Busy Busy!

May has been a busy and fun month. We started off with two birthday parties for Wyatt to attend. Then we had Mat's birthday and our 12th Anniversary (time flies!). Mat has also been working more hours now that we're in Ice Cream Season.

On May 22nd I took the boys to Maker Faire. It was a lot of fun. Next year all four of us need to go so we can see more of the booths. It was a challenge with a stroller, there were a lot of people there. We did get to see Adam Savage from Mythbusters speak...which Wyatt was excited about. I got to see Jenny Hart from Sublime Stitching.

These are the heads from Doggy Diners since torn down.

Wyatt scaled this sculpture only to find out he couldn't reach the pedals to operate the wings. It was still cool, though.

Yesterday we took a road trip to Santa Cruz.

Boats to rent.

Lifeguard station.

View of the boardwalk from the pier.

Obligatory corn dog and later some salt water taffy.
Then we drove north and stopped at a beach...

Finally...a Grill!

The moving Gods were on our side this time...and WE inherited a grill. Our next-door neighbors were kind enough to pass along their grill and small table. So today, after 9 months, we finally cooked out!

Last weekend the kids and I walked to Osage Park. If you click on the link you'll see a couple of pictures of the roses. I have never seen such beautiful roses in person-and so HUGE!

We then walked home along Iron Horse Trail, stopping at an elementary school playground.

Then a special stop at Burger King...a 6 mile walk makes you hungry!

These Rosea Eucalyptus trees line Crow Canyon Road, and are a new favorite. Their bark appears anywhere from red to purple to black and they have very cool flowers.

Hopefully this weekend is just as nice!
