Emma’s charter school families visited the Monterey Bay aquarium and we decided to drive down too. It was an excellent day once we finally got to Monterey. The aquarium was amazing and Emma had the pleasure running into friends all through out the day.
We keep ourselves busy and are always having fun. Here is what we have been up to as of late.
Doing school. Learning math, reading Greek myths, going to knitting class, doing a science block on the water cycle, listening to Little House audio stories, reading, writing, spelling, library visits. You get the idea.
Play dates, potlucks and picnics.
Celebrated the harvest moon festival with moon cakes and moon viewing.
Baking and cooking and playing cafe at home.
This ceramic paint palette by Sugarhouse Ceramics for a non plastic alternative.
Emma has her eye on the mini Rilakkuma items for her dollhouse from the Etsy shop French Figures.
This Mary Poppins inspired artwork by Polly Fern.
Got a delicious smelling candle to celebrate the beginning of September and school and some times cooler weather.
Stephanie and Justin were married at the Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo. It was an amazing place and I truly regret never going to the whole time I lived there. They handed out popcorn and candy and we watched a silent film while the Wurlitzer organ played accompanying music. Then the wedding party came in and they said their vows, the bride actually sang hers and the whole thing was precious.
I forgot to take pictures at the reception but Clover and I made sure to get in the photo booth before it got busy.
On our last day in Los Angeles Emma Clover decided to match me. She was tickled by it and I gave in since we were traveling and then it looked like we went together.
It was definitely a perfect trip to visit family. We went to the beach twice, collected shells and playing dominoes with Grandma.
We ate at the Blue Butterfly, watched Mary Poppins and got ice cream cones.
We stayed with aunt Elayne and uncle John (my siblings) and ate yummy breakfasts of peanut butter toast and strong coffee, which is my favorite thing.
We went to Stephanie and Justin’s wedding and spent lots of time with Grandma and Grandpa just hanging out and eating out a lot. 🙂
until next time….
