This week in pictures | week 2 of summer

I'm doing a lot better since finishing my Z pack.  Doing nothing, just to rest, is a hard task being the start of summer and all.  I've rescheduled coffee plans. Postponed play dates. Skipped beach day Tuesdays.  In fact, the only person I let in the house this week was the pest exterminator.

On the other hand, it's relaxing being effortless.  See where the day takes you kinda mindset is nice for a change.

And so, here's our photo montage of week 2:

This week in pictures | week 1 of summer

I was so sick this week.

But it didn't stop me from surrendering to our first week of escapades. Summer brings out the late-morning risers in us Huis so although I've been infected the kids have let me roll out of bed at a decent hour.  Plus the fact that we are all so freak'n happy has contributed to my positive recovery.

And so...our photo montage of week 1:

Park day fix before the heat wave sets in.

Mother of all holidays

Finally got a chance to post my favorite memories from Mother's Day starting with three words every Mom wants to hear on Mother's Day - I am sorry.

...or flash back Friday to two years ago when I conducted one of my infamous back door photo seshes.  

Presley used to give me the most back lash because he couldn't stand posing for pictures.  I don't blame him.  It's tormenting for all parties involved.  But I've taught them that suffering together helps the greater good of preserving memories.  

He seemed to follow the same pattern of emotions laid out in ten phases without fail - every time.

I survived Pali Camp week.  Truman was only gone for 2 nights and 3 days.  But it's an eternity in my world.

This week in pictures | Arizona in 4 days

things to do in arizona

It all started when I called a family meeting to discuss our road trip to Arizona.  Presley was the only one who took notes.  Since then, he's been promoted from middle child to favorite child.  How cute are his check boxes!!

Andy Warhol: Revisited

Andy Warhol: Revisited 30 years later

Andy Warhol: Revisited 30 years later

My Dad used to drive a Silver Shadow just like Andy Warhol.  I think that makes my Dad iconic too.

The kids had Friday off in honor of Caesar Chavez so we drove over the hill to Santa Monica in the late afternoon to Revolver Gallery to view Andy Warhol:Revisited 30 Years Later.  Bergamont Station has become a cultivated community of art galleries geared toward art lovers who want that one-stop viewing experience.  Where have I been?? I seriously don't get out enough.
