Well, our 2nd stop on our trek to Texas was Los Angeles, CA. I know, I know, LA is not exactly on the way from San Jose to Texas, but the people waiting for us there were well worth the detour! We spent 2 nights with Regina, Chris, Caleb & Aidan. We had so much fun just hanging out with them. The boys are always a delight, and they keep me laughing the whole time I'm there. Although Caleb is not a fan of taking pictures (he would always hide when I pulled out the camera), I did convince him to pose for a few when he opened his Christmas presents!
We got there late in the evening on Tuesday, so I didn't want to get the boys riled up right before we went to bed by giving them presents. So, the presents sat in the floor of the living room for the night. The next day when Caleb got home from school, he looked at the presents then looked at me and said, "So...are you just gonna give those presents to us sometime while you're here, or..." So cute! He didn't want to just come out & tell me to give him the present (such a polite boy), but he was REALLY wanting to open them!
Both of the boys were in school on Wednesday morning, so Matt, Gina & I made a trip to Old Town & had breakfast at Panera. It was a relaxing day! When the boys got out of school, we all headed to Beverly Hills to see Chris' office & take a stroll on Rodeo Drive. The glitz and glamour of the stores was all you might imagine, but I'm sure the price tags would have made it much less appealing! After our stroll on Rodeo, we headed to Fat Burger for dinner. Wow! That place is delicious!
We really enjoyed our time in LA, and hope to get back out there sometime soon. We always enjoy playing with the boys & catching up with Chris & Gina! Not living close to them was the biggest reservation we had in moving away from California! Here are a few pics from our time in LA:
