Atlantis Play Park

There is a park in Garden Grove that I remember going to as a has a big stone dragon slide and a pirate ship. I couldn't remember where it was so I asked my oldest friend, Wendy, whom I have known since kindergarden and whom I gone with to said park. She remembered it too, but also could not recall the name. So she emailed her mom, Judy, who is currently living in Thailand and *viola!* she remembered the name: Atlantis Play Park.
The dragon slide is still there, though a bit smaller than I remember......but the kids are having a blast as I write this and I am enjoying wathing them have the same experience I had so many years ago.

The Artiste

Our neighbors had a birthday party at the park and somehow I was assigned the job of face actually turned out to be a lot of fun, and I see a great deal of face painting in our future! A sample of the results:

A Whole New World

So. Ava can read. She read 43 pages of "Green Eggs and Ham" all by herself last night. If she doesn't recognize a word she can sound it out. If she can't sound it out she can spell it out for me or Brian. Clearly she is a genius.
I can't express how excited I am for her. She has the key to 1,000 lands, endless skills, all knowledge. The begininng of a great journey.
Bon Voyage!
