Friends, the beach, camping=heaven

The group
(br: Trent, Erika, Alison, Todd, Emily, Heidi, fr: Mike, Me, Dan, Hafid)

I love road trips and all that comes with it---lack of sleep craziness, great conversation, girl talk, not having to check work email. Really the list could go on and on. Add to it camping and the beach and it's the formula for brilliant adventure.

Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Walk of stars, street performances,
Hollywood sign, Kodak theatre, crazy people

Madam Tussards Wax Museum
uncanny likeness (mostly), grown ups playing dress-up, short movie stars

Miceli's Italian Restaurant
oldest Italian restaurant, fabulous pizza, Italian kitsch decor, "slices the size of a dinner plate"

Aneheim Angels vs. Kansas City Royals
first professional baseball game, nosebleed seats, rally monkey, AA broke seven game losing streak, beautiful weather

Taio Cruz Concert
actually knowing who Tai Cruz was, lack of sleep crazy dancing, cell phone picture

feet in the sand, waves crashing, sand castles, football, freezing water,
SUN, book reading, sea shell gathering, gorgeous sunsets, happiness

fire, marshmellow roasting, ocean cooked corn on the cob, our adopted pet aka the shunk, butchering campfire songs, good food, youtube video discussions, perfect summer activity

Steph, I didn't realize you were that close or I would have arranged to see you. :(

Rachel Eddington said...

What fun! It reminds me of the trip we took a couple of years ago.

Amanda and Chase England said...

You have such an exciting life! I love your adventures, I live vicariously through you:)

Meg said...

Ames, this looks like it was a blast. It's fun to see all of those people together. There are several "generations" of Turnberry folks there. FUN!
