I unplugged the kids from the tv and took them geocaching in Hollywood instead.
We walked through Bronson Cave (The Bat Cave) where some folks were wearing fun costumes and making a crazy little movie that inspired my 12 yr old to have more confidence in his own ideas.
Then we climbed some trees and strolled through the bird sanctuary by the Greek Theatre. We were treated to some horseback photography. All in all it was better than doing housework.
