Relaxing at the beach

Brennan found a comfy seaweed couch.

Small people, big ocean

Mission Beach in San Diego is perfect. After being pummeled by the waves a few times, Brennan knows how to watch the waves. Weston is getting brave enough to get wet halfway.


Name writing is the sand is both unlimited and ephemeral.


Loving the carosel! But the tilt-a-whirl was Weston & Brennan's hands down favorite. They rode it about a dozen times. Kelton loved the giant roller coaster, but W&B weren't tall enough to ride.

Weaving has become big at our house. First all three kids learned at the Ohlone Fall Fest, then Kelton & Brennan built a wood & nail loom, finally we borrowed a large floor loom from our friend Cindy. Weston made a cardboard loom that he's using to weave braided yarn. Great fall projects!

On the ferry

On our Seattle trip we took the ferry for fun.

Brennan wanted to make his own moccasins. We bought leather and fake fur at Michael's. We found a suitable basic pattern on the Internet. Then made a paper pattern to fit Brennan's foot. After using A leather punch to make the holes, Brennan stitched them together. He's loving the warm coziness. He's wearing the finished moccasin in the photos while working on the second one.
