10/28 - Norman wants to take you for a ride

Hey, baby...  let's go for a spin.

I'm off today and tomorrow -- Grandmother's in town!  We went with the twins to their Halloween partay at the pre-K this morning, and she made her famous fried chicken tonight.  Tomorrow, weather permitting, we're off to the pumpkin patch!

10/27 - Pink Pony is pretty in pink

There's a big baseball game going on in the city, and the train station was decorated with team colors -- orange and black (just like Halloween!).  They made a silly announcement:  "Attention BART patrons, for an important announcement:  GO GIANTS!"

Here are all the PINK things I could find at my desk.

10/26 - Chairman Cheese Car

Here's Cheese Car on a banana road.  Vroom!!  Beep beep!

Chairman Cheese Car will race anywhere!  Vroom!!!

10/25 - Moosie and Tiny Diny say, "BEAUTY!!!"

(Two points for anyone who can name the movie that quote comes from.)

Moosie and Tiny Diny find some blue friends.  They look like space guys, don't you think?

What pretty purple flowers we found!  BEAUTY!!!

10/22 - Spider is experiencing web issues

I was so excited that I didn't have meetings this morning!  I was going to get all kinds of work done!  Apparently, work had other plans for me.  They installed some new stuff on my computer and it took me 45 minutes to get online this morning.  Ugh.

Spider and I had lunch with Katelyn today.  Her desk is right next to mine!

10/21 - TorTay haz a happy

Couldn't we all use a little more happy?

Today at work, we practiced what to do if an earthquake happens.  Mommy helps her work team stay safe.

If an earthquake happens, get under a table or a bed or something strong, and stay under there until the shaking stops or a grownup tells you it's OK to come out.  Let's practice tonight when I get home!

10/20 - CowCow sees a squid

Look at the poster we saw...  it's an ocean diver taking BART!  And he has a big squid on his shoulder.  How silly is that?  (I guess not that much sillier than taking a cow to work...)

At lunch, we found twin bikes!  We wondered if their riders were twins as well.  (No -- one is Michael's, and he is not a twin.)

10/19 - Duck, duck, goose!

Duckie and I found an old Granny Goose truck today.  Anyone remember those chips?

Hey, Duckie...  step away from the apple!  No grabbing!

Crabbity found a little fuzzy friend.  Awwww.

Today's color is orange!

10/15 - Snoopy and the pumpkins

Snoopy found some Disney friends hanging out on the side of a bus.  Doesn't he look happy?

Snoopy and the pumpkins.  Could be a band name...  But I bet their dancing wouldn't be very good.

10/14 - Uniqua says, "Halloooooo down there!"

We saw some interesting construction vehicles on the way into work. It looked like the one was cutting up the road and pouring the road bits into a dump truck.

 When we got to my desk, Uniqua jumped onto Bob the Builder's head!  He was very surprised.

Fun with steamrollers...

Here we are, still eating lunch at 3:30pm (started at 1:45).  We did get a free cookie!

Here we are coming home on BART.  What a day.

10/13 - Littlest Seahorse is peachy

We had yogurt for breakfast today.  Peachy keen!

There was quite a line at the taco truck at lunch time.  I guess there are worse things than having a moment in the sun and breathing non-office air.  :)

10/12 - Happy birthday, minions!

Here's a photo of Diny the Saur and Mommy in their happy place...  We went for lunch with nice Katelyn today.  NOM!  Every other minute of the day has been meetings.  Boo.

Here's what I really wanted to focus on today:  It's the first birthday of my blog!  I hoped to get a cupcake and do a gorgeous phone photo of Diny and said cupcake, but...  see: meetings.

Then, I had the brilliant idea of sharing this moment with the REAL minions -- my darling twins!  So I got cupcakes for the whole family and was immediately proclaimed by Lil' Gal to be "my best Mommy ever."  Yesssss.

10/11 - Littlest Fish says "blurp"

Like a fish out of water, as they say.  Littlest Fish reminds us all to hydrate for life.

We saw this seal? sea lion? serpent? on a tile at the salad restaurant.  Littlest Fish was happy to find a friend!  *I* was happy to grab lunch at 1:30pm.  Turns out the best way to beat a heat wave is to be trapped inside for meetings all day!  How clever!

10/08 - Crabby wants to go for a ride

Do you see some numbers?  What are they?

At lunchtime, we saw some fishermen.  It was a nice day in the city!

10/07 - Diny the Saur has a big banana

Hey!  This is about breakfast!  Let's keep it G-rated, folks.

At lunch, he found some new friends...  except for the saber-toothed cat trying to catch his tail!

10/06 - Carrot and the breakfast of champions

Sometimes you just need a little sweetness in life.  Hello, morning bun.

We pretended that carrots grow on trees. Silly Carrot!  Silly Mommy!

10/05 - Arrow points to Parrot

There he is!

Hey Bob the Builder, what's that on your head?  SQUAWK!

10/04 - Warthog/Dartdog Dinosaur loves nature

We saw this tree with pretty flowers on the way into work.

Foraging for lunch, we saw a Very Large Lobster. W/D Dino wanted to go swimming!  (I wanted to set the lobster free).

10/01 - Yittle Yizard finds a rainbow

OK, so they were markers at my desk...  Still, pretty!

At lunch, Yittle Yizard found a yotta noodles.  Yum!
