what I did on my summer vacation- quick takes

fun time at the zoo, saying goodbye to kindergarten friends...
It only took 14 years, but we got a night away without the children. No, we did not run away to Paris. Husband had a two day conference in the middle of the week in San Francisco. I got to tag along when a friend offered to babysit the children. What a treat! Husband worked; I got to slowly explore two museums....alone....(for an INFP- this is heaven). One museum was Legion of Honor with the largest Rodin collection outside of the Musee Rodin in Paris. It was lovely, wandering the exhibits like I did in France years ago as a single woman with no responsibilities besides myself. It was a long time coming, having a night away. It was also wonderful coming home to the children.
more alone time- dinner at a garlic restaurant, home of the world's longest garlic braid; visiting a new-to-us old mission of Padre Junipero Serra
fun with most of the cousins- pinata for the 'all-cousin-birthday' party, small town Independence Day parade, the oldest three girls performed their traditional July 4th ballet, choreographed by Daughter #1


  1. I'm glad you liked The Stinking Rose. Is that Mission Dolores?

  2. Those are wonderful pictures. Sometimes when the days are hard (like mine were this summer) it's a good thing to put pictures up so you can see how beautiful life really is. That's the top lesson I've learned from scrapbooking.

  3. Thank you for sharing your photos! I am so glad you and your husband got a couple of days together. And all that alone time you had? Sounds like Heaven to me!

  4. Nice mid-air shot!!! Talented photographer :)

  5. I was in Paris as part of a travel group tour last year! :) Although I'm not fluent in French, I made the most of it speaking with locals whenever I went. At times I had to translate for my travel mates.
    Visiting museums by yourself is fun--you can take your time and go your own pace! Glad you had a good time away from home.

  6. Great pics Priests Wife (and great memories)!

  7. I'm so happy to hear when other mom's get away with their husbands. someday... someday...
