Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center in Los Angeles

5 pictures in this post. Wow! Wow! Wow! Yes the trip into the California Science Center in LA was once again long and traffic filled BUT getting to see the Endeavour was definitely worth it. (Thanks Nathan!) At this time of year you have to prebook your time but it’s only $2 a person and worth every cent. First you are taken through a museum/exhibit of sorts which provides the visitor with lots of... read more

Hovis at the Grand Canyon AND the BIG surprise – Day 3 of 4

7 photos in this post  What got more photographed when we took Hovis to the Grand Canyon? The canyon or Hovis? In all honesty it was the canyon BUT Hovis did get a LOT of photos taken.
