Hula Hips

Today Dawson, Michael and I got the chance to take our Valentine's pictures at Griffith Park. Yes, it seems early, but I explained to Mia earlier that I need time to edit and print out the pictures so I can slip some small photos into the cards that I plan to send out. And I'd like to get those out the first week of February in case there is more of a mail load because of the romantic holiday.

"It will be warmer then" was the excuse I used to make myself feel better about pushing the photo session back from 9:30am to 2:30pm. Although, I still found it chilly while the wind blew, along with remaining around 55 degrees. Here is the view of where we started to take the pictures. It took us at least half an hour to get into the groove on the lower level/bottom of the trails. But this was our first halfway-up-the-hill view:
Before we left Griffith Park, I convinced Michael to do an animation dance (since I decided against making a behind the scenes video- he was being generous enough with all the soft smiles). While looking through the other pictures that Dawson took, I laughed while noticing my "hula hips". And I loved how that fire pit area we are standing on seemed to come with its own stage! Griffith Park is just amazing. And I'm sure we have only seen maybe about 25% of the whole place. Here is one of the "finale" photos, followed by my Spin GIF:

It's funnier if you have music playing- example being "Ice Ice Baby". Haha.
