38 Strips of newspaper and a couple of bones...

Where can you go that you can find:

A coy pond and fountain:


A dolphin water feature play area (not pictured)


A 15,000 gallon salt water tank with sharks, puffer fish, and other tropical fish:


Huge books as the entrance  (Merrick and Berkleigh were in awe at the "bee books"):

A huge Tyrannosaurus Rex Skeleton:

A huge tree complete with rainforest sounds:

A space ship:

A lighthouse and a night sky that changes color:

And a green screen with a video camera to put you and your family into different worlds?:

The Cerritos Library, of course!
IT WAS AWESOME. 
It is only 20 minutes from our house (which is 20 minutes farther than our closest library), but I think we will frequent this library.


It had cute little tables with lamps to read at and millions of books!


The Cerritos Library apparently has an AMAZING story time... while we were there, we found out that there is a waiting list to get a storytime slot. (Crazy!) I put our names in the waiting list for the next storytime... hope we get picked! Cross your fingers for us. :) 

I wanna go back. Anyone want to come?

You may be wondering what 38 strips of newspaper has to do with the library...
Well, it has no correlation, except that it was part two of Fun Day 38. The twins are making their first pinata.

We prepared the string to tie the balloon up for better paper mache-ing techniques:

Ahh, finally ready:


Gettin' down and dirty learning a skill that will help them out in all aspects of life...



The goop: My philosophy, you didn't have fun if you didn't get messy. 

Notice Berkleigh's dainty finger taps. She wanted nothing to do with the mess.

As we speak the pinata is hanging to dry outside. Tomorrow step two: Paint and fill.... and we all know what happens after that!

what an awesome library! I would have never guessed. our library (concord) is SO lame and so is the story time.

That is one fun library! I also love Berkleigh's adorable curls.

Looks like you guys continue to have a lot of fun without us. :) I can't wait to get in on some of that. I also am excited to see how the pinata turns out.
