Abuelo Brings Home His Grand Daughter An Olvera Street Souvenir :)

Stephen brought home this fiesta dress for Dillan this summer... isn't it adorable!!! We set it aside for a month or so thinking it was way too big for her ... but as we found out ... much to our surprise!!! It fits her perfectly! We hope to take Dillan there some day on a trip to LA with her Mommy & Daddy! Often there is a Mariachi Band playing on the plaza! We can just see her dancing around!

Olvera Street is the birthplace of the City of Los Angeles, otherwise known as El Pueblo Historic Monument. The colorful village features 27 historic buildings with a traditional Mexican style plaza area! Wander around the marketplace and shop for souvenirs including handcrafted Mexican wares typical of old Mexico! That's just what Stephen did this summer before he headed over to see the Dodgers play the Mets with Megan this summer!
Stroll through this beautiful street and stop for the popular taquitos or tacos at the outdoor cafes. Olvera Street also offers a variety of traditional authentic Mexican cuisine, with delicious enchiladas, and other native dishes! Union Train station is across the street and is a lovely old place to wander around too! Our family have some joyful memories of going to Olvera Street off and on throughout the years :)
