Day Four–Out and About

 

Yesterday involved quite A LOT of driving! We spent the morning driving around The Walk of Fame, Sunset Blvd., Beverly Hills, and UCLA. We saw the crowd waiting for Jennifer Anniston at The Chinese Theatre, and tons and tons of AMAZING houses.

But I have to say that out of all the sightseeing, my favorite:

day four 001

In – N – Out Burger!

So many of you commented, emailed, and chatted to let me know that I NEEDED to get a burger at the iconic chain. Well played friends!

I ordered my burger ‘protein style’, which basically means without a bun. But I still let them know that I was gluten free, so that they would know to use a clean spatula. AND I was able to order fries because that’s the only thing in their fryer!

Was it as good as the hype? Sure. It was good.

But was it the best burger ever? No way.

We couldn’t find a place to park, so we took the burgers to go and ate them at Coldwater Canyon Park (aka park to the stars) It was a gorgeous park, complete with sweeping views…of GIANT houses.

We thought we may end up seeing some stars that frequent the hot spot – Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba – but alas, no. The only other park-goers were nannies with kids. Ella didn’t seem to mind:

We had to cut play time short because Parrish, BIL, and my mom had a very important appointment:

at The Jay Leno show! They were able to sit in on a taping while bestie, Lil’ Gluten Loves Me, and I went back to the hotel and recharged.

We’re heading back to San Diego today and I am praying that the traffic is better going than it was coming!
