He helped me collect all kinds of leaves, twigs, and acorns, and I was envisioning decorations for the house. But then Liam systematically dropped each and every leaf, twig, and acorn out the side of the wagon on the way home.
But it was still a beautiful afternoon.

Sunday morning we went to the San Diego Zoo just the three of us. Liam had a fun time looking at all of the animals, all the while with his "serious observer" face.
But I think this monkey will always be Liam's favorite.
The hat didn't last long.

We finally made it to Pomona Friday evening, where Molly and Andres were performing at the LA County Fair. We stopped by the hotel where my grandprents were staying for the weekend and were treated to a nasty blowout diaper from Liam. All down his legs. All over the carseat. We were using disposables for the trip, and they just don't work as well as cloth. So, he took a bath, ad we each took turns in the shower, and it was great to be off the road.
We all spent the night in Molly and Andres' trailer, which slept all 7 of us comfortably. Liam slet with me and Gabriel, and I discovered that he moves around in his sleep. Alot.
The next morning we went to Molly and Andres' co-ed bridal shower at IHOP. Here's the entire group:
We all spent the afternoon at the Fair, where it was very very hot. More ice cream was definitely needed.
The happy couple
It was so good to see Rachael.
One of the attractions at the fair was the african safari made entirely out of plants and flowers.
Here's Gabriel's GQ pose in front of the giraffes (also made out of plants...)
