Jackson @ GLAZA

Baby rattlesnake. At the new LAIR (topic of the Red Tri piece that brought us to the zoo on Friday).

 Bonus wildlife. Can you spot it in the weeds behind the fence? Jackson saw it first: "Mommy, there's someone in dere!" "Well, if there's someone in the giraffe enclosure I'm sure they're just doing their--oh yes, that's a skunk."

Let's go!

Jackson @ LACMA

Last week we visited the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to do some reporting for an upcoming Red Tricycle piece I'm working on it. Pictures below, maybe more to come when the piece is published.

Los Angeles-based grandparents, et al: We should plan a whole-family, holiday-time visit to Metropolis II, which is every car city you've ever built with Jackson, except bigger and with moving parts.

And now, on with the show...

Urban Light, by day. We'll have to go back at night sometime. He'll lose his mind.
"Hey sweetie, do you see the big rock?" "Um, Mom, look at all these zillions of little rocks!"

I just wanted to take a picture of his butt, because it is cute and because someday he'll be grown all up.

Jackson interacting with the fountain at the original LACMA entrance. (What could possibly go wrong with this scenario?)

Field Trip Week, Part II

WEDNESDAY: Chilling with the fish (and the adorable sea otters!) at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.
THURSDAY: Checking out the coyotes in the gallery of North American mammals at the Natural History Museum. We  rode the new Expo Line down there and also caught the last week of the Butterfly Pavilion. Apparently they're going to open a Spider Pavilion shortly, so we'll be back for that!
