Bob's parents just came for a few days, and we were excited about getting to reconnect with them in person. We also got the chance to do some of the fun touristy things in LA that we don't get to do very often! Our first stop was Forest Lawn, which we recommend to everyone but is a little-known treasure in LA.
While they were here, Bob's parents helped us with one of the things parents do best...projects around the house. :) We've been wanting to hang pictures in our bedroom all year, but never had the right inspiration and motivation--Bob's parents helped us finally get that done. Now we really feel domesticated!
Our next stop was the Getty, an incredible and beautiful art museum. One of my favorite parts was their garden, which was in full bloom despite it being the end of summer! I really appreciate that you can balance the indoor art with the outside beauty of the garden and the architecture--helps to delay the museum fatigue.

This summer has been a good change of pace for us. Bob says that his favorite thing about summer is baseball, and this year we have been able to go to several games...almost making a baseball fan out of Kristi! So, here a couple pictures from the ballpark...
