Wellllll hellllloooo there!
I know, it’s been awhile. It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks and finding time to blog in the midst of it all is challenging. Ultimately, if it comes down to blogging or doing something fun with the kiddos, spending some quality down time with the hubs, or driving your niece to the Tijuana airport and getting sent to secondary inspection (for those of you not familiar, let’s just say scary), the family always wins out. I’m sure you all understand and let’s face it, you WILL survive waiting a week or two for the next recipe or update on what’s new in the Bagalini household.
That being said, in a little over one week we managed to knock 4 items off the list. I know the goal is to have fun with the items we placed on the list, but as a list maker, make that multiple list maker (thanks Mom), I LOOOVE being able to check something off of a list. So here is an update (you can read Part 1 here) and a few of the reasons I have not been blogging.
Go to the Zoo – Check! Friday Dani and I headed to the Zoo and had a fun afternoon exploring. Surprisingly, it was not too crowded and the weather was San Diego perfect. Dani’s favorite animal was the juvenile tiger (her exact words were I want to lay down and cuddle with it) while mine were the tortoises. Not so cuddly, but the fact that they are 80 – 120 years old amazes me.
Watch Fireworks and Go to the Beach – Check, Check! Some friends of ours offered us an extra camping spot at the last minute so we headed to the beach for 4 awesome days (thank you Amblers). We spent time on the beach, caught up with old friends, the guys surfed, the kids played in and out of the water, we did a bike parade through camp on the 4th and capped the evening off by watching fireworks from the top of our trailer. It was an all around fantastic time, a great way to spend the 4th and reinforced how much we love camping. Hopefully, we can make it an annual event.
Plant a Garden – Done! Just yesterday morning King B and Dani planted the first of what will hopefully be many crops in our new garden boxes. I feel very official and farmer-ish saying “crops”. They planted carrots, salad greens, basil and cilantro. Fingers crossed the seeds sprout and in a few weeks we have some yummy, homegrown eats!
So just checking in to say hi, let you know what we are up to in our little kingdom. How are you all?
