Our girl loves to paint, paint, paint, paint, paint. Her favorite book, coincidentally, is "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!" Jemma loves to use her hands, the brushes, the ends of the brushes... she puts us to shame with her creations - well, we're a bit biased, but we've seen lesser works in greater spaces... We take 15% commission if anyone's interested...
We had a wonderful evening at the Griffith Park Observatory with our friends, Mary Frances, Chris and daughter Grace Li Qi. The girls had all sorts of questions about our planets and then spun around and around on the great front lawn to defy gravity themselves.

Here are two of Jemma's best pals from nursery school, Zoella and Maddie. We've had a few playdates with these girls and they are always wild and fun. Pictured are two quiet moments - RJ, Maddie's dad, got the girls to rub their bellies and tap their heads, and the other is a picture that Jemma took of Maddie and Zoella taking pictures of each other - how post modern chic! And, oh, we didn't intend for it to be a clothing optional playdate but alas, the girls were not having any of their ultra chic hand me downs that day!

We always have fun when we hang out with the Yorkes and their two girls, Daisy and Rosie. They had a super high-end swing set and the girls wore themselves out. Then we had a delicious dinner of white lightening chili and while the adults indulged in a fresh strawberry tart, the girls snuggled on the couch and watched their favorite TV show, Ni Hao Kai Lan and learned some Chinese from it. The best part, though, and we should have had a video for it, was when the girls sang and danced the entire opening song of Ni Hao - talk about cute!

Our friends Clara and Shannon and their daughter Franny, joined us for some Easter egg hunting. The girls were thrilled with the idea that a huge bunny hopped into our yard and left all these eggs filled with candies. Jemma kept retelling the story over and over again, partly because she was so excited and partly because she was so hopped up on sugar, as it were!
We didn't do our usual "Eastover" celebration because Easter was much earlier than Passover this year. But we celebrated nonetheless, and it was magical. Here are Jemma and Anna - two super cute bunnies. And speaking of bunnies, Easter's not a holiday without the basket or the bunny cupcakes!
