Zuzu is Lauren’s dog’s name . . . who recently passed away.   Lauren’s wedding week in Hawaii  both went snorkeling and the butterfly fish were abundant !!  The zeppelin is an even a bigger favorite doodle in mo’s school notebooks.  This one is done in the same style as those doodles.  Using a zeppelin has more meaning because there are 2 large blimp hangers in Orange County.  Which mo rode by on training rides when Lauren was very little.  One of her riding partners was a marine who worked in the hangers.  Lauren’s dad ran through them during one of Orange County’s road races !  And yes mo like’s the group Led Zepplin and still owns their album and she means album . . .  explain that one !!! (smile)
