To be a nanny in LA, at least if you're a lucky nanny, is to go on many field trips.


And if you're an extra lucky nanny, the children you spend time with are 100% adorable. 



I wasn't quite sure what to expect at the La Brea Tar Pits. The Pits themselves are a free experience, and the museum is occasionally free as well, which is why we ended up going. D&L got a kick out of all of the displays, but shied away from the animatronic sabertooth tigers and wooly mammoths.



They had a lot more fun running around outside, wrinkling their noses at the stinky tar, and asking millions of scientific questions that I had no hope of ever being able to answer. Luckily, they've learned not to be too morally offended when I say no, mostly because it happens so often that they've just had to accept my lack of general knowledge about the world as a fact of life. 

















Those little dudes are my favorites.

Super random side note: does anyone have any opinions or knowledge on the difference between linking to photos from Flickr or Photobucket and just uploading them straight off the computer? I usually use Flickr, but I uploaded these ones and they're looking rather blurry...once again, in my head, I said that like Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. I have a strange desire to be her after every episode I watch. I think it has to do with how composed she always is, even when events are traumatizing. I am about a millionth as put together as that. Do finishing schools still exist? Must check into it...there, I did it again. 

Have a fabulous day, friends!
