2015 Belmont Shore Stroll and Savor

Who's hungry? It's summertime and that means the Belmont Shore Stroll and Savor is going on down in Long Beach. Every third Wednesday and Thursday of the month, from May to September, 45 different shops and restaurants offer tasty treats to passers by. It's become tradition for Theresa, Jacob and I to go, and somehow it happens that Rita, who has been here for 3 of the last 4 Stroll and Savors is here this year too.

Golden Gate Park - 5/23/15

It's been an eventful day, having gone to the farmer's market this morning, then having a picnic lunch. To finish the day we're visiting Golden Gate Park.
With all the places we're visiting for the adults this weekend, I thought it'd be good to make sure Ian had some fun. With that in mind, our next stop of the day was the carousel in Golden Gate Park.

2015 Pasadena Chalk Festival practice session

Every year, Theresa, Jacob, Ruston and I make sure we leave Father's Day weekend free so we can attend the Pasadena Chalk Festival. This year however is going to be a little different.

This year, not only will we be attending the festival, this year Ruston and I are actually competing!
On Saturday, June 13th, all the new artists were invited to attend a workshop, to help them with technique.

Picnic at Alamo Square - 5/23/15

After our morning at the farmer's market, it was time for our picnic lunch. The five of us piled into the car and Ian promptly fell asleep! I suppose we can wait just a little while for lunch while we give him 45 minutes to get a nap.
Well that gives me time to make one of the stops on my list.
Recognize this house?

Theresa, Ian, Jacob, Ruston and I are spending Memorial Day weekend in San Francisco. Everyone got to decide on two things they wanted to do. Theresa's first choice was the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market. Once we find some tasty treats we're going to do my first choice, a picnic in Alamo Park.
