It seems like I do one of these every other month or so. You know, the “I’m sorry I’m a terrible blogger who only blogs like, once a month” post. But it doesn’t make it any less true. I am a terrible blogger. I’m not all that sorry though, if I’m to be completely honest. It was summer, people! We had to do SUMMER!
But alas, summer is over now. I don’t know where the hell it went, but I suspect I lost sight of it somewhere back in July, when the insanity of holiday-birthday-birthday-birthday-birthday-holiday began. Fun was had, oh yes it was. I sincerely hope you don’t expect a full summer recap, because I won’t be doing that. BUT, I will offer you a few photographic tidbits of the last few weeks, hows about that?
First up: Dylan’s Birthday. Oh my god. This kid is awesome, and awesome kids deserve awesome birthdays, so dammit! That’s what she got! Disneyland, party, presents. I had a mad case of the greens all weekend.
She asked for a solid week after it was all over when her next birthday was. She’s still asking for presents. And we may let her blow out candles on her dinner on occasion, just to get her over the hump.
Toms birthday was a couple of weeks after Dylans but it was much more low key. I asked, but he said he didn’t want a pool party and Hello Kitty! cake, so whatever, his loss.
On Saturday, we went to the Ronald Reagan Library to check out the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit. It. Was. AMAZING. We are major Disney nerds, so for the super fan, this was awesome. Even for the less-obsessed, it’s worth checking out. So much history and memorabilia, from all my childhood favorites, and most of Dylans. We loved it, and also got the chance to walk through the Ronald Reagan museum, which was so beautiful. If you live anywhere near Simi Valley, I highly recommend visiting. I took so, so many pictures of the exhibit itself, and haven’t had any time to edit any of them, but I have a few from the gardens:
So, there you have it, some pictures to prove that we were supersupersuper busy and I just couldn’t possibly find the time to write. Oh, and somewhere in there, my kid got all old and shit:
Gosh, she sure is pretty ::loads shotgun to prepare for 14 years from now::
Hey! We also had ice cream:
And we even found the time to go to Costco and ride our bikes!
See? Not a second to spare. But, sadly, summer is over now, and I imagine all the fun will cease immediately. So I’m hoping (trying) to get into a more regular posting groove. I’m not going to promise anything, and I’m not going to hold myself to a certain schedule, but things are slowing down a bit, and I’d like to spend my free time here, if you’ll have me.
How was your summer? As fun as museums and Costco? Doubtful, but I hope it was full of love and memories were made. Stick around, yeah? I’ll be around too.
