VISITING OUR LOS ANGELES ANGELS

Two weeks ago I flew across the Pacific Ocean to visit our family, who live in LA. I was a tad busy helping out so I didn't get to post any of my adventures while I was there, but now I am home again I will retell some of things I did there.
 In the big city of LA there are 3.9 million people and in the Greater LA area there are 18.5 million.

Four of them are my daughter, Sonya, SIL Bernie, and Grandsons, Fox (5) and Banjo (3).

The boys were excited to see me and were happy to see that I had brought some presents.

Most afternoons, I would go to the park with the boys. It is about 2 mins walk from their home.
One day Fox found Elly, one of his school friends there, she was a very pretty girl. Fox announces that he is going to marry her when he grows up. He leads her into the tunnel........
and out the other side. They sure had fun. They are quite a novelty in LA by being blonde and blue eyed. 51% of LA residents are hispanic with dark hair and eyes.

 Papa came to the park after work and pushed the swing, while Elly's mom pushed too.

Love is having a see saw together.

  2. Wow - you obviously had a good relaxing flight back?
    I note the changes in Fox and Banjo - I suspect you know what?
    Great photos from a very PROUD grandma.
    Cheers

  3. Diane it sounds like you really enjoyed the trip and I love your grandsons. You must miss them when you return home but on the other hand it is a good excuse to go on holiday :) Take care t'other Diane

  4. I forgot you were away and just today I thought I must check your last post to see what you were doing and why you had not posted of late. The lads have much shorter hair now and look ever so handsome. Yes, thinking about it, yes LA would have a lot of dark haired people. I remember taking our niece to a large regional town earlier this year, and so many people knew her by sight and name.

  19. It sounds like you had a marvellous time! I wouldn't have thought blonde with blue eyes to be a novelty in the US, but it obviously varies according to location. Fox and Banjo must have enjoyed your visit too.
