yup, it was recital time again. although this is her third or fourth (i've lost track) one, so she's pretty used to it by now. she was happy to sit next to her BFF, who was performing for the first time.
she played her two songs well, and happily accepted her medal and certificate at the end of the show.
after a quick breakfast with the hub, we headed out to pasadena to join the celebration for weezermonkey's mini-me. it's still amazing that she's already a year old. the venue was colorfully and whimsically decorated, which is exactly what one would expect out of mama monkey.
look! a balloon artist! she was awesome, too - perfect balloon sculptures and super friendly to everyone.
the bean and mini cee were quite enthralled with her.
i was rather happy with my thai iced coffee myself.
while i didn't eat any of it (duh), i did think that the bird sculpted from an apple was pretty cool.
have i ever mentioned how much the bean adores babies? she was so excited to meet mini weemo.
well, i was pretty excited too. i hadn't actually seen her since she was teeny-tiny.
cake time! and yeah, i'd done cookies too - shaped like bees. for the baby's bee-day. get it? the cake that weemo's cousin made for the party was adorable, and together they were just perfect.
the guest of honor liked the cake too. well, we think so.
back at the table, we were laughing at the drawing the bean had done of her tablemates - lilcee and winnie's husbands.
on the way home, someone was wiped out from the flurry of activity that day.
