LA Vacation - Day 2

We slept in this morning...it was wonderful! When you have little kids it's amazing what a treat sleep becomes! We got to stay up late and sleep in until 9am. It felt like half the day was over when we finally got up. After we did get going we went to "The Grove," which was a beautiful shopping/theatre area. We saw "Pirates of the Carribean." I liked it, but Tim didn't like it as well as the others. After the movie, we walked around and shopped. There was a Farmer's Market right next to The Grove so we went over there and ate lunch (Tim was a little worried that we would be sick, but we are fine...so far!) It was a cool place. We left and decided to check out more of LA. We drove up one of the canyon roads and found a cool lookout place. We hiked up about 1 mile (I was in heels, but it was worth it). It was gorgeous. We headed back down the canyon and drove around some more until it was time for our dinner reservation. Tim thinks we've spent most of the time driving. California traffic really is horrible, but it's an experience! We ate dinner at The Ivy (another suggestion from Lisa's friend.) It was a very charming restaurant. We were enjoying it so much I forgot to take pictures. Our dinner was delicious and the key lime pie was incredible! It was pricey, but it was worth it. The service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful.

Here we are at the lookout point.


You can't see most of the city because of all the smog.

You always look beautiful, and it sounds like you had a lot of fun. Next time Tim needs to "look natural" have him sing Gwen Stefani in his head. That will help.
