We’re off to Hollywood

Ethan, Zach, Julia, Josh, Timmy and I have been on a little adventure.

We started out this afternoon –
hit traffic on the highway,
stood in line at the airport,
traversed through security (not an easy task with five kiddos),
waited for our plane,

traveled through the air,

ended the short plane ride just as the sun was setting,

hit more traffic on L.A. freeways,
and finally arrived at our destination, hungry and tired.

Boy, has it been a fun day!

Why the adventure? Well, Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner have teamed up to get families preparing – and enjoying – nutritious foods together. The Frigidaire Kids Cooking Academy is an online school that features daily tip, fun recipes and how-to videos hosted by family friendly chef Mary Sue Miliken and we were invited to attend a special blogger event to celebrate the launch.

I’m sure I’ll have much more to share tomorrow, but for now I must call it a night!

On Vacation :: The Griffith Observatory

Young Twins in front of Griffith Observatory

Ever watch a movie on the ceiling? At the Planetarium in the Griffith Observatory you can do just that. Only this time, it’ll be about the stars and planets of our galaxy, answering the question “How did we get our understanding of the cosmos?

Centered in the Universe begins with Ptolomy in 2nd century Alexandria and takes the student through the ages to Galileo to Hubble and beyond. It’s a visually stimulating journey through the Milky Way that children of all ages will enjoy!

Our vacation to Southern California was officially kicked off by a visit to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. We arrived just in time to view the last Planetarium showing of Centered in the Universe before we enjoyed the beautiful sunset.
