down to there hair

So we finally gave Cassidy a haircut yesterday; it was getting a little out of control. It's still not exactly a crew cut (his curls are still there!) but it's out of his eyes now, and he doesn't have as much of the feral child look. We'll see if people continue to assume he's a girl (even when he's all in blue with a dinosaur shirt!) because he's so beautiful.

We spent some time yesterday blowing bubbles, as you can see. He really enjoyed it. He's also got a new Dr. Seuss-themed bib, which he's more ambivalent about.

chicken farm

So it turns out that the tradition in our neighborhood is to celebrate Fourth of July by creating your own personal all-night fireworks celebration. Last year, we were not very amused to be woken up at 3 AM by M-80s going off outside, so we decided to go up to Point Reyes this year for some peace and quiet.

It was wonderful! We stayed at a cottage in Olema. Cassidy had a great time feeding the chickens and checking out the kitties. Holly also managed to enjoy herself at the local shops. We didn't get in any hiking or kayaking (next time!), but we did drive out to the lighthouse, and got pastries and ice cream, which were delicious.
