Burbank Happenings
An afternoon out with Max....
Stopping in at Chili John's where Max (usually with his babysitter Natalie) is a Thursday regular.  They poured a Root Beer for him before he even asked and seemed to know that he'd ask for lemon pie.
The first, and only, ones in the theater waiting for "Boss Baby" to begin.
Several days later, Maddie's "official" b'day party--at a trampoline place (with many bouncing arenas).

Maddie and girl friends anticipating the candle blow-out.

Afterwards, visiting Toby at Ardenville where Maddie opened presents from friends.

Morning tye-dying at Taisie's.

I went to Carmel for a few days last week
to drop off some of my painted furniture at a gallery in Carmel Valley Village--
a table full of color,

a child's chair, 

and a chest
with octopus.

Lea met me there.  So comfy on this wicker furniture that she bought the whole set and will (somehow) send it all to their Maine summer house.
Then on to the mid-Eastern boot store
and a late afternoon walk on the beach.
Carmel is lovely--and fun for Lea and I to explore it together.

Maddie's 9th!
Simon's 6th!


celebrated on the 22nd--by a visit to Chuck E Cheese 
where the kids amassed a huge number of tickets playing the arcade games

that Sam fed into a machine which gave out a receipt for some kind of (very) small gift at the end.
Then the making of a minty-chocolatey cake which was yummy.
And, finally--the celebration!

And, on the other side of the world, our Simon celebrated his 6th birthday four days earlier (well--three days earlier in their time) .
a few toys
and a birthday lunch.
Green?  Maybe because it was St. Patrick's Day here. 

Congrats to my getting-older grand kids!
