Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds spent a sweet afternoon together in LA yesterday. They stopped off for some ice cream, then went for a hand-in-hand walk in a park. Blake and Ryan retreated to the West Coast after she spent much of the last month in the Big Apple working on Gossip Girl. There is a hiatus for the CW program, though, until a new episode returns on April 2. Blake apparently made a weekend detour to New Orleans for Brad Pitt's Make It Right NOLA charity gala on Saturday night. Ryan's name wasn't on the list of expected attendees, but the Louisiana city is close to his heart. Ryan owns a house not far from New Orleans, having purchased it a few years ago with then-wife Scarlett Johansson. The home is still Ryan's, though, and he and Blake reportedly visited it recently during a trip back to NOLA, where they first met working on Green Lantern in 2010.
