Baby Elephant

This Monday we had a special visit from Cousin Jason who was in town for the day. Not only did we get to enjoy a nice lunch at Pok Pok, but he played and played with me all afternoon, made me laugh SOOOO hard and took us for a spin in the convertible from the rental agency. Woo Hoo! That sure was fun, considering it was nearly the last sunny day of the week. I was complemented this week at daycare for being so pleasant and fun lately. My imagination is in overdrive, and I spend lots of time pretend making coffee, fishing, cooking, riding in boats and playing in my "house" (= a big cardboard box). I've also been playing with my polaroid camera that Grandma Terri and Grandpa Tom are sharing with me. I've taken some pretty great pictures so far... we'll try to get a few in here sometime so you can see my work. The film is pretty old so they look vintage. Saturday we headed to the farmer's market for the first time in a few weeks. We've had so many veggies from our CSA that it's been a little much to add from the market. However, we went mostly for fun, and just enjoyed the crowd, got some apples, beautiful flowers and ate some tasty little cookies from two tarts. I had fun running around with a little kid who I met there. In the afternoon, Daddy and I met up with Val, Ray, Joaquin, Linda, Matt, and Andy at the Greek Festival. Oh my do they like their desserts sweet.... so do I!!! By the time Mom joined us (she had to keep an eye on Scooter who managed to eat a chocolate bar... again!!) I was pretty jazzed on the sugar and the crowd. We had a nice time though, eating all sorts of amazingly yummy buttery foods. Sunday, Dad and I made taro pancakes (mix) before he took off to try to fish.... yum! I ate them all day long. Later Joaquin and Val came over and we played at home for a bit so I could finish eating (and the grown-ups could caffinate in preparation for our outing). Then we headed over to the zoo! It was a touch drizzly, but we had a nice time nonetheless. The highlight was probably seeing the new baby elephant (after hunting over the whole zoo for

it!!) He was pretty darned cute. But I also liked driving the tractor and seeing the sealions. Then after a fun afternoon with Joaquin and Val, we met up (again!! :) with Andy, Linda and Matt for dinner at a yummy restaurant called Old Wives' Tale, they knew just what to make me... broccoli, peas and carrots and gave me things to color! Everyone was quite pleased with their food, and Mom was especially happy with the BLT and soup! Pshew!! I sure do love weekends where I get to see my friends!
