Squeezing in a lotta stuff

When visiting dear Sister and family here in Southern California, during our time between selling pumpkins and pedaling Christmas Trees, there are things to do, $$$ to spend and places to go.

While driving to one destination we make up our menu for our Thanksgiving. I will tell you that my dear family is quite accommodating by celebrating Thanksgiving on the Saturday before. Family and friends will gather at Sister and Bro-in-law.  We start at the tree lot on that Sunday.Having the tree lot means you must kick Christmas into gear Thanksgiving week.  And I don't know if you have looked at your calendar but between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2013 we have less than four weeks.  So this season is gonna be slammed.  New Years will be here before you know it.  So get those letters to Santa.

This last week has been busy with touristy things also.  Mr Doodles has never been to UCLA campus so sweet nephew in law took us all on a quick trip.  A quick snapshot of each historic building and the Hall of Fame is amazing.  I haven't been there in years so it was great for me as well. 

Earlier that day sister, brother in law Mr Doodles and I spent the morning at the Annenberg Foundation Space for Photography

The Annenberg Space for Photography is a cultural destination dedicated to exhibiting both digital and print photography. The venue is the first solely photographic cultural destination in the Los Angeles area.

The current exhibit is National Geographic  Exhibition of 125 years of Photography.  If you happen to be in Los Angeles don't miss this exhibit.   Take advantage of their generous offer of validating your parking garage ticket if you don't you'll be paying $35 instead of $3.50.

Of course anytime you spend time with our family  there will be eating involved.  A trip to Tito's in Culver City was on the agenda.  Always good and never disappoints.

Thanks to all for a fun day.
