I love visiting San Francisco!! We went to the city one day and the discovery center with Char and the cousins the next day. I loved the discovery center and want to go back. It was fantastic. I highly recommend it!
Free Ben and Jerry's? We are so there!!!

We love the coast! It was 65 degrees out and these crazies were still in the water! Spencer had fun with Brent in the monster waves! We stopped for some classic clam chowder in the bread bowl. We absorbed the sounds and smells and sights and tastes and touches (couldn't leave any out!) and had a splendid day!
Run away! It's cold!
Those waves were making me nervous!
Wanting to join the big boys...but not quite.
My pretty gal!
Brothers had blast in that water...and they froze!
Benson got knocked over by a wave so we had to strip him, poor kid!
Hannah couldn't resist tasting the sand...again and again. I don't get it!
This kids could play the longest in the water.

We have a silly tradition on Memorial Day. We each get a team of snails and paint their shells. Then we race them! Here we are, observing the race!
Spencer won followed closely by Taylor.
After we're finished, our chickens get a nice meal, if you know what I mean.

Spencer is learning some mad skills at work. He bought this used tank, engineered the whole system, learned how to weld some baffles, built a new mixer for it, and set it in cement outside the work shop. I am very impressed.
Have I mentioned that Maren likes to dress Benson up? Poor guy.
We took our neighbors to a Grizzly game. Go Grizzlies!

I liked this picture of Taylor and I! Did I already blog about her ninth?
Mini golf! We did this for McKay's birthday! Spence and I also went on a date here and I am sad to say he beat me. There was one hole that definitely labeled me the loser of the game. You know the hole with the hole right on top of a big hill? I couldn't get the ball to cooperate!
Fireworks at Madera Golf Course! We love this tradition!
For my birthday, we went to Dinkey Creek. Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures of the amazing natural water slides that the kids and Dad went down. Hannah and I were happy observers. I love visiting the mountains!

Spencer's Uncle Paul has a tradition to go camping at "Big Meadow" every Labor Day weekend. After many arm twists, he finally got us to come along with him! We love camping and had a great time, despite the freezing night that we weren't prepared for and the four hour vomit-ride-of-death. We loved the big rope swing, the hike, and the run in the big meadow, and of course, the family and friend time! Will we go again? With three of my children vomiting all around me on the way there and back, you'd have to work hard to coax me into taking that miserable ride again.
