Really Random Thursday, 6/23/16

Last week, before the valley decided to heat up for summer, I took all four grandkids to the new refurbished Storyland, near our zoo. It had been closed for awhile because of vandalism as well as all the buildings needing some updating. Fundraising efforts and lots of hard work took care of that, and this spring it opened again.
Once you get inside, it's a world of Mother Goose and other fairytale rhymes.
Aargh, matey.

  Even the directions to my house...
Cute bathroom with child-sized doors.
We rode on the train. Ella loved it.
They are adding lots of dinosaurs. It reminds me of the part of the train ride at Disneyland that goes through prehistoric times.
It was a fun day.

Mark and I went up to Lakeview Cottages at Huntington Lake on Sunday. There is water in the lake this year!
I couldn't resist a little lakeside photography.
 The skies on the way home were breathtaking.

 The other day on my morning walk I was greeted with these beauties along the way.
We received some more  pictures from the Roaring 20s party we attended attended a couple of weeks ago. That's the birthday girl on the left.

Charlotte and Levi are in the Dolphin Swim Club and today was their first meet. I wish I could have jumped in that water...

Now that the temperature has shot up here, I stay inside because I'm hot, but you introverts out there will understand that
Hope your weekend is a good one.

That looks like a great place for kids.

It was so nice to see the water in the lake. Ours down here are still so dry.

Love the sign at the end!!

I remember going to Storyland across from the Sacramento Zoo when I was a kid...took my kids there as well! It was a fun day trip from Reno over there. So much fun for the kids! I love the petting zoo there as well! I love the sign at the end - so true!!!

Looks like a cute place for the kiddos. I don't know how you deal with the high heat. I think the 90's here are too hot. And we don;t have true central air conditioning.

It's so nice to have such a fun place to take grandies, and even better than you get to spend time with grandies! Looks like a fun birthday party too. I like the heat, even when it's in the 90s. I get outdoors as much as possible. To each her own, right? But it's no doubt you're livin' the good life!
