I took my Nikon camera but decided to put the new iPhone camera to use and I used the Hipstamatic app for photos of the day. All random settings.
So here we go....
On the weekends you can buy a pass for $10.00 and ride the Metrolink all weekend long. Joey has always wanted to do this with the kids and it was a great idea! The train ride there was fun. It was more packed than we expected and finally got a good seat with a table for the last half of the ride.

We arrived at Union Station in Los Angeles. The Phi loves LA so she was super excited to be there.
|Our tiled table.|
And of course a trip to Olvera Street would not be complete without some taquitos with gucamole sauce. So good.
|My plate. Cheese enchiladas with 2 beef taquitos.|
We spent the next few hours wandering the shops. Our favorite thing to do.
|Much like the Clifford picture on Santa Monica pier. A man handed The Phi this flower made from a palm leaf and then asked Joey for a donation.|

|Still lots of skulls to buy.|
|Beautiful embroidered Mexican tops.|
|Cream filled churros from Mr. Churro and a Horchata latte.|

|Huraches for sale|
|I think my Pops needs this for his bathroom.|
|Such cute coffee mugs!|
After shopping and treating ourselves to churros, a horchata latte and some very good champurado we headed back to catch the 5:39 train.
One last bathroom break before boarding the train.
