Birthday Weekend

IOur original plan was to celebrate in Disneyland. However a trip that usually takes a handful of hours ended up taking that same amount a time to not move very far. There were some big mudslides on a very busy highway and it moved A LOT of traffic over to the highway we usually use. After driving for 4 hours to a city it usually take 45 min. To get to we decided to turn around. 

I decided to make some lemonade with the lemons I had been given and we ended up having a nice weekend out festivals, farms, restaurants and nice weather! 
Pumpkins as far as the eye can see. 

Nothing better than a steamed Attichoke grown on premises! 
How cute is this old fashioned ice cream truck!? We were at a Clam Festival on the beach.

Happy Trails

We rescued our Sammy from a shelter 8 years ago and it was with a heavy heart that we laid him to rest late last month. 

Sammy was the BEST dog! He was sweet, silly, great with kids and loved running after other dogs (imagine that one kid who was always saying "wait up"). He had the body of a lab and the legs of a Corgi, so as you can imagine running wasn't his specialty. 

Sammy had bone cancer in his front shoulder. There was nothing we could do but keep him comfortable. We found out last February. He was only suppose to live maybe at most a month, but he made it through almost September. 

You will be missed and never forgotten. Until we meet again sweet friend.
