Piedmont pool was so nice today. They have three pools for kids and we like the medium size and baby pool. Just deep enough for my non-swimmer and her friend to have fun and be safe.
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.
July has always been my favorite month of the year. Probably because its my birthday month but also warm sun and fresh fruit! I am enjoying the few warm days that Berkeley has and savoring them. We hardly ever say, “Wow its so hot today.” I so wish that there was a beach closer to home so I could go flop down in the sand tomorrow (and I could get comfortable in this sand, since I am seven months pregnant) and bathe in the sunlight.
Loving lots and lots of fresh fruit! Mangos, apricots, pluots, plums, peaches, blueberries, cantaloupe and bananas mostly. Pesky plastic packaging keeps me from buying lots of strawberries and such. Love cherries too when I remember to bring a bag. maiki brings pyrex containers to the market to fill with blueberries. He is so smart.
Found cute red shoes that just scream summer. They may or may not be comfortable but affordable enough to take the risk.
Visiting friends in Santa Cruz next weekend. I love that place! No Boardwalk for me this time. I just want to eat a caramel apple from the pier and walk along listening to the sea lions with my love. Just walking along Pacific makes me happy.
Receiving packages almost daily to the cottage. Jason gave us a gift certificate to Amazon and the things that I picked out for baby came in three shipments. I also got a maternity/nursing/boppy like pillow, an Uppercase magazine (!), Sakura Bloom sling, and soon to be arriving, striped towels. Yay for fun mail!
Sushi lunch at the park.
Laying in the grass.
Playing Mario Party on the DS.
Yay for summer!
