Chopsticks, You Say?

This was David's and Jonathan's first trip to Raku, a favorite Japanese restaurant in Grover Beach. They found chopsticks intriguing...

Hold On!

The big activity at a birthday party that Serafina attended today was riding a "quad". When I dropped her off, the Mom asked me if it was OK if Serafina rode a quad during the event. Thinking she'd be behind some adult driving, I said sure. When I came to pick her up, this is what I found. The girls were running the new quad around by themselves. Serafina's eyes were about the size of saucers as she mounted up, but she did manage to "pulse" her way around the back yard. A little burst, then near stop, another little burst (of courage, mostly), then stop... repeat.

Down Where It's Wetter, Under the Sea...

Serafina's drama camp culminated in a performance of "The Little Mermaid, Jr.", a 1-hour abridged version of the full-length Disney show. What a hoot! Serafina has been talking about little else for the last two weeks. "And I've got to run in and out in between everyone without crashing into anyone!" "And we have to do make-up!" I guess that's your job when you're a fish...

Otter Pop !!!!!!!!!!!!

Tracy caught it on film... AJ desperate to get the new fridge door open. He couldn't do it the traditional way (feet on the floor), so he dreamed up this approach, including all the requisite grunting and groaning to go with it. Try as he might, though... No Otter Pop.

Papas Are Allowed

Papas are always allowed to spoil grandkids at Cool Cat Cafe on the way home from drama camp. Next up is gymnastics, so the calories will be well used. Too bad Papa won't get all his calories processed so readily.

Bundles of Love - and They're Labeled Thus !



Mini Me

Serafina exclaims, "Look, I'm a mini Papa!"

And yes, that's duct tape on the Uggs. I love those Uggs.
