Sunday - It was an early morning for members at the LA Zoo yesterday. We got there at 8:30 and had the zoo pretty much to ourselves until 10 a.m. The animals were all very active-- the lion and the lioness were awake and roaring, the koalas were walking and climbing everywhere, and the bear and tiger were both out. We left at about 10:30 when the park began to get busy and hot!
On the way home we stopped at IKEA to do some shopping and BJ's in Burbank for lunch. Libs enjoyed all of the excitement at both locations, but she especially enjoyed her lunch at BJ's (don't fret she just had cereal and fruit.)
Grandmalito came over for a short visit in the evening after the whole family took a nice long nap. Mommy made a quick dinner and we hung out. When we were trying to get Libs to fall asleep this evening, we had her on our bed and she crawled forward. True, she had to stick her rear up in the air and her face in the bed, but she was really moving forward. Pretty soon she will figure out how to do it on her arms, not her face.
Monday - Today we are going to run over to Mint Canyon for their book fair, then we're going to Uncle John Krinkle's farewell party at Rio Norte. We'll let you know how things went later.
We ran up to Mint Canyon for a short visit. Libs got to see Dung, Amy, Betsy, and many other of Mommy's school friends. After that we went to the district office to see Kathy and Mandy. We scheduled a date for lunch next week. Mommy and Libi then went on a quest to find Mimi. We went to Saugus, no Bonnie-- then to Canyon, no Bonnie. We never got to see Mimi but at Canyon we did see Mrs. Purdy and Peggy. While in the choir room Libs got to play the piano for the first time.
Libs and I then went to Rio Norte for Uncle John's farewell. Libi got to see lots of Rio Norte staff and was once again passed around for all to hold. She even got to go on-stage with Daddy to help him do his master of ceremony duties. We are now home and preparing for dinner.
