On our way to LA!

Well of course we HAD to take a trip up the coast to LA while the kiddo's were here for a couple reasons really. I've never done the tourist-y thing in LA and while I had a couple of extra hands I thought it would be nice to see Hollywood Blvd. and do some shopping! :) We started off driving north to Laguna and then headed into Newport where Amanda and Chris had found this amazing little outdoor shopping mall. The shopping mall had some great shops but also had a carousel which Sophia had never been on before. Oh my goodness, I don't think I've ever seen Sophia so excited. Thanks to Amanda we got some great pictures of Sophia riding the horses so that we could send them to Chris and show Dada what a big, brave girl Sophia is! After some fun in the sun shopping and playing with Sophia we were off to Huntington Beach. We continued on to Santa Monica and finally to downtown LA where we parked and walked the strip! The best thing about LA was the quiet dinner we had at one of the local restauraunts. The quiet was a nice break from the dirty and incredibly crowded Sunset Blvd. We ate at what looked like a sports bar from the outside but to our suprise everything inside was kid friendly and very cool. Everything was done by touch screen from ordering to paying AND there were also games to play while we were waiting for our food. Needless to say Sophia enjoyed the atmosphere and we all had a nice dinner before we headed back home! Overall, a fantastic day sightseeing in beautiful California with great company!
