I think this summer we've fallen into a good routine. Can't take the busy away, even in summer, but there's been some down time and a few fun things thrown in as well.
Just after school got out Morgan had her first dance recital. She loved taking Jazz this year and will continue on next year too.
Garrett finished the spring soccer season with a 3 day tournament in Turlock. If you've never been to Turlock, it's hot and really not a summertime destination (and probably not a wintertime for that matter), but they have built some awesome soccer fields-kind of field of dreams style. Anyway it was an exciting tournament and Garrett scored two goals.
Morgan headed off to church camp. She had a blast and can't wait to go back next year. "The boys" and I had a little daytime excursion. We drove to Jack London Square in Oakland and took the ferry across the bay to the Ferry Building in San Francisco. I had never been there before and would love to go back and wander a bit more slowly-boys are not wanderers :-/.
But boys will not turn down a good meal and we really enjoyed the food at Mijito.
Then we walked a mile down to Pier 39 and while the big boys wandered off, Jack and I watched the sea lions and then rode the top story of the merry go round.
And then we were able to catch the ferry from here and head back home.
Jack went to Aloha Camp for a week too.
We already have lots of things on the calendar for July. Still need to find a day to take Jack to see some dinosaurs :-)
