Past Few Weeks

Even though Daddy's been back to work, we've been keeping busy. Last week Grammy came to visit!

We spent time with our besties doing art and playing.

We've been enjoying the warm weather with nature walks.

We spent some time with our little cousins.

We've been on the look out for the trash trucks.

And catching up on our reading.

Scooter Boy

Westly has a new obsession. He rode a friend's scooter the other day and did so well and had so much fun, we had to get him his own.

Summer's End

Well, the end has come. Michael is back to work. And West and I are sad, but we are all thankful for the great summer we had together. Michael and I agree this has been one of the best summers ever. Here are some high lights:

We kicked off our summer vacation with a special trip to Carmel with Papa and Nana Shaw:

 Westly and Daddy spent lots of time at Chuck E. Cheese
 Westly learned to play miniature golf
 We spent a week in Tahoe with the whole Shaw clan and had a blast!

 I took a solo trip down to see my family, attend a friend's wedding, and spend time with my sister before she left for Belize again.
 We spent our summer days doing art...
 Cuddling in bed and enjoying lazy mornings...
 Vegging with Mickey Mouse...
 Having lots of adventures...

 My summer finale was the big SCBWI writers conference where I met authors and had my life changed!

Farewell summer!
