our day out

One thing I love about living in the northeast side of LA...The Huntington Library.  It's always been a favorite destination.  We spent the day there today with the kids.  It was pretty crowded with it being winter break and all, and not to mention the weather was gorgeous.  It felt so good to be outside all day.  Greta wanted to play hide and seek the entire time, so she did a lot of running and climbing and jumping.  I think the highlight for Henry was a small crow statue in the children's garden that he gripped and said "BAAAABAAAABABABAAAABABAAAAHH" to for several minutes.  The highlight for me...the rose garden which smelled so sweet with a surprising abundance of blooms.  And the Japanese garden which is usually a favorite was soured by the fact that Henry and I got separated from the pack and without a phone, time was spent searching for "the others". (I am SO ready for LOST...23 days...)  We found each other at the entrance and packed ourselves (rather tightly ) into the car and hit Blick for new art supplies for the family.  It was a very good day.

Wow! You guys had summer and sun and we had rain and fog and more rain. But the big move is getting closer... and I am excited to get to the new home. Everyone looks gorgeous in your pix.
