A terrific lunch was shared.

Diablo Grande Kids Bike Ride



A pack of Diablo Grande kiddos got together for an after-school bike ride and snack. 

Everyone had a great time, we didn't even open the box of bandaids!
Between the parents and children we devoured 2 bags of Oreos, a bag of apples and a bag of nectarines!








We're looking forward to the next neighborhood events! 

A Couple Recent Hikes


cutest explorer ever! 


then on another occasion Olivia joined Jody and I on a hike out the back door. 


Olivia caputuring ther memories in her journal


and with a camera


Here is what she chose: 
 (water treatment facility in the valley below)

(an unusual tree - we almost exclusively see the blue oaks)

(and holding very steady with full zoom, a nearby ranch)

At one point on our rambling... we spotted a deer antler. Then we had our eyes peeled for more... and can you believe it?! nearly 1/2 mile later... we found another... THE MATCH. whoa. 



Many weeks ago the girls and I went for a hike in a neighboring canyon.



I love these kids!

Still Playing with Our Food

A couple recent examples where we encourage playing with our food.


We had a family pirate movie night and enjoyed jolly roger pizza bread and pirate booty snack mix... goofy and fun.

Camila enjoyed cutting her quesadilla first to make a space for the salsa bowl. then into more shapes.
