When this first began in March, did you ever think that we would still be seeing no end in sight six months later? I sure didn't. I had to cancel a quilting retreat that was scheduled for the end of March. But I surely thought I would be going to my beloved Minnesota retreat in July! *sigh* We have promised our grandkids that on their 13th birthday we would spend three days in Disneyland. A year ago we had the best time with Charlotte. Levi's birthday is coming up in March, and honestly, considering that Disneyland has no opening date yet, we have told Levi that we will celebrate his 13th "half birthday" next September and hopefully things will be more back to normal. Who knows?
Speaking of birthdays, Mark had one the end of August. But the air quality was horrible due to all the fires, so we postponed it for a week. We celebrated last Saturday night. The weather was cooler and the air was quite a bit better. We had such a good time. Aaron had planned to make hamburgers, but since he received a Traeger (smoker) earlier in the summer, he decided to do pork belly instead.
Jason, Ruby and Amelia got him back by using a roll of clear packing tape and what looked like two rope clotheslines. It took him forever to open. Don't feel sorry for him. He totally deserved it. :)
Charlotte was in the master bedroom, and when I peeked in on her, she was in P.E. class.
