From Daddy: The second kids podcast that we began to listen regularly is Brains On! The most recent episode we heard was the second Mystery Sound Extravaganza. We love the show and its Brains Honorroll. High Five! #trypod

From Daddy: About a year ago, while driving around Gilroy, the boy and I started listening to podcasts specifically aimed to kids. The first one, I believe, is “But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids” and we salute it. #trypod. Check it out at http://digital.vpr.net/programs/why-podcast-curious-kids. The most recent episode he heard was “Do Dogs Get Strep Throat?”
From Daddy: He had a great week with his Colorado cousins!
Mommy and he met them, Grandpa, and Grandma Pam on Monday.
They all came back here on Tuesday and then we went to Alcatraz on Wednesday!
Afterward, lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf and we swung by the house made popular by the television shows “Full House” and “Fuller House.” We also drove past the building where Mommy and I had our wedding reception almost eighteen years ago.
I had to go to work on Thursday, but they went to the mall to shop and see turtles.
The next day, they tried and failed to get into Muir Woods. They shopped and had lunch with me. Then the young boys went to the playground.

From Daddy: We had a great playdate last week at Planet Granite!
He had a fun time climbing! (Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpoE3boOOUk to watch him climb.)
Afterward, we ate at Irving Pizza! Yum!
From Daddy: Last week, I was at a conference in Las Vegas and I’m glad to be home to the family! Above is the light show at the Fremont Street Experience with zipliners flying through (or click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQfKs0pvZS0

From Daddy: He’s happy to be back at Camp Strawberry, one year after his first camp here!
Yesterday (Monday) was the first day. We had breakfast at McDonald’s, just before camp, as we did last year (though unlikely last year, he is sadly without his classmate, who is currently in a different camp).
In the morning, the temperature outside home and in Mill Valley was in the 50s when we left home. He tried and loved his Cars jacket. I’d tried to get him to wear it in the winter once, and he didn’t care for it. Today, he loved it and found it comfy. He even wore it into the restaurant.
I had him leave the jacket in the car when we arrived at camp since the temperature had risen to the 60s. (He put it back on for the car ride this morning.)
He was happy to be back.
He had a happy Day One, but leaped up to meet me when I picked him up at 4:33 p.m. in the afternoon; I had confirmed with the camp counselors that camp ended at 4:30 and that I should pick him up just afterward, but many kids had left by the time that I arrived and he greeted me with a “Finally!”
We jointly agreed that I would pick him up fifteen minutes earlier today. He ran up to greet me when I arrived this afternoon and declared that I arrived at the perfect time. Somehow he was proud of have received seven lei’s today and wants to wear them tomorrow for Dress-Up Wednesday in which the theme is “tropical.”
