It was a mini Hanks family reunion at the Giants game Saturday night! Most of the stars aligned that evening – sandwiches from Hennessey's, hanging with some of my very favorite people, and an angel friend who saved my bacon babysitting my kids when I realized last minute that it was supposed to be a date with Jake instead of a date with Rushton… 😬 Only a Giants win could have made it better! ️

We finally did the follow up hearing test from Logan's tubes/adenoids removal surgery back in February, and this was definitely his favorite doctors appointment EVER. He keeps asking to go back! Hopefully we won't ever be back there, but his ears are getting goopy again with a runny nose, so who knows… #perfecthearing #butdefinitelyselective

Second grade for Rushton and kindergarten for Hailey start today! They're not even one ounce nervous, but I almost shed a tear. In related news, Jake was trying to hurry Logan along this morning (get him dressed), Logan freaked out and resisted, (as babies do when you're in a rush), he started sobbing, and then he barfed all over Jake. So after changing, Jake hurried the big kids to school while I stayed home with Logan and cleaned up barf. Sigh. Barf is the worst.

After a busy weekend of camping, soccer, school shopping, church, and general kid shenanigans, we finished out the night with a mini block party and dinner of homemade guacamole and fresh peach milkshakes. Rushton proclaimed this to be the best summer ever. I agree! #nowpleasegobacktoschoolIMMEDIATELY

We explored, s'mored, chased raccoons, almost stepped on a tarantula, viewed from the summit, and hopped around some really cool rocks. Can't believe I've lived here almost 2 years and it was my first time in Mt. Diablo! Certainly won't be my last. But no more tarantulas, please.
