And Then There Were Four…Weeks of Summer Remaining

In exactly four weeks, my oldest kiddo will be starting second grade.  Where did the summer go?  The older I get, the more I forget where the time went. Speaking of old, only 14 years plus a couple of months until I turn 50.  I’ll probably look the same as I do now because I’m pretty sure I just don’t age.  Ha. ha. ha.

The hubby and I want to take a big ol’ trip somewhere across ye land and sea.  I told him when we turn 40 and by we, I mean him because he turns 40 first, so we’d get to go a whole year earlier. Which means I should probably start saving all of the loose change I find on my morning runs (runs as in running, not as in the trotts).  Anywho, maybe 40 will be alright when it gets here.  I’m still not sure about 50 though.

Anyway, back to summer.  We’ve been hanging out with friends, hitting up the splash pad and pools any chance we get, went to San Francisco and are doing anything we can to keep cool in the warm Arizona summer.  Oh, I just realized that I didn’t share any pics from our San Francisco trip last month.  It was our first ever real long (12+ hours one way) road trip with the kiddos and it went surprisingly well.  The two year old was NOOOOOOT a fan of so much time in the van.  The older kids did great though, so two out of three ain’t bad.

The view from our hotel room.  We even got to see a wedding one night.  I looooove weddings!  I mean really, really love them.  I’m a sucker for romance I tell ya.  I should get married again.  Just for the wedding.  To the same man, obviously.  But, not a vow renewal because I’m pretty sure once you do one of those, you’re destined for divorce.  So, maybe I could just be a wedding planner?

We got to see the Full House house!

Those little hands.

I actually gave my camera to someone who offered to take our pic.  Can you see my pit stains?  I was pretty much sweating the whole time, hoping she wasn’t going to run away and steal it.  I told Jesse that he’d better prepare to sprint after her like the cops are chasing him.

These little houses are called painted ladies.  Aren’t they just lovely?  I’d buy one, but they’re several million dollars and I’m a tad short.

Love this pic.  Love my babies.

Bow-chicka-wow-wow.  Do you think I should blow this up to poster size and hang it on my bedroom wall?

We went to some forest (don’t remember the name) and saw some redwood trees.  I am still amazed by the size of those things.  Huge.

Such a blurry pic, but not a blurry memory.  I remember Noah chasing Liam to try and give him a hug and it was a fun game for them.  These are the days…

I am in such awe of the beautiful flowers and foliage.  Coming from the desert of mostly brown, this view definitely gave my retinas a workout.  I should probably look into living by the beach now.  I know the kids wouldn’t mind.  ;-)
