We went exploring saturday...
We headed into holloywood down hollywood blvd, totally reminded us of east hastings at hollywood and vine. Pictures sure can be decieving!!! Down a couple more blocks there is a tourist mall wich looks quite nice, but it sure wasn't what we were thinking the area would look like. From there we headed by melrose then rodeo drive. We had some totally different expectations, it was nicer than hollywood bvld for sure but it sure is amazing what the movies make out of not too much. Rodeo drive was a very expensive looking block and a half, we followed a brand new white Bentley car but I had sure thought there would be much more too it. We ended up checking out the mall there in Beverly hills. I thought it was kind of funny that there 4 levels of parking are above ground, and the 2 levels of mall are above the parking. It was a nice looking mall, but I think the "glamour" the big screen makes of the area has been crushed for us.
From there we headed back to universal for 2 hours so B could see a couple things he had wanted to see, here is the carnage from one of Tom Hanks(i think)plane crash movies. A real boeing 747 was used for this prop which is actually much bigger. We headed down wysteria lane after and saw the sets of desperate houswives and a whole bunch more. We were not able to see the sets of CSI apparently they were filming and I guess its good so it doesn't wreck it for me!! And from here headed back to the hotel in bumper to bumper traffic for a couple more hours. We had been promising the kids we'd be home early for some pool time, well not so early we headed to the pool at 9pm but they all had fun. B would have been happy to stay a couple hours but we will have to give him some more time this week. Baby I was with me in the pool, she has soo much fun and just splashes and splashes which is great unless you are holding her!!!
It was a real eye opener kind of day, but still a fun day. Stel said it was a very Interesting and strange day at the same time.....
