California: Part Two

Sunday afternoon we hiked up to Griffith Observatory. It was really fun because we got to see the Hollywood sign again and the city Los Angeles. I took lots of photos in the museum of the pendulum and other displays.

Matthan asked me if I knew how to take a selfie.  Of course I know how to take a selfie so I showed him!

The only bad part about that day is that my feet got blisters on them from my new shoes. My mom thought I it might be really hot so she recommended that I take my stockings off.  Not a good idea. She felt really bad whenever we had to walk some where. And we walked a lot. Fortunately Matthan had some really big bandaids.

My mom put on a bandaid whenever we were going to walked a lot. We went to the Natural History Museum. We walked on campus too.

At the Natural History Museum they had a special display about The Silk Road which was very interesting because Morielle lives on the silk road. We could not take any pictures in this exhibit but there was carpet. Yeah! I took my shoe off and my foot felt better. After the museum my mom and I waited outside while Matthan and my Dad walked to get the car which was nice.


I stayed in the car when they went grocery shopping. I took my shoes off at Matthan’s house and walked around taking pictures of his roommates and of Matthan cooking with Mom helping.

We went to L.A. Live to see the movie, Noah The employee that took our tickets really liked me. She called me `Pumpkin Cup.’ She was so friendly that we took a picture together. The movie was really scary but I was brave. And of course, I took my shoe off during the movie.


Another walking and then sitting activity was going to Matthan’s classes. First we walked across campus: ouch! Then we went to the lectures. Tuesday night was Post Modern Film. My mom thought the lecture was interesting. I thought the movie was scary and sad: Life and Death in L.A.

Wednesday night’s lecture and movie were much better. The professor talked about `The Sound of Music’ and he showed clips from `Calamity Jane.’ Then we watched `The Pajama Game’ with Doris Day. It was really fun! I really liked that college class!

We walked back to the car in the dark, dropped Matthan off at his house, and then said, `Goodbye’ `See you in a month for graduation!’



The next morning we were back on the road headed toward Missoula. Yeah—no shoes except for bathroom breaks! I got home in time to usher all four shows at MCT’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. I wore old, comfortable shoes. It was fun!  I also put a hold on some Doris Day musicals at the Missoula Public Library.

  1. Hi Matalia, LOVED all your photos from your visit with Matthan, but my favorite was the very second one where you two were looking at each other with LA in the background. Wonderful of you both. I was sorry to hear about your feet problems. I have experienced that too and it is never fun when it hurts to walk – OW!!!!
    Happy Easter to all your family! Love, Gingy

    • Dear Gingy,
      I am glad you liked California photos. I am excited about Matthan’s graduation. Another road trip!
