While we were in the Los Angeles area, we contacted Scott's cousin, Jodie and her husband Steve, who live about an hour away, to see if they might enjoy some company for an evening. We drove out to their house in Lancaster, California for a cookout. They have a great place and it was fun to visit with them and their two kids, Gracie and Payne.
Alice had fun playing in their backyard playground equipment:
Gracie and Alice had fun hanging out and Alice was very excited to meet their house-trained bunny rabbit - here she is petting the bunny:
We hope that Jodie and Steve and Gracie and Payne will make the trip out to Boston at some point, as it would be lots of fun to visit with them (and now we have an actual guest room and plenty of space for everyone!):
We ran across this statue of Mickey Mouse on Hollywood Blvd - we were preparing Alice to meet the real deal in just a few days!
Alice had an equally fun experience this time (probably more so, because she wasn't sick this time!):
Here is a link to some additional photos from our adventures around town!
