Bowl Me Over!

We took Jemma to her first concert at the Hollywood Bowl last night. She was so excited and kept saying the word "orchestra" over and over. It was really wonderful to hear Dvorák and the Beethoven Violin Concerto with Gil Shaham. And it didn't hurt that we had free box seats. Jemma listened quite well and hardly whispered any questions.

Beach Bums!

We had a great day at the beach with Jemma's best buddy, Zoela. The girls spent the majority of the time down at the water running from the waves. But the photos we have show the kite flying and sand playing fun. The dogs were loving it, too!

Hat's Off!

Our little bug is a hat girl - and to think, we almost named her, Hattie! Back in 2006 we took pictures of her in the same hat - my, how she's changed!

Go Dodgers!

Jemma finally went to her first baseball game last night. Unfortunately, the Dodgers lost to the Rockies, but all the way up until the bottom of the ninth, Jemma kept saying, "But they could win, right?" Gotta love the positive thinking. We were impressed with her attention to the game which lasted the full nine innings. When I had to go to the bathroom she was quite concerned, "Hurry, Mom, or you'll miss the game!" She asked questions like, "Why can't the ball go past that line?" and "Why are they combing the dirt?" and "Can I have more peanuts?" I think we have a budding fan on our hands! At the end of the night we walked down to the field and sat on the plush grass to watch the wonderful fireworks display. These photos were captured on my iPhone - not bad!
