St. Patrick's Day, Hillman's and Hollywood

The kids got all festive for St. Patrick's Day! Don't  they look cute?



 The Hillman's were in town visiting Ed and Marie, so we decided to go down and visit with them.  We met them in LA so we could do the Hollywood stuff.
 We went to the Griffith Observatory. It has great views and a lot of fun and interesting things to do inside.

The Super cool giant pendulum
The 240-pound brass ball, suspended by a cable 40 feet long, swings in a constant direction while the Earth turns beneath it. The pendulum is mounted to a bearing in the rotunda ceiling that does not turn with the building as it rotates with the Earth. A ring magnet at the bearing gives a little tug on each swing of the pendulum to keep the pendulum in motion. As the day passes, the pendulum knocks over pegs set up in the pendulum pit and indicates the progress of rotation.

Lauren always has to throw at least one tantrum.

There's some fun things to see while walking down Hollywood Blvd.


After all the Hollywood fun, we went down to spend some time with Ed and Marie.
