Our Trip

1. Flew into Los Angeles on Friday evening
2. Our friends Mark and Kara came to pick us up from the airport and we listened to the Cardinals win to advance in the postseason!
3. Late supper at Umami Burger then drove into Pasadena
4. The next morning, we had breakfast at Burgers and Donuts, which is weird, but the donuts were delicious.
5. We went to the Pasadena Farmer's Market and bought some goodies, including this sundried tomato pistachio pesto that I think is the best thing I have ever eaten.
6. We went over to Fuller Seminary to see where Mark works.
7. After a rest stop at their apartment, we walked around downtown Pasadena and did a little shopping. All I bought were things for the kids at American Apparel- a purple tank and blue dress for W and a gray cardigan for R.
8. Lunch at Barney's Beanery. I had a veggie club sandwich and sweet potato fries.
9. We spent the afternoon at Mark & Kara's watching the Razorbacks and Michigan games. Two wins for our teams!
10. We had a late supper at Tarantino's, a hole-in-the-wall pizza place.
11. Back to their house for board games
12. Sunday morning, we drove to BEAUTIFUL Sierra Madre for brunch at Mary's Market and some exceptionally good live music. I had a cinnamon biscuit and a veggie and egg on a bagel.
13. We walked around the mountain towns narrow and winding streets for awhile, admiring the interesting houses.
14. After leaving the mountains, we did a driving tour of Hollywood and Beverly Hills and stopped in Beverly Hills for Sprinkles cupcakes (chocolate coconut) and a walk down Rodeo Drive.
15. Back to Pasadena for some resting and to watch my old friend Bryce win his first PGA tournament!
16. Dinner and margaritas and mariachi at El Portal
17. For dessert, we met up with our friends the Garcias and the Cables at a fro-yo place.
18. On Monday morning we slept in, then headed to LAX for our flight to Little Rock to pick up our babies!
