On Wednesday we also go to watch Mr. Bonsai get his yearly haircut. Maddie was Uncle Dick's assistant, and they were very serious about it. Mr. Bonsai is now looking good!
Macky, Spencer, and Uncle Steve played alot of chess. Everyone won a couple of times, so I think it all went well. Spencer and Steve had to really play their best to keep Macky in check!!
We also went down to Redondo Beach a couple of times. Maddie was so brave this year and went boogie boarding for the first time!! She wasn't too happy while on the board, but was very pleased with herself after. I think she'll be a pro in no time.
I didn't take a single photo on Thanksgiving and I'm totally kicking myself. My cousin Matt came and I should have gotten a picture of him. Sorry Matt!! On Friday we all went ice skating - yes ice skating outside in LA!! Somehow, even though it was like 80 degrees, they had an ice skating rink on top of a parking structure in downtown LA. Ryan was HILARIOUS!! He was moving his feet so fast that they were a blur!! He didn't last very long, but sure tried hard. Mac had a good time and Maddie was on the ice the longest. I was really proud of all of them!
On Sunday we all went to Santa Monica to some gardens for meditation. It was just beautiful and peaceful. They plant life was prolific and diverse, the architecture was very interesting and the company was the best!
