I took Nathan and Ashley to the Getty Villa while they were in town – Ashley likes ancient things and I studied ancient history for over 3 years in college (6 credits of ancient Latin shy of a degree). The gardens are based on the gardens from Hadrian’s villa and they are beautiful – I […]

We ate Saturday night at the Umami Burger on Ventura Blvd. – very different decor than the one on Sawtelle, very unusual looking place. The food is just as good as the other location we visited. I took a couple pictures….

Photos from Palm Desert

We visited my mother-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law in Palm Desert. We took a hike to Indian Canyons and we took a lot of pictures – it was beautiful and a nice place to hike with wide trails and a stream running down the middle of the canyon. I also took a pic of […]
