Californ-i-a

This past weekend my friend Mike and I drove to California to visit some friends of mine that I met in Hawaii. We stayed with a girl named Courtney in Valencia. On Thursday we spent the day in LA. Mike, Courtney and I met up with Rob, who I had met 2 years ago in Hawaii, and his 3 little brothers at the LA temple. We did baptisms and then got some food and headed off for the Dodgers game. Rob and his bros are die hard Dodgers fans so it made the game so much fun.

Friday me, Mike and Courtney spent the day in Hollywood. I'd never been there before so it was fun doing the walk of fame and seeing all the street performers. We also went to the House of Wax and the Guinness Book of World Records.
Then at night we went to 3rd Street and the Santa Monica pier. It was fun but those street performers were so greedy. Any time we would stop to watch one of them they would stop what they were doing and yell at us to put money in their bucket. I understand that its mostly how they earn their income but I'm not going to give money to someone that's rude to me.

Saturday we spent the day at the beach making sand castles and enjoying the weather.
Then that night we went and saw Hairspray. Me and Mike had already seen it but Courtney hadn't and there are really no other good movies out right now that one of us hadn't already seen. I probably loved Hairspray even more the second time. Its such a cute movie.

We drove home on Sunday since Mike and I both started school this week.
