We spent the afternoon and evening in Hollywood, enjoying Cars 2 at the El Capitan Theater. This was our third trip to the historic El Capitan. The first was to see the original Cars, when Emma was an only child. We saw Oceans last year, with a full contingent of children. Oceans, sadly, didn’t get the full feature treatment of organ and curtain light show. Cars 2, though, was a full-blown event. Following the movie (great for kids, so-so for adults) there was a mini-theme park set up behind the theater that entertained us for a good long while.
After we’d worked up a healthy appetite we headed to Roscoe’s House of Chicken n Waffles for a healthy and nutritious meal. The kids had waffles and french fries, Marla had a waffle and fried chicken omelet and I had a pair of fried chicken thighs along with a generous portion of red beans and rice. We washed it all down with sweet tea, naturally.
The car ride home from Hollywood was uneventful – most of the car was asleep by the time we dragged back home in Rancho Santa Margarita.
