Easter Part One: Dyeing Easter Eggs

Posted by: Maggie

For the first time we decided to let Eleanor participate in Easter Egg dyeing. In prior years we didn’t trust her around colored dyes in our carpeted dining room. But she’s slightly more trustworthy these days.

We did end up with a few cracked eggs, but no spilled dye!

And I think our eggs turned out quite lovely!

Tip: If you use brown eggs you’ll get jewel tones instead of pastels!

Happy 30th Birthday Love!

Posted by: Maggie

To my husband on his 30th birthday…

because of all the work you do for me with minimal complaining,

because you make me laugh and make me smile all day long,

because you’re good at everything you try,

because you’re smarter, funnier, a better writer, and more artistic than me but love me anyway,

because this little girl thinks you are the best daddy in the whole world, and because she’s right.

I love you more than ice cream! Happy birthday baby!

La Brea Tar Pits

Posted by: Maggie

On yet another Spring weekend outing we drove to Westwood to drop off some photo gear I rented, and grab some Diddy Riese cookies. We got out of the house later than we had planned so we were all hungry for lunch before cookie time. So, we decided to grab some In-N-Out. To remind you, we are vegetarians, so we get the secret menu item, Grilled Cheese, which is just a cheeseburger without the meat. Eleanor is all about the french fries and ketchup.

While in Westwood I remember that we had been meaning to check out the La Brea Tar Pits. It’s just a few miles from Westwood and we get in free with our Natural History Museum membership. So, after lunch and cookies, we headed down Wilshire to the Tar Pits.

The museum was okay. It’s much smaller than I thought, so there wasn’t as much for Eleanor to run around and look at, like there is at the Natural History Museum. I think we would have enjoyed it more if we could have followed along on the tour and got to hear more information about the Ice Age Mega-Fauna and Mega-Flora in SoCal. But unfortunately, Eleanor just isn’t old enough to sit through that. Maybe we’ll go back in a few years and try again.
