Visit to the Palace of Fine Arts

The Palace of Fine Arts just reopened after a $12M renovation. Janene, Harper Sue, Ira, Rob, and I all headed out to explore this beautiful park next to the Exploratorium.

There where more bird species than Harper has ever seen in one place including swans, mallard ducks, seagulls, and crows. Lot’s of other toddlers where cruising around the pond and palace and the weather was gorgeous.

Harper Sue decided to take a bench break before heading around the pond.

  3. Elissa: Wow, Patti! I'm really impressed--that's an incredible costume! We're hiring you next year to make all our costumes ; )…

Tahoe Pool

One of my main draws to the Resort at Squaw Creek is the pool area. The kiddie pool and adjacent sand box is perfect for entertaining the munchkins. There’s a bigger kids pool (3.5 ft deep) with a slide that goes through the trees for when Harper is older. Selfishly most important is abundance of adult lounge chairs and poolside bar/deli that is well staffed with kind folks who will refill your limeade and bring you turkey wraps while you sit on your ass in the sun.

Aside from staying at the fancy resort we where lucky to have another indulgence: Marina! Her family has a vacation home on Lake Tahoe a mere 2 miles away and the timing worked out perfectly with her rendezvousing with her mom and sis and popping over for a couple hours during the day and evening to give me some time to lay in the sun & read and Rob and I a chance to attend a Moby DJ set and friends BBQ during the evenings.

Fingers and Toes

Harper Sue is a pretty lucky girl… both to have all her toes AND to have Rob as her Dada.

  1. Sue Woodruff: Never imagined counting fingers and toes could be so much fun. Really charming clip of Rob and Harper Sue .Loved…

  2. nanci corzine: So good to see you, Rob, with Harper and having so much fun... lessons on what's important. What a joy…
