Be My Valentine

I know people get bummed out this time of year because they don’t have a Valentine… So I thought I would ask you all (and by “all” I mean the 3 people who read this) to be my Valentine!  There you go!

My sister invited us to do something pretty cool this weekend, we went to the Chocolate Lovers Class at The Huntington Library.  It is only for kids (but they each get to bring an adult) and you need to check the calendar for the next class, but I know Lucy and Bing highly recommend it.  Not only do you learn about the tree that yields the beans that result in the chocolate you stuff in your face, but the kids get a chance to fashion their own bars.

Even if you don’t like chocolate I highly recommend visiting the Huntington Library, it truly is one of the most beautiful places in Los Angeles.  If you have a chance (and the money $30 adult/$15 kids) try the Rose Garden Tea Room, it is a really fun treat for young and old alike.

Lucy has been continuing to get better and better at basketball… It makes me happy to see how much she enjoys it.  She had a great game this week, making a basket, a bunch of free throws and grabbing rebounds.

And at work, we have the debut Run River North album coming out.  They are really great kids and super talented… Check out this video when they were surprised with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live

OK, I think that’s it for now.  Have an amazing Valentine’s Day and I will blog at you again soon.

Rock On, Jack
