You can see her doll "New York Minnie" sitting next to her. Minnie is one of her favorite friends, and has been traveling everywhere with us lately. "Where's Minnie?!?!" is a question you really don't want to hear in our house unless you know the answer. : )

Juni came down with a fever on Friday morning. She was sick all day Friday and Saturday. We stayed indoors with the exception of one long walk with our little family around the neighborhood. We walked up some hills with her in the backpack carrier. Bob and I both shared the load, but I wore the back pack more often because of her preference for Mommy especially when she is not feeling well. The fresh air did us all good and it was a very nice time.

Thursday night Juni and I took a short drive to Mill Valley Public Library. What a nice place! It is surrounded by redwood trees and it is a beautiful building inside with tall, wood lined ceilings. We went there to borrow a book-on-CD that I wanted for a book club I'm joining. The actual book is checked out of all the nearby libraries, so I decided to listen to it read by the author to start. While we were there, I brought Juni to the children's section and she loved it. She took book after book off the shelves and flipped through the pages. I picked some and she picked some to take home with us. I think we brought home 8 or 9 picture books. After leaving the library, we went to the park and playground next door to the library. It is a beautiful redwoods grove and the playground had some fun and new-to-Juni activities to play. She befriended a couple of boys and had a great time climbing and going down the slide with them. I am pleased with how we had so much fun on a Thursday evening without spending any money (other than gas). Public libraries are awesome! As are public parks. We are lucky.
