Hello, summer!

Summer is finally here even though it hasn't felt like it the last few days. It has been rainy and overcast and cool...but we are taking advantage of the sunshine when it comes out! I am a little scared that it is June and I have to go back to work in July. We are going to enjoy every moment because it is going too fast. Our summer has started!

Zippy and I finally took the time to plant our garden. We planted tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, peppermint, spearmint, lettuce, corn, bell peppers carrots, jalepenos, basil, corn, and we are still looking for some cilantro. Yum, yum!!

One of my bestest friends, Kristie, from high school in Missouri came out to visit with her aunt and her mom. The four of us used to do girlie trips to St. Louis and Chicago during the first summers after high school. When I moved out to California, they came to visit(about 7 years ago). This time, they came out to meet Grevin for a girlie trip reunion. The weather looked like it was going to be terrible but we headed to the coast anyways. It turned out to be a beautiful day! It was Grevin's first time to the ocean and he seemed to enjoy it. The next day, we dropped Grevin off at Grammie Jane's house and went wine tasting(I didn't take my camera so I hope I can get copies of Kristie's!). We also went swimming at the hotel where they were staying. They had a heated pool and Grevin was loving floating around in his turtle floatie. Again, no camera. I am such a bad mom!! I had such a good time with them and I miss them already!

Today, we headed out to Sacramento to celebrate Jerry and Matt's birthdays. We had alot of fun hanging out with everyone, drinking sangria, and swimming in Jerry and Kim's pool(the peops who made the cute block). Matt lives just around the corner from us and has a son who is two weeks younger than Grevin. They are best buddies-they just don't know it yet!

You have been busy! Glad you found some good weather! Doesn't it stink knowing that work is just around the corner? I started to cuddle all the time I could the week before I went back because I knew I would miss him so much!

Soo cute! Lots of fun water action for the little guy. He should come over and play in Shane's little pool soon. Oh...and I don't want to burst your bubble, but summer doesn't officially start until the 21st!
