here are some pictures of my trip out to L.A. i went there to observe the residents at UCLA's pediatric dentistry program. i didn't take any pics of the pediatric dentistry, which was cool, but i did take pics of the getty center, venice beach, and hannah montana movie premier. thanks for the hospitality mark and bekah!, and mark and michelle! i think the pictures are really big for the first half, and then smaller for the second half.
ps- melissa's in utah right now so texas is a little more boring than usual. i was however able to get around to working on the yard (mulching / weeding), playing some racquetball, and catching up on my golf-watching. but mostly i'm looking forward to thursday cuz melissa and matilda get back.
this is hollywood boulevard.
this is my hands in ahnold's hands.
the photographers are really focusing. this is taylor swift's back.
this is hannah's friend. i'm pretty sure she's famous and on hannah montana's show.
this is the red carpet and the bright lights. awesome.
this is vanessa williams. she's famous.
this is billy ray. i can't tell if he's good looking, really weird looking, or creepy looking. melissa just saw this movie and said it is the best movie she's seen in the last couple years.
this is the best pic i got of miley cyrus. i didn't even realize she was in it 'til i got home and was looking through my pictures. my little sis-in-law, lizzy, made me promise i'd get a shot of miley. well, lizzy, here you go.
this is an example of what the people who sell stuff at venice beach live in.
here are some cool california kids doing cool california stuff. skateboarding without shirts but with long hair. awesome.
and this is me. i didn't know i was going to the beach today, so i wasn't wearing my rash-guard or my sunscreen.
