I spent four hours on a peaceful Sunday with Cliff and Lynn, documenting their life with their first baby, Ella. She’s four months old and is adorable beyond words.
To bear witness to a dream coming true; to document a couple getting their heart’s desire after so many years; to see a baby so loved is to be present at a miracle as vast and as commonplace as any.
The Neighbors is a band made up of our neighbors and their guitar teacher at Sierra Madre Music, and they played at Pinocchio’s last night. The place was packed and the crowd was raucous. The band performed songs by The Jam, Elvis Costello and Neil Young, and Katie rocked One Way or Another by Blondie.
Pinocchio’s Pizza is a local restaurant on Lake Ave and Rio Grande that serves pizza, pasta, wings and cold beer. It’s great for families and it’s become a Bungalow Heaven neighborhood hangout. They have a pretty good happy hour too.
