La La La La Day Four Long Beach

Day Four of our vacation was much more my speed.
We spent some time at the laundromat since I only packed 3 outfits for each of us, it was time for some clean clothes!
I especially appreciated the moments to sit and read and watch life around me.
One of my favorite things about the laundromat is the sheer amount of laundry that you
can get done in record time.
It feels so productive!
I also love to watch how people connect or disconnect during this time of waiting.
I noticed that I am a disconnector.
I like to sit and read and be all to myself.
Zachary is a connector.
He made fast friends with another boy in the laundromat and they played cars for about 20 minutes.

Afterwards we drove to get breakfast again at Einstein Bagels.
I love bagels.

Next we drove around Long Beach and checked out the college campus.

We had just missed a Long Beach State Basketball game at the Pyramid the night before.
Bummer.

We picked a great place to pull over and park for a while in Long Beach while Z and Steve went for a walk, Macy and I enjoyed the boardwalk and sat and read in the warm sunshine.


 During this time we did our research on the "islands" of oil rigs out there.  Pretty interesting how they created it to look like an island paradise when it is in fact hiding the "beauty" of the oil rigs.



The ratings on Yelp are awesome for the Attic, so we decided to sit out the wait and get a well sought after table here.  

Steve ordered the short ribs poutine fries.
THIS WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD DELICIOUS.
ORDER THIS.

 Z ordered their famous Mac and Cheese with Applewood Bacon and Hot Cheetos on top.
It was surprisingly good.
Macy ordered an omelet with all the fixings.


I ordered the appetizer sampler.
Do you even know me by now?
I have to try it allllllllll.....

Also, I'm a sucker for bread pudding.
And bananas.
And bananas foster.
This is bananas foster bread pudding.
You know it.
 We capped of our evening with late naps, reading, more reading, and bedtime.

Now this is my kind of vacation.


La La La Day Three Universal

Day three of a theme park is too much for me I've decided.
I really need one of those shirts that say something along the lines of
"I can't go out today, it's too people-y out there."

Way too many peoples,
Way too many long lines.
If I ever tell you I'm planning more than a couple days at a theme park,
take me by the ear and shake some sense into me.
I'm just not cool enough for multiple days.

We spent day three at Universal Studios.

After having gorged ourselves on Disney food for the last few days, we decided to start our morning with Acai breakfast bowls.























 There comes a point in the day where the kids don't want to take pics together anymore.
It looks like this:










Stay tuned for day Four!
