Summer is here and we have been busy.

It started on Fathers day weekend. Logan, my Mom and I went to San Francisco on Saturday, for the day. We took Logan to the Exploratorium and to an international dance festival that was there, at the Palace of Fine Arts. I have not been there since I was a kid and forgot how beautiful the park is and how fun the museum is. The dance festival was wonderful, they had performers from several different countries in beautiful traditional costumes. We saw Scottish, Indian, Afro-Peruvian, Flamenco, Hip Hop, Korean, Japanese, and Mexican folkloric performers. At the end of the show, they all did a Conga line out to the lobby for a big international dance party. It was so much fun. After we left the park Logan really wanted to go up and down the "big hills", which we did, along with Lombard "the crookedest" street and then a visit to Coit Tower, to the top, which didn't last too long because I am very, make that extremely afraid of heights. Logan held my hand and took good care of me though.
For Fathers day Dennis wanted to relax at a pool and have a BBQ, so we headed to my Aunt's in Felton, and went to the community pool nearby. We BBQ'd on her back porch under the redwoods. It was a really nice relaxing day. Dennis was very content.

This last weekend it started with the Relay for Life on Friday, the office I work for participates every year. This year Logan stayed with me until late and walked many laps with me until Dennis came to pick him up at 10pm, I stayed until 2:30 and finally headed home. On Saturday we went to our friends BBQ, we have not seen them for 2 years. They have three boys, one of which is only one day older than Logan. The BBQ was at the Uncle's house in Prunedale, he has horses to ride and a doon buggy to drive, a mountain of hay bales to climb, and snakes to catch. A boy's dream! Then on Sunday we went out to the quarter midget race track in Morgan Hill. It was promotional day and for ten dollars Logan could race a car around the track about 8 times and get a trophy for participating. Logan did so well and loved it so much he went for a second round. I have a feeling this is something he might get into, Dennis and I both had fun too and really loved watching Logan.
