Discovering Autumn

One windy day last week Summer and Mom played the game of "Catch the Falling Leaf." As the leaves fell from the many trees outside of our apartment, we tried to catch them, catching five leaves altogether. We brought them inside where Summer had fun throwing them in the air.

The next day she enjoyed pushing her car through the leaves. This was the second day she had her car and was walking behind it like a pro. Of course, she had to stop and observe the fallen leaves on the way. We are lovin' this Fall thing, since we didn't have much of a Fall season in San Francisco. -J

Birthday Party

We had a little party for Summer at Grammy's with Julia's immediate family. We didn't want a big to do, but we wanted to make sure Summer had a cake. And who better to make that cake than Grammy! Thanks for the banana cake, Gram!! Whoa! Candles!

Summer's new favorite person, Cousin Tommy

Next stop, Monterey Bay Aquarium

We went to the aquarium on Summer's birthday, and she loved it. We all did, really. It's built to a scope to let you up close, yet inspire a nice level of awe... and ahh... and aww! Happy Birthday Summer!

We went to the zoo.

We went to the zoo on Tuesday, Nov. 13. We have mixed feelings about zoos, but in the end we feel it is best to expose Summer to more rather than less. We present, warts and all, the San Francisco Zoo.

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Great... I'm older. But days like this make it worth while.
- Ron

Summer gave me cool robot magnets. So she got a big kiss...

...which quickly turned into a Daddy/Summer/Buster wrestling match.

Then we went for a great hike at the Bayshore wildlife area. Lotsa cool birds.

Pelicans, hiding their black-tipped wings.

Then we topped off the afternoon with lunch at Dittmer's.
