Emma and her new car!

So, Emma turns 16 and her heart turns to.....a new car! She sees this one on the lot.


"Oh Daddy, don't I look perfect in it??"

"Hmmm...well, yes but let's look at the important things. Good safety record, the price is right, well, I ....."

"YAY!!! Thank you Daddy!!!"

And look at that smile, folks!

"Bye, Daddy! I have to show all the girls! I promise I'll be safe!"

"Daddy, it's okay, you still have me!"

"You're right, son, I sure do!" he said with a smile on his face.

This is one of our favorite places in San Diego! The foot of First Street and Orange Avenue in Coronado.

A beautiful day for a picnic!

But the birds are my friends!

A picnic blanket...

Meet Woods!

Hi everyone! My name is Woods and Mr. Ryan adopted me and gave me to Molly for a Valentine's present....awwww!

See, here's my official adoption papers, er tag....

Today was super fun because the Tillamook "Loaf Of Love" tour came to San Diego (the La Mesa Ralph's, to be exact!) This is their Volkswagen bus - it is only 9 feet, 6 inches long!

I even got to sit on it (since I only weigh 5.25 ounces!)

This is way cool!

The Tillamook people said that this baby goes an amazing 45 miles an hour at top speed!

Wouldn't it be fun seeing this going down the freeway (in the slow lane, of course!)

The nice people gave us two buttons as souvenirs!

I LOVE their license plate! They have Yum1, Yum2 and Yum3.

They're located in Tillamook County Oregon. Maybe I'll go to their factory someday!

Since Miss Sarah was at her friend Julie's birthday party, Molly and Ryan went to dinner at her favorite restaurant Tartine's in Coronado. Here I am going along for the ride (and reminding Molly that it rained just enough to mess up her windows!)

This was our view after dinner. We walked over to the Ferry Landing Park. This is one of the most beautiful views in all of San Diego. The skyline looks lovely all lit up!

Molly let me play on the beach for a little while.

Then I decided I wanted to go somewhere so I thought it would be fun to climb in the mailbox to find a new adventure!

Molly didn't like that idea at all. She said she'd miss me terribly. That made me want to stay with her and the family!

We got back to our car and whew! I'm glad they stopped enforcing the parking meters at 6:00 p.m.!

The Teddy Bear Show 2010

Today I got to go to the San Diego Teddy Bear Show! It was held in Mission Valley at the Sheraton Hotel. Molly got to see her dear friends Janis and Krys who traveled quite a distance to take part in the fun! There were three rooms filled with bears and dolls and so much more! Come along with me!

Here we are - oh goody, oh goody!

This bear was kind enough to offer us directions!

He was a big feller but such a nice and helpful bear!

After Molly paid my entrance fee, the kind man stamped my hand so I could go wherever I'd like!

He even gave me his microphone to make a few announcements. I wasn't nervous - well, not too much!

Oh my stars! Look at this big tiger!! He looks so fearsome but he was really just a giant pussycat!

He took even took me on a ride around the room!

There were some very lovely bears at this table. I stayed and talked with them for a while.

Such a strong resemblance, don't you think?

When I got tired of walking around, I took a break. Ryan let me use his iPod touch to check my e-mail.

Molly adopted some new friends! Oh I am so happy to bring them home to meet their new family!

This young feller was handmade with love by a bear company called "Whatabear". The man who set up the adoption was so very nice! He was glad that Molly was bringing him to such a lovely home!

This is Mozzarella! Isn't she a cutie patootie?

I even got something out of the deal - a brand new sweater!

And such a grand lady indeed! She even has shoes, something you only see on the more fancy bears!

This little guy is very, very little but he's got a big heart!

And I simply couldn't come home without something for Lancelot! I bought him this fun teddy bear vest!

We had such a lovely time. We can't wait for the show to return to San Diego in August and next January!
