We were planning to have a date night on Saturday night, but with sick/cranky kids we decided it wasn't the best idea for anyone. Instead ,we had a family outing to the westside. We've been craving our favorite pizza place: Rocco's. So....we went! It was a drive but worth it:For being HUGE pizza lovers, we don't even order pizza there!...because their calzones are TO DIE for. The best one is the Pepperoni:
Look at that melty cheese!!! YUM. There's some ricotta in there too:
After the juggling act of eating with our two kids we stopped at a nearby park. The weather on the westside was perfect, at least 15 degrees cooler than we're used to:
Any park near the Miracle Mile has all sorts of interesting people hanging out. I love a group of old men, sitting around playing Backgammon (and exchanging money on the side). Makes me laugh:
Their wives found other activities to occupy their time:
What a good dad, playing soccer with your kid...oh, and teaching all about the importance of beer:Lucy's new favorite past-time is looking for STOP signs. She learned about "octagons" on Sesame Street and cannot stop saying that word. When she sees a sign she yells out "OTTAGON!" followed up by "S-T-O-P, spells, Stop!" It's really cute. In fact I sense a Halloween Costume idea coming on....
So here she is looking for Octagons:
More weekend updates to come!
