Out and about in LA

After watching cupcake wars a couple weeks ago-yes of course I LOVE that show!! We decided to go visit the Natural History museum. It was so neat!
Creed absolutely loving taking everything in, he is so curious about everything. He walked around pointing at things and saying "this?, this?"
Let me out! this is him below at the end of his stroller ropes. C'mon the kirsten doll isn't complaining!
The kids loved going and looking at all the exhibits.

Seriously how huge is that whale!!
These dinosaurs were Cole's favorite part. He loved them! Savvy was scared of them even though they were just bones.
We went to the Grove before since we were going to be in LA anyway.
This was our first visit to the American Girl Store. Jolisa talk about it all the time so we had to go check it out too! Savvy kept getting compliments on her Kirsten doll and how well she had kept her up. Not to brag but it was all me! My original kirsten doll from when I was a little girl. I never took out her braids because I wanted her hair to stay perfect. Savvy REALLY wants to take out her braids, she is dying to, I am just about ready to give up the fight because really now is that something I have the time or energy for right now? American girls used to be super popular when I was little. funny how things come back around. Or did it ever leave? Savvy picked out a new outfit and bag to carry her in. It bugged me that the bags are made to carry 2 dolls. Like each little girl needs 2 80$ dolls!!
In front of the cafe where you can go and eat lunch with your doll.
The grove is an awesome mall. We will be back there soon for sure. Right when we got there we had a little mishap. I walked away from my stroller to take this picture (below) and when I came back realized my purse (that has been hanging from a hook on the stroller) was missing. I freaked out and Mike talked to a security guard and made a report. They asked us where we had parked and what stores we had been to. I cancelled my debit card and phone, etc. 30 minutes later we got a call from the security guard saying he had been going through the security cameras and saw right as we were walking through the parking lot my purse dropped off the stroller well it sat on the ground in the parking structure for awhile until someone picked it up and placed it on the top of another car! We got so lucky! So they had gone up and it was still there. Crisis averted. I am a little more careful now with my purse :)

A picture perfect California family! I think I mentioned before how when we were choosing a baby name that Savannah was my husband's top pick. Now that she's 6 months old, we call her everything BUT Savannah (little one, baby, pea pod- Brant's fav). Poor thing isn't ever going to know what her name is.

P.S. Not that I didn't like the name Savannah. It just makes me think more of Savannah, Georgia - where I took a field trip to when I was in the 8th grade!

I hadn't checked the blog for a while and man - you guys have been busy. Love the whale ant T-Rex! Such cute pictures of the kids. Nicole, losing your wallet or purse is seriously traumatic. Wondering if someone out there has you identity, etc. Glad it turned out okay for you, though.

The Museum looked like so much fun for you all. Creed is so darling in those pictures. Cole is getting that big boy look, don't you just hate it, but he is so handsome! I guess with Savy and the doll, I think Nicole said once you have to pick your battles, good luck with that one. A couple of weeks ago I dropped 40 dollars out of my pocket in the gardens at Thanksgiving Point. I called the next day as they were already closed when I realize what happened. But a lady the same day lost her wallet, she went looking for it and found my money, she thought it was hers but when she found out that Thanksgiving Point found her wallet with money in it she told them about finding my money. She brought back my money and got her wallet. Pretty cool that people can still be honest in this world, gives me hope!
