Callum’s school was closed for a week recently, so we decided to check out some more of California. We drove down to LA, where we went all the places one should go. . . and then we made our way slowly back North.

At the Chinese Theater – we took this picture for Grammy.  This is the best of 4 tries. . . C wasn’t really in a sitting still mood.

This one’s for Grandpa.  Live long and prosper.

Best picture of us with the Hollywood sign.  Sorry.

Callum and Andy walking along in Hollywood.  Callum brought his backpack along most places.

Pausing for refreshments in the Pueblo de Los Angeles neighborhood.  It was hot out!  “Let’s drink together, ok, Daddy?”

Callum riding on one of the sculptures in the children’s garden at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

Callum checking out the humungous elevator at LACMA.

Where should we go next?  We found a good planning bench outside of LACMA

Venice Beach.  It was hard to get a picture without “babes” in the background.

Callum looking very California. . .

The Getty Museum featured beautiful gardens.  We have lots of pictures of us holding Callum in front of pretty things like this.

Callum exploring the children’s section of the Getty.  We spent a long time playing with these tubes.

Trying to corale Callum for a picture with Daddy.  It was pretty fun to run around the central garden. . .

SO much fun.

Gravel and Crocs are a bad combination. . . one of many shoeless breaks.

We didn’t get many pictures of our visits to the Central Coast wineries, but the rest of our trip was beautiful and fun.  It was nice to get away together!
