It’s Already Autumn?

Why yes.  Yes it is.  Miss Clarita’s birthday fell on the Autumnal Equinox this year.  We took her to do her absolute favorite thing: ride the gorgeous carousel at the Santa Monica Pier.   I am kicking off this post with a photo snapped on Main Street on our way to the carousel.  An ethnographic moment of California culture to be sure:

(The sign reads “You’re Absolutely Perfect”)

And they’re off:

Clara got to ride for free in honor of her birthday.

We resolved to take her on as many go-rounds as she could stand without turning green.

Birthday Ice Cream with sprinkles at Soda Jerk’s.

We actually started out at the Griffith Park Pony Rides, making our way over to Santa Monica:

Nibsy got a fast one!

All the pretty horses……..

The old Muni! We tried to take the train at Travel Town but they had taken a lunch break. so off to the OTHER train at Griffith Park………

The train was so packed we had to sit separately.  Here’s a photo Nibsy took. Someone got photo bombed here, but I’m not sure who it was.

Not a bad day out.  Now if only I could adjust to my baby being three………
