My first time in California! Alexandra and I hopped a Virgin flight [what a magical airline] and popped out on the west coast last week. The day included emergency stops at In-N-Out for snacks, Santa Monica wanderings, and an incredible dinner at the Farmers Market at The Grove. A's sister, Julia, was the best host and tour guide we could have asked for. I'm starting to think that I need to live somewhere with at least a couple of hills and perhaps dinosaur fountains.
