Grooming the Narwhal

I stayed with Mabel on Saturday night when her parents went out with friends for Daddy's birthday. His birthday dahlias came home fresh on Saturday morning from Ferry Building Farmers' Market.

The plush narwhal appeared here before, when it emerged from its original packaging.

The photos on Saturday were few and poor. We stayed too busy reading books and drawing pictures, playing with toy food, eating real food, organizing bath-and-pajamas, then getting settled (with many stories and songs) in the new toddler bed.

Meanwhile Daddy's milestone was noted in the greater world of Saturday night San Francisco,

 First in the form of cocktails at Bix.

Then (below) in North Beach at Tosca.
