|Letter from Los Angeles
||Sunday | 4 October 2015
Los Angeles, California: The goal for the
day was to just keep busy. It rained overnight and was still drizzling. We must
have worn-out the youngins yesterday - they both slept until 8 o'clock.
Since it was raining, Dave took Leo to see Hotel Transylvania
II at a nearby theater. Popcorn happened, and now Leo has decided he wants
to be a vampire. Not for Halloween. He just wants to be a vampire. Or maybe an
invisible man (both characters from the film). Whenever Leo pretends he is the invisible man, we pretend we
can't see him. Leo thinks this is the coolest thing ever.
Here is a photo of Leo as the invisible man:
While the guys were away, Lucy and I
entertained ourselves. We read a lot of books, including
a little Judaica. Who knew
Passover was celebrated on Sesame Street? Leo and Lucy
have so many books and they both love to read/look through books or have
someone read a book to them. Just like their Momma.
Lisa and Lenny were able to facetime (video chat via the mobile phone) with the
kids this afternoon. Lucy was a bit confused and wanted to jump inside the
phone. Leo posed for photos to send to his Mom (not as the invisible man).
So stinkin' cute!
Leo has been so good with Lucy this weekend, and she is fascinated by
everything he does. Her eyes are constantly following him around the room.
Leo really makes her laugh.

Not sure if the above photo is of hide-and-seek or peek-a-boo, but Lucy was all
and Lucy had pizza delivered for their dinner. Bubbe supplemented this with
fruits and veggies.
Then a sitter arrived (previously arranged by our Dear Daughter to give her
folks a few hours off - Sweet Girl!). An Uber driver was ordered via my mobile
phone, and gramps and I went out on the town... okay, we only went to a local
restaurant for a quick dinner.
Dave and I had a great time and a great meal, but hurried back to our sleeping
charges. This photo should be captioned: When the Babysitters Hire a
