Overdue Trip to Visit Shawna

I have the most Amazing, beautiful, exciting, caring, fantastic friend named Shawna. We’ve been friends since the 9th grade. The only problem with our friendship is that she lives in LA. Last weekend this wasn’t such as a problem as Millie and I boarded a plane for LA.

It was so wonderful to see Shawna’s home, and she showed us a great time around LA. Millie had her first trip to beach. She’s not a big fan.

Shawna and I went for a beautiful (steep) run along the coast. Which was a good thing because we stuffed our faces that night. We went to a fantastic Thia food restaurant.

Afterwards we watched the sunset beside the famous “Hollywood” sign.

Then we stood in a 30 minute line for a cookie ice cream sandwich, and yes, it was worth the wait.

Sana Monica has a wonderful famer’s market we were able to visit. We found some great treats and then strolled the near by streets.

A trip to LA would not have been complete in my book without a visit to one of LA’s famous cupcake shops. We stopped in at Hotcakes, picked up a dozen mini cakes and then sampled them all that night while watching the finale of “The Next Foodnetwork Star".”

Mille was a wonderful travel companion, but by the end she was tuckered out.

If it had been up to her she would have just stayed home and played with Shawna’s Goldendoodle, “Sandy,” the two absolutely loved each other. Too bad they were such a bad match. We’ll have to go back when Millie is older.

Sandy likes to dance.
