Bodyworlds and the Grand Lux

Can your day start off any better than with breakfast in bed??

Next we headed north to Los Angeles for the Bodyworlds 3 exhibit. It was SOOO amazing! We saw all parts of the human body. The most amazing we both agreed was the head with only the arteries visible—all the rest was gone and all the arteries were dyed bright red, yet it still gave an unmistakable map of the human head. We also saw babies in all different stages—from 2 weeks all the way to almost full term. It was amazing to see babies close in age to what ours is right now and all the detail that’s already visible. If it comes to your area, it’s definitely worth the money.

We went to the rose garden out back of the museum and enjoyed a cool and delicious popsicle.

Then Kai had a great idea to visit the Grand Lux only about 15 minutes away near Hollywood. For those of you who don’t know, the Grand Lux is one of our all time favorite restaurants in the world. Our favorite place for it is in Chicago overlooking the Magnificent Mile—it’s beautiful and the food is fantastic. But this one in LA was great too. The food was just as good and the inside looked very similar to the one in Chicago. We had cream of asparagus soup and split a Manhattan salad and white chocolate raspberry cheesecake for dessert. It was the perfect ending to a great day.

  1. Sounds like you guys had a great time! They have a baby exhibit like the one you are talking about at COSI in Columbus. I'd love to see bodyworlds though. It sounds pretty neat.
