silver lake

Inspired by Sunset Magazine, we decided to head up to Silver Lake.  Kind of sad that a magazine has to push us to go somewhere that is just minutes away from our home. 

Couldn't do the journey hungry so we grabbed dinner at La Puente.  I love their smothered burritos (I like mine with cheese no onions, if you want to know).  

We were greeted by a bajillion mosquitos.  Was gross.  So gross that I scoped out a stranger that looked that they were much more prepared for the great outdoors and asked her if I could use her repellant.  She let me.  So nice.

The kids both wanted Karl to carry them.  You see, we don't do a whole lot of walking and, well, our kids aren't really used to it.  Our fault.  We were joking that Karl was going to start melting from so much exposure to nature.  

Cute ducklings.

Proof of bad parenting:  photo of your kids in front of a moose.

The view on the way to Iceberg.  
The kids were excited for dessert but both fell asleep on the way there. 
Must have been all that walking.

What planet have I been living on? I haven't even heard of Silver Lake. Where is it? It it really beautiful. It looks like you had a wonderful day. Karl is going to build muscles carrying both kids at once.

What a great sunset! How can Karl melt from so much exposure to nature and still be related to Dwight????
