Mango Tango

March has been an interesting month so far at our house...broken bones, ER and Dr. visits and dancing with mangoes...The latter being runaway hi-light hands down. That kid has moves!

Griffith Park





We ducked out of our normal Sunday routine to meet up with Annie's cousins + extended family at the Travel Town Museum at Griffith Park for a birthday party today. The place is a kids dream come true...old trains, even older trains, trains you can climb on and trains you can ride on, and lots of rocks to kick and throw. Weather was absolutely perfect. Traffic was amazingly mellow. Good times.

Sammy Rules


Sam thanks so much for getting us dialed for dinner tonight! Best meal in a long, long time and the service was absolutely perfect. You are the man. We were well taken care of.

Big 5


It's easy to keep track of important dates in our family because most of them happen in February and are 5 years apart. Happy birthday Stella. (Somehow Bennett is still pulling in / hoarding birthday cash and manages to "get something" even a month after his big day. You know, just to keep his sisters in their place.)

Ten


She still loves him. He still loves her. To ten more....

Got it Bad



This little girl has got it bad. The art bug. She can't contain it. She starts every day, I mean every single day with about an hour of markers and coloring books...quiet and content, and is usually back into them on and off all day. She is the kid that finished coloring books, and asks for new ones cause they are full. Pictures are taped to every wall and door in the house, and of course, her ideas occasionally find their expression applied to actual walls, doors, windows, bedding, window casings, and mom's favorite, the epidermis, lips, and teeth. At any rate, part of me is so excited to have another artist in the house and for all the fun well have together appreciating the visual esthetic of so many beautiful things. The other part totes a tool belt with a razor blade, goo gone, magic eraser, and touch up paint at all times.

I haven't scraped this one off yet though...I found this to welcome me home on our back door when I arrived from Denver last night. This is what Stellas mind does when she gets a hold of a $30.00 roll of my white drafting tape. I'd say every penny well spent.

Nothing Wrong With That


Came up on this photo of my dad, (not sure what year) as I was searching desperately this afternoon for an old e-mail. Those of you who know the kid in the video below would swear that someone dressed him up, stood him in front of an old car, and took a grainy b/w photo with some iphone app. Amazing, kid looks JUST LIKE his grandpa at about the same age...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
