Robby, Hazel, Zinnia
I hope all the moms out there had a great Mother's Day weekend! My family started the weekend off with a stroll down Brand Boulevard in Glendale and then some playtime in the park at the Americana. We passed the historic Alex Theatre which had the one sheet up for an upcoming screening of one of my favorite Stanley Kubrick films, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb (1964). There are two showings on June 22, 2013, the first at 2pm and the second at 8pm. Visit the Alex Film Society site to order tickets. I highly recommend attending an event at the Alex. It's a real treasure in the heart of Glendale, with a lot of early Hollywood history.
Sipping a cold drink on a HOT day.
This weekend was extremely hot. It didn't take long to break a sweat chasing Hazel around the Americana park space. As soon as Hazel, who is approaching 15 months, saw the big kids running around playing tag, she immediately started running with the group, trying to keep up. She might be small, but she thinks big. After some time in the sun, a cold smoothie in the shade was in order.
Daddy, let me go!
And fortunately, because Hazel has such nice Aunties who will take turns to watch her now and then, Mama and Daddy were also able to get in a Mother's Day weekend date night which we spent at a classic Hollywood restaurant. I'll be back with more on that restaurant and some photos in my next post.
Have a great start to the week!
