sleep, wake up, then:
Malibu. . .
then the batteries died. And now they're gone. Suffice it to say it's nice seeing old friends again and I hope we do it again sometime.
