LA Story ~ City Walk

At the beginning of summer I had this super awesome idea that I would go to all the great places in LA and post them up there.  I mean, LA is kinda a cool place.  There is so much to see.  But with the reality that is life we didn’t make it out to too many places.  But a few weeks ago our friends were out here visiting from Washington and they were heading out there so I decided that the boys and I would join the fun!  (Daddy was working, boo)

Here are some pictures from the night and a look at Universal City Walk for those of you who have never been.  It is quite a fun place too, even with the kiddos. 

As you walk in there is this great Brazilian spot and they have these dancers come out and dance for a bit.  It was awesome.  They are so talented.  I would love to learn to dance like that!! Just move to the music so perfectly. 
As we were walking the strip, there were a few street performers.  It is always fun to stop and watch, specially with the kids.  We watched a dancer for a bit then we came to this guy.  He was kinda funny, but you know, a little over the kids’ heads.  Tae got to help out a bit.  I felt a bit bad because if you know my 4-year-old you know he most certainly does not look like a 4-year-old.  So the guy is talking to him like he should know things that he doesn’t.  I just shouldn’t let him volunteer for things like this…  But Joclin and I (the other guy in the picture) got to be the helpers.  Cute backpack Joc.

Then we came to the water fountain.  And let me just tell you.  I am not the kinda mom who lets their kids run around in the water at City Walk wit no back up clothes.  I am too much of a control freak.  But when you are with people who know how to let go a little better than you do, you just let go.  I am glad that I can let my kiddos do something a little crazy every once in a while.  But this most certainly won’t be a regular thing. 

You didn’t know??  King Kong takes over City Walk!!!  Or is it Godzilla?  What is the difference anyway?

Good friends.  Joclin is from the Bahamas and Nikki is from Washington.  They basically have the same relationship as Lavar and I but a few years ahead of us.  And more kids.  But seriously, LOVE THEM.  We go way back.

And just some other pics of the strip.  It is a fun place to go if you are in Southern California.  Actually, now that I am sitting here thinking about it, Lavar and I went here for our first date 10 years ago.  Who knew we would go through what we went through and would be where we are??  Crazy, crazy road, but gosh darn it, I wouldn’t do it with anyone else.  Love ya, man!  {miss you too…}

    You were right by where I live when you were at Universal City Walk…too fun! I am glad you had a great time, and LA does have a lot to offer, but just as you said getting out to all of it doesn't always happen! Great pictures!

    That looks like a fun place. I've never been to LA, only San Francisco. Thanks for sharing the pictures so I can see what I'm missing. hehehe (I noticed the girly backpack on your friend, too. He must be secure in his masculinity. That's what we always say when my hubby does something like that.)
