With my sister as our guide Dylan and I spent some time in Hollywood, California. Of course, we had to visit all of the normal tourist attractions.
First up is the Griffith Observatory on a mountain overlooking LA.  It is such a beautiful location!  I am fairly certiain that everyone who visits LA comes here. 
Apparently in LA, they have a year round ‘fog’ that prevents  a clear view of the city or the sign.  Holywood-13 Holywood-14
I’d love to have a photo session at the observatory!  The pictures below were obviously taken by Dylan.  I am on the right, and my sister Rebecca is on the left. (The shots below are straight out of the camera)

Dylan recently figured out that there are 25 pictures of him to every 1 picture of me.  He shot a few at the observatory. 
Holywood-17 Holywood-18
I had no idea that the telescopes worked when it was light outside. 
Enjoying the view. 
My sister took a few sunset pictures of Dylan and I.

Mann Grauman’s Chinese Theater – Pretty sure that my pictures look like every other tourist.

The foot prints outside the theater.  To be honest, when other people are taking pictures everywhere I look, I don’t like to take pics.  I prefer to take unique pictures.  Most of the Hollywood pictures were taken by Dylan.

I’m pretty sure that Dylan took the following 3 pictures from around the theater!  Not bad! 
The walk of fame and Kodak Theater
Dylan finds a Hard Rock Cafe EVERYWHERE we go. 
We did a little research Wikipedia-ing and discovered that Hollywood was originally a religious town...interesting!

Thanks for spying on us… Just kidding ;-)   I’m glad you are here! It is much more fun to take pictures when someone is looking at them.
