Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! We are having a mellow day. We gave the kids some candy and bubbles, and then Mike took them out for a Valentine breakfast of donuts, giving Rigby and me the very lovely present of a quiet morning. I hope you all are having a lovely day!

Hungry Hippos

Annabel didn’t have school on Friday, so I took her with me to check out the “Hippo Encounter,” a new experience at the LA Zoo. Guests can go behind the scenes and learn more about hippos, plus they can actually pet them (I’ll be writing the whole thing up for Mommy Nearest this week). Annabel LOVED it, but a definite highlight for her was getting interviewed by the local news about it. They put together a cute montage of the kids who were at the media preview. Just another day in the life for an LA kid.
