Hi there and welcome back! It's been HOT and busy lately and there's no end in sight for either. We have a lot going on with many moving parts and it feels like school is looming just around the corner. Only 1 month left so we better make the most out of these last few weeks. Thank goodness we have one more family trip planned to escape for a bit and just enjoy ourselves. I wish it were happening tomorrow.
Until then here are last week's pictures:
I spend a lot of time in the sports pick-up lines. This evening its for Brandon at basketball. They are doing hard core conditioning so as soon as we got home he pretty much just crashed.
The best way to deal with the insane heat is to cool down with an ice-cold treat. We're having It's It ice-cream sandwiches tonight in 3 different flavors. I chose mint and the other two chose the new chocolate flavor--yum! The original vanilla lost out but I'm sure Tyler will grub on that when he gets home from work.
What it is about these stairs? This is where Justin chose to park it and watch videos on his phone. He was there for a good hour. So random and doesn't even look comfortable but also so him! Rusty was on the stairs too rolling around and trying to express how much he's over this heat.
Heat wave or not we have to walk. Bella and I went to stroll around the park where we found some pretty, lollipop, pinkish flowers in the lawn that matched my shirt. We sought out as much shade as possible but it didn't really matter. Once it's over 100 it's hot everywhere even in the shade! Look--her panting tongue matches my shirt too.
Time for another college tour. Justin and I went to a "Summer Roar" event at the University of Pacific for prospective students. It's a really nice, small, private school but that also means big dollars. At least they give decent financial aid packages and have a lot of good perks. That building there was in the first Indian Jones film where you see Indy near the beginning as a college professor. It's just one of many movies filmed here which was neat to learn about.
Day 195- Saturday, 7/14/18
John has been traveling all week so we've missed him, but he's home now and today helped Justin make 3 kinds of salsa with all the tomatoes that ripened during his absence. Later we had a big Mexican feast so everyone could try them out and they were a big hit.
John worked on his bike today and also went for a short ride since it was a slow Sunday. For dinner we headed to Davis to meet up with some college friends at the Graduate. We all got our animal science degrees together just over 25 years ago. Boy how time flies and it was great fun to reminisce with them about the good old days.
That's it! Stay cool and I hope to see you next week.
