Whew. After a depressing Friday night the rest of the weekend turned out pretty spectacularly. For my birthday I came up with an idea that I'm not sure whose idea it was but I think it was mine? We met up Grand Central Market in Downtown LA (DTLA) which is a big indoor market that has gone the way of the hipster and added some cool restaurants in there and took our food to Grand Park nearby which is an urban park that goes from the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to the steps of City Hall.
The beauty of the market is that it there's something for everyone but the sucky thing is how dang crowded it is on the weekend. The gang loved having so many food options and wandering around but it was tough maneuvering a stroller and a group of people through a narrow space.
It was your typical boring incredibly beautifully perfect day in Los Angeles with highs of about 75. Sunny in the sun, cool in the shade. We ended up at some tables under shade which were empty except for three homeless dudes and had ourselves a nice picnic with city hall in the background and a playground nearby too. Obviously it was an amazing day for Alice with a big ole lawn to run around in and her grandma to take her to the playground.
