Cali Trip: Day 1

Phil and I started our marathon trip out west by driving to LA to visit my cousin, Karen, her husband, Chris, and their three kids: Ben, Katie and Charlotte.  We flew into Vegas Sunday night, rented a car and drove 4 hours through the desert to LA, where we arrived at 2 AM (around 5 AM our time).  The next day, after some much needed zzz's, the kids gave us a tour of some of the local beaches.
And, per Phil's request, we hit up IN and OUT burger pretty hard on the way home.  Thank goodness we were there with pros... for those of you who don't know, there is a "hidden menu."  A double-double animal style is the way to go!  YUMMM!  Phil liked it so much, he even bought a shirt to remember his first In & Out experience!

In the late afternoon we went to watch Charlotte's swim lesson at a family friend's pool (I must say, swimming runs in the family, because I do believe Charlotte is a butterfly pro at age 6!).   We followed pool time with REALLY yummy pulled pork prepared by Chris.   And, somehow, we landed some free dodgers tickets.  An impromptu decision was made and we spent the rest of the night at Dodger stadium... When in Rome!  I was pretty stuffed, but Phil even managed to fit in a dodger dog and beer or two...

Pretty good day in LA!
