June 2013 Recap

Well, we were pretty busy with graduation parties and a visit from Beth's mom.  So busy that it has kind of been nice with the BART strike and me working from home this past week.  I will keep this post short and sweet but include a lot of pictures ala Beth style.

The Kids Party at the Henwoods:

The Henwoods and Vitale's put together a begining of summer / end of school party.  It was pretty much awesome and with the kids playing  on the water slide to their hearts content.

Borges Ranch and Rock City

While Jackie was here, we took her local to nearby Borges Ranch and up Mount Diablo to Rock City.  The kids had their usual fun climbing the sandstone!

Jackie's Visit - Learning to Crochet
 I love that the girls love to do this type of thing.  Especially  when you think that it was the girls idea for their grandmother to teach them.

And Lots of Running

We have been running a lot in our neighborhood.  There is a little bit of single track on a part of the trail.  I have been running this for a few weeks now and have been aware that this would be a prime location for rattlesnakes.  Well Beth took the kids out a couple of days a go and low and behold this lovely lady was waiting for them to come back. As with most rattlesnakes, they want very little to do with humans and they gave her a wide berth.   That week we saw quite a few deer, rabbits and other non-venomous type snakes.  Pretty cool!!!

Pretty much sums up the last couple of weeks.
