Love Letter to the Library

It's funny the things you learn by having kids. I learned that the public library is the greatest place in the world. It started with story time programs for my baby, then it was family movie nights (where free refreshments were served and movies we'd missed in the theater were played on a big screen), then we'd grow tired of the ninety or so children's books we had around the house and the library saved us again!

It was there across the street in Bariloche with a massive English book section to help Mike through the chickenpox and me through my hospital stay and now that we're back in the states we wander the city and venture into all the libraries we can find. It helped us last summer again with their abundance of children's activities and the kids won tickets to the Padres games through the summer reading program. So, of course, yesterday we headed down to the Mission Valley Branch to see their latest offerings, the Japanese drummers in the children's courtyard...

Here's Naomi before the concert with Marshall (our toy voyager from Prague)...



Here is the group playing, they're called "Naruwan Taiko" and they were really awesome...





After the show Phoebe went onstage and got a lesson from a band member...





Here's Naomi with Marshall by one of the drums.



Definitely a great way to spend a beautiful Saturday!

Nice pics, enjoying your blog

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
