The concerts in the park have begun and we are so excited. Listening to the Oakland municipal band is such a special activity for our family.

Also the nearby green monster climber has been repaired.

We went out to breakfast and visited stores in Emeryville last week. maiki was happy to find Jolt cola at BevMo. He was so jazzed.

Judy got a hammock for her backyard and we tried it out. First picture is Judy reading a Beatrix Potter book to Emma. It was so sweet to hear them discussing “The Two Bad Mice.” There is a lot of older language and Judy gave great explanations to Emma’s many questions. Next I laid in the hammock and I finally get what all the fuss is about. It was so relaxing!

Emma Clover’s room has a great sunny spot for us to lizard in. She likes to place her sequin purse in this spot and make her room sparkle all over. It is quite beautiful!

It is the time of year that the Oakland Municipal Band plays in the park. The band stand is in a nice spot in Lakeside park between Children’s Fairyland and the Gardens. Today we set up our picnic near the band and stayed long after they were through. It was a lovely afternoon listening to music and Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast, enjoying our cantaloupe and avocado, sweets and tea, and resting in the grass on a warm sunny afternoon.
