Hanging out briefly in Hollywood

When you visit LA for the first time you have to see the HOLLYWOOD sign.  It is actually visible from pretty far away, but we decided to drive to the Observatory in Griffith Park. There is only one planetarium show per day that is open to under five year olds, and we missed it.  Instead we picnicked on the grass in front and threw a frisbee,
 The sky was hazy, but we could see the city and the sign.  

Oliver picked our next stop: Yogurtland.  This is a genius marketing scheme.  You fill a cup with a selection of different favors of soft serve yogurt and choose toppings to match.  Then you weigh it and pay by weight.  Each of us concocted a delicious treat, and it wasn't even expensive. The kids loved it.

From there we drove to Hollywood Boulevard.  With Edith asleep in the car Amanda decided to drop me and Kate off for a few minutes strolling through the crazy tourists.  We passed the Mann Chinese Theater and the Dolby Theater where the Academy Awards are held.  

But a few minutes of the craziness was enough for us, and we were ready to head home when Amanda picked us up.
