What a great day! It was an all around great day. The weather was sunny and warm. We started out at Warner Brothers. What a great tour. Thank you Wendy and Kevin for telling us to do it. We really liked it. Now, we are all movie and theater people so we really enjoyed seeing where movies we love are made, costumes, sets and the hope of seeing someone famous. Which we didn’t. It is a tour on trams but we also got off and went into prop buildings and costume displays. Super cool. We saw movie and tv sets that would blow you mind to think they were filmed there. I am so glad we did this tour. The boys got their super hero stuff and Biddy and I got our Friends and Ellen. We finished with a coffee at Central Perk.
For lunch, we HAD to stop at In and Out Burger. I tell you, the driving
and parking here is nuts. People do whatever they want. They will legit cut across lanes of traffic to turn and double park you to get a burger. Paul did a terrible parking job at In and Out only because he saw a people double parking people in the lot. He stuck our monster van way out so no one could park us in. We saw driving and parking like this all day. Craze. After lunch, we did a little sight seeing and star searching in Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive Baby. No stars. We passed a couple of restaurants from some of the shows I watch. Tom Tom and Pump. Pretty cool. Paul somehow remember the address of his uncle who lived in the hills of Beverly Hills so we drove up the winding roads to find it. We found it but it didn’t look the same as he remembered. Still fun to explore. After some exploring, we headed back to our hotel to freshen up before dinner at our friends house, in Pasadena.
After a quick stop at the hotel, we braved traffic to head to Pasadena to our friends, the Lanstra’s, house, Al and Emilie.
They live in a cool neighborhood in a cool house. They have movies filmed in their neighborhood all the time. The house across the street was a set to Cruel Intentions and a couple other movies and in the other direction, the show, Benson. They have movies filmed so often that the studios pay them just to park in front of their house. Emilie said it gets a little annoying. We had an awesome dinner with their family.. The kids swam a little and we caught up. Great time.
Ben drove us home. EEEk. Still not used to that. We don’t like to drive even with one glass of wine. He did great. I have to try not to be a back street driver. I cant help it. I am the momma. I worry. Cody is still with us until tomorrow.. It’s been great seeing him. I will have to hold the hug a second longer when I say goodbye. I hope to see him sooner than later. Now we are off to bed for our next adventure in LA and then to Vegas tomorrow.
