Sam's Week

While Steve and Anna were in Mammoth, Sam participated in Vacation Bible School. We also had some good eats, and met up with Julia and Mari at the Great Park in Irvine for carousel and farm fun. It was a nice relaxing week, Sam and me.

Anna and Steve went to Mammoth for one week for running camp for Anna's track club. Steve was a chaperone for the camp. Here are some photos from their fun-filled trip.

My Birthday, Part 2

After lunch we went to the Santa Barbara Zoo. This is considered a smaller zoo but it has a great variety of larger animals such as elephants, and my favorite giraffes. Afterwards we walked down State Street where I bought my birthday present, a giraffe necklace at F21. It was a wonderful day and a nice way to ease back into the Southern California lifestyle we enjoy, especially in the summer.

My Birthday, Part 1

It was hard to imagine doing anything grand for my birthday after our spectacular trip to Japan. Steve suggested a spontaneous day trip to Santa Barbara. We got a late morning start and arrived in Santa Barbara within two hours. We decided to dine at Brophy Bros, overlooking the ocean. We had a fantastic lunch, I had an oyster shooter to start, and the shrimp scampi. Sam had a tasty burger, I think this was the summer where he became a huge meat eater. We then walked along the docks and found a walkway to a secluded beach area that still had all the views. It made me appreciate beautiful Southern California very much.
