A Field Trip

It was a scooter ride to the library.
But calling it a field trip is more exciting.

Boxes and Jello

A little of what's filled our summer days.

Jazz in the Park

(he's dancing if you can't tell)

Random jazz groups perform at local parks here on Fridays during the summer.
This week was our first time going and it was most enjoyable.

We don't know the first thing about surfing on water.
But thanks to Danna's board, they're now pros on land.

Met Danna, her kids, and Xochitl at San Onofre Beach on Wednesday.

In addition to sand surfing, they got creative with beach mats.
A house for a mother and a princess.

A tree trunk.


We would like to thank Jones for getting potty trained
so we could use his new slip 'n slide.


This is Moose.
Moose's owners are David & Krissie.
They are our friends from NC.
Who live around here now.
Which makes us happy.

This Time We Took the Project Home

Binoculars courtesy of Lowe's Build & Grow

Little People, Big World

Little person.
(why does he really look like a midget in this picture?)

Little person found a little house.

Little person's little sister passed by and spied the house.

Came to inspect.

And made it her own.

Meeting their new cousin.

They were okay leaving her at Brent & Errin's,
but I kind of want to keep her.

Arts & Crafts

I LOVE doing art projects with my kids!
It's so calming.
I get happy seeing how much they love it,
and how proud they are of their works of art.

K only one of those sentences is true.

Also From April

Jason & his siblings

All Jason's nieces & nephews

The ENTIRE family

These are some of the pro pics from Jason & Candace's wedding.
Their photographer was Candace's friend, Cami Dunn.
She did a really good job.
Don't even know her but I like her.

Erica babysat the kids while we were at Jason & Candace's wedding dinner.
She arranged for a visit from a Storm Trooper.
The boys liked.
Sally not so much.

Officially American

We finally got a grill.
Just in time.
The weather this week has been warm, so it's better to be outside than in (we have no AC).
I'm not complaining.
I'll take 85° and no air conditioner over 118° with (sorry Arizona people).

4th Weekend



Car Ferry from Balboa to Newport

Newport Beach Ferris Wheel

Pre-Firework Bubbles thanks to Errin

Firework Viewing from the Golf Course

I recommend everything above.
Especially the merman.
The Ferry and Ferris Wheels were fun, but Newport Beach on July 4 is NUTS.
Glad we were back here for fireworks.
Would've been perfect if Justin didn't get stuck with duty.
