spirit of adventure.

Weather in the valley has been extremely overcast recently and to beat the June gloom on my weekend off, Carly and I donned some super cool 3D glasses Saturday afternoon and headed to the ultra-touristy Hollywood/Highland to watch Up! at El Capitan. It was amazing! Not only was the movie super cute (it had a hot air balloon, my fave!) but the whole theatre palace experience was indescribable... there was a stage show with Disney characters and an organist who played all the clasic Disney songs!! NBC/Universal offers free screening of two movies a month to their employees in their private theatres on the Universal backlots. From the heart of Hollywood, we headed over to Universal Studios in Burbank to watch a screening of Away We Go before spending the day in Santa Monica Sunday to watch Angels & Demons with our book club. This weekend has me still feeling like a tourist in my "hometown"...
