Living in the Moment: July Edition
The Teen passed this quote and immediately said, “That sounds like an SAT essay prompt …” Obligatory long-armed selfie, just to prove I was there. This grin can only mean that the Teen is doing something clever and devious and probably politically incorrect.

An overnighter to San Jose, book club = Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell, Cafe Cubano …. simply yum (please don’t remind me it’s a giant cup of half and half with just a little bit of espresso).
Frisbee evenings at the beach, summer-izing the jeep, end of school, gym rats, rim trail at sunset
Beginning of summer vacation = trip to our favorite dentist, June gloom, Ultimate Frisbee (yes, broken-ankled Big Dude is back to playing … cautiously), work on workshop, Squire’s Tales = fun reads
Little Dude’s sunflowers grow bigger than him, Discovery Science Center – Vitruvian Boy, window washing crew, new t-shirts
all pics from Samsung Galaxy 3

Frisbee Golf – SoCal Version
Not to be confused with the Spokane Version of Big Dude’s “back-in-the-day”. (this course was a mere fraction of the size & splendor of that course and had exactly NONE of the gorgeous flowers. tho it did have some cute tiles)
Throwing it down Tron-Style… Goal: to hit center post inside the rope pyramid… There may or may not have been some frustration … My favorite shot of the day. Yes, it was my dumb idea. And yes, I did get conked on the head. Back at tee one. The end.

I spent the weekend mostly not getting out of my pj’s. I caught up on a few months of our family album. Which made me realize just how much of June dropped thru the cracks without me blogging our life. Including this glorious morning we spent tidepooling with Nana & Papa…
