December 28th: LA Trip part 1. GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY!!!!!! These are some of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE PICTURES of 2011!!!!! We had quite an adventure getting there! First my navigator told us to turn the wrong way and made us go up the wrong road. We all saw the "Road Closed" sign but ignored it because well quite frankly we trusted the navigator more. That was mistake number one! hahaha.. after we got to the top of the mountain and realized the the road was most definitely closed because we were not allowed to go any further, but we could see Griffith Observatory AND all the cars going in. We then proceeded to take 7 other different closed roads until we made it to the OPEN one hahaha... while searching for the correct path to the observatory we came across some interesting people.
First was the chinese guy who couldn't speak english..... we asked him for directions which didn't work out to well...
|"Whaa? Whaa? WHAAA?"|
|Its the Hollywood sign!!|
|in the car :)|
|finally found the right way to the Observatory and then there was NO parking... hahaha this is how far we had to park away.|
|daytime skyline :)|
|in the front of the observatory!|
|I know its sideways, but I love this picture! (I couldn't rotate it :|)|
|the view :)|
|the grandma with pink hair!!|
|hollywood sign! (again! haha we took a lot with this!!)|
|right after the sun had set!|
|I absolutely LOVE this picture!!|
|last picture of the night! haha my brothers...|
December 29th: LA Trip Part 2!!! INDOOR SKYDIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
quite possibly the exhilarating activity of 2011!! Groupons + Lisa living in LA = P&M go skydiving and get some pretty awesome pictures!! We had a blast and it was an experience I will never forget! I can't hold back on any of the pictures so here they all are! ahahha
|driving there, Lisa the photographer is amazing! haha|
|at the citywalk!|
|Paige and Me at the citywalk, the vortex of air is right behind us!|
|observing the people going in before us|
|all suited up and ready to jump in!|
|going into the vortex :)|
|we are ready!|
|about to go in!!|
|jumping into the wind tunnel!!!! so scared!|
After we went skydiving, we went into the city to the museums... we decided to go to Guinness World Book of Records, Wax Museum and Ripley's Believe it or Not. Ripley's was by far the best one out of all three... the wax museum was terrible.. and the World Records was just very outdated... some of the funniest pictures:
|World's Tallest Man: 8'11''! Crazy!!|
|here's me: 5'8'' hahah :) don't even compare!|
|Wax Museum in the background!|
|Ripley's... Lips :)|
