Bobby, Kim and I recently went to Santa Monica, where we walked along the boardwalk, strolled the beach, and watched Bobby act like a monkey. He also won a couple of stuffed monkeys, as it happens – and Miku has been enjoying their company, ever since. Bobby is the easiest person to please in the world; you’ll hear him saying “Best day ever!” at least once a day, and every meal is the best one he’s had in a long time. But on this particular day, I think it really was one of his best days ever. Give him a beach, some nice weather, and things to climb and swing on, and he’ll keep himself entertained for hours. Also, if you’re wondering why I’m recoiling from Kim’s affection, it’s because I was certain she was going to lick my face. She does that. My friends are weirdos. But so am I.

    I was in LA/Hollywood few years ago and we never quite made it to Santa Monica! We didn’t rent a car and commuted all the way from Long Beach. Lesson learned! Beautiful shots.

    I’m a CA native. I used to absolutely love swinging on those rings! When you are small, it feels like you are flying… so fun! 🙂
