Snapshots of Los Angeles

Night 1 - Went out to dinner at Prado in Larchmont with my aunt, uncle, cousins, significant others, and their kids...unfortunately no photos.

Day 2 - Disneyland! Took my fiance to the "happiest place on earth," (he'd never been!). We did all my faves: Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mt. Railroad, It's A Small World, Materhorn, and beyond...
Night 2 - Dinner and drinks with my fiance, my sister, her bf, and my friend Lindsay at Katie's fave Mexican joint, El Carmen - known for its super spicy jalapeno margaritas, and man were they spicy!
Day 3 - Visited my sister at on the Fox/Fx lot where she works. What a cool job, huh? Unfortunately didn't see anyone famous (just my luck) but did get to tour the lot and some impressive fake facades where they film shows like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Modern Family.
Night 3 - Sushi happy hour at La Grande Orange in Santa Monica, followed by a night out on the town in Santa Monica with a big group of friends (unfortunately didn't get a group shot). We ended up at a chill bar on Main Street, drank some vino, and had a fun time.
Last day - Went on a bike ride with my sister through the Venice Beach canals while the boys went surfing. My fiance's first time surfing!
Doesn't he look like a pro in the wetsuit?
All in all a great trip, and a perfect way to escape the rainy cold (and snow) that was happening in Seattle. Can't wait to visit again!

Whoa! Small world - I went to high school with Lindsay! (I'm having deja vu...perhaps I've had this revelation before?)

Cute! Brett and I were just there last month and I'm already wishing we could go back. It's fun to be kids sometimes ;)

I miss Larchmont! My wife and I used to live right by there. Now with a baby on the way, we think about going back sometimes.
