For the records… catching up on some summer biggies.
Finally in early August, after Theater Camp and LEGO camp, and lots of long days at work for Jeff, our family was together for full days of travel and exploration visiting friends and places in our beloved Santa Cruz.
The boys, ready and raring for rides, got their first taste of the Boardwalk. We thought Calder was going to be able to ride the Giant Dipper, but he's got an inch or two to grow. We made up for it with a splash ride on Logger's Revenge, and he and I took flight on the Cliff Hanger hang gliding ride which was pretty great. He's outgoing on those rides, for sure!
Got to see our friends, bring the kids together again, and get our boys connected to the people we love but don't get to see as often as we'd like.
Santa Cruz is a busy busy place in the summertime. I can't say I loved the crowds. But getting to see and connect with the important people and hit up the best spots was something we needed to do. Thank goodness we knew the in's and out's of the town so we could dodge traffic and find peaceful spots here and there to touch a bit of our former life as residents of Santa Cruz.
God, that kid's got some hair!!!
