Los Angeles, California: Though Los Angeles is crowded, polluted and suffers from terrible traffic, there is so much to see and do in this vast metropolis. Nearly every time we visit, Lisa and Lenny take us to a new park, museum, restaurant, shop or exhibit.
Today we visited the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County - which, as far as I can figure, is practically on the USC campus, and next to the Los Angeles Coliseum - host to the 1932 and 1984 Olympics.
The Natural History Museum houses all sorts of dinosaur skeletons and a vast variety of taxidermified critters, most of which, you can only imagine, are of great interest to a two-year-old boy.
After exploring the museum, we had lunch at their on-site cafe, then took a stroll through their gardens before someone became very cranky and needed a nap. The museum building itself is just gorgeous - I highly recommend a visit the next time you find yourself in Los Angeles.

After a nap and a little wrasslin' with Bubba, we headed out to a nearby park.The playground had a massive sandbox Leo - looking at his Beloved Bubba - went down the slide about 20 times. Bubba went down the slide once... and Leo with his "hmmm, what can I wreak havoc on next?" look. Our Little Girl is still our Little Girl
As Mr. Buffett says... I'm growing older, but not up!Life is good, and life is fun - especially when you have a squealing toddler on your lap in a swing.
