Thursday and Friday Ben's Aunt Cindy and two boys(Steven & Andrew) came up from Camp Pendleton to spend Andrew's birthday with us! Our plans were changed a few times but we still had a great time! Thursday morning we went and visited the Page Museum and La Brea Tar pits. Ben and I have really been meaning to go and check this place out but just haven't had time.

The Page Museum houses the Earth's richest and largest and important Ice Age fossil collection. We were able to watch paleontologists at work and see scenes showing Southern California and North America how they were thousands of years ago. One thing that I learned was there are NO dinosaur bones here, the dinosaurs were extinct way before the tar pits were formed! Here are just a few things we saw:

Later Thursday evening we went to the Pirate Dinner show! Last summer when Ben's Nanny and Papa and his cousin Grant came to visit we all went to the Medieval Times Dinner show and had a blast so we were really excited to see the Pirate Show! We couldn't decide which we liked better and agreed that both were really fun! The Pirate Show was very interactive, Ben, Steven and Andrew got to play parts in the show!

Ben and I LOVE having his Aunt Cindy, Uncle David and cousins so close, they are lots of fun and things are never boring! So if you're in Southern California for a few days I definitely recommend checking these places out, ESPECIALLY the museum!
