From Daddy: On our first night at Shaver Lake, we had a modest pizza dinner. On our second night, we had a nice dinner at the Shaver Lake Lodge Restaurant and Bar, newly opened five days a week starting June 15.

The boy ordered chili. We were warned that it would be spicy, but it turned out too spicy (though yummy)!

Excited boy at the Shaver Lake Lodge Restaurant and Bar, September 17, 2016

Today

The boy’s class had a walking field trip to the San Francisco Botanical Gardens

He enjoyed it, but it tired him out. On top of that, there was swimming class this afternoon.

Tonight

He emerged from his bedroom, half-asleep. He shuffled into the bathroom, got a drink of water, passed me as he moved on to the living room, and sleepily face-planted on the couch near Mommy. She shepherded him back to bed.

The Return of Basketball

From Daddy: We missed out on basketball last week due to our romp at Shaver and Huntington Lakes, but we joined today and the boy had so much fun! Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJlAwcT2Sqk to see him excel in the dribble and shoot relay drill. Click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXCnKXRzX8A to see some of the game (and he was disappointed in himself in his first round).

Last Weekend

He played with the waves at Shaver Lake (click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K–AJXBfMwg) on Saturday.

And he and Grandma tried to knock a small log off Rocky the Rock (click below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_hlI9iWWsY)

Later, we found a museum!

Granddad was fascinated by the rock below. He thought that it had a face. We named it “Rocky” to help Granddad remember it. The boy tried to knock a large stick off Rocky.

Yesterday

He had been sneezing a lot since Saturday, and I believe that it developed into a full=blown cold by Wednesday evening. We kept him home from school on Thursday.

He was far from 100% on Friday morning. He woke around 3:45 a.m. and did not develop an appetite for breakfast at his typical time. Breakfast options at home did not interest him, but he was interested in breakfast at McDonald’s. We hadn’t had McDonald’s for breakfast since Hawaii, over a month and a half ago.

Afterward, he seemed to have a good day at school.
