The tar pits at night
Yesterday the girls had off from school so we took the youngest two (Chloe had a school paper to write) with us up to "The Hyaena Gallery" in Burbank to take a look at the space for Mike's upcoming solo art show.
The girls found this quite dull, so we took a drive through Hollywood, and headed to the LaBrea Tar Pits. I took this snapshot as we drove past (I had to-there was a dinosaur!).
We got to the tar pits at dusk, so the museum was closed, but the park was open!
The museum had some amazing relief murals on the outside.
And the park was filled with interesting sculptures...
But, of course we came for the tar, which was bubbling out of the ground...
And filling up this very smelly lake...
Well that's why I came. The girls were just there to roll down the hills. Maybe that's how all those poor animals fell in there!
It was a nice place! We'll have to come back sometime in the daylight.
For the last few years my daughter Phoebe has struggled with nightmares. I've even written about it here before (click here). However since we've moved to San Diego it's gotten significantly better, in fact I don't even remember her last nightmare. What has been happening though is that she's been sleepwalking. She's gotten up in the middle of the night, had conversations with one or more of us and either returned to bed or wound up on the couch with no memory of any of it.
I found this all to be fairly alarming so I turned to the vast collection of knowledge and nonsense we call the "world wide web" for answers. Did I find them? Well...no, but I did find this posted on one of those "ask a question" sites....
Help! My Four year old is sleepwalking and peeing around the house!
....So now her problem doesn't seem so bad!
