Wee Party Girl

K & I took Wee Party Girl out for dinner at Kamakura's. Alani was pleased because her dinner was served on My Little Kitty dishes and My Little Kitty utensils. K & I savored our plum wine and Alani was quite happy with her rice candy.

Quick stop at Safeway for some odds and ends. Alani's choice of movies? Davey & Goliath. I still really like the theme song and I've always loved Goliath. 6 episodes! One on forgiveness came in very handy at the zoo.

Alani was tired - she was sawing wood less than 10 minutes after she had gone to bed.

I actually woke up before she did - we ended up going to Old MacDonald's for breakfast around 9. Then on to the Oakland Zoo - she'd been wanting to go for over a month. Lions, Tigers, but no bears. Oh Sigh... Elephants, camels, baby ducks, leemurs, giraffes, monkeys, meerkats, birds and zebras. The new Children's area is wonderful. Got to see the alligators close up, and sea turtles too. Otters! Goats!

While Alani was walking across the "lilypads", another little girl bumped into her. Alani ended up putting her foot in the water and was very upset. While I was wringing out her sock, we talked about the D & G episode on forgiveness and she calmed down. Thanks Mat!

We rode on the train in the very last car. One very happy wee party girl.

Came back to my place and had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Watched Dumbo on DVD.

Swimming! It's still too cold. 'Nuff said.

K & I took the kids out to dinner at Ohana Hawaiian BBQ. Kyle & Alani now like the chicken katsu.

What a coincidence! While we were touring an open house yesterday, the little boy who was being good and watching tv in the family room was watching--Davy and Goliath! That brought back such memories!

Hurray for good things that are still good!

Oh, bother...if I'd known you were going to see otters I would have MADE you take a camera...I've been trying to find some good shots of them, so much so that I've pondering offering to 'chaperone' with you and the kids at the aquarium if I had to *laugh*

I had to draw elephants :-P Anyway, given how green I was Friday night would you REALLY have wanted to drag me up to your place so I could go to the zoo the next day? ;-)
