Dog Dude walked to Smashburger with us, more caterpillar antics, wildflowers & coffee bean trees, pancake chef, Big Dude dresses up, rain, beach, teeny-tiny mussels & silly glass frames, field trip to San Juan Capistrano Mission, matchy-matchy hoodies …
one chrysalis, two chrysalids, Little Dude as PUCK!, MND at GCA, followed by The Merchant of Venice the next day at Looseleaf Theatre, followed by The Getty Center the very next day. Culture overload :-).
