Our August Los Angeles Trip

I was freezing. Kids didn't seem to mind.

Just wanted to take a second to mention the wonderful trip we had in August to LA. I kept on thinking i would write a big post about it, but i will never have time, so Mom! Here are a bunch of photos! Todd spends a lot of time in LA. At Five Star Hotels […]
