our first summer here in north coast Cali was kind of slow and random. we had a summer to do list and pretty much did MOST of them.


Can you spot the banana slugs?

Bike ride to the beach on a foggy morning. It was pretty fun we built a “teepee” and spent about couple hrs at the beach and an hr each way back and forth.

Ava orders smoothie while in her swimming pool 🙂


Then right in the middle of summer, the boys left to Kosrae to visit family. and while they were gone, we spent most time reading, baking cobbler, skateboarding, meeting friends at the park, crafting, going to the store and just hanging out.
