Gavin and I decided to plant a garden this year. We planted cherry tomatoes, beef steak tomatoes, tomatillos, and 3 types of peppers. I hope the vegetables like the heat more than we did.


The family and I took a stroll along the waterfront in Long Beach while we were waiting for the rest of the Loera Clan. We were all meeting up in Long Beach to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific.


We spent the 4th of July holiday weekend in San Diego. The boys both discovered they loved chocolate chip Eggo waffles.



They boys have been sick with colds all weekend long. Not exactly how I would have chosen to spend a long weekend. They decided to sit in a basket together… not sure why. Maybe the fever made them insane?



We took the boys hiking in San Diego in San Clemente Canyon. I guess it is kinda urban hiking but on short notice it was the best we could do. It was close enough to a full on nature experience for the boys to enjoy.


We took the boys to La Jolla’s Children’s Pool where some seals like to hang out. Being a seal is a pretty good life… unless you get eaten.


Blowing the boys’ minds with science at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. Science!!!


The boys love to play in Grandpa Eddie and Grandma Sally’s backyard.
