I was drawing last night and Zoe sat down with me and asked for some white paper. She did four drawings in a row and told me this story as she finished each one. It's her first book! The scribbly marks are the words.
|The Princess and her unicorn went to...|
|the castle to the see the Prince. But one day...|
|...and there was a big, fire-breathing dragon and the Princess... she got darker and darker. And he got fire and he's gonna get fire on the Princess.|
|...and now the Princess is so happy to see the Prince in her castle and her lovely pony, too.|
Zoe has a cookbook that grandpa sent her. And she has a couple of aprons. But she does not have a chef's hat - so when she wanted one last night I suggested that she write a note to grandpa and ask for one.
This is the inside of the note with a picture of the chef's hat.

On Sunday I had to go to a CPR/First Aid class for 5 hours [woohoo!] but then we went out to dinner at one of our most favorite restaurants - Pomodoro. It's a tiny little Italian/Spanish place in Seattle where the owner is the chef and the kitchen is basically in the dining room and his 9 year old daughter took us to our table and his wife opened our bottle of wine. It was delicious! I had veal canneloni and Pete had linguini with prawns and Zoe ate 5 pieces of bread and some penne pasta.
She wore this little dress [it is finally summer weather here] and I took a few pictures before we went. I bought these big paperboard letters and painted them purple. I want to do a little photo shoot with her & her name at the beach or in the woods. I haven't taken a lot of pictures since I've been at work every day and we don't go to many exciting places on the weekend since I am doing our errands & housework then. But we are moving into our 16 hours of daylight schedule, so maybe we'll have more time for fun soon.
