We have to start with these, end of school projects the kids did. They had to write about themselves, using the letters of their names. Molly:According to her own estimations, she is Magnificent, Orange (her hair, in the sunshine), Loving, Likeable and Young.
Jacob would describe himself as:
Jewish, Awesome, Cook (he likes to), On Task (always!), Bacon (loves it) and Radiant (like Wilbur in Charlotte’s Web). I love it. Especially that he paired Jewish with bacon.
The a couple of housekeeping pictures:
This was from when they were making Grandma and Grandpa’s bed up before they visited. Just too cute. And then, during that visit, Molly met Wonder Woman:
Other snippets, from my phone, that I finally downloaded from this spring. Like when we went for a walk on Abbot Kinney a while back:
And stopped for ice cream one hot day:
Or got new jammies at Old Navy:
And finally, the amazing Luke Skywalker that the kids built out of Legos. He even has a light saber.
So, before school ended, it was Daddy’s birthday. And it was a big one. So we did a lot of local celebrating.
We started the birthday day with brunch at Inn of the 7th Ray.
Where the kids make kooky glasses
And kookier faces
Then we went the country mart in Malibu to hang out and shop. And snack. Here are my burger and fries boys (Jacob is still talking about these fries).
Nex tit was time for ball at the bluffs
Look at that soccer kick!
And looking for dolphins out at sea (or in Mol’s hair):
And more teasing
Then, that night we had a birthday celebration at home with presents and cake, and birthday wishes (which we hope came true!).
Then school ended! We had a crazy week of playdates and finishing up at school and then Molly and Jacob each wanted to throw a party before all their friends went out of town for the summer on vacations. So Molly planned and threw a pink tea party.
It was all pink food, and girls in pink dresses and lots and lots of princess play. Before a princess movie:
Frozen, of course.
Then after a gorgeous Sunday in the Palisades, we came home for Jaocb to throw his party – a Star Wars party. Here was his menu:
The boys all came over and played
And did “Bubble gum in a dish” to pick teams
And then ate all the food from Jacob’s planning
And got a surprise visit
whom the fought to the death
And then collapsed to watch a movie (Return of the Jedi, Jacob’s favorite).
And then yesterday we went blueberry and strawberry picking with Seamus and Tuva and ate fresh berries warm from the sun and went home with them for a pizza playdate before Jacob and Seamus played each other in tball. And that about catches us up, which is good, because that’s just in time for Father’s Day – and I have a feeling we will take a few pictures at the car show on Sunday!
