Ketchup on the Blog Part 1 - Spring Break

This spring break three of my friends and I traveled to Los Angeles, CA.  It was awesome!  The beaches were great, time spent with my family and my friend's family was fantastic, and we definitely saw the sites of downtown LA.  I found that LA is a tangible city, meaning that instead of seeing things on television or in the movies, it's right before your eyes, under  your feet, and at your fingertips.  It was a nice change of scenery from the SLU campus; the sun shines way more in LA.  A few highlights included:
- Trying to get on The Price Is Right (and failing miserably)
- Eating at Pinkberry 
- Spending the day in Laguna Beach with friends and family
- Playing the games "Fishbowl" and Balderdash with my friend's family - so fun!
- The beach
- In-N-Out Burger

It was a great trip, and I had fun seeing a new part of the country.  On the ride home, our flight attendants really liked us... and gave us a lot of snacks.  MMMM honey roasted goodness.
