What are you reading?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We got back from California late last night. Had a great trip but unfortunately I left my good Nikon camera under the airplane seat on the way out there. Krista used her employee status to pull some strings and track down the plane in San Francisco. Thankfully they found the camera and are going to Fed Ex it to me. Larry had his little Kodak camera so I was able to take pictures.

We stayed at a really chic hotel in Beverly Hills called the SLS and did a little shopping on Rodeo Drive.

The USC football game was a lot of fun. Poor Traveler, the white horse that gallops down the sidelines after every touchdown, was exhausted :) Way to go Trojans!

We stopped in Manhattan Beach before going to the airport to have a quick lunch with Ryan before going home. My mom was sick so we didn't get to see her. Krista was flying, but she landed at the same time we were leaving, so she came over to our gate to see us for a few minutes. Gary was in Brentwood and couldn't make it to Manhattan Beach in time for lunch.

It was quite the whirlwind weekend trip.

I've never seen a yellow Rolls Royce before. This was on Rodeo Drive.
