Back in Bakersfield for a very hot 4th of July. The heat at 9pm (still over 100 degrees) and the smoke from the fireworks were not a nice combo.


My two boys, little brother and little sister had a blast in Grandma’s inflatable pool.


We took the boys to the San Diego Botanic Garden to check out the Insect Festival. There were big lizards, tiny bugs and beautiful plants all around.


The boys love going to Westfield UTC, a local mall close by in La Jolla. The shopping center has a great playground for little kids.
