“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

Goodbye Monsoon season... Hello Fall?

This was the view from our front yard several days ago. These were our clouds for a few weeks, but it looks like Monsoon season might be over. I'm sorry to see it go, but hoping this means that the temperatures will be cooling soon. I'm really looking forward to fall... in fact, I suddenly have an urge to go pull out the pumpkin decorations.

A quick stop, during a long day of errands, to visit Daddy at work and check out his airplane!

We spent the morning with friends - first breakfast at the airport caffe, followed by some green-orange gathering, and ending with some playtime at the toddler playground. Orrin amazed us all by climbing up the wall and sitting in the window sill. Less surprising was his cat-like inability to get back down on his own. Only moments of climbing up, he looked around and then called, "MOMMA"!
