What hath Gutenberg wrought?

We got Lucinda a printer for her computer today. Most of her games and kid web sites have things to print out. So now she can print things for herself.

Today was the grand opening of the newly-remodeled playground in Victory Park. Lucinda had fun playing there, and she also got a little balloon animal.

Lucinda knows how to tie her shoes now. She is, of course, very pleased with this.

Mommy took Lucinda to see the Caltech-Occidental Concert Band this evening. The show was Lucinda’s first time seeing a real concert.

We still have the praying mantis. It’s been living in its cage in the kitchen. Here is a picture of it eating a spider.


Some fun on a smoky day

Today we all went to the Science Museum in Exposition Park to see the Risk exhibit. This is about probability and perception of risk. It was pretty interesting. It also seemed somewhat appropriate, since fires are raging in the mountains. Lucinda was a bit afraid of the bed of nails at first, but after she tried it, she liked it enough to do it six more times.

There were also some exhibits on the second floor from the Exploratorium in San Francisco.

After the museum, we all had dinner at El Torito before going home.


Rubio Canyon and Travel Town

Filed under: — stan @ 7:44 pm

Today we had two adventures. First, we went on a short hike in Rubio Canyon. We got to see some of the remains of the old Mt. Lowe Railway. We didn’t get far enough up the trail to see the big landslide that covered the waterfalls, though.

After this, we went to Griffith Park to see the L.A. Live Steamers, but when we got there, the sign said that they were closed today. So we went next door to Travel Town to see the trains there. Lucinda had fun climbing on the trains.

After all this, we had lunch at Chevy’s in Glendale.

Last Saturday, we found a large praying mantis in the back yard. We put it in a little cage and brought it in for Lucinda to see. She took it to school yesterday to show everyone. Last night, we went out to the garage and caught a large spider and put that in the cage with the mantis. This morning, all that was left was a small pile of legs in the corner of the cage.

Lucinda spent the night at Aunt Maggi’s, and today they had a baby shower for one of Aunt Maggi’s friends. Lucinda was very excited about the party, and she had a lot of fun.

Lucinda had a big day today. First off, our neighbors had their grandchildren visiting today, and Lucinda had two other little girls and a puppy to play with. Then in the afternoon, her friend Sofia came over to play. Daddy cooked lunch for the four girls, and they all played until 4:00, when it was time for Lucinda to go to Aunt Maggi’s house for a sleep-over.
