Trip to Venice Beach

Below are photos from our trip.

This is the cottage we stayed in, on the "walk streets" several blocks back from the ocean.

The morning after we arrived, the kids playing on the beach

The palm tree in the front yard

Playing around with the camera a bit


Kids at the fountain outside the California Science Center

In the rose garden outside the California Science Center

The rose garden is right by where the Olympic park is.

Owen was running and Douglas was yelling, "Slide!"

The beach later that evening, when it was quite windy and deserted

We went to the Angels on Tuesday evening, in Anaheim.

They were playing the Twins, who won. Meanwhile, the crowd set a Guinness World Record...

for the largest number of people wearing fleece blankets.

Yes, this is a Guinness world record category apparently.

Wednesday was beautiful. We went to the beach in Santa Monica.

There was some amazing skateboarding going on.
