A high of 108 means one thing--get thee to a pool! The 23rd Street Pool has become our home away from home and we're lovin' it! Summers by the pool remind me of when I was a little fish girl. In honor of my little girl-dom, I've been playing with Pioneer Woman's "Seventies" action, along with some of her other free actions. So forgive me while I play!

Today, we met my good friend Jen and her beautfiul girls, Katherine and Becca, at the Sacramento Zoo. The girls were so anxious to have Becca show them around "her zoo." She did a fantastic job. That sweet girl knows her way around the zoo! We also walked over to their little amusement park for some more fun. I didn't get a ton of pictures, but what I did get can be found on the flickr page (just click on the link under the photo, or the photo itself). We always say we need to do this more often, and it's so very true!

Oh my, it's been a while! I'm ready to start blogging like I mean it, now that I'm in full summer mode. I just got back from a work-related trip to Minneapolis (home of Mary Tyler Moore), and I'm pretty happy to be a Californian. No offense to the fine folks of Minnesota, but I'll take my sunny skies and 2 hours from everything life over gray skies and mugginess any day! Bottom line: If I can't be at the beach, Yosemite, the mountains, or San Fransisco within 2 hours of my location, I don't want to live there.
We also got to experience The Mall of America. Holy commercialism, Batman! That place is HUGE. I think I may have wanted to buy something, but I was a bit overstimulated and overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of stores, shops, Cinnabons, and amusement parks to even begin to figure out what it was that I wanted. So I did what any true consumer would do: I bought a chocolate-covered Twinkie and called it a night. Bottom line: A mere bite of a chocolate covered Twinkie will sit like a rock in your stomach all night long, and make it very hard to sleep.
I did, however, get to have a grand adventure with these two ladies for three whole days. Bottom line: They rock socks!
