Tracy Aviary-Select Health Team Volunteer Project

Part of my department at work volunteered at our local Tracy Aviary to help with some landscaping/yard work. It was so much fun and beautiful. We helped plant a huge heavy tree. 




We dug for days then pulled out this giant tree root and then put the new tree in its place. 



Taking a much needed break


TADA!!!!
My favorite tool was the pick ax. :)

This is our team photo when our job was done.
Janine, Scott, Kathy, Stephanie (ME), and Bob who wore his bird shirt. LOL

When we were done breaking our backs we got a quick tour of the aviary. 





It was a wonderful day!!!

Memorial Day

Our holiday weekend was wonderful. We got together with my family and went and saw a movie and then had a delicious BBQ. 

Memorial Day was a perfect day. It was one of those days that all the food tasted good, everyone had good spirits, the weather was fantastic, even the drivers were polite. It was just a wonderful day. 
We started the day off with a hike to Rocky Mouth Canyon. It was a fun kid friendly hike about 1 mile round trip. 































You know the hike was a good one if you needed to shower afterwards. 




Following the hike we went to Cafe Rio for lunch. It was noon an there was NO LINE. And my entire meal for the three of us was $0.85. Ahem perfect day!! :)

Afterwards we went to this dessert place called Create. There I created a lemon raspberry cro-nut! It was my first time ever having a cronut and it was AAAAAAAAMAZING!!!!!

After lunch we went to a new park. The park was so so but we still had fun. 




After getting cleaned up from the hike we cuddled on the couch with some snacks and a movie. 
Liv was so tired from the events of the day she snuck a nap in while I was folding laundry. 
As a family we went to dinner and then got shakes. I had a peanut butter chocolate oreo shake. IT WAS SO GOOD!!!
Then we watched another movie and the kids went to bed while Lars and I got some adult time. Such a fun holiday and perfect kick off to summer. YAY!!!
