Wicked. After we experienced an incredible day at Griffith Park; my parents, Annabelle and I went down to Hollywood to watch the new musical “Wicked.” The show was held at the Pantages Theatre off of Hollywood Blvd. If you don’t know, Wicked is a prequel rendition for the “Wicked Witch of the West” and her sister the “Wicked Witch of the East” from the “Wizard of OZ.” This was a great performance and we seriously can’t wait to go back to the Pantages Theatre. Overall, one great Birthday. Thanks Mom, Dad … and my new wife Annabelle.

Griffith Park Observatory. Yesterday, I chose to spend my Birthday (one day late) in Los Angeles. I heard about this observatory watching the Discovery Channel and over the past year, my desire to experience it has only gotten worse. Finally we did it and it absolutely didn’t disappoint. The Griffith Park Observatory was brilliant and I without a doubt, learned more in those two hours of visiting and exploring than I ever knew about astronomy. Unfortunately I left there with more questions than I had going in. It was an amazing experience with my parents and Annabelle that I would definitely recommend to everyone!

Happy Birthday to one of my greatest friends, Jamie. We spent the day at Disneyland and we enjoyed the “Happiest Place on Earth” on into the late late evening. We finally left the park at about 12:30am to find our intoxicated selves at Mille’s, a fine restaurant that smelled of Pine Sol and Las Vegas. We finally ended the night at our hotel directly across from the “Tower of Terror.” The next morning we met at the Garden Walk out door mall in Anaheim. We had a delicious brunch at the Cheesecake Factory and enjoyed the amazing morning. Anna and I headed back to San Diego to call it a day.
