Cubs Blankies!

We got a box from Aunty Diana the other day. The boys were so excited for their Cubs blankets and the girls LOVED all their smelly stuff from Bath and Body Works.

The box works really well as a boat or car too.

Santa Rosa Plateau

We have been to the Santa Rosa Plateau many, many times and we have never seen the Vernal Pools with water in them. I read in the news that they were filled so we hurried to visit before they dried up again.


They were tired already!

Michael didn't climb too high because he didn't want to get hurt because he had baseball. He's always my mature one. 


Anthony and Annie


Jakob and Jaileigh
both got stuck and had to be helped down.


Annie

Help MOM!


I finally had to yank him down.


Michael

and we were off again


The pools have some kind of endangered shrimp in them. I couldn't find any literature about it there so maybe they have died off?

It was nice to get out of the house. We have been quarantined because of our hand, foot and mouth disease. Blah.
