On Monday my parents dragged me through San Francisco to MOMA where I saw dozens of people gathered around these brightly coloured squares painted on the walls. Apparently they are famous because they were painted by someone called Matisse 100 years ago! I've only been alive for 4 months - I wonder if everyone will come to see my pictures in 100 years.
The next day Mummy and Daddy and Mamie coughed all over me! They slept a lot so I think they must have been very tired! That evening, we went for a drive to the Cliff House, with wild seas and a freezing bride getting photographed. I stayed in the car because it was too cold and Mamie and Afi played me some lullabies in French and English. I think they all want me to be a polyglot, but I'm just confused! Then they went for dinner. Mummy's milk was really spicy that night. I hope she doesn't eat Thai again.
The day after that I was in the car for a very long time while Daddy looked for a wood called Muir. I can't read yet so I wasn't much help. We arrived at a campground
and I sat on Daddy's shoulders which was so much fun. Mummy tried to put me in the river but I held on tight because it was too cold. The waterfall was mesmerising though! It was so refreshing to get my nappy off, but Mummy put another one straight back on again! There was a funny skink and pretty birds... I like the forest!
Then they put me back into my uncomfortable seat in the car and the trees out the window disappeared and I could only see blue sky for a while. We were headed to a place called Sonoma - a food and whine region. It was warm though so I didn't whine at all. Mamie had a funny glass of red liquid and they gave us lots of free loaves of bread at the bakery. A man with a funny hat called Patrick Garcia joined us and started talking about the town. He said his family had been in the area for 200 years and he used to be the Mayor of the town. His great grandfather was part of the 21st Catholic Mission from New Mexico. He apparently helped make whine for the church before
the region became famous. I didn't really understand what he was talking about but everyone seemed to find him interesting. Before we drove back Mummy got an ice cream but I prefer her warm milk.
It was such a long day, and the journey home was boring because we were surrounded by fog so I couldn't see anything. I cried a lot and finally Daddy stopped the car so I could have a nice long drink!
Yesterday we went for a lovely walk in my pram along the seaside in the sun, the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. Mummy bought a big bag of these red things with green on the ends and she ate them with Daddy. I tried sucking a couple and they were very sweet! Apparently they are called strawberries. I want to get teeth so I can eat them too! Along the way, we went into this big building that had all manner of things! There were mirrors and spinning things and funny reflections, things with strings and floating balls... I was wide eyed and bamboozled by it all!! I think it was called the Exploratorium. Daddy was so excited and captivated by
it all that we even lost Mummy! It was lots of fun. I hope we can go back when I'm bigger so I can play there!
On our last night in San Francisco we joined Afi and her husband Lew at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Mummy said the food was delicious and she even tried Daddy's Margherita, but Lew and I were more interested in the basketball match on the big screen. I kept trying to see the images on the screen, but Mummy and Daddy kept turning me away from them. Why won't they let me watch this interesting thing?
Today I slept in with Mummy and then we went to a place with pretty flowers. Mummy bought lots of Australian flowers - maybe to remind her of home - but silly mummy left them behind at Afi's place! Then we packed everything into bags again... just when I thought we weren't moving anymore!! We gave away the car Daddy had bought and went into a place with lots of people. Then we gave our bags to someone and Mummy paid them lots of money. I don't know why they took away the bags with all our
clothes. At least I still have my toys!!
I just woke up and we are on another of these plane things with lots of seats and lots of people and a funny whirring sound. The first two planes I had my own bed sticking out of a wall, but on this flight there is no bed for me so I managed to stay asleep in the Ergo baby in Daddy's arms when we got on. I don't even have to wear a buckle around me! There aren't as many people so I can even have my own seat and lie down between Mummy and Daddy... this is the life!! I'm going back to sleep after my feed - it's nighttime here.
I wonder where we are going next...
