Weekend outing: storytime at babyGap

PeterRabbit reading in Corte Madera at babyGap

Whitney is reading a modern twist on a classic children’s story as part of a great big awesome nationwide event to raise awareness and BOOKS for kids who otherwise wouldn’t have them. Awesome, right?

Our buddy Charlie, who has been rocking a ‘stache since […]

Oooh, Ubooly!


My kids are dying for a pet, but we are not historically animal people. I think that’s why they are so obsessed with stuffed animals.
