Orange County Fair

Yesterday, Steveo and I brought Gram and Alex (Steveos cousin) to the OC Fair. Its pretty much like any county fair. Steveo wanted to go on the rides. Alex wanted to play the games. I wanted to spend hours in the petting zoo (and hoard some animals) Gram was content with all of it. We learned patience, kindness, compromise. Steveo got to eat Chocolate covered bacon and rode the rides, Alex played and won a few games, I made friends with a goat, and Gram enjoyed the day. On the way home we met Tom at his work and went out to dinner.
Today I am in full lazy couch potato mode.

4th of July photos

Chance didnt like the big dogs.
Bellula was sweet.

Im just grateful he wanted to come with us.

It has become a new tradition to go to Toms dads home in San Clemente where the weather is beautiful and the air is clean. We go and roast marshmellows, along with my soon-to-be sister in law Dana and her husband Eric. I took Chance along too. I had an opportunity to have a good chat with Steveo regarding bullying. I love that he trusts me enough to tell me about his worries. I hope we always maintain that tight connection.

Nick had a blast too, and spent half the time playing video games and watching Spaceballs. He seems really comfortable around Toms family too. All in All, it was a happy Independence Day.
