my mother-in-law and nephew are in town for a quick trip. benny is so much fun with the girls. for a 10 year old boy, he sure is great about catering to a 1 1/2 year old and 4 year old’s every wish! he’s played all sorts of games with them, and really worn them out!
today we thought we’d beat the san luis heat and head to avila. at the barn at 10:30 it was a cool 91 degrees! so much for cooling off! but we were all sports and stayed to feed the animals and pick some raspberries.
supposedly the raspberries were pretty well picked over, but we found the secret spot with the motherload! we all had a good time picking, although we nearly melted in the full sun. actually, gracie and lily had fun eating – their baskets were empty by the time we got back to pay!
sweet moments with grandma! isn’t it so nice when you don’t have to make sure you’ve got two little ones in hand because you’ve got someone else to do it?
we went to avila beach after the barn for lunch and a foot soak. the water actually felt sooo good!
here’s a funny shot of my prego shadow – its so round!
we finished off the afternoon with some snowcones – yumm-o!
tomorrow my sister-in-law and her 3 kids are coming over for a few days to beat the inland heat. i wonder if 90+ degrees will feel cool to them?
