The gardens are in full bloom at Filoli Estate, a nice mid-day retreat for the family. The only issue with this place is the need to immediately visit a garden center and try to recreate it!

We got back to the beach last Sunday afternoon. It's become routine, when weather permits, to head west with a van full of beach gear and a hot thermos of apple cider. It costs barely anything, and everyone comes back sandy and relaxed.

We drove to Auburn for an overnight and dined at our favorite "Bootleggers" restaurant in Old Town, then made our way up to Sugarbowl for a day of spring skiing. I am now officially the slowest one down the mountain. Pretty soon the girls will be both faster and taller than me.

Her actual 9th birthday was small but special. We had good family friends over for playtime, made doll crowns, and ate a double-decker home made birthday cake. Noelle you amaze me. Happy Nine Years!
