A perfect day at the beach. We walked a long way on the sand

Malcolm and I had a great repeat week in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach last week when we met Mike and Annette for the Pageant of the Masters. It is a terrific Art show with people injected into the painting for over a minute. There is always a theme and this year was Make Believe so there were very cute dragons, Peter Pan and many contemporary artist portrayed. It was just amazing and time went by so fast. There were many paintings so the show lasted two hours. Prior to the show we viewed the art, pottery, jewelry and sculpture done by gifted artist from the area. We took two days for the drive so we had time when we arrived to go the beach and watch the waves and look in some cute shops and dream about a beach house for a week. ( we checked the prices and decided the motel was just great) We had dinner out by ourselves, bought me a new dress for Mike and Annette's coming wedding , had dinner with Mike and Annette and took in the show. On the way home we visited with our friends the Goss; in Fresno and enjoyed a great evening with them too. It was a wonderful week! Thank to my honey for all the driving and taking such good care of me!!

Paige helping clean silver spoons

Malcolm and I shared the 4th of July with Amanda and Tyler. We made potato salad, beans, all kinds of fresh fruit, hamburgers and hot dogs, corn on the cob and rootbeer floats. It was delicious. Afterwards Paige and I went home and cleaned my silver spoons. It was Paige's first experience and she was enthusiastic and very cute.
