It’s a Zoo Out There…..

The excitement continued today with a trip to the L.A. Zoo. There are so many things I don’t like about California, but I love the City of Angels (minus traffic). This (above) is Roman excited to see the elephants. He could hardly contain himself. We had a great time looking at all the different animals and running through the Zoo. I think I got my daily workout in :). 

I am absolutely in love with monkeys. They always seem to be at the window when I am at the Zoo and the fact that you can communicate with them without even speaking (or so it seems) amazes me. 

Ahh the giraffes. They are always so pretty.

These two looked like they were in love.

These two look like they could be famous :)! Well, all in all it was a fabulous day with lots of things to see and new animals to learn. Roman behaved wonderfully and got a little alligator toy to take home. Pretty close to perfect if I do say so myself.

Post For a Long Weekend

This weekend was full of fun!  Sal and I started out on Olvera Street, CA yesterday. Basically it’s little Mexico.  The street isn’t that long but it’s full of history. The oldest house in Los Angeles is actually on Olvera Street. Apparently there is some movement to tear it down. I hope it doesn’t happen. I don’t understand why we have to tear down something so beautiful and historical to make room for something new. I took a ton of pictures but I’m only going to put up a few. Enjoy.

After Olvera Street we headed to our hotel and relaxed for a little bit before the USA vs Chile game. The game was at the Home Depot Stadium. The stadium was great! I don’t think that you could get a bad seat in there. The game was a ton of fun with USA and Chile tieing.  It went by so fast that I wanted it to keep going :). So far Hockey and Soccer are my favorite sports to watch live.

Since I don’t want to cheat, here’s a fast picture that I took of the sunset on the way home. It’s not anything special but I HAD to have a picture for today. I hope everyone’s weekend was as good as mine!
