11/30 - Monkey business

Back to work after a long weekend.  Howler Monkey and I enjoyed hanging around.

We had lunch with David and tried desperately to take a photo of some novice jugglers, but they weren't very good.  The hackysacks were on the ground more than in the air.  (The bi bim bap, however, was delicious as always.)

"Where are the jugglers?  Are they in the street?" asks Lil' Guy.
"Poopie poopie!" says Lil' Guy.
"Thank you!  Upside down!" says Lil' Gal.

Just for you...  with love from Mommy.

11/25 - Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?

Brown Bear can only type 1 word a minute.  Which is pretty good for someone with no hands.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
I see a funny car parked near me...

Brown Bear meets Goldilocks -- er, Dana.

11/23 - Look, Mommy! No hands!

Giraffe came back to work with me today.  Ate lunch, we nibbled on leaves (mine was a salad) and noted the new Xmas tree in the food court.

Later, we learned about the importance of hygiene and keeping one's hands clean.  Poor Giraffe.  He has no hands!  (I washed mine, for the record!)

Giraffe learned about meeting etiquette and started thinking about lunch.

When we went out, we found puddles and pilgrims.

Happy Friday!

11/19 - Gettin' Froggy with it

This is marathon meeting week.  It's Thursday, and I've been to 19 meetings.  4 more tomorrow, and I can slink into my weekend like the empty husk I've become.

Here, Froggy and I take a break to look at frogs on the computer. Note the forced smile (mine, not his).

11/18 - Z and me

Today, Z(ebra) and I had a very big day -- 6 meetings and a party!  Here he is helping Liz take notes and appreciate the view from the conference room.


Later, I got a little smooch (awww) and measured Z up to make sure he was big enough to go to an arcade with me.

Fun was had by all, and the twins were thrilled with the Mardi Gras beads Z brought back for them.

11/17 - Elephant the helpful

Today, my little helper was Elephant.  He helped me pick out a pen for our bazillion meetings.

Then, we had a shortened, rushed meeting with Campbell (who was very gracious about it all).

Finally, we hydrated, and headed for home.  Thanks, Elephant!

11/11 - Toto saw a steamroller!


Lil' Girl gave me Toto to bring in today.  We saw a steamroller on the way in, and then we had some breakfast.

Hi guys!  Toto and I went for lunch at a food court with a sculpture that looked like a jail.  Then, we saw a green trolley!  What did you do today? 


Their reply:
Lil' Girl says "thank you!" and Lil' Guy says "I Love You!" 
"I love you, Mommy" adds Lil' Girl.  "I want to kiss you," Lil' Guy says. 
Lil' Guy also wants to say, "Upside down." 

Finally, Toto joined Suzanne and Liz and I for dinner.  Nom!!

Lucy and I would like to ask BART riders to refrain from using their cell phones while others are trying to nap.  And we'd like to remind BART riders that it is NEVER okay to clip your nails on the train.  It's just nasty.  Thank you.

Hi guys!

Lucy and I went to a meeting at another building.  We saw a big jackhammer truck and I took a little movie to show you when I get home.  We also had candy at our meeting!

I love you!

11/09 - Darby does downtown

Hi twins!

There's construction on the street in front of my work! Darby liked watching the rock loader and street sweeper.

We had lunch with David, and then walked along the water. We took pictures of the bridge and a big arrow.

I love you!
