What happened to June?!

I can't believe over a month has passed since my last post.  All of June...poof!...gone in an instant!  I feel like my mom was just here...but here we are in July.  Not sure how it happened.  I do know that somehow most of June I was not on my computer, or on Facebook, or even checking emails much really.  I guess it is a good sign that we were too busy having fun. 

The first week of June, Sam turned six.  We celebrated by bringing his best buddy, Ben and Ben's little brother Billy to Legoland for the day.

A few weeks later, Sam completed his first official year of school. 
I predict good things for my boy who loves to learn!

In mid June, Keith's parents accompanied us for an adult night out in
San Diego to see my latest favorite singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov.
Patrick Park opened up for him and he was pretty impressive too...
but Gregory is for sure my current favorite. 
It was at a hipster coffee shop/recording studio and it was so small and intimate and I am much too nerdy of a mom to be hangin' at a place like this but I enjoyed every minute of it.  Add the delicious and unique pizza we enjoyed before the show to the enlightening conversation we had with the pizza creator who escaped from Afghanistan in the 80's and it was quite a welcome break from our usual routine. 

We tried to celebrate Father's Day but that day turned into a bust when the stomach flu reared it's ugly head in the middle of the day, 15 minutes before one of my best friends arrived for a visit.  Jen was brave and came anyway, since they had just spent 8 hours in the car getting here.  I quickly disinfected every hard surface in the house but apparently that didn't help.  Three days later, Ethan and I joined the Puke Fest 2010.  Luckily it came and went quickly.  We shared our flu bug and they let us borrow a cough/cold from Lucas.  And we still had a great week...germs and all! 

We wrapped up the month by meeting up with my sisters and their families in Lake Tahoe.  We celebrated my sister's 40th birthday, enjoyed the beach and the time with family.

Poof!  That is June in a nutshell.  I feel like we are in a time warp. 
How are we already a week into July???! 
Sam's Summer is over August 16th. Time...please slow down!
