How is your summer going?
I cannot believe the kids are returning to school in about 2.5 weeks.
Since the last time I wrote, we have enjoyed some summer fun. How about you?
My brother Greg and sister-in-law Connie treated us to her company picnic at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo aka Marine World Africa USA. It had been probably 35 years since I went there. We enjoyed the rollercoaters, BBQ and dolphin show.
We stayed overnight in the neighboring town Fairfield and went to the Jelly Belly Factory. We had wanted to check it out for years.
Have ever heard of their Bean Boozled? Well, my son purchased one their boxes. You think you are eating something nice like butter flavored popcorn jellybean, but it something yucky like dirty socks. So, he and his sister are trying the various flavors in the backseat of our car during the ride home. They give their dad the nastiest flavors and he doesn’t even flinch. Randy looks at me while I am driving and says, “Your turn Hon.” Before I can say,”No way!” he shoves a black jellybean in my mouth. To my chagrin, it turns out to be skunk smell. Gross! We all had a big laugh…
We rode a diesel train from Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton to Santa Cruz Boardwalk and back.
We hiked Mount Hermon trails.
We swam at Mount t Hermon and Mission Springs pools.
We enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Pancake Ridge.
We roasted some marshmallows for smores while participating in zumba and fieldhouse activities.
We attended Church on the Beach in Capitola and hung out at the ocean relaxing. Randy and I enjoyed yummy mochas while the kids ate hot pizza.
All in all, we’ve had a blast.
Feel free to share your summer fun with us.
