Shoes and slings

This one is for Amber....;) I saw it at the Menlo Park Art and Wine festival over the weekend and I couldn't resist!
Mr. Z's new sling-photos of cast coming...

It's a dog's life....

Introducing...Dobby! the house dog! (named after the harry potter elf) I am taking care of him for a month at his home. He's a very sweet Havanese.
A bit of a clown-he likes to sleep on his back
Not sure about this "puppy"....

Crazy Hat day at Trappings of Time!

Not sure in what case this hat would work....but it was fun!
This was at a vintage store that was closing the next day-which was sad so we went to check it out one last time.
Awesome Amy
This is what I wore to the market on Saturday....JUST KIDDING!!;)

Hot Dog Suppertime Show!

If you are in Palo Alto-it is worth it to hit the Children's library downtown-it is a secret garden in the middle of town with soft moss, wishing wells and shady trees.
Here is the magical stump...or that's what we thought it was....
Wishing well....
The Children's Theater of Palo Alto runs Hot Dog Supper Time Shows all summer-you can get a hot dog and brownies and sit on the lawn and watch really great preformances. The costumes alone are worth it.
Getting ready....
My neice Amy and Moi:)

A series of events....

So this has been a super fun July allll the way around. I was in a car accident last week-very thankfully-no one was hurt. A 91 year-old man ran a stop sign and hit my car-which tweaked my hood a little and I am not sure exactly where my license plate is-but he is fine and so am I and that is what is important. Although I am still a little shaky driving. THEN- to keep the party going-I got my camera wet and well...that was the end of that. I did learn a fascinating tactic which included submerging my camera in a bowl of rice and using a hair dryer. I have ordered a new camera today which should be very cool and I am trying to look on the bright side:) And my nephew broke his arm last week and had the cutest blue cast and is surrently terrifing his mom by trying to climb everything he can scramble on. This would be Zachary...And I am at this gorgeous house that I am taking care of which has thrown me off my loading pics game.

So-the end of the story why I am not posting pics is a) I am now a slacker b) I will try to find the card which hopefully will work and c) am waiting for my camera to come.

In the meantime, thank you so much for reading and I SWEAR I will post shortly. I fell like a blog tease....;)

Down by the Boardwalk, down by the sea-e-e

This was the aftermath of a trip to Santa Cruz to the World's best Seaside Boardwalk. It has been there since 1907. It's a great place to spend an afternoon-although a liiiiitle busy on a holiday weekend. They also have free concerts on Friday nights.

This is one of my top 2 favorite ice cream places on the West Coast. It's a local spot in Santa Cruz called "Marianne's" They have the best flavors-horchata, 1020 (carmel ice cream, oreo cookies and fudge) northern Oregon Blackberry, Cinnamon, etc.

MJ wanted to show it was the 4th of July tomorrow!

Z and my sis-how cute are they?

Discovering funnel cake..
Deep fried dough....classic treat on the Boardwalk
