All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits is FREE first Tues of the month

Every FIRST Tuesday of the month, the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits is FREE to all visitors in Los Angeles.
This museum is filled with the mounted skeletons of Ice Age animals dug out of the adjacent tar pits, including woolly mammoths, dire wolves, saber-tooth cats and more.
There’s a short FREE movie also that shows how creatures got trapped in the tar pits, died and were eventually fossilized. You can also go outside and see the actual pits, which are still being excavated.

A bit farther south, the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum in Exposition Park near USC is also FREE on the First Tuesday of the month.

Parking is NOT free, by the way.  I think the lot is $8.  There is street parking in the area, but watch for permit-only signs and never park on Wilshire Blvd in the afternoon! They will tow you away!!

Regular adult admission is $7, students are $4.50 and kids 12 and under are $2.  Also note that active duty military also get in for free.

First Tuesdays of the month in 2011:
  • April 5, May 3, June 7, July 5, Aug 2, Sept 6, Oct. 4, Nov. 1, Dec. 6

There are also attractive picnic tables in a park setting where you can bring your own lunch. So pack your lunch and make it nice afternoon with the fam.!

And note the Los Angeles County Museum of Art next door!
