May: Railtown 1897



After a 5k for Children's Arthritis and a Chocolate Festival in Oakdale, CA, Jason and I decided to take Oliver to Railtown 1897 in Jamestown.  It was a hit!  Oliver loved the trains!

May: Whale Watching In Monterey


Passed out!

When Kelly & Kallie visited us we made a day trip to Monterey for some whale watching!  It was great!  We saw multiple humpback whales and dozens of dolphins!  And luckily no one in our group threw up, although Jason was literally green much of the boat ride and I got some strangers vomit on my face, but that is ok!  All part of the experience!

if i had a million dollars...

one of my favorite ways to spend a saturday is packing up some hot dogs and s'mores and having a bonfire and playing at the beach in santa cruz, ca.  these items would make it even better...
beach blanket so our stuff doesn't get covered in sand.
perfect white top.
adorable red sailor skirt.
it would be so cool to learn to play the ukulele. especially while relaxing at the beach.
i love this modest swimsuit for sunbathing and wading.
you need a beach bag to haul your stuff.
great huaraches can take you anywhere.

July Wishlist



I need a good straw fedora for these hot summer days.
My friend has these shoes, and I covet them every time she wears them.  They look so comfortable and can be worn with anything!
I am sick of carrying a bulky, ugly diaper bag.  I need a cool backpack for zoo days, picnics, hikes, you name it...
