A little date that involved a walk about and having a beer at a new to us place.
Emma and maiki went on a school field trip to an aircraft carrier. I showed up for lunch and took this picture.
Emma and I attended the Flax birthday party and had so much fun drawing with the Posca paint pens.
About to leave for Portugal.
On a walk by the lake.
Warmer weather has finally arrived in the bay area so we have been visiting the beaches in Alameda.
Emma is growing so tall! Here she is next to maiki for comparison.
We finally went out on a date for my bithday.
We went to Almond & Oak. I will return for the foccacia.
We took Gene on a grocery tour of Berkeley. Monterey Market was the true winner.
July is concerts in the park, non stop swimming pools, learning to ride a bike, park afternoons, beach days, garden visits and celebrating friends.
Summer vacation so far has been action packed. We began with our L.A. trip and that was so special. Our family hiked in the redwoods and took trips to San Francisco for the Cal Acamedy of Sciences and Japantown. Next Emma had a three week stint at A.C.E. camp (half day) with Hacienda Peralta. The 4th was spent watching the Oakland Municipal Band in Lakeside park. We visited the Alameda County fair and Emma has swim lessons for all of July!
The next month will hopefully include some warm weather for free swim, homeschooler park days and a more relaxed vibe. Sundays afternoons for concerts in the park are the leisurely style we live for. I am looking forward to lizarding a bit and laying down on a blanket to just look up into the trees.
