The other night we had a picnic at Rock Canyon Park.


Simon wanted to climb down towards the soccer/football teams practicing.

It was fun.

On a not very related note, there is a white pigeon (?) that I've seen on our roof twice now. It's kind of weird, but maybe we should take it as a good sign? Unless it's building a nest in something important up there (vents, etc.). Then it would be bad.

milk man is back

We had quit Winder Farms back in May, I think, after getting fed up with the website and standing order requirements.

But then we had a change of heart and decided it's nice to get our groceries delivered (especially with winter coming). Plus, we (Simon) go(es) through milk like... a baby cow (?)...these days. Well, maybe not as much as a baby cow. I don't have experience with knowing how much milk a baby cow goes through in a week. But we can now reasonably meet the standing order requirement of Winder Farms.

Plus, Jamund liked it and we got a bunch of free stuff for signing back up.

Here was our first order back (with lots of free stuff):

swing happy

Swinging at the park inevitably brings the little man joy.


It's the simple things.

I gave Simon a haircut.

People were sometimes thinking he was a girl, despite his wearing boy clothes and such. He is just too pretty. Or had too long of hair.


Here is a series of photos documenting the haircut.





And the mess of hair:

We have a mini Korg. Which is a good thing when you have a mini person.

The look of disdain

When my parents came, Simon whipped out the scowl. He now whips it out for most strangers and sometimes warms up and gives them a smile, sometimes not so much.

So here is not quite the scowl...



quite appropriate

When my parents were here, Jamund and I had a date night to La Jolla Groves for dinner and then up to Sundance to see "The Sound of Music" outside.


It was pretty good, pretty cold, pretty uncomfortable seating... We sat on the grass at first but then Jamund's boss and his wife (who were also there) told us there were open seats in the actual seating area by the stage right in front of them, so we sat there after intermission.

After Maria and the Von Trapps finished the show by "walking off into the mountains" to escape the Nazis, we also got to walk off into the mountains to go to our car. It was funny to see tons of us walking up this path into the depths of Sundance to get to the parking lot. Very appropriate after seeing "Sound of Music."

Before the show, we took some photos. Simon lately started making this disdainful frowning face at most people (usually strangers but sometimes me, apparently if I'm doing something disdainful?), so we decided to impersonate him:


Then I thought we were still impersonating him, but apparently we were not.


I figured it out eventually.


I think Jamund has at least one photo of Simon doing the frowning face on his phone, so I'll try to remember and post one later. It's pretty ridiculous.
