Saturday In LA

Saturday , I went to LA with my parents and aunt! I woke up, got ready and as soon as my dad got home, off we went. 

We had lunch at WoodRanch BBQ and did a little shopping in Valencia beforehand, because we couldn't wait that long to eat. I couldn't believe that on our way down there it had actually snowed the night before. Mountains and the side of the highway was covered. It was a gorgeous day in LA; clear, sunny and a cool breeze was in the air. We went to The Wonder Years house/neighborhood to show my aunt, and it was a total Wonder Years type of day. I really wish I would've had my bike. Someday, if I ever live in LA, I'd like to live in that area, because it's like the kind of perfect neighborhood people only write about and you don't think can really exist. Well, it does. We still had time after that, so we went to Griffith Observatory, which is one of my favorite places to go. If I lived in the city, I would definitely be going there daily just to think and write. There are a lot of people, because it's a big tourist attraction, but it has one of the best views of the city. We walked through the planetarium a bit, and went out on the deck to check out the view. You could see all of the downtown buildings, out towards Santa Monica and even the Staples Center and Dodger Stadi

I felt like I was in a scene from The Hills...HAHAH. My mom just gave me a look like uh, yeah ok.

After Griffith, we headed over to Dodger Stadium. We have passes that can get us onto any level of the stadium now, so we thought we'd do some exploring around and see where our seats will be in a few weeks. We grabbed a pretzel and something to drink and decided we'd start heading up to our seats, but we ended up in one of the stores instead. Well, we decided we'd sit on that level until someone came to redeem them or they kicked us out...neither happened, so we had some really great seats. I had a blast hanging out with my family and of course the fact that the DODGERS WON! They are seriously on a roll right now, and I hope that doesn't jinx us.
I love when there's a proposal during the kiss cam, and that night there was. That's seriously how I want to be proposed to. There's just something that's so romantic about baseball, and being in the heart of LA. It's something cute! So, I guess whoever I marry better be a Dodger fan ;). One of my best friends said she's gonna talk to "the guy" (whoever he may be), someday when we start getting serious. I love her so much for that!

I love this app! 
My parents are silly!  :p LOL.

That night, after we got home, I was getting ready to go to bed when I got a text from Martin asking if I had Titanic, because they wanted to use it for church the next day. I did, so him and Derek stopped by to pick it up, which was cool :) Then, off to bed I went. It was a really wonderful day. 

That's all for now,
