IMGP0178  A surprise visit from Cindy and her husband, Dale! I worked with Cindy at Sharp in San Diego several years ago and have enjoyed staying in touch with her. They were here for the fourth of July - what a wild celebration! You can see the neighborhood lit up with fireworks behind them.

IMGP0220  I love how Nate gives Sophie a drink out of his hat! imgp0221  We love this ridge hike because Sam can do so much of it. We keep a good hold on him in many places, though, because it's a tiny bit narrow for him to do all on his own. imgp0222 imgp0224
imgp0225  Holding on tight to Daddy on the Pillbox trail! imgp0228 imgp0229 imgp0232

IMGP0260 IMGP0267  Wow - new hiking shoes! IMGP0271 imgp0279
IMGP0286  Tita Bear said Sammy would be a great model and asked how he was with taking direction. I decided it would be fun to find out while "modeling" his new hikers. Here he is learning some poses from Gramma :) imgp0294 imgp0296 IMGP0311
IMGP0314  A morning of fun at the beach with Gramma! IMGP0316 IMGP0318 IMGP0320

IMGP0333  Pilates session with Leo in our backyard. You will note Sam has a very hand's-on approach to his teaching :) IMGP0334 IMGP0335 IMGP0336

imgp0353 IMGP0354  On the Kuli'ou'ou hike - Sam did a great job climbing over rocks and hiking up about 1/2 mile of this trail in his new Merrell (!) hikers! He enjoyed chasing me back down about 1/2 mile of the trail from the summit through an ironwood forest. IMGP0356 imgp0357
imgp0361  Ironwoods - I loved this section. So soft to hike through! IMGP0368  PB&J on the summit - yum! IMGP0369 IMGP0372
