Syd participated as part of the stage crew for the school production of Mary Poppins.  She did a pretty good job of getting the curtains open and shut as needed.  The show runs for 4 performances.

Syd's buddy, Jesske, was also part of the stage crew.  They got to participate in the closing song, Let's Go Fly A Kite, with the full cast.

Here she is backstage holding her kite prop next to the curtain ropes.

Golden Gate Park

Sunday, May 11, 2008

We spent this sunny Mother's Day afternoon in Golden Gate Park. After we listened to The Golden Gate Park Band play some tunes, we walked over to Stow Lake. Syd found an interesting palm frond that she turned into a hair band along the way.

Here we are at what Syd has dubbed Sydney's Fort in the Speedway Meadow area.

Baby Ish

Saturday, May 3, 2008

Syd had an outing at Blue Moon Riding School in Half Moon Bay with her friend, Jesske. She fell in love with Baby Ish while there.

Jesske had her riding lesson on her favorite horse, Cherokee, while Syd waited on the sidelines. Afterwards they groomed and adored the horses.
