Los Angeles, California: Everyone slept until a fairly reasonable hour... if you consider 7:15 a reasonable hour. I do not, but was up and had everyone fed and ready for the day in time to take Leo to Hebrew school. Then I was home long enough to get myself ready and pack a picnic lunch (grandchild-inspired) for our planned zoo trip.
We all fetched Leo after school and went directly to the zoo where we discovered we were not the only family with plans to visit the zoo today. So busy! Happily, we are members, so skipped the long entrance lines and quickly joined the crowds.
It is late as I write this blog. I am tired. I am going to post a lot of photos, with a few captions. I will assume most of My Readers will recognize a giraffe when they see one.
One of the things (besides climbing on trees, rocks, ledges and curbs) our grandchildren love to do at the zoo is ride the carousel. It is one of the finest in America and only $3 for a long ride. An adult can ride free if accompanying (standing next to) a child under 42-inches. (We may be riding free with Lucy until she is in third grade. Three-and-a-half years old, and only 28 pounds.) We each rode once with Lucy. Leo? Leo is on his own now. Bubba is hiding behind that unicorn Lucy fell asleep in her car seat before we left the zoo parking lot! We had an early night. DT brought sushi home for dinner - our grandkids LOVE sushi and yellowtail sashimi and can eat their weight in edamame.
Then: Baths. Books. Bed.
Until my next update, I remain, your "joining them soon" correspondent.
