Mommy and Me Adventure: Day at the Adobe
Is there a name for a group of old ladies? There should be. It should be something like "cackle". Like "a cackle of grey hairs". I saw a lovely cackle of grey hairs today. Dad was hanging with the boys - so it was a mommy and me day. Em and I made our way to Calabasas to meet up with her cousins and visit the Leonis Adobe Museum. It's not a very big museum but for $5 ($4 for adults and $1 for children) it's a nice way to kill an hour on crisp winter day.
The adobe is one of the oldest surviving private residences in Los Angeles County and apparently known as one of the most haunted sites in LA County as well. The cackle doesn't really talk about the ghosts on the tour but they do tell you a little bit about the home.
Emily's favorite part though was the farm. We saw the biggest horses I've ever seen - like straight out of a Budweiser commercial. Chickens, turkeys, long-horned sheep and lambs. We got a bag of hay and fed the animals. The kids had a blast.
Afterwards we headed down the street to Susie Cakes and shared a flourless chocolate cupcake and picked up some minis to bring back to Dad. All in all a pretty good day.
