AD #4 - The Huntington

Today we had a special guest with us, my brother. :]  We went to The Huntington Library, Art Collections, & Botanical Gardens in San Marino.  It is one of LA's great cultural treasures with its beautiful paintings, rare manuscripts, and lovely botanical gardens.
We went into the library and saw some of the oldest books in the world.  We walked through many different botanical gardens and had lunch there as well.  After, we took my brother to see Occupy LA, since it was a big topic at Thanksgiving dinner last night.  We're going to end our day with dinner with my dad and a show at The Laugh Factory.  Today was a good day. :]
