Not only I am teaching my daughter how to brush her teeth correctly, I am also teaching her which baseball team is the best team ever! So here is us showing off our matching hats (and the brushing teeth skill).
Yesterday we decided to visit the Lemos Farm Pumpkin Patch in Half Moon Bay before the month of October is over and the pumpkins will disappear again. We met Cel and Evan and Jenae there and had a lovely morning riding the choo-choo-train, looking at pumpkins and having a picnic and pizza.
Here the three of us, having fun on the wooden horse.
Lukas would make a handsome cowboy, I think.
Spiders, spiders everywhere!
Matilda pretty in orange.
The goats were quite interesting to watch from far away.
Our last trip for the summer 2009 is finally over. We got back home last night, with sand in our hair and sweet memories of the warm ocean and sunny days in Hawaii. Lukas didn't want to leave the beach that we went to before our flight back home. It was that nice.
I will post few more photos soon. Here is one of Matilda in her beautiful Hawaiian dress that Auntie Pauline gave to her.
The photo was taken by Uncle Oai who made her smile every time he pointed the camera at her. Go figure.
You probably think now that I will share some odd story about my first love letter that I wrote or received like 30 years ago. But no.
This is about Lukas. A girl at his kindergarten has taken his heart by storm. Since few days, the only person he talks about is Mia, his friend from school. He lets everything fall when she walks in, he draws pictures for her and tonight he prepared a card with envelope for her. Awwwww, so cute.
So yesterday when I picked him up, I wanted to meet that special lady of his. She is cute, I have to say.
He does talk about the other boys in class but when he talks about Mia, he smiles all over his face.
We can't help but tease him about her but he takes it with a smirk on his face.
Weather wise it for sure doesn't feel like fall but these are the last good days where we can enjoy the warmth of the sun, long trips to the Zoo in shorts and sandals. Very soon the cold will arrive and rob us of the comfort of the sun. Oh well, nothing we can do about, so I stop complaining.
So today we went to the Oakland Zoo, made sure all our animal friends are still there, met the baboons at their new location and had a picnic while watching other kids play and later the giraffes. Or maybe they were watching us, not sure.
We couldn't miss the obligatory train ride around the Zoo which is always a nice ending to the fun.
Here is us (I was taking the picture so you see rather the kids), enjoying the ride.
