Our cabin in mid-April...

...thanks to a neighbor more adventurous than ourselves. See the matched before-and-after shots. What a difference 12 ft makes! Weston is ready to go to work with his red shovel.

Easter Sunday outings

Kites in the morning, kayak in the afternoon. It was blustery but beautiful!

Gallery of Nana's and Papa's visit

From lakes to hills, from gardens to redwoods, a great time was had by all. When will they come again?

The swing

While Nana and Papa were visiting we sanded and painted the swing from the cabin. Now it is in almost constant use. Should have put one up years ago!


Brennan had surgery on Wednesday. He came through brilliantly and by Saturday he's running around like nothing even happened. I think it was harder on his parents!


Today we took a walk at Bayshore Park. We were there at a very low tide, right at the lowest point. We saw water spurting from holes on the mud like little geysers - clams? We also saw avocets, stilts, herons and egrets. Weston's favorite were the ladybugs. He was able to catch them, let them crawl on his hands, then watch them fly away.

Maiden voyage

Everyone had a several rides around Lake Boranda in the kayak.

The tandem kayak arrived today. Everyone is very excited try it out. Brennan thought the paddle was too big so he used his broom

Nana's turn

Storytime before naps fell to Nana today. Weston and Brennan would have listened all day!

Cable Car Museum

We had a lovely day walking around San Francisco yesterday with Nana and Papa. Lunch at House of Nanking was the grownups favorite activity, but watching the workings of the cables was definitely Kelton's. It was fascinating to actually see and hear the cables spinning, generating motion for all the lines.

Swinging Baby Bear

David hung the cabin swing in our backyard. All the boys love it. Weston even gave his lovey, Baby Bear, a special ride.

Storytime with Papa

Nana and Papa arrived safe and sound today. All the boys were thrilled. Papa read bedtime stories.

Gone fishin'

Brennan fishing off the dock at Boranda Lake at Foothill Park. He caught a purple one!


Daddy has a new helper this year.
