The weather was gorgeous this weekend so we spent our Saturday outdoors. We met up with Eric, Laura, and Ava in Long Beach to tour The Queen Mary. Normal admission price is $25 (whaaaat?) but the whole month of January was free!
It was definitely a mix of fun and child-wrangling all afternoon. Since we went on the last day of the month, it was especially crowded. And since it's an old boat, it isn't the most kid-friendly. Owen wanted to wander anywhere and everywhere. We tried to reel him in, but this pretty much sums up our afternoon:
and playing in the old cabin bunks (if you zoom-in, you'll find a fabulous green-crusted Owen nose. It's been running for a week straight and I just can't keep it clean. I've actually rubbed his upper lip raw and it started bleeding here on the boat. Sorry little guy)
Lucy's new obsession these days is to suck on her fingers. Um, is she my 1 year old or is Owen?
I'm constantly asking her to take her fingers out of her mouth, which is what happened here. And then she did this, ("what? what are you talking about? I wasn't doing anything"):There was a gorgeous view of the water and bay from the top deck:
And Lucy was free to dance:
Not worth 25 bucks. But definitely worth a fun afternoon with fun family (and a trip to Chipotle beforehand):On our drive home on the 110, we got a great view of the LA skyline. Seems funny, but there's no good place to get this view except on the freeway. The 5 has a nice scene too.
We lovvvvvve LA (most of the time):
