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.

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
