I took Daddy to the Zoo for his birthday!  I saw flamingoes.  Daddy liked them too.  They were pretty.  The gorilla and jaguar were scary.  The peacock showed us his peacock!  It was amazing.  I have never seen such beautiful feathers.  Except on the flamingoes.  They have pretty pink and red and red-orange feathers.  They were more fun to watch than the peacock.

I was sick all day.  But Daddy helped me.  So it was okay.

Momma and Daddy woke me up early on Saturday.  We drove to Cannon Beach.  I played with Grandma Carrie and Bruce!  I played in the sand.  Grandma gave me a ball and a bucket.  I had a lot of fun.  I want to do that more.  I was still a bit sick though.  I hope I did not get Grandma or Granddad sick.

I gave Momma and Daddy my cold for Daddy’s birthday.  They are funny.  I get to run around and do stuff.  They normally would tell me no but they do not.  It is fun.  But I am good.  So I behave.

Last night Daddy and I sat and cuddled while Momma was at a bored meeting.  She did not sound bored when she got back.  She could barely talk.  It is kinda scary.  Daddy could not talk when we cuddled.  I grabbed him my Time for Bed book and asked him to read it.  He whispered to me that I should read it.  I read it to him.  It was a lot of fun.  I showed him everything in the book!  He really appreciated it.  We had a good time.

I hope Momma and Daddy can talk again soon.  I am the only one at home who can talk now.  It is getting lonely.

Happy Birthday Grandma Diane

I smile thinking of you when your granddaughter slurps down her goat milk (much preferred over cow), is drawn in awe to the giant redwood in the UW quad over the showy cherry trees, and delights in rolling in the dirt in our p-patch garden. I miss you always and especially today but I know you are with me and our little PiElla Diane every day.
