Last Friday we headed out to LA. Much to Schmonkeys joy because according to The Phi Schmonkey has been wanting to go to LA for a long time. This is the same monkey that can take a trip to Mexico or New Orleans in half a day, but apparently has never been to LA. Weird monkey.
Anyways, our trip was out to LACMA to see the Tim Burton exhibit. The drive went well. Both girls are good travelers. Thanks goodness. When we got there we purchased our tickets for the exhibit and headed right over. Photos were not allowed inside the exhibit so all I got was a picture of the entrance. Which was of course very cool.
LACMA is favorite spot of mine. I love the area and the surroundings. And it brings back memories, I had my first kiss there in 7th grade! (Hi Matthew!). And I love how The Phi just soaks it all up.
When we got there, there were a bunch of lunch trucks lined up. But after we got out of the Burton exhibit most of them were gone. We managed to check out the remaining few.
And after being inspired with the art around her The Phi hit the kids section for some art of her own. After she finished Joey asked her "what's it called?". After she thought about it she said "Rainbow Hearts" and Joey says "Rainbow farts". That went on all day.
And of course what's a trip to LACMA without a stroll around the tar pits.
A Frida Kahlo. No joke people I feel her paintings. Like deep in my soul. The moment I set eyes on this up close I felt that lump in my throat just like when I went to the Frida Kahlo exhibit in San Fran.
After the museum we made a quick stop at The Fast Life, and the off to The Grove and Farmer's Market. I had never been there before and had always wanted to see what all the hub-bub was all about.
All in all it was a fantastic day with my beautiful family.
