Hooray for Hollywood!

Scratch one off the old bucket list. For some reason, I have always wanted to go to Hollywood. Now maybe I have already been there, but I always have wanted to take my family there. Since we decided to take a vacation from our vacation, I thought that it would be fun to take the 30 mile jaunt to Hollywood. It turned out to be a really fun day.
We went to the "Walk of Fame" located outside of the Kodak Theatre and the famous Chinese Theatre. There we met all kinds of people dressed as famous people. We had pictures taken with Snoopy, Michael Jackson, and Jack Skeleton even swept Taylor off of her feet. I looked up the exact location of Cary Grant's star and made Deborah's day. It was cool to see all of the stars and places that I have only seen on TV. But man are there some weird people in this world....
After seeing the Walk of Fame, I wanted to take the kids to get a good look at the Hollywood sign with the hopes of getting a good picture or two. After driving for what Payton thought were hours, we found ourselves at the observatory. Great view of Los Angeles, but not close to the sign. We then finally asked for directions (actually Deb did-its a guy thing) and found a good place to take a photo--right in the middle of a busy road. Item two off the bucket list.
It is hard to believe that the trip ends tomorrow. We have one more day at Disneyland and are planning to hit it hard. I really hope that the kids have had fun. This has been a great trip. We have a lot to look forward to when we get home, but I am just going to focus on tomorrow and then the long drive home. Pictures to come.....
