Marine world or Six Flags or Discovery Kingdom.

My school choir participated in a festival (we placed 1st!) and took a trip to a nearby amusement park afterward. Technically its now called Six Flags Discovery Kingdom but I knew it when it was called Marine World a long time ago.

I am REALLY ridiculously proud of this photo! The little guy was sitting right by the glass just waiting for a photo.

It was fun, we didn't really get to ride very many rides (which was fine with Linus) because there were ridiculously long lines. Plus I'm not super fond of roller coasters. We did see a dolphin/whale show and we saw a few animals! Oh, I also got my 1st sunburn of 2008.

The gem fair!

Twice a year the gem fair comes to the local fair grounds. My mom and I always go. Linus accompanied us this year.

He had a lot of fun looking at all the beads and gems and even picked out a special gift for his mom. Photography is strictly forbidden in the building, but I knew had to quickly snap a few pictures before we left.

I whipped Linus and the camera out of my bag and they were back in there before anyone realized a flash had gone off! Linus had a great time wandering among the booths, inspecting the various fossils and beads and of course, negotiating a lower price on everything! We even received a free beaded ring because one man said he liked Linus. =]

Apple Blossom Parade

Whew! What a busy weekend! Linus and I barley spent any time at home this past weekend. It seemed like we were always running from one thing to the next.
Every year there is a parade is a town near mine, Sebastapol, called the Apple Blossom parade. And every year my dance studio dances in the parade. The route is about 3 miles of strait dancing in the sun the whole way. Luckily Linus got to ride a long in my mom's purse so he did not suffer the horrible blisters that I did. The picture was taken right after I finished the parade hence the red face.

As a treat, we went to Screamin' Mimi's for ice cream. That place has the best ice cream, hands down. Linus sampled some of their rose ice cream (it tastes the way roses smell!) and shared my order. Strawberry rose, mango and raspberry sorbet in a waffle cone!

More pictures and adventures from this weekend to follow soon!

Meet Linus!

Professor Linus is a penguin visiting California as part of the Little visitor swap on crastster. This is his second little visitor swap, having already visited New Mexico last round. He arrived here from his home in Massachusetts about a week ago.
