There is a park nearby our house, which I love because it is so peaceful. Sure there are the days where little o really needs to let off some steam with other kids within a big playground with slides and swings and such. But more often lately, I find it refreshing to just let her run in the grass and enjoy listening to the birds and collecting the leaves (eating them-err not so much...) Today we did some serious bird watching!

We thought it would be fun to go to the zoo when Grandma was here. You didnt Love it-but you did like brushing the nice goats hair.
Next, was Nana Kathy's visit. We took a drive over to point Dume. It was such a beautiful sunny, winter day. We saw pelicans fly by and you wanted to jump into the cold ocean! But Nana saved you and got her feet wet instead!
Poppa was the next one to visit. It was his birthday! We all went to Uncle Pete's house to celebrate. You loved collecting all of the forks on the plate.

We started out at the park at watched the ducks and played in the playground...then some friends at an indoor play pad..
nap time break, then off to my friend, Lindsey's for a playdate!
Today, we met some other friends down at Palisades park.
It was sort of rainy & overcast outside, but it didn't stop the babes from chasing eachother around, laughing and trading leaves and tree bark:)

Although Los Angeles doesn't actually have seasons, it does get chillier this time of year. I'm getting excited to wear my new boots and sweaters, while sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace! Recently, we found a little gem of a park at a nearby school. It is so peaceful there. There is a garden surrounded by little rocks that we like to sit on and benches too. I loved these big green leaves and made me miss Autumn in NY.

Each morning, after little o wakes up, I (or Daddy) go in and the first thing she says is Sadddde. She is so excited to see Sadie, she can hardly handle herself sometimes. She gets so happy when she sees her, that it makes our early morning wake ups a bit easier. Sadie too gets excited. Once she hears a cry from the bedroom, Sadie lays down by her door, anticipating the appearance of little o that day.
Sadie has been a very patient pup throughout the past 17 months since little o has arrived, with all the poking and prodding at her fur. Well, little o has finally got the concept of what gentle means, which Sadie really, really appreciates!

The Yellow Balloon, so little o could get her first professional haircut. I've cut her hair a bit at home before, but understandably, she will not sit still long enough for me to give her a descent new do.
She was suspicious at first.....

Today we went on an outing up to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark. You ran over to the pile of pumpkins trying to pick them all up. Then finally you found one just your size. This made you very happy...then you tried to bite the stem...then the stem fell off. Oops!
You saw some goats....
Had some fun in the wagon...
You ate some tomatoes....
But didn't really enjoy them too much.
It was a fun day, hot, crowded, but a nice experience. In a few weeks perhaps we will try apple picking!
