exploring lacma + pokémon go

a few weekends ago i took my own advice. i rounded up my cheek boys for a bike ride to lacma. with no real plans or requirement for the day aside from just plain old being outside with ample space to run about, the grounds at lacma was the obvious choice. a few photos from our afternoon...

all geared up and ready to ride! our favorite mode of transport is via bike. but if you have to drive you may get lucky and find street parking, or there is a garage that charges $10.

if you've never been, this place has a lot going on. there's the lacma museum, the la brea tar pits and page museum. most of the time we come for the music events and outdoor exhibits as with toddlers in tow its just easier. this time, we decided to spring for tickets to the page museum.

so the page is awesome. it's pretty small, but somehow manages to display over one million ice age fossils from 650 species. the space is sleek and the exhibits are showcased in a clever and modern way, making it a great neighbor to the contemporary works at lacma. aside from the huge mammoth that moves and growls, our favorite exhibit on view is this wall of skulls from the extinct dire wolf.

and just to show off, there is a beautiful atrium in the museum's center.

after the page we walked to the other end toward lacma. being a sunday i expected it to be crowded. but i noticed it was unusually packed with young teenagers. naïvely i thought, "oh how nice to see them all enjoying the culture here!" then josh broke it to me that they were pokemon-go zombies! word has it pikachu likes taking tourist photos at lacma! and i barely know what i am talking about here so i'll be moving on now!

no visit is complete without a stop at the "pentrable", or what we refer to as the yellow noodles.

we capped it off with a game of chase around two-hundred and two restored antique cast iron street lamps. no big deal. check out the video below that josh took of us in action. i love it so much!
