Bliss...wedded or otherwise

Went to the SB Zoo the other day. It sits practically ON the beach. You can see and smell the ocean from several of the exhibits. I like to photograph the birds because they are colorful and make for a good picture.

This is our long lost step sister from my Mom's previous marriage. We haven't seen her in over 25 years. My Mom found her on facebook. She and her husband and two kids fit right in with our crazy family. I got the pleasure of spending the weekend with her and her kids. The kids are the same age as Alex and Indy. They get along great. I'm so glad to have another sister to spend time with. Nina, thanks for a great weekend!!
One of several trips to the beach this weekend. The kids did a lot of body surfing and boogie boarding.

This is my Mom at the farmers market yesterday. All decked out in her "I'm a lady who lunches" spring outfit.
Lynne...this is for you!

The blueberries were superb. I recommend finding your local farmers market and buying your produce there instead of the super market. The flavor and freshness is amazing.

Yesterday I took the kids to the beach by myself. It seams that everyone else in my family has a "life" and can't be bothered. The kids had fun until Alex stepped on a bee and got stung on the bottom of his foot but was easily distracted when a bride and groom came down to the beach from the Four Seasons Hotel to do a little photo-op....

Only in California can you see a bride in a gorgeous dress and a super cute groom getting on their paddle boards and paddling into the sunset together. All I could think of was...
A: she'll never wear the dress again anyway,

B: Dear God I hope that dress isn't a Vera Wang!!

How cool is that the bride and groom are coming on shore. You look like you are having sooo much fun with your mom and family. Wish we had your weather here. It has been cool and non stop raining. Keep on blogging!

Oh, you're the best!!

I'm on a waiting list for a blog makeover and am definitely going to use sunflowers as part of my theme. They make my heart smile.
