Sometimes friends come to visit.

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.

It makes for a pretty picture, doesn't it? Don't worry, I brought it home and washed all the Malibu Sand Off The Moon Over WV Mountains. scam said...

We had a similar kit, and I found the process hard to photograph. Even the butterflies had to be urged to open their wings and look pretty for the camera.
