Summer is finally here and good times abound! It's only June and we've already gone camping at South Carlsbad Beach, spent a day on Balboa Island with our cousins, and vacationed in Palm Springs over Father's Day weekend (complete with slides down the water slide into the sparkling pool, a tram ride up into the desert mountains, hiking, loads of ice cream, and a stop off the 10 freeway to visit the Dinosaur museum.)

This week it's "Kid's Games Summer Camp" for all three boys, and I get to be Caleb's camp counselor! Next stop WATER SKIING with Grandpa G in Northern California! Then we'll have a visit from Aunt Cherrie and Rachel for the week of the 4th, followed by more playdates at the beach and local parks. Last will be another family vacation, this time to McCall, Idaho. Does the fun ever cease?

Thanks to Matt's exciting job as National Director of Marketing for Response Genetics, and the help of my mom and Matt's mom and step-Dad, I was able to join Matt in Geneva for one of the World Lung Conferences this Spring.

Walking through the Geneva streets and parks, and along the lake shore; our deafening climb to the bell tour of St. Peter's Cathedral at high noon, seeing Calvin's very own chair' eating wonderful crepes and fondu; taking tours to Vevey, Yvoire, Mont Blanc and Chamonix, and the Mer de Glace; tea at the four seasons; and much needed quiet. A lovely trip!
