Out and About

The weather cleared up

so we decided to go to Downtown Los Angeles.

This included the tiled streets of Olvera Street where

there is so much to take in.

I couldn’t resist buying Olivne her first set of bangles.

Then we saw the famous one man band,

where he dedicated a song to Paul and Henry

and I found a brand new (to me) macaroon shop in Little Tokyo

with flavors like pistachio, rose, and salted caramel.

We spent some time wandering through the Japanese American Museum.

Then without naps we headed straight to Elijah’s second birthday party

On our way home, with kids passed out from the hours spent in the jumpy house

we swung by our local coffee shop where my co-worker mentioned the ice cream sandwich truck would be.

She was totally right and it was totally the same guys making cookie sandwiches at the party two weeks ago.

The we got home and opened these leftovers. We love free! Hope you are having an amazing weekend.
