A few weeks ago, when we were between heat waves, we took the kids over to Griffith Park for some horseback riding.  The venue is great, we've been there before.  But this time, Ahgoo got to ride the slow horse all on her own!  I was so proud of her.  For $3, you get to ride around the tracks twice.  Buzz, of course, wanted to ride the fast horse.  Ahgoo was pretty stoic during her entire ride.  She looked poised and in control.  But after she got off, I asked if she enjoyed it and she replied, "No..."  Haha, she's such a strange little girl.  Buzz rode twice. 
 
I was more excited about her ride than she was!


Ahgoo looked so poised and grown up!



I was so proud that she rode around twice all on her own!


My little princess.

Buzz loved the fast horse.


Having a great time!

Last year we learned that peacocks molt.  Well, we thought that they do so in the fall time frame...which means September to October right?  Well, turns out that they molt much earlier, in August to be eact!  We discovered this quite by accident, on one of our weekend walks to the local library!  On that day, we took Toby for a pinic at the park by the library.  When we were there, a peacock strolled by.  He has already lost much of his tail.  We picked up several beautiful feathers that were just lying on the grass!  We were so lucky because we saw a few groups of people wandering the neighborhood in search of these amazing feathers.  

So what else happens in August besides peacocks molting??  First day of kindergarten for Buzz!!!  Oh my, what a big day.  But he has been so ready for kindergarten that he was not the least bit nervous.  His pre-school models their curriculum after kindergarten so the transition was easy for Buzz.  After the first day, he already made three new friends.  We're happy that he loves school so much.  As for Ahgoo, she was not a bit phased by the fact that her brother is not at her school anymore.  
 
Toby was in a happy mood to join us for a nice walk!


We had an unexpected visitor at the picnic.

Off he goes.

Our feathers!!

I also decorated our guest bathroom with some feathers.

Before we jump into September, I have to show you all of the things we've been doing at the end of August!  Mr. BAW celebrates a birthday so we headed down to our Aunt's house where she watched the kids, put us all up for the night, and even made us a delicious breakfast of ebleskivers, a Danish pancake dish.  

I took Mr. BAW to the Selanne Steak Tavern in Laguna Beach.  I had given Mr. BAW a few restaurants to choose from and he, of course, picked a steak place.  But neither of us knew that it is actually the hockey player "The Finnish Flash" Teemu Selanne's restaurant!  Mr. BAW realized it when he spotted a replica of the Stanley Cup inside the restaurant.  The dinner was excellent!  The steaks were awesome and the place is beautiful.  We had a wonderful time over dinner.  

Due to the restaurant's location, we were able to take a nice stroll along Laguna Beach before dinner.  Overall, it was a wonderful weekend.  The kids got a yummy spaghetti meal and a walk down to see a mini zebra at the local stable while we were at dinner.  
 
I had about four of these for breakfast...at least.


Beautiful Laguna Beach.
