When Dear and I arrived in Southern California and drove north to Oxnard from the Long Beach airport I took this photo of the Getty museum on the hill close to the Wilshire area of West Los Angeles. Little did I know I would enjoy the museum with our oldest kids, my sister, sister in law and grand niece.
On Tuesday night Josh and Laura asked if I wanted to go along with them to the Getty on Wednesday. My sister Vera had taken the day off so it worked out for all four of us to travel north from Orange County together.
My sister in law, Kelly, nannies her granddaughter Ellie and they joined us at the museum.
As one of my facebook friends said, Josh and Laura make the Getty look good.
Ellie really took to her cousin once removed.
This painting will be familiar to many. Irises by Vincent van Gogh.
Josh and Ellie enjoying more masterpieces.

There is so much to enjoy at The Getty so I would encourage multiple trips. Here are links to my other trips to The Getty.
We enjoyed a meal at a cafe on the grounds with so many great choices. Entrance to the museum is free and you only have to pay to park. J. Paul Getty (1892-1976), was an art collector and businessman who used his fortune to create an institution dedicated to the diffusion of cultural knowledge.
