Skye's Juvenile level Skyliners team competed against twelve other teams from around the country. Their performance appeared nearly flawless. The results came in while Victoria (my wife) and I ran out of the arena in starving desperation to grab some "normal" food at a nearby In and Out Burger – our appetites did not adjust with the time zone change and arena food was not appealing – Skye called me with a simple "we won" sounding like she was in disbelief. They had just become the Synchronized Skating Juvenile National Champions. Congratulations are deserved for the other Skyliner teams that competed: Intermediate placed 2nd, Novice 4th, and Junior 1st!

|LA seen from top of Griffith Observatory|
We finished our LA visit at Griffith Observatory – best part of the trip. Serene and beautiful setting, amazing view of the city. We saw what was probably the most elaborate, and dramatic, planetarium show. Just a nice experience to wrap up our visit knowing we were headed home the following morning.
