A good time had by all

Yesterday the family decided to head out to LA. We went to Philippes for some very yummy french dip. Eric was excited because he got a 9 cent cup of coffee. You have to admit, you can't beat nine cents for a cup of coffee.

Then we headed over to Olvera Street where we did some shopping for the house, a dress for Siobhan and a few toys. It was so hot but at least most of the place is shade. We didn't eat there since we ate at Philippes so I kinda miss the people watching but the sandwiches were too good to pass up!

After that we headed over to the Fashion District. That was my first time there. I used to think it was stalls not shops. There were so many, we only went a few blocks. Mostly men's suits and shoes. We found one children's store were Siobhan found a beautiful black dress. I hope we find somewhere for her to wear it too. On our way back to the car we passed a shoe store ($5.99) and Siobhan and Diego got a pair of shoes. If they don't last, well who cares they were only $5.99!

We made it home about 20 minutes after the UCLA football game started. Kids fell asleep on the way home as I knew they would. It was really a great day. We had a lot of fun!

I have never been to Phillipes or the fashion district. I love Olvera street though. So glad you had a nice family day. Nine cents for coffee is awesome.
