Joe would love to visit all the stadiums with these two at his side.

I love that nature and being in the outdoors is a place my kids feel at home. The first time I slept in a tent was probably as an adult when I worked with Americorps. I remember being as afraid as my students. I don’t want my kids to be scared.I can feel the slow fading of summer, just like this sunset
I am trying hard to enjoy the view and not think too much about tomorrow or the fall.It will get busy, be different, and involve a whole lot of change for this one family.
But we will lean on each other and that way together, we grow stronger.
I really hate the phrase but it best describes the final meet up of Olivine with her friend Nora.
We had to reschedule a few times but today finally worked out, so we hit the splash pad before it was too crowded
and then they played dress up: princesses, monsters, and doctors. I wish I would have snapped more pictures.
The boys went camping without us and as soon as they left Olivine started singing “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.
It was perfect that cousins came to visit and play at the bay yesterday.
They dug and filled holes,
splashed and kicked around.
These are the moments I hope she remembers
full of sunshine and smiles.
We had a ladies meet up last night (after Joe went to his AYSO soccer coach meeting)
with drinks and snacks
inspired by the “put a bird on it” episode from Portlandia.
You can’t go wrong.
Thank you for the backyard ambiance Stella.
Jenny, we missed you and are praying for your nest.
We were visiting friends in Glendale and this was the meeting spot.Of course, I couldn’t resist.Sometimes I think I have an internal compass directing me towards treats.This machine dispenses cupcakes!
In an instant-voila! Like magic.We ordered peanut butter chocolate and were not disappointed.Sprinkles, Thank you for a Sunday surprise. I hope you build one in Long Beach.
