Travel Diary: Los Angeles & SoCal

Hello everyone! I hope you enjoyed my post, "48 Hours in San Francisco"! After my time in San Fran, my family and I drove 8 hours down to Ventura, spent a couple of days there, LA, Hollywood, ended up visiting family in Costa Mesa and having a picnic in Laguna Beach (queue, "Let The Rain Fall Down" by Hillary Duff)!
