My parents flew in from Seattle Saturday night and before we even drove home we made a pit-stop at The Hat. I was so not in the mood for a burger and fries though so I walked across the street and got some yummy Yogurtland. By the time we got home it was nighty-night time!
Sunday morning we hung around the house until church. Even Joey got in the "chillaxing" mood.
If my dad sits still longer than 5 minutes he falls asleep. Like so:
Chris was a super guy and made cinnamon rolls.
Grandma and Fox had some good laughs and giggles.
Fox has been a much happier boy with his grand'rents in town!
After sacrament we drove out to Thousand Oaks to see my Aunt Natalie play the mother in Cheaper by the Dozen. My cousins Cat and Daniel were nice enough to watch Fox while we were out.
We got front row seats! It's not what you know - it's who you know :)
The play was so great! I didn't know it was a real story and based on a book. I was expecting the movie! I liked this version better and Natalie was a star :) Afterwards we met her backstage (we had to flash some fancy passes - not really, but I imagined we did!) and I loved looking around at all the props, especially the dozens of old antique chairs dangling from the ceiling.
Back at the Taylor's we ate delicious BBQ for dinner then drove back home.
Today we saw and did it all! First we went on a hike to the Hollywood sign.
Back in the car I gave Fox some oreos. He looked like he'd been kissing a pig!
For lunch we drove over to West LA and ate at Fat Sal's. We've been hyping this place up for months now and my parents didn't even get a "Fat" sandwich. Wah wah.
I got the same thing I get everytime - The Fat Texas BBQ: bbq pastrami brisket with chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, bacon, sautéed onions, melted cheddar and mozzarella, fries, mayo, and honey bbq sauce, all on a garlic hero. And no the chicken fingers and fries aren't on the side - they're IN the sandwich! Soooo good.
We were all tired by then so we came home and took naps all around. Except Chris who doesn't nap... I was still fatigued so my parents took the metro into Union Station to walk around and see the sites while the Evans family stayed at home to recuperate more. When they came back we hopped in the car and drove to Galco's Soda Pop Stop.
We all chose two drinks and loved tasting them all.
Now we're home and watching the premier of Alcatraz!
So far so good. The music is IDENTICAL to LOST. And Fringe. That J.J. Abrams likes one kind of music and one kind of music only!
