Rainy, but still fun

By Tara Zandra | February 28, 2010

I missed blogging last night because at some point I needed to spend quality time with my husband. I haven’t been giving him any attention due to cookies, more cookies, and even more cookies. He’s doing a lot of the work too so while we’re working together, we’re not being together. Anyway, we had a pretty good day yesterday, despite the off and on downpours. We never got a little rain, it was always a driving rain about 20 minutes an hour.

We all slept in, because it was needed. We slowly got ready for the day and then headed to LA for lunch at the Grilled Cheese Truck. Chris had a melt with brie, pears, and honey; Daisy had macaroni and cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich; Tabitha had provolone, spinach, and avocado. I shared Daisy’s and Tabitha’s sandwiches because I knew neither would finish. Oh, the girls also got tomato soup and we all shared tater tots. Very good food, even if it did cost an extra six bucks because we forgot to bring cash and had to use a no-name ATM.

The truck was parked in front of a store called Japan LA which has cutesy Japanese pop culture stuff like Hello Kitty and the like. It’s stuff right up our alley and we couldn’t wait to see it. Unfortunately, their website promises a much bigger store than is the reality. I was sorely disappointed. I did get tiny cow magnet though and Daisy got a plush Mr. Toast as well as tiny erasers shaped like food (why she likes those, I don’t know). Tabitha picked up a Cannibal Funfair figure which really defies description and a Gloomy Bear toy (also hard to describe). I don’t really know that we’ll be back, but they are hosting an event in a couple weeks that Chris wants to attend and the Grilled Cheese Truck will be back, so we’ll see.

In the evening the girls had a small dance performance. It was low pressure and had almost zero standing around and waiting time which I really appreciate. Needless to say, both my darlings danced wonderfully :) Not all recital costumes are in yet, but Daisy’s class does have their costumes so I can share a picture of her taken before she danced; she is in the starting pose of her dance.
