Gibbons & Hollywood

On Saturday, March 14th, Matt & I went down to Santa Clarita to look at some monkeys. It was extra credit for his Anthro class, so we decided to go. It was really interesting and fun! I got some great shots of the gibbons, but the man who runs the place asked that I didn't post them online. (Reasons being that zoos will try to acquire the rare breeds he has -- and he tries to release back into the wild). I'm begrudgingly respecting his wishes.
Here's a handsome monkey I found in the preserve...

And a pretty bird...

This wins The Best License Plate Ever Award in my book!

From Santa Clarita, we decided to go to Hollywood and be tourists all day. Matt's never been down there before, so we went to Mann's Chinese Theater and put our hands in the prints of movie stars. It was fun to watch the freak show :)
Standing over Journey's star on the Walk of Fame...one of the best bands in the history of the universe!

Being sassy on Hollywood Blvd. We ate at the Pig n' Whistle. I got a huge burger and ate the whole juicy thing...it was so good!

Matt showing off his sweet belt buckle from the vintage store.

Check it out! Cowboy vs. Bear. So manly!

Where Jimmy Kimmel films his show.

We picked up some delicious cupcakes at Sprinkles, then headed home up the beautiful California coast.

We are so lucky!
