Uncle Dave

The reason we went to LA was to go to my Uncle Dave's funeral. He was quite the amazing guy. I sure loved him. So sad to lose him from cancer at only 59. It was a sad time, but nice to be surrounded by those who loved him, too.

Venice Beach and Santa Monica Beach

We walked along Venice Beach, visited muscle beach, and grabbed some yummy fish tacos. We had a great time playing in the surf and collecting shells in the LA sunshine.

Hannah wouldn't do the muscle arms in front of muscle beach
She did like a root beer float

$2 Fish and shrimp tacos. Yummy!

Fun times

Space Shuttle Endeavor and the Memorial Coliseum

The California Science Center is also home to the Space Shuttle Endeavor. The shuttle was magnificent!  It was great to see it with Grandpa and Hannah.

Its the space toilet. Better buckle in so you don't float away.
We watched a movie of the shuttle being transported through the streets of  LA.
We watched an IMAX film of the astronaut's life and views at the space station.
Those are some huge engines!
It was so awesome to see one in real life.

 Just outside the California Science Center is the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum home to 2 Olympic games, the USC Trojan football team,and now the LA Rams. 

So cool. Too bad no one was playing.
Then we stopped for some In -n Out on our way to Ojai, CA.
Happy Birthday Grandpa. We sure had a great time with you.We love you and miss you. Have a Happy Birthday.

Hannah is such a fast climber. She made it to the top in the blink of an eye.
