|Our actual calendar- funny it should be bees this month!|
June is such a great month! We have lots to celebrate and much to be thankful for: birthdays (his and mine- Happy Birthday fellow June Bugs!), Father's Day, and an anniversary of when we first met (awww!). The first weekend in June is Jam Berry Day at a local strawberry stand. They sell their ripe strawberries with the tops cut off for $1 a pound! (And, RATS!!! NO pictures AGAIN this year. I am always so focused on getting 20-30lbs of strawberries that I don't juggle my camera well. Next year, I PROMISE!!!). There is June gloom- which I happen to LOVE! If you don't live in soCal, it's a persistently foggy, cool weather pattern that settles in for at least the first half of June- it's lovely! June also brings the promise of luscious summer fruits. And there are June bugs (of the real sort. Not fun when they wind up in your burrito. Ask Mr. Bee...). :P
June also starts summer visitor season. We have been blessed with amazing friends and family who will travel great distances to come see us. I think our close proximity to the beach doesn't hurt, either! Last week we had our friend Jodi come stay with us for the whole week. We are so thankful that she spent her vacation on us and drove a great distance to be here. We had a very fun visit with her, consisting of many late nights...and later mornings! She brought coffee (Yay!) and bananas...have you ever played Bananagrams? It is sooo fun...kinda like Scrabble, but a bit different. And fun bonus, it actually comes in a banana. :)
|The very first game :)|
|First winning compilation...compliments of Gabe!|
Jodi went around the house and took pictures of owls...over 60 for sure. Here's a fave...
|Who-hooo's the cutest?!|
We made brunch almost every day...because we woke up waaaay after breakfast. This was usually the time of our first meal.
Gabe does not like brunch. He says he feels like he's getting cheated out of a meal. Growing teenagers!
I would be remiss if I did not mention Jodi's current Korean obsession, which centers around a certain k-pop boy band (can you say Big Bang?! Have you heard of this craze?)
