We arrived an hour before the Reagan Library opened, so we explored the grounds. And look what we found!? A rabbit!
Recreation of President Reagan's Oval Office. Did you know that Ronald Reagan loved jelly beans? We saw them everywhere!

While I was waiting for the concert to start I took a picture of the Hollywood sign.

In case you were wondering what we saw and heard, we saw Dudamel conducts Gershwin and Bernstein. You can visit the site here, to see the selections. I will have you know that it was wonderful and so much fun!
The Ronald Reagan Library is indeed a great place. I want to go back...the only decent president in human memory. I haven't been since he died...I was there about ten years ago last.ReplyDelete
Oh fun....I've not been to the Regan library yet or any of that...the photos of the grounds were lovely...even the surprise bunny rabbit :) :)ReplyDelete
I love Gershwin and Bernstein. They wrote some wonderful music!!! yes, I knew that President Regan loved jelly beans...especially Jelly Belly's. In fact, I think that's how the candy became so popular ;) :) :) So good and so many different flavors!!!
Thanks for sharing these photos. They're really great and makes me feel like I'm there!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
Love all the pictures from your trip, Ashley! I have to say though, I'm extra partial to this post. ::smile:: I love Ronald Reagan, and the Hollywood Bowl sounds fantastic. It reminds me of the scene in the movie "It's a Great Feeling"! (Have you ever seen it?)ReplyDelete
Enjoying all of the beautiful photos.. looks like you had such a nice time!! :)ReplyDelete
Wow! I love the pics!! That Ronald Reagan library looks so neat! I would love to go sometime!!ReplyDelete
Can't wait for more pics, Ashley!!
I saw Dudamel on tv several months ago, I think it was 60 Minutes. Was he as much fun "live" as he looked on the screen?ReplyDelete
Glad you all like the pictures. =) More are on their way in the coming days.ReplyDelete
Achaia - No, I haven't seen "It's a Great Feeling". Guess I will have to add it to my list. =) I'm hoping to email you soon.
Ana - Oh, yes! He kept the whole audience laughing at various parts of the program. Dudamel is definitely one fun conductor to watch. =) Ana, how are you doing?
Gershwin and Bernstein! Lucky you. :)ReplyDelete
Quick question -- I thought I'd ask you since they'd showed up on YOUR blog -- hehehe. You know those little share and reactions buttons? I keep clicking on them to pop up under my posts but they simply will not. Is there some kind of trick to this??
Fantastic photos, btw! ~*~
Love that speckled roses photo! :)ReplyDelete
Anna Olivia - Nope, there is no trick to it - at least for me. I hope you can get it to work on your blog! =)ReplyDelete
