I just realized it’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted anything. After Magic Shell, I really didn’t see how any other post would match up. Once you’ve got the magic you’ve got all you need for the perfect summer. 🙂

However, we are having a great summer and I thought I’d post the pictures to prove it. One of the drawbacks my parents have to put up with for living in picture perfect Fallbrook/San Diego area is that we visit…for long periods of time… whenever the weather in Utah doesn’t suit us. 🙂 For the past two weeks we have enjoyed:

She was still standing there when we finally moved on.DSC_0078Hangin’ out with a California CondorDSC_0122 This one is for Uncle Matt.

And Trinity finally got to see the baby giraffe:
DSC_0127It has been a great trip and it is hard to believe it is coming to a close. Still a few things to come though. I believe SOMEBODY has an 8th birthday approaching! We’ll be spending it in proper California style at the beach. Photos to come…
