Day in LA

 After our fun day at Universal Studios we spent the next day seeing the sights of Los Angeles.  The teenage daughters have been asking us to take them there so this was their day!  There was a little bit of everything for everyone in LA!

First a stop for spiritual enrichment at the LA Temple.  This is where Ryan and I were married 20 years ago!

 Then we went for a walk down Hollywood Boulevard to see Mann's Chinese Theater and lots of stars and weirdos!

Here is where Meredith found "her" star!!

Mackenzie found a new occupation!

Madalyn loves the show "Fashion Police"

Then onto Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills

We fulfilled our sweet tooth with ice cream from Sprinkles ice cream and cupcakes.  I like the cupcakes better.  The strawberry is super fresh and the red velvet is super yummy.  However the mint chocolate chip is not very good at all.  I hear their banana is really good, but they did not have it available when we were there.

We satisfied Trevor's love of cars by viewing this Buggati.  

An LA must for any teenage girl obesessed with the movie "500 Days of Summer".  Visit the bench where part of the movie was filmed.  This was on Mackenzie's "bucket list"...check!

The bench is located at Angels Park next to the Angels Flight.

Olvera Street was the next stop.  It was so hot that we did not enjoy it as much as we could have.  Trevor bought a mini guitar here and is loving it!  After being in LA he is now aspiring to play his guitar on the sidewalk for money.  His goal... $10 day!  We ate not at any recommended food place there because it was so hot.  Our only requirement was air conditioning!!  It was still yummy!

Next was Chinatown.  It was pretty dead....however we had fun checking out the hanging duck, paper lanterns and the mini turtles. 

It was a long, hot and fun day in LA!
