last weekend we went up to l.a. papa had to play and the babies got to spend time with their grandparents. i got so lucky to be part of such beautiful family, my kids have the best grandmother!  marta (grandma) took niko to the park and shopping while raoul and i took luna with us to have dinner, we went to cobras and matadors on beverly blvd. i really enjoyed our time out with luna. on the way there i spotted this super cute and tiny shop, pygmy hippo. we went in and found the cutest little vintage, handmade gifts, jewelry, toys, all jam packed into 100 square feet. if you live or visit the los angeles area, try to make a stop here. the most unique gifts at really affordable prices. we bought a pair of vintage mushroom salt and pepper shakers and a vintage stuffed horse for luna. and the owner of the store, Emi, is super sweet and plays the cutest 1950's music. definitely a shop i will return to! Pygmy Hippo Shoppe is located at 306 North Stanley Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90036
for all my out of the country readers, Emi is working on an online store! check back at

this is what we got Luna as one of her birthday gifts ;)
