All BOYS trip with Dad and Uncle to the Grand Canyon

Boy, I sure have a lot to catch up on in the Memory Keeper posts! I’ve been increasingly using the Hubbs phone for pictures and then I have to wait to upload them when he’s home and I remember…so yeah, its a slower process. Anyhoo… here are some of our family photos from July

Since I didn’t go on this trip, I won’t have any Family Fun Adventure comments to make. A fast moving preschooler + dangerous heights and cliffs = a huge ball of stress for mom, so we kept each other company at home. I will just be sharing a few pictures from the trip

Azure has talked about wanting to visit the Grand Canyon off and on before. However when told about this trip, he wasn’t too interested. After packing his own bag he got excited and had a great time

A rare picture of all the kids. The big boys don’t like being photographed (which is the reason for my overwhelming photos of the littles most of the time) and of course it’s impossible to have everyone making a normal face! Can you tell who are the goofy ones?

We took a day trip to the Oceano Sand Dunes in Pismo Beach, which are miles of sand dunes by the ocean. It was a sunny windy day and the dunes are made up of gorgeous fine sand. All the climbing and jumping made for some hungry thirsty peeps.  If you are ever in the area, have lunch at the Rock & Roll Diner which is in a couple of converted train cars. How fun is that! They have a huge menu, including great burgers, which is what the kids had

A couple of summer snuggles

L: A bowlful of watermelon to start Sunday off right R: I started brewing kombucha again, I place it in a tapped jar after its made so the kids can easily serve themselves. Oddly enough, picky eater Brecks is the biggest fan of the stuff

L: I add some frozen berries to mine and let it sit for a day to infuse in the kombucha. Perfect summery drink R: Dinner Idea: Homemade Lamb and Vegetable Curry over a bed of Basmati rice
