This is my second blog in a series about our travels this past month. For more see : April Travel: Baby Shower and First Flight and zachary 11 months.
On Wednesday of our week in California, my Mom and I decided to take on a big adventure-chauffeuring Z around downtown LA.
We took the newly expanded Gold line to Central Station in LA.
Z loved riding the metro the starts and stops, the huge windows to look out of, and of course all the people. Once we got to LA we transferred lines and rode again all the way to Universal City.
We knew Z would enjoy the lights, signs, and music of the City Walk. His eye were wide taking in the sights.
We thought Z would really enjoy the dancing fountains. We were wrong. I think the they were un-predictable, and much taller than him.
Since my last time to City Walk you have to go through security for the studio park. We were wondering if part of that was because they film Extra at the fountain daily. From a long distance we saw Hollywood stars trying on sunglasses filming later in the day.
By this time, Z was so tired that when the bucket hat slipped over his face he decided to take a nap, right in the middle of the ice cream store.
We took our time traveling back with the normal commuting crowd and got home just in time for dinner. It was a lot of work to haul a kid in a stroller around LA but the memories were as they say priceless.
