Once we set the kids free at the UCLA Sculpture Garden Logan and Marlo ran around posing like sculptures, exploring and discovering new ways to have fun.  There are over 70 pieces including a large Richard Serra design that we loved so much.

Marlo loves her boogie board.  Alden and Logan raced Marlo up and down the beach this afternoon and although she toppled over a few times and had one big wipe out she laughed the whole time.

Saturday Stuff

Posted in Logan

Logan earned his 9th trophy this weekend and finished the soccer season off with 4 goals.  We went to Village Books for a book signing by a local children’s writer, spent some time with friends at our favorite park and later watched Toy Story at Movies in the Park.  Marlo was pretty excited to be out at night.

Leaping Lizard

Posted in Logan

Logan is having a great time as a Leaping Lizard camper at the YMCA Summer Camp.  He didn’t know any of the other campers, but he is fearless, friendly and loves to have fun.
