Camping with cousins

We went car camping at Samuel P. Taylor State Park with the cousins—our first time tent camping as a family of four.

Soren helped me set up the tent...

...and then everyone tested it out.


We had s'mores...

...and then slept in.


Our campsite was great, and offered easy access to the creek, complete with a nice sitting spot.


This handy bouncy log was nearby, too.


Tall trees.


By the creek.

On the phone

At the Aquarium Under the Bay

Observing sharks...

...and enjoying shark suckers.

The hills were alive with the sound of music

We went to the Mountain Play (this year, Sound of Music) with the Ways.


Soren had a hard time with the heat, but Anders was transfixed.

Father's Day

Father's Day fish tacos & cocktails

Tomorrow promises to be a big day, with a birthday party in the morning and then a musical on Mt. Tam in the afternoon, so Sigrid prepared a Father's Day feast one day ahead of time.

LBS graduation

Today, Anders graduated from Little Bear. He got all dressed up in the morning...


...as did Soren.



The school was all set up for the graduation (which the kids had been practicing for all week).


Halmoni and Haraboji came.



Betsy led off the ceremony.


Ava and Anders made their entrance.


Anders and Agreen made goofy faces as they approached the stage.



Sun Bears!


Opening song.


Siobhan welcomed the graduating Pandas...

...and Michelle read their names.


Adam welcomed the graduating Brown Bears.


Justus congratulated the Sun Bears, whom he noted were "exuberant and strong-willed" (and prone to using large amounts of tape)...

...and Janet called them to get their diplomas.


Agreen is looking very solemn.


"Anders Kwun"





Big hug from Joyce.


The other teachers were there, too, of course.


Graduated!







Closing song.


Mementos.
