Total Randomness #1

Everything I haven’t posted, but have meant to, and may yet still …

Big Dude created a bunch of CAD drawings for Ray Rapozo, a ukulele maker in Kauai.  In return, he sent us a gorgeous ukulele.

We drove all the way to LA (something most of us are loathe to do), so Middle Dude could get one of his 39 Clues books autographed by Gordon Korman (still kicking myself for not bringing MY copy of Schooled).  The other guy at the table is the author of the Pendragon series.

Delightful “friends of history” came for a visit.  We enjoyed fish tacos and some time in Laguna …

Papa and Nana came for a visit, also, which gave a good excuse for the following activities …

Remote Car Racing (& crashing):

A trip to the beach (big waves, high tide, no access to the “lighthouse” turret)

And I forced Nana & Papa to pose for a shot (ignore those interlopers in the background).

And Spring was filled with an abundance of wildflowers …

I was composing a post like this in my mind today. I need to do about five of them. The conundrum of blogging is that when you have time to do it, you don't have much to blog about, and vice versa.

I LOVE your candy store posts!!

I love randomness...especially photo randomness! How fun to see all the great places you can get to! Love the big goggles on the little dude too...so cute! I wish I had a piece of candy from that store to enjoy as I catch up on emails!

I love Nana and Papa : ) How special was that? You know what I remember about your blog? I think I fell in love HARD with your pictures when you went to Cracker Barrell and took pictures of the candy last summer. You inspired me to take some candy pictures too. They are somewhere on a card I haven't yet uploaded. Must do that soon :)

Glad you are having fun visits : )
