Well, today we spent some of the time at the park - with the kids just playing in the sand and the grass (there was an area for beach-volley-ball - hence the sand....). They spent a lot of time poaking around a gopher-hole. we also got to see the gophers (from a different hole).
we also bought a cheap glockenspeil (a type of xylophone) and some kazoo's. They loved both of them!
