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).galaxy 1

Frisbee evenings at the beach, summer-izing the jeep, end of school, gym rats, rim trail at sunsetgalaxy 2

Little Dude’s sunflowers grow bigger than him, Discovery Science Center – Vitruvian Boy, window washing crew, new t-shirtsgalaxy 4

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)

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…
