Cute Things

Conversation Dave had with Penny this afternoon while changing her out of her dress and into shorts.
Penny: "I'm a boy. I'm a boy."
Dave: "No you're not, you're a girl."
Penny: "I'm a girlfriend!"

P.S. You can comment on my blog again, I fixed it.

Peach Picking

We went peach picking yesterday and it was so much fun! There's a cute little train that takes you down a little brick road with tons of grapes hanging overhead.

Penny was excited to fill up her bag with peaches at first but the excitement wore off pretty quick and then she just wanted to eat the peaches. It was my first time peach picking and there is nothing like a fresh picked peach straight from the tree. It was the juciest, most delicious fruit I've ever had.

California Adventures

My sister Sara and her husband Rangi were nice enough to put me and Penny up at their house and host adventures for almost a month. And no Cali adventure would be complete without a long, hot hike through Scotland.
The hike turned into canyoneering through the river after we'd finished all our snacks and decided to find the low trail back to the car. Penny did awesome on her first real hike.
Other, more traditional Cali adventures included several trips to the beach and grandma's pool, as well as eating In-N-Out 50% of the days I was there. Below are the kids tide-pooling at Crystal Cove. But just hanging out with the cousins was probably the best part of being in Cali. It's so fun to watch Penny get to know and love them. Sometimes we'll just be driving in the car and Penny will say "Bless you Rigdon" or "Bless you Sydney, bless you Cody" (Which I think for her covers both cousins Coby and Kody).
